Operation Peace Park

Get ready to pull out your mat and hit the grass. Small, no-frills outdoor classes dedicated to making you and DC more peaceful and connected. Safely distanced from arrival through savasana, a portion of proceeds from every class will be donated to Black Lives Matter. Read on for locations and more info.

 

Park Class Information

Which parks:

We’ve chosen seven quiet parks near each of our seven studio locations, so it’s like going to your favorite Yoga District studio-just outside! Park names and addresses are noted below and in the title of each outdoor class on our class schedule and you can filter the class schedule to view one or all of our park locations using the drop down menu. Once you’re at the park for class, just look for a shady spot and others with mats. Teachers will be on site approximately 15 minutes before class time with a small sign to help you find your way.

  • Yoga @ 14th St: Meridian Hill/Malcolm X Park, 16th & W St NW (upper level, near the Joan of Arc statue )
  • Yoga @ Dupont: Stead Park, 1625 P St NW (on the astroturf between the playground and basketball court)
  • Yoga @ H St: Stanton Park, 226 4th St NE
  • Yoga @ Bloomingdale: Crispus Attucks, 23 U St NW
  • Yoga @ Glover Park: Guy Mason Recreation Center, 3600 Calvert St NW (near the baseball field)
  • Yoga @ Petworth: Raymond Recreation Center, 3725 10th St NW (southwest corner)

Things to bring:

Please bring your own mat or towel to practice on, water, hand sanitizer, hat, sunglasses, bug repellant, towel, sunscreen. If you normally use any yoga props for your practice (bolsters, blocks, straps, blankets) please bring those as well. You can also bring your own personal shade structure if you need to avoid the sun in case we can’t find a shady spot.

Masks & distance:

Please wear masks and distance yourself at least six feet from others at all times. If you choose to not wear a mask during the class pursuant to Mayor Bowser’s exception for vigorous exercise, please distance yourself at least ten feet from others.

Reserve in advance:

Reserve your spot in class ahead of time on our website. If you’re unable to do so, a teacher or intern at the park will guide you through the process on your personal phone if there is still space available in the class (maximum of nine students per class).

Leave no trace:

After class please collect all of your personal belongings and take your trash with you. We recommend sanitizing your hands and feet before and after the class.

Weather check:

When the weather gets wild all outdoor class will be cancelled so you can sign up for an online class with us instead. If you have concerns about the weather just check your texts/emails for cancellation notices at least a couple hours before class.
