Non-fluffy flexibility-promoting exercise classes in Philadelphia?

Where can I get the body workout without the soul workout - in Philadelphia? I'd like to find an exercise class that focuses on flexibility and reducing tension - without the spiritual stuff usually abundant in yoga classes.

Yes, this is basically the same question as this post
, just a different city.
I recently moved to Philly for a somewhat (and increasingly) stressful desk job that I nonetheless really like. The stress is taking a toll on my shoulders and neck especially. I fully recognize that yoga is the answer - but the spiritual aspect of yoga classes is completely unappealing and distracting to me. (I'm glad it works for so many people, but I'm just not one of them.)
Can anyone recommend a non-spiritual
exercise class that will focus on reducing tension and increasing flexibility?
Snowflake details: Bonus points if it's in West Philly, but I'll consider going anywhere within the city accessible by public transit. I've heard that bikram yoga might be a good option, but I'm a complete wuss about hot weather...anything above 75 degrees and I'm already uncomfortable.
