Most Moksha Yoga Center workshops and special events are held at our Riverwest studio, which is near the intersection of Chicago/Milwaukee/Ogden Avenues at 700 N Carpenter, in the Chicago neighborhood of Riverwest. The studio is about two miles from the downtown loop (Michigan Ave., etc.). Unfortunately, there are no hotels within reasonable walking distance of the studio. Most hotels are located downtown in "The Loop," or north of The Loop near Michigan Avenue and the major shopping areas; approximately 5-10 minutes by taxi, depending on traffic. We suggest you locate hotels by going on the Internet and searching for Chicago Hotels, but here are a few listings (please do your own research for prices and availability - this information isn't necessarily up to date):
