Join Brandon Copeland of Khepera Wellness at the Historical Society of Washington, D.C. for an energy-packed Go-Go music infused yoga session. Go-Go is a singularly unique product of the culture of the District of Columbia. Come enliven your yoga practice in this exciting pairing of D.C.’s Go-Go music, paired with trap music, and intentional yoga practice. Learn about Go-Go while having an opportunity to center and energize yourself in the beautiful and historic Carnegie Library on Mt. Vernon Square. Bring your mat, and come enjoy.
Brandon Copeland has been featured in the Washington Post, Blavity, and The Fader. Copeland is committed to dynamic, soul-inspired yoga experiences that expand our notions of who can and should be doing yoga. Known for his powerful Trap Yoga classes, join Brandon as he marries D.C.’s regional music with trap music.
Participants will also receive a discounted ticket to their next Khepera Wellness class. Prior to the class, a tour of the Historic Carnegie Building will begin at 1 p.m. Go-Go Yoga helps to support the mission of the Historical Society of D.C. Help us continue to interpret, collect, and share the history and culture of D.C.!
Please note: This is a BYOM (Bring Your Own Mat) event. The Go-Go yoga class will take place in the second floor T. Roosevelt Gallery.
ABOUT BRANDON COPELAND
Brandon began practicing yoga as a way to relieve mental stress and focus on being more mindful. The journey he has been on, exploring the body’s capabilities and opportunities, has brought joy, love, and insight to his personal life and to the lives of others. He is a graduate of Yoga District’s 200 hour teacher training and has received hundreds of more hours of instruction on asana, alignment, nutrition, and philosophy from many dynamic yogis including: David Kyle, Marie Belle Perez Riviera, and James Brown. Brandon became interested in yoga at Howard University where he went on to get a bachelors of science in Psychology with a minor focus on Philosophy. Brandon encourages you to be creative on your mat and create your own practice one pose at a time. He finds ways to challenge the most advanced, as well as the new and unsure, students. His mission is to enlighten people to their own potential and to help cultivate their internal sources of power, creativity and love.
Khepera Wellness is a power yoga studio located within The Dance Institute of Washington. At Khepera Wellness we offer classes that challenge the mind, body, and breath of each individual practicing on the mat. We believe that each person’s experience is unique and do our best to offer as many modifications, advice and adjustments students may need.
Helping students grow and challenge themselves to evolve their perspective on health and wellness has brought our offerings out of the studio and into schools and offices. We happily offer private, small group and large group classes in schools, athletic facilities and in homes. Ultimately we’re a community of people dedicated to supporting one another’s evolution. We’re happy to support your evolution as well. Namaste!
