Yoga is one of the best ways you can take time for yourself. Whether you’re preparing to welcome a little one into your world or are trying to keep up with the kiddos you already have, yoga gives you a chance to pause, breathe, and connect with your body. Here are some of the best Alexandria yoga studios for you to explore your practice!
This teacher-led studio offers prenatal classes for expectant mamas, plenty of beginner classes, and gentle stretching sessions for anyone looking to clear their mind. Anyone searching for a more intensive course will appreciate their Power and Flow yoga sessions that build stamina, strength, and flexibility.
Rising Sol Yoga School is a hot yoga studio that has harnessed the warmth of the sun. Their heated studios release tension and resistance, helping you sweat out your stress and tension. Hot yoga is not recommended for pregnant women, so if you’re expecting, put this on your postpartum to-do list!
Radiance Yoga offers over 50 classes per week, so you’re bound to find one that fits your needs and schedule. While they don’t offer prenatal classes exclusively, they do have slower-paced classes that are still suitable for pregnant moms. Need a little rest? Try this Alexandria yoga studio’s Gong Yoga Nidra class to practice restorative relaxation.
Good Vibes Yoga has created a studio that is a “cozy, light-hearted, community-based space” where you can practice. Pregnant mamas can enjoy their Moon Flow, Yoga Nidra, Yogastrology, and Joint Freeing Series. If you’re not pregnant, check out one of their more intensive classes, or treat yourself to some extra relaxation with one of their more restorative courses.
Mind the Mat Pilates & Yoga offers 6-week prenatal programs specifically designed for pregnant bodies rather than simply modified to accommodate them. Moms will love their wide variety of yoga classes (hot and unheated), barre classes, and Pilates for a good workout and a little “me-time!”
Power Nectar Yoga is a hot yoga studio offering classes at hot and warm temperatures. More intense yogis will love their hot-flow yoga classes, and those who prefer to avoid intense heat will appreciate their warm, slow-flow yoga. This is another Alexandria yoga studio that is probably the best post-baby.
YogaSix has, you guessed it, six different classes that range from “hot and powerful to slow and mindful.” Whether you want to sculpt your muscles or stretch everything out, one of their six classes will be the right fit for your practice – even if you’re pregnant!
Yoga in Del Ray offers a variety of classes to suit your yoga needs. While they don’t have specific prenatal courses, they offer classes still suitable for pregnant women. Try this Alexandria yoga studio’s mellow flow by candlelight or their mindfulness meditation class for a dose of relaxation.
Zen Yoga and Wellness wants to make practicing yoga a joyful and approachable experience. Their class schedule is a little sparse, but this Alexandria yoga studio is great for anyone looking for a customized private lesson.
Yoga instructor Jess Purtell loves offering classes that cultivate self-discovery. She offers in-person Pilates and yoga classes, as well as some virtual options you can take part in from the comfort of your own home.
These amazing Alexandria yoga studios are great for moms, moms-to-be, and anyone looking for a little guided practice. Most of them offer some introductory special, so take advantage of their lower prices as you find your new yoga home!
