Bought 24 classes for $24 at the beginning of the year, without having seen the place, having taken about two yoga classes in my 25 years. I was a yoga skeptic, not really into the 'ohm-ing' and third eye stuff. But yup, they got me hooked.
Valerie and Rexx are great! Last week my lower back was hurting so much during the final rest (corpse pose?) and Valerie noticed my squirming about on the mat, and brought these sandbags to put under my knees to straighten things out. Definitely give this place a try!
While it does get busy on weekday evenings, they rarely turn you away if you come 10-15 mins early. Just be on time.
This review is for the spa - it's a beautiful space and very relaxing. I got the 90-minute intro massage for $90 with Jeff. He was fantastic! He really took the time to talk with me about what kind of massage I wanted and which areas to focus on. He had a great combination of techniques to work with and around my knee injury. I left feeling super relaxed. Just don't plan to do too much right after the massage!
Like others on Yelp I purchased the Living Social deal for Buddha B. Wow! I LOVE this place! The studio is bright, spacious. The teachers are fantastic. I took my first class after walking over there from work on an oppressively hot day - the kind of humid DC heat that makes you just want to jump into a pool to cool off and not do any strenuous workouts. So I showed up kind of grumpy and exhausted for my first class, but Valerie has such infectious energy that I got focused and energized about my practice right away.
great space, great class! the instructor taught with a good mix of energy + zen.
This place is good, I like the instructors and it's such a friendly environment. I think Rexx is my favorite because he is so hilarious. I have never laughed that much during a yoga class!

I'm so happy I purchased this deal! Valerie was AWESOME, really knows her stuff, and knows how to lead a class. I can't wait to use the rest of my classes.
Rexx has a great style of instruction .. I'm excited to meet the other teachers.

I am very happy to have found Buddha B yoga. Like many, I began at Buddha B due to a livingsocial coupon, but I am pretty sure I will become a regular paying student. Valerie is great and I sense she that she somehow really cares about each of us.....for instance, in my first class she learned and referred to every one by name, even though most of us were new. The classes are challenging, but I always feel safe to try everything. Also it is a non competitive atmosphere (unlike other studios I have visited). One more thing. The location is great. One block from U Street metro stop, and I feel perfectly safe at night time.
Great new wide open space!
Valerie's an awesome instructor!
The $10/10 days beginner deal's a steal... check it out!
I have been to many yoga studios in DC, and I've loved all of them in their own ways (it's hard not to love yoga). This is the first studio I've felt compelled to write a review about. Coming in out of the windiest day I can remember ever experiencing in DC, I found in Valerie's morning class (the first one I've attended with her and at the studio) the perfect blend of peace and challenge. She has an unbelievably lovely teaching manner - of serenity and knowledge. This is not a studio to miss.
I love this place. I've gone 3 times in the past week, and it just keeps getting better. Valerie is a great instructor -- really pushes you to improve and grow, but in a very non-threatening way. She genuinely cares about her practice and her yogis!
Buddha B Yoga is a great studio, with an awesome energy. I am new to yoga, but I owe my love for yoga to its owner Valerie. I encourage everyone to attend class here.
Buddha B Yoga is a beautiful studio and a warm and welcoming new center for the DC yoga community. As a yoga teacher, I could not recommend this studio more highly! I encourage everyone looking for a calm and serene space, and knowledgeable teachers such as Valerie, to attend a class here.
I have been practicing yoga on and off over the past 10 years and I was thrilled that a new yoga studio has opened up next to my building as I've been trying to get back into yoga after straining muscles playing tennis and getting bored with running. I am picky with yoga studios as I have experienced disappointment with overcrowded studios with instructors who pay little attention to alignment and breathing techniques. They just opened their studio 4 days ago, and I've been 3 days in a row and I am looking forward to going in as often as I can. So far I've only taken classes from Valerie, but she is a great instructor. There are straps, blocks, blankets, wedges, cushions etc. available to help with positioning and alignment, and even though I consider myself a seasoned yogi, she helped me strengthen and improve even my basic downward dog and chaturanga by paying careful attention to alignment, and pushing me to perfect each posture. The studio is bright, sunny and clean and located close to the U Street/Cardozo metro stop. And they have a great introductory offer-- $10 for the first 10 days, definitely worth a try especially if you are looking for a place to start or continue your yoga practice.
