Eateries and Groceries

There are a number of amazing restaurants and food options near Sid Yoga Center, right in the heart of Towson’s city. Zias Cafe, San Sushi Too/Thai One On, 7 West Bistro Grille, The Health Concern and Indian Cuisine are within walking distance and are highly recommended.  Traders Joes and Starbucks are also within walking distance. Towson has a Fresh Market (comparable to Whole Foods) and is only a 1/2 mile away.  Atwater’s cafe and MOM’s organic market are about a 5 minute drive.

Weather & Clothing

Early Fall in Maryland is warm and pleasant with average daily temperatures in the upper 70′s and lows in the mid 60′s. 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.


The Sheraton Baltimore North Hotel and The Towson University Marriott Conference Hotel are two great nearby lodging options. Both are located within a 1/2 mile of the studio.  The Holiday Inn in Timonium is 5 miles away (estimated travel time is 10 minutes). Baptiste does not have a group rate set up at a specific hotel, we find that our participants tend to prefer to make their own arrangements.

We recommend Christopherson Business Travel should you wish to book your
flights, lodging, or ground transport for your training.

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


You are responsible for maintaining a healthy level of hydration throughout the training.  Because you will be continuously sweating and losing fluids throughout asana practice, 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 with you to maintain healthy hydration. 

What to Bring (may not be inclusive)

    • Journal and pen
    • Yoga Props: Mat, Strap, Block
    • Refillable water bottle
    • Ultima, Gatorade, or other electrolyte replenishment powder
    • Yoga clothes for 4 days
    • Bring a back pack or other bag to the program daily, including a few changes of clothing, lunch/snacks, and anything you’ll need for the day
    • Towels or Yogi Toes for asana practice
