Yogis, get your calendars ready! From April 25th through the 30th, Washington, D.C. is hosting the annual DC Yoga Week, a refreshing attempt to bring people together to share their love of yoga and all the wonderful things it does for the mind and body. During DC Yoga Week, Washington, DC area yoga studios offer free and $5.00 classes. The week-long event is designed to increase awareness about the benefits of yoga and meditation and encourage greater physical health and well-being. Most people are hesitant to join a yoga studio without having a significant amount of experience, so this exposure is just what those people need. At a low-cost commitment, individuals get the chance to see for themselves!
If you are only a few hours from the city and are looking for a weekend getaway that promotes mindfulness, health and fun, this just might be the weekend to come! Near our dupont circle bed and breakfast, there is the Bikram Yoga D.C. studio that will help you sweat out the toxins in no time.
Last year, thousands of people flocked to the Washington Monument to participate in the 3 hour group session as sponsored and put on by the D.C. Community of Yoga. Take a look!
