Parking 

The best place to park is at the Sheraton Hotel at 36Th and Market, two blocks from the studio. There is no parking at the studio site, however there are meters and street parking in the area.

Eateries | Groceries

There are a number of eateries on Lancaster Avenue (same street as Power Yoga Works) as well as several good options on 36th and Walnut, just 2 blocks from the studio.  

Weather | Clothing 

Weather in Philadelphia is usually nice in the spring with temperatures in the 50s and 60s. 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.

Cancellation Protection

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.

Hydration

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.

  • Yoga block
  • Towels for asana practice
  • Refillable water bottle
