I have a mixed review for this studio. I have been practicing for a number of years at various studios and the classes at Dancing Mind are very formulaic but consistently challenging. Instructors vary somewhat in intensity, pace and order, but generally you are doing the same thing every class. This is not the studio for a drop in, since their drop in fees are excessive. The packages are more reasonable, but if you take a hiatus, the savings may not be worth it. The instructors are friendly and helpful and often there are assistants that help you to adjust the poses for your needs. However, the owner, Paula, is abrasive and seems to feel that students are just not doing their best. On one occasion, a new student quietly left in the middle of class. She was stopped by Paula just outside of class. A few minutes later, Paula ushered her back into the room while we were all posed in "Warrior 2" facing the door. Paula loudly asked the class how many others felt like throwing up. At that point, she insisted that the girl continue the class and take a "Child's Pose" if she should feel sick again. Shouldn't it be up to the yogi to decide how much or little effort to expend? The poor girl was clearly horrified and embarrassed. In another recent class that Paula was not teaching, she came into the class at the end and told everyone to raise their hands since some people had not signed up in advance. She read each name and after the name was called, the individual was permitted to leave. Fortunately I had signed up so I avoided the humiliation and reprimand but many of us were dismayed by her approach. I certainly understand the need to run a business and not be cheated out of revenue, but there should be a better way. The bottom line is, the classes are predictable and challenging, but do your best to avoid Paula.

This studio is home away from home! Really inspirational staff and such a welcoming vibe across all the classes offered. I get especially excited about the workshops they offer. With yoga, crossfit, and cycle offered, it truly is a full mind-body experience

I am exceedingly frustrated and disappointed with this studio. Overall I enjoyed the classes, but the customer service was extremely lacking in information. I walked in on a weekday at lunch time hoping to take a yoga class, and was told that I could do a free week and 30 days for 30 dollars. It was not explained to me that it was an either or scenario. I did almost the full free week and then since I really like it decided to try the 30 days for 30 dollars which would give me plenty of time to try a lot of different classes. No one explained to me upon registering that the $30 would be taken from my first yoga class taken during that free week. I walked in a week later looking forward to start my 30 days only to be told that it had already started during my free week. No apologies were made. I promptly asked for a refund and walked out. I don't care how good the classes may be; if the sales reps can't even explain how a promotion works this is not the studio for me.

No other yoga studio is as hands-on as DMY. Love it!

I really love this place. The staff is great, especially the manager Erik. He's very down to earth and I wish more businesses had someone like him up front. It's a great workout, not as hot as Bikram, and I leave feeling amazing.

Having not practiced yoga except for doing occasional prenatal yoga during my two pregnancies, I began at Dancing Mind when my youngest was 3-Almost a year ago. I was welcomed with open arms and have always felt encouraged. I find that there is a great variety of instructors and I always find one that fits my "mood" for that day. The power sculpt classes allow me to help maintain my strength using weights and integrating cardio with yoga all in only 45minutes. I believe it is a great class to take in between All Levels classes and Power Hours. The staff and instructors are extremely positive, as well as helpful. I still consider myself a novice, but am so grateful that I have joined this place. I have not used the showers, but the new facilities are look great. I encourage anyone to just try it for a week!

I don't live in the D.C. Area but was excited to find a hot vinyasa flow class near my hotel! Ive been practicing for 3 years at a hot studio and love it! The class i took is not for babies. It's very fast and the instructor seemed to be more of a drill sergeant than a yogi. I enjoyed it but I enjoy focusing on my alignment and my breathes. This class was so fast it was difficult to do both. On a high note...I know my butt cheeks will be burning tomorrow. Oh yeah... No music.... They played a little at the end. Oh and no mirrors in the studio... And the receptionist was unfriendly. So just okay.

Good Studio for Power Hot Yoga. I started coming to this studio last summer, when I took advantage of their $50 Introductory 30-day offer. Since then I've been to classes off and on. The studio itself is very nice: clean, attractive, has windows for natural lighting, and friendly staff. The lobby area has two change rooms and can get kind of crowded in between classes. There are bathrooms down the hall but no showers, which I don't find to be a big deal. I've practiced many different types of yoga in the past (Iyengar, Bikram and Ashtanga) and I find their Baptiste Power yoga has pros and cons, depending on what you're looking for. The instructors are friendly, very motivational and really encourage you to push your physical limits. They don't demonstrate postures but instead walk around the room, calling out the next move. Each class also has an assistant, who comes around and adjusts your body while in a posture. This is one of the things I personally don't like about their classes. I don't find the assistant does a very good job at meaningful posture adjustments because they're jumping from student to student very quickly. Plus I find it slightly uncomfortable for a stranger to come up close behind me in a standing forward bend and run their hands down my back to release the tension in my shoulders (as one example). Since it is a power yoga practice, the series of postures goes by very quickly and starts off with a version of the sun salutations. I think of the practice as a very Westernized version of yoga, more focused on getting a good workout than any sort of spiritual or meditative effect. There's not much emphasis on breathing except when you're in a resting downward dog. And, they play music in the studio and encourage you to talk to other students around you. Which really is great for building community and feeling friendly, but doesn't evoke that 'studio as a sacred space' vibe that some other studios do. All in all, a very good studio that I would recommend.
