Welcome to Lighthouse Yoga Center

Lighthouse Yoga Center, Washington, DC’s home for Kundalini and alignment-oriented Hatha Yoga has been providing high-quality and affordable yoga classes to the DC community since 2013.

We are rooted in our community and we pride ourselves on our ability to bring neighbors together in this tranquil space to practice yoga and foster connections.


Lighthouse’s Mission:  To uplift and empower ourselves and each other to create a more free, fair, just, and equitable world through yoga, meditation, and community. We collectively work for social, racial and economic justice.

Lighthouse’s Vision: To create a diverse, inclusive and safe space for people to come together to heal. We oppose all forms of racism, sexism, heterosexism, and any other form of discrimation or treatment of one another as less than equal.

Spread the Light. Be the Change.

The Practices of Hatha Yoga: A Retreat Hosted by Tara Lemerise

Join Tara for an immersive weekend getaway at the beautiful Blue Mountain Retreat Center!

Join us for a deep dive into the philosophy, theory, and experience of the foundational practices of yoga: asana (posture work), pranayama (breathwork), and meditation (mind work.) You are welcome to participate in as much or as little as you like. Some yoga experience is recommended but you do not have to be able to do fancy poses to attend this retreat. The main prerequisite is an interest in learning more about yoga!
