Your Instagram followers are going to love this: you, yoga, and killer views overlooking the Potomac from the rooftop of the Watergate Hotel. A mindful yoga series hosted by Recharj—a meditation studio in downtown DC—in partnership with In Good Company Wellness is taking over the hotel’s rooftop for a series of yoga hour-long yoga classes.

The sessions are being held on Wednesdays August 23 and 30 and on Sunday, August 27. The Wednesday classes, which cost $35, follow the 60-minute yoga class with a complimentary juice bar, while the $55 Sunday class finishes with an inclusive continental brunch on the roof, including baked goods, fruit and yogurt, charcuterie and cheeses, coffee, tea, juice, and bottomless mimosas. The yoga sessions, taught by local yoga instructors Lakshmi Kanter and Ginny Loving, will incorporate mindfulness techniques—such as breathing and guided visualization—into the vinyasa yoga.

You’ll want to pack your own yoga mat for the classes, but there are locker rooms available on site where you can change before heading into work following a Wednesday morning session. The Wednesday morning classes are scheduled for 7 AM, while the Sunday morning class is slated for 10 AM. These classes are not accepting drop-ins, so to register, head to Eventbrite to book your spot in August 23, 27, or 30 class.
