Join one of YogaNoMa's instructors on an Icelandic yoga retreat!
Iceland will take your breath away: the amazing landscapes, the mountains, the raw beauty of nature, the welcoming uniqueness of the people and their fantastic culture. Rob's first visit changed my perspective on life and made me realize the power of connection. Connection to nature, to the past, to the future and to each other.

Excited to be a part of this yummy experience!
We have a new Friday schedule! Spend the evening with Isaac first for Yang to Yin followed by Next Level Yin Yoga.
Yin yoga is a slow-paced meditative yoga practice that targets the fascia and connective tissues of the body by holding floor-based postures long periods of time, typically 3 to 10 minutes.
In this class, Isaac focuses on taking your yoga practice to the next level through a focus on stillness and mindfulness of your unique body. When we are able to stay present and in the moment, we open ourselves to a deeper relationship with ourselves and a more powerful experience on the mat, with the goal being to apply the same skills we practice in life off the mat as well.
No prior experience in yin yoga is required. The class is not designed to be physically challenging, so in that sense it is open and accessible to all levels of fitness and yoga experience. However, the class challenges and strengthens the student’s inner practice through the long-held stillness. Many consider yin yoga to be a gateway to a deeper meditation practice.
As a part of the meditative and mindfulness practice, between poses students will be offered a resting pose, called the “rebound” by yin yoga founder Paul Grilley. The rebound allows students to rest, turn their attention inward, and experience the effects of the previous pose. Over time students can develop a deeper understanding of their body and mind, as well as how they are the impacted by their yoga practice.
The class is designed to allow students to let go of their week and simply be, and this class is a great way to complement and continue the prior class on the schedule, yang-to-yin flow.
On June 23 from 9 a.m. - 12 p.m. on the National Mall Lawn, join Strike a Pose DC for motivational speakers, sound healing, yoga flow, and more!
Immersive, hands-on experience. We’ll explore the principles of excellent assists and practice assisting the major areas of the body, exploring their transference between postures. Be prepared to practice, experiment, and get feedback from the community as you gain knowledge and confident in purposeful touch during asana.
Learn tools to help you have a nurturing and peaceful postpartum with your new family.
Sunday, January 7, 1:15-3:45pm with Isaac Combs
Yin yoga is a slow-paced, meditative yoga practice that targets the fascia and connective tissues of the body by holding postures long periods of time, typically 3 to 10 minutes, with the muscles relaxed. In this yin workshop, Isaac will introduce the yin practice to Yoga NoMa.

Each month, join Alisha Lineswala for a yoga class geared to get flowing your creative movements of mind and body. Classes are held Sundays 1:15-2:30pm.
The holidays can be full of joy, but the “busyness” of the season can also contribute to a sense of stress and even lead to burnout. In this workshop, students will learn how to prevent and heal from burnout using the tools of yoga. We’ll set our intentions for the holiday season and will spend time working with mantras and affirmations, which can help us recenter during difficult moments. Students will be guided in a grounding practice of asana, breath work, and meditation to help return to sense of balance and calm. Participants will leave this workshop with a variety of simple techniques that can help to de-stress and re-center when the excitement and pressures of the holiday season become overwhelming.
Date: Saturday, December 9th, 2-4pm
