There are a few studios that have yoga in Havertown. Here are the places that I know about.
There is Tri-Yoga in Havertown on West Chester Pike. The style is a bit esoteric but quite meditative and structured. I have only been to a few classes here and the space is quite small and intimate.
There are a few levels of yoga here and if you are a beginner then you will probably feel pretty intimidated if you go to an intermediate or above class. I appreciate how there is not a lot of talking from the teacher in the class so you can really tune into what is going on in your body and heart.
This studio has monthly full moon classes which I still have yet to get to. I often am teaching couples yoga in Manayunk on Friday nights so full moon yoga or candlelight yoga is very tricky for me to get to. When I do have a Friday night off, I usually want to veg at home or go out and get a yoga sabbatical.
The location is quite convenient, right of West Chester Pike and plenty of parking. This studio has a big emphasis on community events such as potlucks etc every few months and it is a very warm group of people that teach and attend classes there.
There is also East Eagle Yoga, located at 18E. Eagle Rd., Havertown, which has classes for beginners, intermediates, advanced/vinyasa, kids, and pilates. Parking is a bit of a hassle here. I came here a few months ago and went to the lot in the back and the machines that take the quarters were not working so I had to re-park two blocks away and ended up being later for the class than I expected.
It's a nice big studio with traditional sun salutations, so if you want a vinyasa yoga class in Havertown, then this is a good choice if you don't mind some parking hassles.
There is also Cerca Trova yoga which I haven't been to yet on Darby Rd. Cerca Trova has a variety of yoga classes from Scaravelli Inspired Hatha Yoga, Vinyasa Flow and Power Yoga . It is on Darby Rd, actually down the street from East Eagle Yoga. Parking can be a bit tricky here too but not as tricky as East Eagle Yoga. I haven't been to a class here yet but have been wanting to try out their Monday morning restorative class.
There are also the Tuesday late morning classes and evening classes that I teach at the Healing Touch on Darby Road as well as the but this is not a traditional hatha yoga class. We don't do a bunch a sun salutations and you're not going to get Taylor Lautner's abs from this class.
This class is aimed at people that want something gentle and restorative and they might not be in great shape. If you are intimidated or scared or yoga and just want an invigorating class that will help to release pain and stiffness then this is an appropriate choice then.
In the Healing Touch there are other healing and personal growth modalities that range from acupressure to a Wise Women's cafe that meets once a week. There is also ballroom and belly dancing so there are all kinds of funky classes and workshops that are happening here.
In a 10 minute drive there are actually three full-fledged yoga studios so there are some solid options for yoga in Havertown, PA which range from gentle, restorative, meditative to a more active, vinyasa and hatha styles.
