I’m pleased to say that Lighthouse Yoga is now sponsoring Petworth News.
I’ve known studio owner Julie Eisenberg for quite some time, and have always appreciated her involvement in the Petworth community, supporting and being personally involved in local events. I also appreciate that she took a terrible-looking building on 9th and turned it into a nice location for a now popular yoga studio.
Julie has been practicing yoga for nearly 20 years. She and her partner Glen Sperling (of Harmony Remodeling, who has renovated many homes in the area) live in the home she purchased near Sherman Circle in 2006 with their two dogs and one cat. She loves being in easy walking distance to the studio.
Lighthouse Yoga Center, located at 4203 9th Street NW, is a community yoga studio that strives to meet the needs of our diverse Petworth neighborhood. They specialize in alignment-oriented Hatha Yoga, where they teach people from the ground up how to practice yoga safely and effectively. They offer all levels of classes, from their very popular Fundamentals series to several weekly classes for yoga teachers who want to continue to develop their skills.
“Lighthouse Yoga is also DC’s only Kundalini Yoga studio,” said Julie. “Our Kundalini classes draw students from all over the region.” (Kundalini is a form of yoga that emphasizes dynamic movements, breathing, and meditation).
“Some of our other popular classes are prenatal, kids yoga and Yoga for Larger Bodies,” she said. “Many of our teachers live here in Petworth, and we run some of the most highly-acclaimed teacher training programs in the DC-area for students who want to learn to teach yoga.”
“Our goal at Lighthouse is to provide a space here in Petworth where neighbors can come together to have fun, learn and evolve,” Julie said.
There are a ton of new classes and workshops happening this week at the studio that you should check out.
