During the week there are two options for free (or cheap) classes at the various Down Dog Yoga locations. First, announce yourself as a new student (sorry tourists, local ID required) and experience seven free days of unlimited yoga. Then, while you’re deciding which classes are your favorite, do your wallet a favor and sneak out of work a little early for the 4:30pm classes on Friday ($5) that are used to help train DDY’s new teachers.
Circle Yoga offers weekly Community Yoga (for a $5 suggested donation) and pushes you to work on your mental health via their monthly Friday ‘Yoga off the Mat’ class with offerings such as philosophy and meditation. Ohmmm. And if you need more time to center yourself on the idea of mindfulness, this studio offers free donation-based classes around the art of meditation three times a week (Mon/Wed/Fri).
When the weekend hits (and it will hit hard) at Capitol Hill Yoga there’s a free Community Yoga class at this locally owned and operated studio at 6pm each week that’s offered on a first-come, first-served basis for 25 people. Newbies can also check out CorePower Yoga to try their first week free.
