Karma Yoga and Wellness

Don’t judge a studio by its name: This place offers way more than yoga, although there is plenty of that. The 60- to 75-minute classes include HIIT (high-intensity interval training), tai chi, qigong and meditation. Instead of Wi-Fi and retail, the studio has a lounge, library and self-practice area, plus it showcases art from local artists. But true to its name, the studio gives as much as it gets, donating one-month passes to local schools, shelters and nonprofits; offering free classes on Sundays at Mr. Brown’s Park in Falls Church; and providing free, self-guided meditation times on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Membership is $120/month for unlimited classes, $90 for a renewing five-class pass and $170 for a renewing 10-class pass. // 246-A West Broad St., Falls Church
