Our Story

In 2003 when Down Dog Yoga established its flagship studio in a former garage in Georgetown, there was no telling how things would go. Gradually, what started as a simple dream along the C&O canal transformed into the heart of a vibrant yoga community attracting students from all walks of life, from all over the Washington Area.

Today, Down Dog Yoga has grown to include four locations throughout the DC region, and is one of the best-known and most well-respected studios in the country. Our growth has been driven by a warm and welcoming community fueled by transformative classes and years of sweat and unwaivering commitment to our students growth.


Dig deep, get sweaty and create the strongest version of yourself inside and out.



At Down Dog Yoga, we teach Baptiste Power Yoga which is  a dynamic practice with the transformative blend of sweat, strength, and spirituality. It will push you to a healthy edge, and leave you feeling more powerful and alive.

Our practice was created to do more than strengthen your body. Beyond physical strength, you will gain emotional vitality and mental clarity. When you’re unsure if you’ll make it through, you’ll find the drive to keep going with the support of us and those around you.

At Down Dog Yoga, our commitment is to help uplift, empower and inspire everyone who walks through our doors to discover who they are and what matters most to them through the practice of Hot Power Yoga..
