Bringing Peace to the streets of DC

Strike a Pose seeks to promote Peace and Positivity in Washington D.C. through Yoga, Breath, and Movement.
We recognize the power of yoga to foster the union of mind, body, and soul in every individual regardless of age, body size, or physical capabilities. Yoga, meditation, breath and movement have the power to bring a Oneness to self, family, community, country, the world and all Creation, to transform Me Thinking to We Thinking, and make the world a Better place for all living creatures.
