2019 Reno Updates

This page will be used for all things 2019 studio renovation project

The new floors and upgraded heat in the third-floor studio is just the beginning.

Stay tuned for updates on exactly what we’re planning for in the upcoming weeks.  This project is close to our hearts because, after nearly TWENTY years of service, we’re re-establishing ourselves as a dedicated, first-class yoga school in the center of Philadelphia. We are committed, and now we’ll have the upgrades we need to our physical space to thrive for years to come.

Work is scheduled to begin on November 18th.

After months of planning and contractor shopping, we’ve found the perfect fit for the metamorphosis of our sacred space. Sure, we wanted this project to be over by now, but with patience and time, we’ve found a contractor who will work with our schedule, be available, work hastily and full time – until this important job is complete. They were referred by a student, to whom we are grateful.  They are creative and innovative and will work with our timeline and budget.

We still need your help and will be collecting donations, both large and small, to make this a financially sound endeavor. To make a donation, please use the PayPal link below.

The good news is, that through our Philly Yoga Factory program, your donation is 100 percent tax-deductible.
