DC YOGA WEEK 2013 IS HERE!
The DC Community of Yoga (DCCY) is hosting the 8th Annual DC Yoga Week and Yoga on the Mall Monday, April 29 thru Sunday, May 5. This means participating studios will be offering FREE and $5 classes daily – all week long!
Throughout the week, DCCY will provide many opportunities to bring our kula together and highlight Member Studios’ and Partners’ offerings to the Greater DC area. The week will culminate with Yoga on the Mall, a free all-level outdoor community class on Sunday, May 5 from from 11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. John Schumacher, Patty Ivey, Kevin Waldorf-Cruz, and Greg Marzullo will lead our Yoga on the Mall class while Member Studios and Partners will have a teacher practicing on stage as well as teachers assisting yogis on their mats.
This year we have over 40 studios and partners participating! All Member Studios are offering free and $5 classes throughout the week. Many come to the mat for the first time at our studios while many more try a new style of practice or studio.
