Happy snow day, Washington D.C.! I hope you are enjoying the 4-day weekend, were able to snag some half-price fancy chocolate now that Valentine's Day is over, and are feeling strong and fearless enough to brave the rest of winter. Here's what I've got going on for ya:
FREE (!!!) class at Past Tense Yoga in Mt. Pleasant. Level 1.5 Flow - Saturday, February 21 @ 4 p.m. I'd love to see friendly faces as I audition to join the substitute teaching team at this welcoming, spacious neighborhood yoga studio. Register here!
NOW OPEN! East Side Yoga at 518 10th St NE between F and Maryland Ave. Ridiculously close to Toki Underground and all that H St NE has to offer. I'll be teaching a one-hour, mixed level Energetic Flow class on Thursday nights at 5:30 p.m. Sign up here and you can even snag one week of unlimited classes for $15! More classes will likely be added over the next few weeks/months, so if nothing fits your schedule there now, you might want to follow the studio's page on facebook for updates.
CURVY YOGA LAB - Shoulder and Hip Opening - Saturday, February 28 @ 3 p.m. at Lil Omm in Tenleytown. Think about what happens when you wear shoes that are too tight - how your toes crunch up and your foot gets cramped and spastic. Our bodies react the same way when life scrunches them up for hours a day in front of a computer or when we feel cramped by our calendars and responsibilities. In this decompressing practice we will work tension out of the periphery of the body to create space for the spine. We will seek to gain knowledge (vidya) of our postural habits so that we may find release (moksha) from what is causing us to suffer. Cost: $20.
Extra Lunchtime classes at Yoga NoMa - I'll be guest teaching Lisa Loring's Monday 12:30 p.m. class on February 23 and March 2. And I'm regularly there Wednesdays at 12:30 p.m. and Sundays at 10 a.m. I LOVE teaching at DC's most affordable yoga studio. How is it possible to have experienced teachers leading these classes? Find out.
Next month: Friday night 6 p.m. Prenatal Yoga class at Simon Says Yoga in Bethesda resumes March 6.
