New Year, New You in Nearby Manayunk

The year 2020 is finally in the history books! Now, it’s time to focus on the year to come—which many of us often start with New Year’s resolutions. Getting fit and in shape is usually one of the most common goals. You can definitely get started right at home at your Royal Athena apartment, with your state-of-the-art fitness center. And if you’re looking to add to your routine with a group workout, once area gyms fully reopen, there are plenty of local spots where you can work on your fitness while (safely!) getting some motivation by friends and neighbors.

One space is Hotbox Yoga in nearby Manayunk. The studio teaches yoga and meditation of varying levels, all of which are designed to strengthen the body and mind. In recent months, the space has specialized in virtual power yoga—a well-rounded session accessible to yogis of all abilities and experiences—which has allowed participants to get all the benefits of the practice right from their own homes. You can sign up now to get to work right from your Royal Athena apartment or, if you’d rather the full, in-person experience, gear up for physical classes once the full schedule resumes.

Beyond power yoga, Hotbox offers hybrid classes that involve traditional yoga along with high-intensity interval training, a workout that will sure to have you sweating off the quarantine 15. Once regular operations resume, Hotbox has a range of pricing and membership options. There are single-class, drop-in options, class cards good for a certain number of sessions and monthly and yearly memberships for those who want to really dive into the practice of yoga.

So if your New Year’s resolution involves getting in shape in a new and engaging way, check out Hotbox Yoga’s virtual and in-person options to put your fitness first without traveling far from your Royal Athena apartment.
