August 2015 Newsletter

There is something special about August in Washington, D.C.  We notice folks walking just a little bit slower to get into the office, enjoying a few extra minutes to chat with neighbors at the coffee shop, and putting the laptop away a little earlier at the end of the day.  We hope you take this month to escape from our busy culture by joining us in the studio for a namastay-cation.

  • Greet the morning sun with your yoga community.  We have 6am yogahour classes Monday-Friday.
  • Play hookie and beat the mid-day heat.  CHY offers 10 weekday classes between 9am-5pm.
  • Unwind with yoga each evening where you'll find our biggest variety of class types.

 Pose of the Month - Couch Pose

This month we work with couch pose. In sanskrit couch pose is Paryankasana. Grab two blocks and a yoga strap or a couple of wash clothes, view the video, and work one stage at a time. Stacey hopes that with some practice you will grow to love this pose as much as she does.
