Sunday Serenity Yoga

Posted on: June 25th, 2017 by Marketing Development No Comments

Local yoga instructors Alia Peera and Amy Mitchell host our 3rd annual summer yoga series in the East Park at Dumbarton House. The East Park provides a serene, tree covered outdoor space, for this 60 minute all-levels vinyasa flow class that should be fun and challenging for both experienced yogis and yoga skeptics alike! Attendees should bring their own mat and must complete a waiver to participate.

A $5 cash donation per person is suggested for the class. Please give donations directly to the instructor. Reservations are not required but are encouraged. Donations to Dumbarton House for providing space are welcomed, donate online or in the museum after the class.

Class will be canceled if rain is forecasted at or after 8:00 am the morning of class. Rain cancellations can be confirmed on the instructors and Dumbarton House’s Twitter @Path2Be @ProYogaUSA @DumbartonHouse

About our instructors

Alia Peera’s desire to share yoga with others grew out of her own journey for empowerment and self-care. Her love of yoga deepened after she returned to D.C. from a stressful job as special education teacher in one of the most under-resourced schools in the South Louisiana. Yoga helped Alia find the balance both on and off the mat to restore and give more her students, family and friends. Passionate about helping others cultivate their inner balance through yoga and mindfulness, Alia has dedicated her time to teaching yoga and meditation to kids and adults in the DC area. She is certified in Vinyasa Flow/Power Yoga, and has also earned certificates in Yoga Philosophy for Kids Grades K-12. Her style is energetic, friendly, and focused on mindfulness and breath. Alia is energized by empowering others to reach their full potential. In her classes, you can expect to feel cared for yet challenged. @Path2Be www.aliapeera.com

Amy is 20-year veteran government professional, having worked on Capitol Hill, and for a variety of non-profits and multi-media companies as a strategic communicator, leading several national campaigns to support the U.S. military and veterans.

Amy started ProYOGA to make yoga more accessible by bringing it to where people spend the majority of their time: work. You can follow her on twitter and instagram @proyogausa.
