    Join us for our Spring Yoga Series! From Dharma to Laughing yoga, we invite you to relax, laugh, and breathe!

    There is no cost to attend. Space is limited to 20 RPCV/w members. Non-RPCVw members will be waitlisted and contacted two days prior to the event. Check your membership status here. Not a member? Sign up here! (Since space is limited please be mindful of cancelling your RSVP timely if plans change.)

    Join RPCV/w for a fun, relaxing Dharma Yoga class at Shaw Library! Dharma Yoga is classical Hatha Raja Yoga. This class is accessible to all levels.

    In this class, we will move our bodies followed by deep relaxation and a brief meditation. Please come and join Alle and give yourself space to relax and just be during National Women's Month. Come and learn more about our Women Empowering Women Initiative!

    Alle began practicing yoga daily after COSing from PC as a Maternal and Child Health Educator in Madagascar '13-'15. Feeling not 'at home' at home in the US, yoga gave Alle a safe space to process and be with herself. She completed her 200-hour Teacher Training with legendary yoga master Sri Dharma Mittra in New York 2017.

  • During the month of March we honor all the important contributions women have made and will make to improve our world.  In order for women to create positive change we need to help lift them up so they can own their gifts and strengths. Calvary Women’s Services offers housing, health, education, and an employment program to assist homeless women in DC. Join RPCV/W and Women Empowering Women, in supporting women by serving dinner at Calvary Women's Services.  

    Volunteers will be providing and serving dinner for Calvary residents in the evening on Friday March 30th, 2018. We will be serving in two shifts, from 5:30 pm to 6:30 pm and from 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm. Volunteers can sign up for one or both shifts. We will also be bringing the meal. So, if you wish to volunteer for this event, please be prepared to bring a dish to serve. There will be a sign up for dishes and supplies in subsequent emails. Help RPCV/W and WEW celebrate herstory with Calvary this month.
