  1. St. Mark's Yoga Center on Capitol Hill at 3rd and A Streets SE is offering Free Yoga Friday until the end of June 2012. The class is from 7 - 8am in the beautiful upstairs Dance Studio and taught by Alex Rosen, who studied with Yogi Hari. Mats, blankets and blocks are free of charge. All levels welcome. As non-profit Yoga Center, our other regular classes are offered at very affordable cost. SMYC has been offering Peace since 1978. http://www.stmarks.net/music-and-arts/yoga
