2013 we are so glad you are here! Class is in session at Capitol Hill Yoga, and we hope your resolve includes a little bit of stretching, strengthening, studying, and sweetening with us. January always brings much excitement to the studio. It's our favorite month as our 'regulars' warmly greet new and returning students.
And we notice the resolve of a New Year often invites our students to try out a new teacher, type of class, or workshop offering. Please welcome our newest teacher Michael Levin by trying out his Friday evening Open Yoga class. Check out this class key to decide which additional class(es) you should branch out to.
If you are new to yoga or to classes at Capitol Hill Yoga, we suggest starting with Yoga Essentials where you will focus on basic poses and key actions with a strong focus on alignment. This class can be a great judge of what you want from your yoga class. If you want to ease in, slow down and meditate more, slide to classes on the left of the chart. If you want to deepen your physical practice (and sweat more), slide to the right. And check out the full class descriptions here.
Still needing a little more resolve to get back to your mat? Check out Karl's story as our student of the month and the power of resolve that comes through in our pose of the month, Warrior 1.
See you on the mat,
Virabhadrasana I (warrior 1) is a fitting pose for January as many of us come back to the mat or to the mat for the first time, making yoga a part of our New Year's resolution or intention. Just as a resolution requires strength and discipline, so too is there a necessity for flexibility and awareness of whether our actions are taking us closer to or further away from our ultimate goal. Opportunities to cultivate both strength and flexibility abound in Virabhadrasana I. Read More

"The most important lesson I have learned on the mat has been confirmed by the dogs that I walk - Being present. My best friends are always so eager to go out for a walk, and I have recently realized that what they are really excited about is the opportunity to experience something new; a new scent, a new friend, or any new experience on the same old route. Here's hoping that we are all open to new opportunities, on and off the mat, in 2013! " Read More
