Yoga on the Hill Sliding Over to East Lawn

Posted April 22, 2015 at 1:42pm

When last we checked in with the Congressional Yogi Association, the nascent group of Hill staffers had selected the West Lawn to serve as the staging area for its debut event.  

The CYA has since repositioned itself, bending over backward to make its coming-out party — still scheduled for May 1 — more attractive to the community.  


“It will be more convenient for members and participants to access … and easily visible on Independence Avenue Southwest,” an organizer told HOH about shifting the al fresco workout over to the grassy area opposite the Cannon House Office Building.  

Rep. Tim Ryan, D-Ohio, remains on board as official host, while former NFL linebacker Keith Mitchell is still expected to run the show.  

All attendees need to worry about is getting there and being well prepared.  

“Please bring your own mat and take public transportation,” the CYA implores fellow enthusiasts.
