Dupont Yoga coming to former Cafe Japone space in Dupont

2032 P Street, NW

More big yoga news this week. Back in Oct. 2013 we learned that Cafe Japone had closed at 2032 P Street, NW. Next up – Unity Woods Dupont Yoga (these signs were taped to the doors):


Update: thanks to MPinDC for clarifying, “it is a new yoga studio (Dupont Yoga) that will be offering space to a Unity Woods teacher on Saturday mornings.”

Unity Woods’ website says:

“Yoga at Unity Woods is not trendy, but timeless. You may have tried yoga in gyms or in videos. When you are ready for the best in authentic yoga instruction, come try the classes at our three Washington-area locations.

Unity Woods is one of the best known and most widely respected yoga centers in the country. We offer classes for students at all levels in asana (posture) and pranayama (breathing), special courses for targeted needs and interests, workshops with some of the world’s finest teachers, and programs covering various aspects of the science and art of yoga.

At Unity Woods, our purpose is to offer uncompromising, expert yoga instruction to as broad an audience as possible. Our teaching staff is the area’s most experienced, comprised of highly trained, certified instructors who help guide you to improved health, serenity and expanded awareness.

All our classes are based on the teachings of B.K.S. Iyengar. Named by Time magazine as “one of the 100 most influential people in the world.” Mr. Iyengar is widely regarded as the 20th century’s foremost yoga teacher. His approach develops self-awareness through precision in movement and attention to the subtleties of body, breath, mind, and spirit.”

  • YES! So excited. I was wondering where in DC I could take a yoga class!

  • That’d be great if they just repainted the Sumo wrestler doing downward dog.

  • Will Deep Dish provide the sound track?

  • I wish this was the new DC location for Unity Woods – but it is a new yoga studio (Dupont Yoga) that will be offering space to a Unity Woods teacher on Saturday mornings.
    There are plenty of yoga studios in DC, but no Iyengar studios.

  • This is a very expensive piece of real estate for yoga. Let’s hope that this doesn’t go the same way as Stroga and become a late-night venue.
