Mission Statement

Move with love is a judgement-free space where all bodies can come together -regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, sexual expression, ability, and/or economic status – to use movement to incite change, transformation, and liberation. It is a practice of unconditional love, health, growth, and acceptance – for oneself and for the world at large. We believe that we affect each-other, we are better together, and that love is the great equalizer.


Move with love
A space
where the dreamers,
the visionaries,
the makers,
the movers,
the shakers,
Those who have been lost
and then found
and then lost again many a times over-
All Choose to come together
To believe in something bigger.
It is a practice.
It begins small.
It starts with the breath.
Becomes a word and some
pep in your step.
It builds to a series of
breaths, of words, of steps.
A mind reset.
A mantra.
A daily commitment.
A conversation.
A connection.
A contagion of kindness.
A reminder that it is
worth it to move with love.
And again.
And again.

Founder's Story

Move with Love began as a personal mantra and has since grown into a movement philosophy grounded in the love of self and of community.

I was born and raised here in Mt. Airy and, after over a decade of dancing and teaching yoga across New York City, have found myself calling this neighborhood home again.

My personal romance with movement began on the streets of Philly, with a pair of hot pink roller skates my mother gave me for a roller dance class. From there it developed into a BFA in Dance from the University of the Arts and an apprenticeship with the Martha Graham Dance Company. I was living my childhood dream in New York City, forcing my body to be the strongest and the “best,” and I had never felt more isolated and insecure in my life.

I realized, through yoga, that what inspired me most about the practice of movement wasn’t pushing my body to see what it could do but, instead, creating community and seeing what we could do. The community I cultivated through movement practices was equally, if not more, healing than the movement itself. So I have returned home to Philly, to move with love in the place that raised me with so much love.


The Team

Hi! I am Holly (she/her/hers) , but you can call me Bird.  I have had a love affair with movement my entire life and it all began in a roller dance class in Mt.Airy. Those skates became a BFA in Modern dance from University of The Arts in Philadelphia. Modern dance led me to NYC where I danced for local companies and apprenticed with The Martha Graham Dance Company. Dance brought me into the world of yoga, where I searched for a movement practice that uplifted vs critiqued and used the body to transform the mind. I have 10,000+ hours of teaching under my belt, 1000+ hours of training from Yoga to Positive psychology to anatomy, I have led 30+ Yoga teacher trainings, and I have 15 years of teaching experience within New York City, Seattle, California, and Philadelphia. I have taught on the Steps of the Brooklyn Museum and Yoga at Bryant Park, as well as,  for numerous studios- Yoga to the People, Vera Yoga, Tangerine, Heatwise, Jewel City Yoga, YogaSpark, The Yoga Room, NP Rock, and currently teaches in and around New York City and Philadelphia. My classes are a combination of all of my training- dance, vinyasa yoga, hatha, restorative, Katonah yoga, meditation, breath-work, prenatal/postnatal, applied positive psychology, and art. They are filled with love, levity, play, spirituality, and Philly sass. My classes are inspired by the world around me and the world within me which makes them creative, alignment-based, and themed practices that can revolve around a myriad of topics from a painting at The Met to an ancient yoga text. Mainly, I want to empower my students to feel good in the body they live in one breath at a time and to always trust their inner teacher.

Studio Etiquette

Better Early than Late!

Arrive 10 – 15 minutes prior to the start of class. Time is a commodity and it is fleeting fast. This means we lock the front door and start right on time! We want you to get every minute out of your practice – you deserve it!

Leave the outside world behind!

Please leave your cell phones silent or on do not disturb in the cubbies by the bathroom. If you must have it beside your yoga mat, this might not be the best time for you to practice because you are needed elsewhere.

Make space!

We line up off the pink dots (by the sides of the room) so that there is plenty of room for folks as they enter to practice.

Leave it better than you found it!

We ask that you spray down and clean your rental mats/blocks after every class. Hang up the wet mats to dry. Put away the bolsters, blocks, and neatly fold the blankets. If you've had tea, please wash your teacups in the bathroom, and leave to dry on the rack by water cooler.

Scent free!

No strong perfumes or scents, some friends might be allergic or sensitive to certain smells.

Information is Key!

Please inform the teacher before class of any injuries, medical conditions, pregnancy or other concerns so that we can best assist your body.

You are the boss!

We offer the option for hands on assists– please let us know if this is not for you AND you are ALWAYS welcomed to change your mind either for them or against them.

This is not boot camp!

We offer suggestions and you make the decisions because no one knows your body like you do. Listen to your body, take breaks when you need, and keep going when you can. Childs pose or a yoga nap is always welcomed!

Stay for the whole shebang!

Endings are just as important as beginnings, please don’t leave until class has finished, there’s power in closure.

This is a Practice, not a performance!

In this space, it is not about touching your toes, or getting it right, or fitting into some preconceived notion of a shape or body size, you are good, you are loved, and you are enough. Please be kind to you and move with love.


We require a one-time proof of vax to enter the studio. You can email it to info@movewithlove.com Or, bring your vaccination/picture of the card with you.

Don’t worry, we have all had a first time AND we all made it to the other side and so will you! First things first, be kind to yourself and take things at your own pace. Let the teacher know, so they can give you a little extra TLC. Set up your mat in the middle of the space so you have a 360’ degree reference of folks around you. Wear comfy workout clothes. Any of our classes are welcoming to beginners unless otherwise noted.

Don’t worry, we gotcha, please spray and clean your mat after class.

We do not have lockers. But we do have cubbies to store your valuables. The studio will be locked once class starts and will remain locked until class has finished.
