Priya Hot Yoga is about to become new kid on the block, as far as Philly yoga studios are concerned. The hot yoga studio is set to open next month at 1828 Callowhill Street in Fairmount, just around the corner from Whole Foods Market.

“There’s a lot of great energy in that neighborhood,” says co-owner Katie Sandy. “I think it’s just a very positive neighborhood, and we thought it could use something like this.”

Sandy and her two business partners, Eve D’Onofrio and Kristen King, are all yoga enthusiasts and wanted to bring a yoga studio centered on community to the Fairmount area. To wit: In addition to practice space, Priya will have a front-of-house cafe with packaged snacks and drinks from Pure Fare, Down Dog Healing Cafe, and Inspired Brews kombucha. They’ll have space for lounging before and after class, and a sit-and-eat bar with stools along the front windows.
