Have you heard? 

  • PiYo class: Our 5 week series of PiYo just ended. However, Sunday class will continue and is now open to all members to use Glofox credits or a $10 drop-in for the next few weeks only. This fusion of Pilates moves and Yoga poses will help you gain strength and flexibility while toning and sculpting! Check out PiYo before committing to our next 5 week series.
  • Kids’ Yoga: Don’t forget that we now offer a weekly class for kids ages 5-10 on Thursdays at 4:45pm. Only $6 per child when you pre-book through our Glofox app or online scheduling platform. Yoga is quickly becoming a great way to keep our youth healthy, flexible and active. It’s never too early (or late!) to start yoga.    
  • Pre/PostNatal Yoga: Our 6 week series is coming to an end, but look out for our Spring session in April/May to be announced soon!
  • New Hot Yoga Class: Don’t forget that we now offer Hot Yoga on Sundays at 5:30pm with our newest instructor, Nina! Please note that Hot Yoga classes are separate from our Main Studio. $10 cash only.
  • Candlelight Community Yoga: Our Instructors-in-Training begin their student teaching this month! Show your support on Fridays at 5:45pm…just $5!
  • Acro Sunday Funday: Our bi-weekly partner yoga classes are going strong. Next one is on Sunday 3/12 and then again on Sunday 3/26. Don’t forget to pre-book on the app! Our 1st Family Acro class was a huge hit…look out for another in April!


  • Studio Yoga Mats: As we continue to make improvements to our studio, we would like to clarify that yoga mats are for the use of brand new members on their first visit. We ask that all students who try a class and plan to continue the practice of yoga, to invest in their own mat. This way you may choose the correct length, size and density to suit your individual needs. The downstairs Hot Yoga studio provides black yoga mats that are already placed down on the floor. You may place your own yoga mat on top for extra support. We ask that you please wipe down all mats after use. Do not roll up any studio mats that may still be wet, as this can become unsanitary. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
  • Lost and Found: If you have left behind a water bottle, yoga mat or other personal item, please make sure to check the yoga studio. Items not claimed by the end of each month will be recycled. There is a lost and found located in the hot yoga ladies’ changing room, as well as a cubby in the Main Studio or see an instructor. Thank you.
  • Stay Up-to-Date: Don’t forget to give us a like for daily schedule updates on our Facebook Page and follow us on Instagram and Twitter too!
  • As always, thank you for your continued support and smiles. 🙂

Happy March! Happy Spring!

~Fellow Yoga and Wine Lovers….next month, Saturday May 10th, two events will be taking place that you won’t want to miss. The Twisted Monkey will be at both of them. 😉 

*Yogis…join us at Namas Day. The Twisted Monkey is one of several sponsors of this Philly Area Yoga Festival. Enjoy a free-spirited day filled with several yoga classes and workshops you can choose from, taught by some well-regarded and renowned Yoga Instructors. For more info and to purchase your tickets visit:


*Wine Lovers…After a fun day of yoga, treat yourself to a fun evening of wine and food. The Philadelphia Wine & Food Festival is back again! No yoga classes, but over 600 wines from around the world to sample. (Yoga in a bottle?) You can also sample dishes from some of the hottest restaurants in Philly. A silent auction will take place to benefit the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. For more info and to purchase your tickets visit: .

~Sign-ups for our May event are currently available. Friday, May 2nd, 7pm-8:30pm, join us for our first ever “YogaR Workshop!” Yoga-Rhythmics is a unique combination of yoga and intuitive dance. This workshop is for women only. Prepayment of $15 is required to reserve your spot. Info and sign-ups are available at the studio only, but will open up to the public soon…so stay tuned!

~We have some exciting news to share. One of our very own instructors, Veronica, is currently a student of Beyond Asana Yoga Teacher Training. As part of her commitment, she will be travelling with fellow students and teachers to Malawi, Africa with the BuildOn organization to help build a school. To support her on her journey, her Tuesday night 7pm Power-Vinyasa class will become a DONATION BASED only class beginning on May 6th through October 21st. What this means is that for that length of time, we will not be accepting class cards, Groupons, Living Social vouchers or gift certificates. Instead, we hope you will join us in helping Veronica raise the money needed to fulfill her dream and mission. We recommend the $10 class price, but whether you have $5, $10, less or more, any bit you can contribute will be appreciated. To read her story or if you’d like to donate, visit her Fundraising page:

~Continued renovations will be taking place in the main-level studio. We apologize in advance for the dust and mess. Over the next few months (and through the Summer) we will be making some great improvements! Thanks for your support and understanding!

~Have a great week! Namaste.
