LOS ANGELES, June 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- YogaWorks, the rapidly growing leader in yoga practice and fitness, is proud to announce the grand opening of its first studio in Washington D.C. YogaWorks 14th Street is located at the base of the View 14 luxury apartment building and is an urban oasis in the U Street Corridor, one of the most popular and diverse neighborhoods in D.C. The newest yoga studio in D.C. opened on May 23rd, 2016 with a pre-opening schedule of classes to Founding Members and guests, and officially opened on June 1st with a full schedule featuring a great mix of classes taught by an amazing line-up of teachers.
"We're thrilled to be opening our 52nd YogaWorks studio in this active, thriving and growing yoga community," said Rosanna McCollough, President, YogaWorks. "We are looking forward to bringing our eclectic mix of yoga classes and our world-renowned teaching program to D.C. to help students of all levels reach their goals and have an opportunity to feel good."
YogaWorks believes "yoga is for everybody" and offers a wide variety of classes and levels to meet the diverse needs of students of all ages and all fitness abilities. Popular classes like Vinyasa flow are typically hot and sweaty and can deliver an intense cardio workout. Other classes like a Slow Flow, Restorative Yoga or Gentle class are designed to provide a slower but equally strong workout for students looking for a solid stretch to complement an active fitness program or to aid in recovery. The wide variety of diverse classes is the hallmark of YogaWorks and helps provide the variety needed to deliver physical and mental well-being. All classes are taught in a 2,000 square feet space that is both beautiful and inspiring and is one of the largest yoga rooms in all of Washington D.C. Relaxing locker rooms provide a convenient place to change before or after class and the retail boutique is the perfect place to pick up the latest yoga apparel, accessories, natural beauty products, organic snacks and superfood essentials.
YogaWorks will also make available its world-renowned teacher training program that has graduated over 10,000 students in the last 25 years, including many of the top yoga instructors in the world today. The YogaWorks teacher training program provides the most solid understanding of yoga to students who simply want to develop their yoga practice further or for those who want to continue on to teach yoga. In fact, YogaWorks signature classes can only be taught by teachers with over 500 hours of training which is the highest amount of training required by any studio and the reason why YogaWorks is known for the highest quality instruction in the country. YogaWorks also offers an innovative program called YogaWorks@Work where companies can increase employee morale and productivity while reducing stress levels by offering high quality yoga classes taught by YogaWorks teachers at individual company locations.
YogaWorks 14th Street is located just north of Logan Circle at the corner of 14th and Florida in the U Street Corridor. The newest yoga studio in D.C. is a short walk away from award winning restaurants and retail shops and is easily accessed via public transportation.
