extendYoga, is a North Bethesda-based yoga studio. Formed in the state of Maryland in 2011. extendYoga’s guiding principles are social responsibility and sustainability. We are committed to the health and well-being of our planet and everyone on it. We participate in many charities and organizations, frequently offer cause-related classes and events and strive to make yoga accessible by offering many lower price classes.
We are a warm and delightfully diverse community that is accessible to everyone – all ages, body types, ability and experience. Whether you are new to yoga and simply exploring what’s possible, looking for a breakthrough or looking to break a sweat, need to unwind or reconnect with yourself, we have yoga for you. And your life. Our spacious, serene sanctuary is home to an active, engaged and vibrant community. We believe in fostering a positive, nurturing environment that supports and challenges you to extend yourself physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
As an environmentally conscious studio, we are committed to reducing our footprint on the planet by practicing in several green efforts.
Highlights of green practices at extendYoga include:
We run on 100% wind power provided by Ethical Electric.
We are a proud Trees For the Future member. Meaning?– we happily plant one tree for every full price class package purchased at extendYoga.
We are an EPA Green Power Partner. As a partner, we are helping support the development of new renewable generation capacity nationwide while also helping protect the environment.
We keep our studio green and clean, but we also keep our roads clean! By being a part of the Montgomery County Adopt A Road (AAR) program, we clean our adopted road at least six times a year and help reduce trash and litter along County roads and maintain a clean environment.
