The practice aims to improve the physical, mental, and emotional bodies.This is an introductory (Dharma I) class, and everyone is welcome regardless of prior yoga experience or flexibility level.

RPCV/W Goes to Peace Corps Connect!
Each year, the National Peace Corps Association (NPCA) holds the Peace Corps Connect conference. This year it will be held in the Pocono Mountains in Shawnee, Pennsylvania! RPCV/W will be taking two vans from the DMV area up to the conference and back. Please join us and reserve your spot today. We are asking for $20 per individual who rides our van to cover the cost of transportation (i.e. gas).
And because we have arranged this carpool, NPCA has generously given us a 10% discount on conference registration when you use the code "rideshare10"! Please take a look at the conference website for more details on the conference and registration prices. Discounted prices are also available for recently returned volunteers!
For those who have RSVP'd, the organizers will contact you in order to arrange an exact time and location for pick up. At this point, we plan to leave the DC area around noon on August 23.
We invite you to attend the official kick-off event where you will be introduced to your mentor/mentee(s) and get to know each other over refreshments.
We will also discuss what is expected of you and how the mentoring program will unfold in the coming months. We will talk about the mentoring topics, the changes we have made and how we will interact with you in the course of the program. Mentors and mentees will agree on their first mentoring meetings. Although some folks maybe unable to attend, we encourage everyone to network and attend even if your mentee/mentor will be unable to attend.
The event is open to Mentees and Mentors only. Drinks and light refreshments will be available for purchase.
