You might’ve seen Jake Panasevich around before. He teaches at Maha Yoga on 16th and Sansom, writes about yoga for U.S. News, and was recently featured in Men’s Health. For the past six months, he’s also been the yoga trainer for the Philadelphia Union, Philly’s Major League Soccer team. If you’re sitting there thinking, ”That’s cool, but what the heck is a yoga trainer?” trust me, you’re not alone.

I chatted with Jake last week to learn a little more about what exactly a yoga trainer for a pro sports team does, how a regular practice has been received by the players, and why yoga is so darn important for cross-training.  Read more »

Calling all yogis: Yoga studio Grace and Glory Yoga is slated to open its new location in South Kensington on September 6th, and you—yes, you!—are invited to the grand opening.

Some of you might already be familiar with G&G:  The studio, which also has two locations in South Jersey, has been hosting this summer’s Urban Yoga Philly series in the courtyard of Oxford Mills in South Kensington for the past few months. Oxford Mills also just so happens to be where the new studio will be located, so it only makes sense that the grand opening would coincide with the very last Urban Yoga Philly class of the season.

Detox Retox: Do Yoga and Drink Beer


What do you get when you combine yoga and beer? Detox Retox and some very happy Philadelphians. On August 3rd, Core Fitness and City Tap House are teaming up for the first time to put on an event that will be as rigorous as it is refreshing.

Starting at 10 a.m., join yoga instructors Cindy Brown and Sandy Aurelia for a 50-minute class on the outdoor patio of City Tap House, followed by a cold draft beer inside.

Group fitness instructor Lauren Rybas spoke to event saying, “[Core Fitness] has a social group of people that already go out after a workout, and we thought we would combine the two.” So whether you’re a yoga lover, beer drinker, or someone who just needs to spice up their Sundays, the first-ever Detox Retox has something for you. Tickets are $20, and include the class and a beer. Purchase them at the door or by emailing

And for those of you looking to brunch afterwards (it is Sunday after all), stick around and check out the City Tap House’s brunch menu. Reservations are encouraged, but walk-ins will be accepted as well.
