We have a lot of Workshops at Breathe. Check this page frequently for updates.
Star Wars Family Yoga
Sunday, September 30th 12:30-1:15pm
Practice Yoda you will. Oops! Practice YOGA you will!
We invite you and your child (ages 3 thru 10) to Feel the Force as you share yoga together in a fun, Star Wars-themed family practice. Here you and your child will breathe like Darth Vader and float out like Luke Skywalker in his landspeeder. Be your child’s Obi Wan, helping to steer yourself and your kiddo into a deeper state of focus and feel how calm you become. We encourage everyone (and that means you, Mom or Dad!) to join us dressed in your favorite Star Wars garb; keep it easy and low key, nothing too fancy to get in the way of feeling the way our bodies move. Leave the light sabers at home as we are working on training ourselves to use the Force for good.
Register using adult's name, and child is automatically included. If you intend to bring two or more children make sure to pick that registration option. Please contact us at email@example.com or at 703-829-0167 if you have any questions at all! We look forward to seeing you!
BroGA@Breathe - INTRO TO YOGA FOR GUYS
First Friday of each Month
Calling all dudes with zero or more yoga experience! BroGa@Breathe is back! Get ready for an informative and sensible yoga practice created just for dudes (and all their brethren) who also might not be able to touch their toes but are man enough to try. We are thrilled to bring back this popular practice on the FIRST Friday evening of each month* with Liz Olmo, who instructed the second BroGa@Breathe in July.
No yoga experience required. We have designed BroGa@Breathe to address many interests you and others have cited in our surveys to include:
Improving your golf game
Increase your reach and stride in running, tennis, soccer, kayaking, boxing, hiking, life!
Help you feel more balanced and more self-aware
Increase core strength
Did we mention that there’s no yoga experience required? Many of the men who have taken BroGa@Breathe have learned firsthand that yoga’s the real deal and it delivers immediate benefits: it’s grounding, it’s centering, it’s challenging, and it improves focus. So, let us help you get to your toes, or beyond. Let us show you yoga for relevance in your life where it really matters: off the mat.
BRING A GUEST who's never been to Broga@Breathe before and you and your guest will both be entered to win a FREE 30-day membership at Breathe! (If you're a Breathe member and your name is chosen you'll get a free month on us)
(*attendance and interest will dictate whether or not we add this more often)

Hearts in Motion - Yoga & Movement for Adults with Special Needs
Four week fall session:
Saturdays: Oct 20, Oct 27, Nov 3 and Nov 10 from 4 to 5pm
In this class connecting and moving together with motivating music stimulates mind/body awareness and offers a relaxing time to "have fun" in an accepting and nonjudgmental environment. Individuals who attend find self-expression, confidence and stress relief. This FREE introductory class is taught by Lynne Bauer, a Registered Somatic Movement Therapist with over 20 years experience working with the special needs population.
"Our son looks forward to yoga/dance every week! Having danced with Lynne since he was 5, (now 28) we knew it would help with his balance, agility, exercise, etc., but we were surprised to find that adding yoga had such an impact. On his own, he began using some of the yoga moves to calm himself when stress at work is an issue. It has given him an important self-management tool, a real bonus in addition to the joy he gets from class." (Parent Karen Hoppe)

Sound Bath Meditation
Next Date: Sunday, September 23rd, 7pm.
For more information and to register please click here.
According to sonic specialist Monte Hansen from the Crystal Ashram near Annapolis MD, “A sound bath is an immersion in sound frequency that cleans your soul.” Leave your rubber ducky at home. Bring your blankie instead, for this super relaxing immersion! According to cutting-edge doctors from Harvard, some of the deepest most profound healing in the body is accomplished with sound frequency.
Join us when Human Activation sound frequency specialist Robert Lee will be playing several of these rare Singing Bowls, some of which are over 200 years old. Hear the amazing story of how the practice was abandoned long ago and rediscovered in modern times. Come experience these gifts from the past in this NON-religious practice of our present. Be rejuvenated or just captivated by this unique musical performance.
Bring your pillows, blankies, and yoga mats and snuggle into the comfort of the tranquil sounds. Feel free to sit, lay, or even stand! Meditating with singing bowls has been known to reduce blood pressure more than guided meditation alone.
Alternate Thursdays At 8:15pm
Join this guided meditation to experience relaxation and rejuvenation while calming your mind and bringing peace to your soul. Meditation is well known to enhance health and wellbeing, release stress, improve sleep, and attract happiness, love and abundance. The session will include vivid visualizations with tranquil music and nature sounds.
Space is limited so select the session you want to attend on our Calendar page.
