Our Mission

Uprising Yoga Center was created for the main purpose of building a strong community of individuals, and empowering them to be their most incontrovertible, unapologetic, authentic selves.

 The greatest things in life come from a space of vulnerability, and our mission is to create a safe, welcoming, and all-inclusive space for that. It’s created with the intention of providing a sacred space to reset, heal, grow and connect.

Our studio is built on the notion that yoga is for everyone and every body, and through mindful movement and meditation you will clear your mind, feel grounded, and connect with yourself and others on all levels(physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually).

In the Bhagavad Gita it says, “yoga is the journey of the self, through the self, to the self.” Our breath focused yoga classes are carefully curated to great music. Come prepared to breathe, move, and feel more. It is your time on your mat to move your body, settle your mind, and dig a little deeper into your heart.

Giving back to our community is an integral part of our business and yoga community. We offer donation based classes that will benefit various local charities in Washington, D.C.. as well as partner with local non-profits who share our vision of partnership and perpetual healing and growth.

 As part of our vision to build a community, we want our space to not only serve as a center for movement and meditation, but also a space for creatives and artists of all sorts to present their work and talent. We will proudly showcase visual arts from local artists and make our space available for open mic nights for local poets, authors, and musicians.
