For students staying in hotels in downtown Cleveland, there is the Euclid Healthline that runs a bus along Euclid starting at Public Square with a stop directly in front of Cleveland Yoga.
Below are two hotel options. The Baptiste Institute does not have a group rate setup at a hotel.
We recommend Christopherson Business Travel should you wish to book your flights, lodging, or ground transport for your training.
Parking is metered ($2.00 per hour) and the lots are directly behind Cleveland Yoga as well as on E 116th. For cars planning to be parked all day, utilize the Ford Drive parking garage, which is $10.00 for the day.

Historically weather in early August in Cleveland can range from 75 – 90 degrees, depending on the summer. Not exceptionally rainy or dry, but fairly humid.
During program, plan to wear sportswear acceptable for practicing yoga (wicking material, no cotton) and bring layers to cover up during seated discussion or partner work. There are often 2-3 yoga asana practices throughout the day, so we recommend bringing at least two changes of yoga clothes per day.
Travel Guard offers affordable trip protection plans that guard against an extensive list of reasons for cancelation. Specifically, we recommend The Gold plan from Travel Guard which offers you protection against trip cancelation, baggage loss or delay, medical expenses and other issues that could occur while you are away from home. Call us for more details or visit Travel Guard online.
This offer is available to those who are US and Canadian residents only, however if you reside outside of those countries we do recommend that you make arrangements for travel protection elsewhere.
You are responsible for maintaining a healthy level of hydration throughout the training. Because you will be continuously sweating and losing fluids throughout asana practices, you should balance this by consistently taking in fluids. In addition to your normal water intake, we strongly suggest that you also drink electrolyte replenishment fluid throughout each day. The amount you will need will vary depending on your size and your activity level. Please note that we do NOT provide Ultima or other powder; you are responsible for bringing a sufficient amount of electrolyte powder for the duration of the program.
