Sunday marks the start of DC Yoga Week, now in its sixth year. The event kicks off with a free yoga session near the Washington Monument this Sunday, May 15, from 1:30 to 4:30 and ends with a yoga flash mob at John Marshall Park on Saturday, May 21, from 10 to 11 AM.
Sunday’s kickoff event at the Washington Monument features sessions for all age levels. From 1:30 to 2:30, there’s a special yoga-and-dance session for kids, featuring drummers from the Young Women’s Drumming Empowerment Project. From 2:30 to 3:15, it’s an all-levels class, and from 3:15 to 3:30, an acroyoga demonstration, a two-person practice that marries gymnastics moves with yoga. Another all-levels class runs from 3:30 to 4:30, accompanied by live drums.
