Down Dog Power Yoga
Down Dog was ranked runner up for the District’s best yoga studio in 2015. Take a wide range of workshops they offer and learn why – discover your inner-balance with their handstand classes. Or enroll in their ‘Free Your Shoulders’ workshop to target upper back pain. The studio focuses on Baptise yoga, which is an accelerated form of yoga that is closer to an aerobic/cardio workout. Temperatures are kept between 90-95 degrees for all classes. Sweat out the stress.

Bethesda Salt Cave
Himalayan salt rocks, which have restorative properties and clear congestion, coat this dual spa and yoga studio. You’ll reach your inner chi immersed in a natural, calming environment. The salts cover the ground you lay on during guided meditation sessions; there’s also zero-gravity recliners. Afterwards, maybe take a dip in the studio’s sensory deprivation tank. This Bethesda studio definitively deserves the DMV’s most relaxing studio title.

As the affectionate name suggests, Lil Omm is for the whole family! They offer classes that parents can take with their children, from toddlers onward, and tiny little mats for the young tykes; but if you prefer to meditate without whining reminders of your responsibilities, they also offer an on-site child care service.

Corepower has locations scattered across the DMV area, but the Glover Park studio is consistently rated five stars. While other locales get crowded and stuffy downtown, Glover Park is roomy, and aspiring yogis will receive plenty of individual attention. Clients endlessly rave (in between their gasps for air) about the Sculpt Class – a combination of hot yoga, weight training, and a bit of cardio. This is the yoga studio to endure an intense workout and motivate yourself to get in shape.

We love you both so much – you inspire US! #Repost @cory.jivayogi with @repostapp ・・・ #realpeopleofashtanga It was about all I could do to get my sorry ass to the mat today, let alone push it up into the air. Fortunately I have the incredible support and inspiration of my beautiful friend and teacher @jrene01 When we aren't off working to deepen our respective practices and teaching abilities, knowing that we get to practice together often gets me over the hump and onto the mat. Thank you Jen! You're the real deal and we love you for it 😘👊🏼 #ashtanga #flowyogacenter
