Curious about Yoga or Want to Start Doing Yoga, but not ready to go to a Yoga Studio?
Then this small (4 person), 4 week introduction to yoga class is for you.
The class is taught by registered and insured Yoga Teacher Deb Koolbeck (Yoga Alliance RYT 200 Profile), who specializes in and enjoys introducing adults and kids to yoga in a friendly, fun, and safe way. Beyond teaching yoga, Deb is an experienced educator with years of experience in formal and informal educational environments, focusing on making learning fun and engaging.
The 4 person class allows for personal attention in a safe community of learners, and 4 weeks of class is enough to try yoga and see what your next steps will be – including being comfortable enough with yoga and yourself to consider joining a yoga studio.
Classes are 1.25 hours, which includes time for questions and discussion, as well explorations of breath work and meditation.
Classes are September 17th, 24th and October 1st, 8th at Samsara House, 36 R Street NW (the Bloomingdale neighborhood). Some street parking is available; the Red and Green metro lines are within safe walking distance (Shaw or NoMa), and the P6, 80, 92, 93 Buses stop within a block or so of Samsara House 2023.
Cost is $75 for all 4 classes and is non-refundable. Yoga mat not required.
Waivers are required before the class starts. You will be emailed the waiver to fill out and bring it with you to the first class.
Deb is a great yoga teacher because she offers personalized attention to each of her students. Her love for teaching yoga shines through every single class. Her willingness to continue to learn is encouraging and reassuring for newer students who may not be as comfortable with the practice of yoga. I will continue to take her classes as long as she is teaching!
Deb's teaching style is awesome. Her classes are very laid back, but I definitely still feel like I get a work out! She's also great about showing you how to modify the moves if, like me, you're just not that flexible. Her motto is "no pain, no strain," and I love that. Her class was my first venture into the world of yoga and I would highly recommend her for beginners and advanced practitioners alike.
Location: 36 R Street NW (approx. half-block from Big Bear Café) light blue house with Tibetan prayer flags over the door.

Samsara House 2023’s strategy is to exemplify a gift-economy over the current market economy, one that values giving over having. While all events cost at least one dollar to cover utilities, any additional contribution will go towards periodically giving half back to a socially responsible organization or cause in need in the community that you also help identify. Going together as a river, we build a thriving community of communities and pave the way for a new world. Samsara House 2023 is a Holacracy powered organization founded by Cullen Kowalski at a row house in Bloomingdale, New Washington, D.C.
