Are you famous among your friends for being a yogi? Are you mildly famous in the DC yoga circuit? Or are you simply someone who enjoys some outdoor yoga action?

Wherever you may be in your exploration of Yoga, come out and join us for a free one-hour yoga session this Saturday!

85 Broads on behalf of Girls On The Run DC is sponsoring this Saturday’s “Yoga On The Mall” event. Donations will be accepted on behalf of Girls on The Run DC (“GOTR”), an afterschool program that seeks to instill a lifelong love of running and healthy living in tweens and pre-teen girls living in the DC area.  85 Broads is a 25,000 strong global network of women who are inspired, empowered, and connected.

This Saturday’s “Yoga On The Mall” kicks off a month long series of events for GOTR DC. These events are intended to raise awareness of the afterschool program, and to encourage participation in GOTR’s annual spring 5k fundraiser scheduled to take place on June 5th at American University.  For additional information about the 5k or to sign up, please visit http://gotrdc.org/.

Leading the outdoor yoga session will be Marissa and Casey—both with Yoga Activist, a national network of qualified Yoga Instructors who seek to introduce and instruct communities on the benefits of Yoga.
