New Yoga Studio Coming to Petworth

“Dear PoPville,

Two Petworth residents are joining forces to open a new yoga studio on Georgia Avenue, directly across the street from Fusion (4815 Georgia Ave, NW). The studio will be called Golden Heart Yoga DC. Its sister studio, Golden Heart Yoga Annapolis, has been voted “best yoga studio” in Annapolis for the last several years.

Golden Heart Yoga DC will be a community-oriented space, offering a variety of classes in traditional yoga styles, as well as pre-natal, mom/dad and baby classes, gentle yoga for seniors and others with less flexibility, and Friday evening donation classes to raise money for local charities and non-profits.

We’re looking forward to opening our doors soon after Thanksgiving, if all goes well. Stay tuned!”

Awesome news! Ever since Yoga House Studio closed above what is now Looking Glass Lounge, Petworthians have been without a proper yoga studio. Great to have it back. Pretty cool little block too – don’t forget there is already a dance studio (which will be right next door to the yoga studio.)

    Isn’t that the old funeral home? Better for the living than the dead I guess!

    I think this is the new project by Julie, who teaches yoga at the Columbia Heights Washington Sports Club.

    I think this is a project by my neighbor! She runs a yoga studio in Annapolis, and lives in Petworth. Can’t be a coincidence? I will ask her when I see her next. Super cool to see middle/upper Georgia making moves like this!
