From a press release:

“Yoga Heights, a yoga studio at 3506 Georgia Ave. NW., announced today that they are opening their second location this fall in the Takoma Central Apartment building at 235 Carroll Ave. NW, Washington, D.C. Yoga Heights is a community oriented studio that offers classes for every body, at every level and every budget.

“The love and support of the Yoga Heights community has been overwhelming for the past three years,” said Jess Pierno, owner. “Our students’ enthusiasm for the studio, our teachers, events and community, has made Yoga Heights an incredibly special yoga studio. It was never in the plans to open additional locations, but due to repeated requests to offer more classes, community events and YHDC good vibes, we were inspired to expand our studio!”

Yoga Heights will continue to offer all levels vinyasa and power yoga, beginners classes, Rocket yoga, restorative and Yin yoga, prenatal yoga, bootcamps, Pilates, yoga teacher training and community events at both locations.

Yoga Heights Takoma is just steps from the Takoma metro station on the red line and is on bus lines 52, 53, 54, 62, 63, F1, F2 and K2.

To ensure that their classes work with all budgets, Yoga Heights offers half price “happy hour” classes five days per week, work-study in trade for classes, as well as “Karma Passes” which allows students to pay just $8 per class up to four times per month.Through these programs, Yoga Heights has helped more than 4,000 people afford yoga classes in the three years they have been open.

“We look forward to continuing to be an affordable and community oriented yoga studio for people who are brand new to yoga, as well as regularly practicing yogis,” Pierno continued.
More information on class offerings, pricing and events is available at www.YogaHeightsDC.com.

Studio owners Jess Pierno and Amy Rizzotto, and their talented team of instructors remain steadfastly committed to working with Yoga Heights’ students to ensure that health and wellness are accessible to all.”

    Nice! Congrats to the them. I used to go to the GA Ave studio all the time until I moved. I bet they’ll do well with this new location.

    Congrats to them. I’m a big fan and regular attendee of their Georgia Ave location. I also really enjoy their Sunday morning donation class at Wangari Garden.

    I wonder what impact this will have on Willow Street Yoga, which is just down the block. I’ve had some good teachers at Willow Street but I hate how they make you pay for an entire semester of yoga instead of paying per class.

      I looked into Willow Street yoga when I was about to move to SS, but yeah, I hate the pricing systems, and they don’t have anywhere near the number and varieties of classes that Yoga Heights does, so I’ve stuck with them, trying to go after work (although I haven’t done well on that this month) and to workshops, etc. This new location would be great for weekend classes!

    • Willow Street is too crowded! They allow too many students to register for each class, and it feels cramped and not very restorative. Willow Street does allow for drop-ins for their classes (but their website doesn’t seem to advertise that). Excited for more yoga options in the area!

    I was never a “yoga person” until I started classes at YH – I love everything about this studio and I am so excited for them!

    So happy for Amy and Jess! They built such a great community in Parkview, and Takoma could use a drop-in yoga studio. I love their classes and their vibe!

    Yay!!! They are by far my favorite yoga studio in DC! Excited to see them expanding. They really do offer yoga for everybody, and managed to create an environment that you can be challenged and grow in, don’t feel intimidated either. Not aneasy balance to stike in yoga type-a personality land (aka DC)
