Congressional Cemetery (1801 E St. SE) is bringing in Realignment Studio founder Alyson Shade to lead weekly workouts dubbed “Yoga Mortis.” The vinyasa flow classes, held in the chapel each Monday from 6 to 7 p.m., are open to all levels of practitioners.  

Organizers will provide some mats, but personal accessories are welcome.  

“Come prepared to show off your very best Corpse Pose alongside your Hill-East neighbors!” the event website urges.  

The donation-based classes (suggested contribution: $10) are scheduled to continue through July 27.
