Life in the nation’s capitol can be stressful. But who wants to pay an arm and a leg to find peace of mind? CITC is here to help you find great yoga classes at a great price.

There are a few things to remember when you’re getting started. Most studios will offer specials for new students to the studio. Don’t be afraid to try them all to find a studio and class that you just loooooooove. Many studios also have special discounted rates for students as well, so don’t forget your student ID card. Many studios will even offer some sort of work exchange or barter for classes. It never hurts to ask.

If you’re on a super tight budget, many studios offer free or donation based yoga and meditation classes. Since these classes are cheaper, they usually fill up FAST, so try to get there early. Take a look our list below of all the discounted and free classes in the area.

Don’t forget that most places charge for things like mat rentals, bottled water, and towels. You can save yourself a couple bucks each trip if you just bring all this stuff yourself. Even if you think you won’t use them, it’s always a good idea to have towels and water on hand. Keep this in mind and you’re ready to get peace of mind at a great price. Namaste!
