We believe that yoga enlivens the best in each of us, nourishes the roots of our wellbeing, and empowers us to care for the lives around us. We need each other!
We're here to serve & inspire you by offering...
A Warm & Inviting Space... where everybody is welcome.
We are dedicated to making everyone who comes through Flow’s doors feel like a welcomed friend, and creating an oasis to balance our busy urban lives. An authentic smile, a cup of tea, a clean, cozy and supportive space to practice, lounge, and mingle ... These are just some of the ways we love to take good care of you. We're committed to fostering an inclusive community that celebrates the fullness of each person and their unique expressions of religion, race, color, politics, culture, sexual and gender identity, age, life experience, and socioeconomic status.
Our students and staff are the heart and soul of what makes Flow so special. We nurture community through Satsang, the ancient tradition of coming together for meaningful connection to support the awaking of what is extraordinary in each of us. We offer space & time in between our classes for lingering and deepening of our connections to each other, our city and our purpose.
Skillful & compassionate, Flow's teachers are widely recognized as the best in DC. We are honored that such an inspirational and dedicated tribe of teachers calls Flow their home. Their expertise, experience, and passion shine through in the classroom. It’s a difference in Flow's classes you can feel.
A Rich Class Schedule
Everyone's welcome. With nearly 100 classes each week, you’ll always find one to fit your mood, your practice, and your schedule. Our classes are rooted in respected traditions that nurture holistic physical, mental, and spiritual growth. Offerings range from classes designed for absolute beginners to deeply experienced practitioners -- classes that’ll make you move and sweat or slow down and relax, that’ll tap your inner dancer or empower the warrior within you, or that'll simply bring you home to your own body to release stress, detoxify, and heal.
Yoga for Health & Wellness
Modern medicine has started to embrace what yogis have known for a long time: that, in the hands of a gifted therapist, yoga has a profound power to heal. Flow’s Wellness program is led by a group of talented yoga therapists dedicated to affirming and supporting your innate power to heal. Through regular workshops, small group classes and private one-on-one sessions, they’ve helped countless people leverage yoga to manage conditions, reduce symptoms, restore balance, and regain health.
World-Class Guest Teachers
Magic can happen when you drink directly from the source. Flow is humbled and honored to host a stellar line-up of world class yogis, change agents and global visionaries -- including Shiva Rea, Seane Corn, Radanath Swami and many others. We feel genuinely blessed that our teachers' teachers have made Flow their DC home-away-from-home, and that we can help share their light with the nation’s capital.
Fundraisers, Charitable Giving & Karma Yoga
We gather regularly to take our yoga off the mat and each year we raise thousands of dollars and donate countless hours for local and global causes that are close to our hearts including our dear friends at N Street Village and One Common Unity. We also recognize the power of uniting people in community and are proud to be founding organizers of DC’s annual Global Mala, DC Yoga Week and Yoga on the Mall.

Our centers was designed by a LEED-certified architect, received the DC Mayor's Award for Environmental Excellence and was featured in Yoga Journal as a standard for how to run an eco-friendly studio.

Our Roots -We’re a local family owned and grown community studio filled with world-class yoga love - since 2004.
Debra Perlson-Mishalove opened Flow's doors in 2004. Since our humble beginnings (the first studio space was originally located on the 3rd Fl. of our P Street locale), our dream for Flow has always been two-fold... one, to create a warm, welcoming space to gather in community, connect and explore the depths of a modern day yoga practice, and two, to create an authentic home for the areas most beloved and experienced teachers. I
n this way we can serve world-class yoga and offer a rich schedule that ranges from more gentle, spiritually & physically nourishing classes to powerful strength & sweat based offerings, mindful lifestyle & social justice programming.
Today, Flow is a DC treasure and thousands (local & out of town guests) join us each week for our class experiences. Our offerings continue to deepen as a vibrant reflection of the growth and interests of our community.
