As a Mama, it can be incredibly difficult to put yourself first. Whether you have babies, little ones, or teens, each stage present their own challenges to finding time for yourself. But, as you know, with motherhood comes stress. It’s inevitable. That is why making time for self care is so important for your mental and physical health! I know this is something I struggle with, so I hope that this list of amazing Philadelphia Yoga Studios will take a task off of your list, and get you one step closer to days of self-care.
The Yoga Garden has two locations–one in Narberth, and one in Philadelphia. Since both studios offer drop in classes, class packages, and memberships, you are sure to find an option that fits your needs. And, if you are looking for a truly serene getaway, sign up for one of their yoga retreats! With a focus on creativity, empowerment, and alignment, the yoga instructors guide and encourage students of all levels.
Described as an “urban sanctuary”, Amrita Yoga & Wellness believes that yoga and mindfulness should be accessible to every one. With 10 class types that are beginner friendly, and 15 class types in total, there is zero chance you won’t find the perfect class for your needs. From hot yoga to barre to aerial yoga (!) there are so many varied options at Amrita Yoga & Wellness. This studio offers in-person, live stream, and on demand classes, along with a yearly retreat. And, if you are looking for a deeper connection with your mind, you can sign up for one of the workshops focused on meditation, Ayurveda, massage, or radiant health counseling.
“Alignment architecture; thoughtful sequencing; inspiring & uplifting language” are all things you can expect when taking a yoga class at Sanctuary Yoga & Mindfulness. Three to five minutes of mindfulness practice at the end of each yoga class, along with daily offerings of mindfulness and meditation classes make this studio unique. If you are after a yoga class more specific to your body’s needs, try one of the many workshops offered here.
Through the use of functional, therapeutic movements, Maha specializes in relief of chronic pain and prevention of injuries. Maha Yoga offers nine unique class types, most of which are held both in studio and as a live stream. The class that most caught my eye is called, “Aging Yogis”. This class is taught by yoga teachers over 50, and is therefore designed with the alignment of the aging body in mind. This studio also offers two specialized class that are free or by donation. The first class is for those with Parkinson’s and their caretakers, which is donation based. The free class is a trauma conscious class for veterans, active military, their families and first responders.
