Yes, it’s technically the first day of Spring. But if you’re having a hard time picturing warm sunshine, bright flowers, and general post-winter happiness in the midst of this last-minute snowstorm, we’re right there with you.

So to help us put this frigid winter squarely behind us, we thought it appropriate to take a few minutes to dream about warmer climes and picture ourselves on sandy beaches, with the help of a few upcoming yoga retreats that sound pretty darn perfect right about now. All the juicy details are below.  Read more »

You might know Philly’s Duross & Langel for their wonderfully scented handcrafted soaps (or perfumes or lotions, which I slather all over myself on the daily), but you probably don’t know them for their fitness offerings. Well, that’s all about to change: Our friends over at Shoppist tell us the brand just opened a yoga studio next to their beloved 13th Street boutique.

Why You Won’t Find Me in a Yoga Class

I’m no stranger to doing things that make me uncomfortable. When I first began dabbling in CrossFit last year, I worried about walking into a new kind of workout, with new people speaking a fitness language all their own, and finding that I wouldn’t fit in. But I took the first step — then the second, and the third — and I haven’t looked back since.

Which is why it continues to puzzle me that I just can’t get into yoga — that is, yoga classes at yoga studios with other yoga students. I’m happy as a clam doing yoga in the privacy of my own living room with the help of a video. But a class? It’s just not for me, and I don’t think I’m alone in this.  Read more »

You know that “Namastay in bed” quote, a mainstay on most Instagram feeds? Well, here’s a different take on it: Raw vegan foods chef Lisa Ransing and yoga instructor Gabrelle Sigal, of Amrita Yoga and Trifecta Fit, are teaming up to host a month-long BYOB yoga and raw vegan dinner series called Namaste for Dinner in Fishtown this April.

Here’s the gist: First, attendees will get their downward dog on with Sigal, then they’ll chow down on good stuff like burgers (raw and vegan, of course) with sundried-tomato ketchup and smokey cashew aioli, home-brewed kombucha and coconut chocolate pudding, all made by Ransing. Namaste for Dinner — get it?  Read more »

You know what’s even better than hot cocoa on a snow day? Hot yoga. It warms you up and, at the end of the day, makes you feel like you did something other than sit on your couch watching Criminal Minds and drinking Swiss Miss for 12 hours straight. Plus, it only takes 90-minutes max — so you actually can sit around watching Criminal Minds while drinking Swiss Miss for the rest of your day. Now, that’s what I call a win-win.

A lot of yoga studios have taken a snow day today (we don’t blame them), but a few are keeping their doors open. Below, four hot yoga classes to trek to in Philly this afternoon. Read more »
