Georgetown Yoga is the sister studio of The Yoga Shala and Dupont Circle Yoga, dedicated to offering teacher-driven, classical yoga styles.

Our mission is straightforward: offer teacher-driven, old-school yoga classes from classical Hatha roots: Iyengar, Ashtanga, Vinyasa (Flow), in a laid-back setting. We take yoga seriously but try to keep things laid-back and light; we hope to create a space where students can approach yoga on their own terms - not as part of some weird clique or cult.

The story of our studio is pretty short: take one longtime local restaurant owner and yoga student, Elias Hengst, and one Montana native, yoga teacher, certified massage therapist, and mental health counselor, Maryl Baldridge.

Add shared passion for yoga, community, teaching, family, friends, (mostly) healthy living, and a love of the outdoors - and you have The Yoga Shala.

We try to make our studio both accessible and affordable. If you're tight on funds, work in schools or non-profits, are a student, or just need a discount, drop us a line....!

Located in the heart of Georgetown...

We're located in Georgetown at 2805 M St NW

Our airy, light-filled studio is located in Georgetown in a lovingly restored building near Dupont, the West End, and Foggy Bottom.

Don't worry about the little things - there's plenty of room to change and we offer complimentary use of premium Manduka yoga mats.
