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.

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.

I have never been to this studio as I am new to town/state and find myself looking for a new studio as well. After reading your gripes about the class you took, your obviously clueless to the "hot yoga" practice. Sounds like you better do your homework before signing up for another class at ANY studio- so you dont find yourself in this situation again. I personally LOVE hot yoga, and as you found out there are some "rules" about class. You wouldnt go skiing and blame your ski instructor because you wore too many clothes and no goggles now would you? Do your homework next time and stop pointing fingers! =)

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 started going to DMY almost 2 weeks ago after I had lost my job. I had been doing Baron Baptiste's videos off and on for 10 years, but had never taken a class. Infact, the only yoga classes I'd taken were Bikram and I felt like, with the recent life change, it was time for something different. Dancing Mind Yoga is everything a yoga studio should be. The teachers and staff are genuinely caring and will push you to your physical limits. There are no cliques and there is no competition between students -- the teachers make sure that we all get to know one another. The studio is very attractive and, best of all, clean. Any one who comes to this studio will be glad they did.

I have been going to this studio for 6 weeks now and absolutely adore the experience. The instructors are genuinely caring about the quality of your practice and the energy of the class. While I understand that some people find the heat overwhelming their first time, it is better to go into the child's pose and rest, rather than disrupt the concentration and progress of the rest of class by leaving the room. I have grown so much, physically, mentally and emotionally through the concentration and meditation required for this intense kind of yoga experience. I particularly love that they offer memberships to the studio, so that you can go as often as you want. I am so thankful for this wonderful studio and the amazing people who work there.
