The other day, I was mindlessly scrolling through my Instagram feed when I came across this video of a New York City socialite of sorts, getting her groove on in a Beyonce-inspired dance class. The envy that I felt was absurd. All I could think was, Why isn’t every dance studio in Philadelphia hosting hourly Beyonce-themed dance classes, every single day?! Whyyy? (Dramatic, I know) And then Philly Dance Fitness came along with their Bootylicious Beyonce Twerkshop. Yep, that’s right: A Twerkshop.

Last year, the dance studio hosted Beyonce-themed dance classes and Twerkshop classes, and after tons of requests to bring these favorites back, the studio decided to combine the two, creating the 90-minute workshop of everyone’s dreams. (Okay, maybe not everyone.) During the workshop, participants will, first, learn how to twerk. Then they will “pop, grind, shake and wind through 90 minutes of nonstop dance routines,” to the beat of Beyonce tunes, of course.

Good news, fellow yogis: I think we might have uncovered the best-kept secret in Philly. And anyone who knows me knows that I can’t keep a secret to save my life, so here it goes: Bikram Yoga Philadelphia hosts donation-only yoga classes Every. Single. Day. The classes are run by Philly Yoga Factory, a yoga collective founded last summer by Justine Bacon and Bikram Philadelphia owner Katelynn Ingersoll. And if you’re not into Bikram, no worries: They also hold vinyasa, anusara and hoop dancing (!!) classes, as well. (Note: The first two are heated, but only to around 90 degrees, which is 15 degrees cooler than Bikram; the hoop dance classes are not heated at all.)

I spoke with Justine to get the inside scoop on what PYF is all about, so consider this a little required reading for your first class. Then head over to the studio and join in on the fun.
