Founded in 2003, Down Dog Yoga opened its flagship studio in a former garage on the edge of the Potomac Canal in Georgetown.

Few yoga studios existed in the city at the time, and there was no telling how things would go. But as Helen Keller once said: “Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all.” So we set off on our path with an excited determination, and opened our doors.

Soon, students from all over the Washington area began to join us. Students became friends and fellow yogis. Gradually, a nondescript red brick building was transformed into the heart of a vibrant yoga community.

Today, Down Dog Yoga is one of the best-known and most well-respected studios in the country. Locals and visitors from every walk of life flock to our studios to experience our popular classes and inspiring community.

Whether you’re a beginning yoga student, or just new to our studio, one thing we are sure of is that you will have an experience like no other before.

Show up just as you are, be willing to challenge yourself, and discover a physical practice that will sculpt, tone, and reshape your body – and a yoga practice that will transform your life.
