helpful studio tips



If it is your first time visiting our studio:

  • Arrive for class 10-15 minutes early. Always be sure to check-in at the front desk to handle any payments, and we'll have you sign our waiver & get you acclimated to the studio!
  • You may bring water into the studio. However, we ask that you keep food or any other perishables with a strong odor at home.
  • If you need to change before class, please do so in the designated changing areas. Our restrooms can also be used, but please be mindful that we only have a few restrooms for a lot of students! 
  • Only mats, towels and water are allowed in any studio. Absolutely no phones, purses etc. We lock all doors behind us so the storage area is secure during class and we have security cameras as well. 
  • Please alert your instructor to any injuries, or if you are pregnant, prior to class. If you need assistance during class, please quietly raise your hand as to not interrupt the class flow for other students! You are always encouraged to take breaks throughout class whenever needed.
  • Please, be sure to leave your jewelry and valued belongings at home. Philly Power Yoga & Thrive Pilates are not responsible for lost or stolen items. It is very easy to take off jewelry in the middle of class and forget to pick it up when leaving, avoid the possibility altogether by taking it off at home.

For All Students, In All Classes:

  • When you set your mat up on the floor, please be courteous and make sure to provide space for all students in class.
  • After class, please clean up your space by putting all props away. If you are in the Thrive studio, please be sure to spray and wipe your mat.
  • You are welcome to use the time before class for meditation or gentle stretching. Feel free to chat quietly with your neighbor, but please be respectful of anyone that may be silent before class.
  • We recommend practicing on an empty stomach, however a light snack prior to class will be fine if you cannot wait. 
  • Please be aware of personal hygiene and be mindful of air quality (deodorant is great, strong perfumes and colognes are not and please remember to wash your yoga mat!)

Pre-Natal Yoga & Pre-natal Pilates:

We highly recommend that if you are planning to become pregnant, you begin or maintain your pre-natal Pilates/Yoga routine (with doctors approval of course). Not only does a regular pre-natal exercise routine help with a healthy and fit pregnancy, but previous experience with Pilates and movement is recommended by most doctors before starting a pre-natal Pilates or Yoga exercise regime during pregnancy.


We provide all props for pre-natal Pilates & Yoga.  Your own yoga mat is recommended for pre-natal yoga.
