1. Heart BEATS at 405 Yoga
Located in Washington, DC, Heart BEATS is 405 Yoga's mindful, body positive, move-how-you-feel flow choreographed to some of the very best jams (think everything from hip-hop and your favorite R&B throwbacks to today's electro and pop hits). This flow is meant for letting go and connecting deep.
With repetitive flows, low lighting, and lots of space for self-guided movement, they encourage students to forget about how they look in a pose and focus on how they feel, cultivating self love and acceptance with every breath. Dancing is, of course, encouraged!
The lighting is super low so all you can see is your 3x7 mat, and all you can hear are the beats and rhythm of your own breath.
