DC Community Yoga (DCCY) is hosting the Ninth Annual DC Yoga Week and Yoga on the Mall, Monday, April 28 to Saturday, May 3. This year, over 30 studios in the Washington metro area, including Virginia and Maryland, have signed up to participate by offering free and reduced-cost classes daily all week long.

Throughout the week, DCCY will provide many opportunities to bring our community together and highlight member studios and partner offerings to the greater D.C., area. The week will culminate with Yoga on the Mall, a gathering of over 2,000 yoga practitioners and enthusiasts that features free all-level outdoor community classes from 10 a.m. to noon, on Saturday, May 3, at the Constitution Gardens by the Vietnam Memorial, (Metro stop Foggy Bottom).

Yoga on the Mall will kick off with a 20-minute children’s class, led by Budding Yogis, and a class for beginners, led by Arlet Kosein of Extend Yoga and Annie Moyer of Sun & Moon Yoga Studio. At 10:30 a.m., D.C., area teachers will lead yoga demonstrations. They will be followed by a one-hour all levels class with Shiva Rea, a leading teacher of transformational Prana Flow Yoga and Yoga Trance Dance. Rea is known for bringing the roots of yoga alive for modern practitioners in creative, dynamic and life-transforming ways and for offering the synthesis form of vinyasa flow out in the world.
