Align Your Chakras While Getting a Great Workout at Embrace Yoga

You can get a pretty good sense of what kind of place Embrace Yoga is just by considering its name: this DC studio is especially committed to the spiritual and meditative aspects of yoga, as they form the foundation for the more physical practice. Classes are held seven days a week, and often start as early as 6:15 a.m. for all the early birds who want to greet the day at dawn. Night owls will appreciate the fact that classes also run as late as 9 p.m. for students who use yoga to wind down and relax at the end of a long day.

You can join a regular weekly class at Embrace Yoga, or you can sign up for one of the studio's special events, like the "Awaken Your Sacred Goddess" weekend at Kripalu for New Year's Eve, or treat yourself to a once-in-a-lifetime trip to India in January 2017, where you'll soak up the sun on the beach while practicing yoga with the rest of your fellow travelers.
