  • Yoga District
    Get off at the Dupont Circle Metro, walk a few blocks and then up to the fifth floor of a narrow building to stumble – panting – into Yoga District. Offering some of DC’s least expensive yoga classes, the studio is as basic as they come, with spare rooms that put changing stations, bathrooms and workout areas in close proximity. Still, the actual yoga space, while small, is clean, sun-filled and well-stocked with yoga accoutrements, and freelance teachers regularly come in to teach a range of disciplines, from vinyasa and restorative to yin and yogalates. Yoga District has five other studios around the city, each similar in philosophy and teaching methods.

  • The Studio DC
    The certified teachers at The Studio DC guide students through energizing Vinyasa-flow classes designed to help yogis of all skill sets expand their mind-body practice. The packed schedule contains heated sessions (86?88 degrees) that help to add extra inches to stretches as well as more mild classes (78?82 degrees) that still get sweat glands pumping. Geared toward beginners, the Level 1 Alignment Flow class teaches students the fundamentals of Vinyasa yoga so that they can learn to glide from one pose to the next like well-oiled voguing robots. Body-benders with more practice can salute the sun in an intermediate Vinyasa class, and experienced flexperts can put their strength and endurance to the test with arm balances, backbends, inversions, and circular fire breathing in Power Flow 2.
