Coming from outside the area?

Most of our students are from outside the Western Pennsylvania area. When traveling to Inner Strength, they have found the following information useful:



Two Airports are within an 1 to 1.5 hours drive to Inner Strength. The largest is the Pittsburgh International Airport, and the other is the Arnold Palmer Airport in Latrobe. We are on the opposite side of Pittsburgh from the airport, so when booking your flights, if you need to travel through Pittsburgh during rush hour, plan on a two hour commute.



There are car rental agencies at both airports. If you wish to use cab/shuttle service, the local taxi service from Vandergrift is Byers Taxi,

phone 724-567-5667.


Local Accommodations 


We welcome you to stay at our onsite retreat house, called CHI House. We have 4 bedrooms with shared bath, kitchen, living room and dining room. Rooms are $65/$70 a night.


Leechburg is a small rural town, one sweet B&B ( if you want to stay at the Old Parsonage, book early for your class). Some of the neighboring small towns provide bed and breakfast accommodations.
