Yoga is back at The Wharf. District Flow Yoga opens this Saturday, Feb. 15 with free classes all day. The pop-up studio in the former Yoga Factory, 715 Wharf St. SW, is a local, woman-owned business made possible through a partnership between owners Jackie Krakowski and Lena Manning and The Wharf.
“We are excited to bring yoga back to The Wharf through our partnership with District Flow.” said Andrew Son, Vice President of Asset Management at Madison Marquette, who worked on the deal with Krakowski and Manning. “We look forward to the neighborhood enjoying and supporting District Flow Yoga, as well as the many other locally-owned small businesses at The Wharf.”
Manning and Krakowski say they are thrilled to bring District Flow back to Southwest. Originally from New Jersey, Krakowski is a sound and Reiki healer and a certified instructor in a wide variety of methods, including Yin, Fusion, Vinyasa LIIT and HIIT. A long-time resident of Southwest, she might be familiar to former clients of the Yoga Factory, where she was the manager as well as an instructor.
Krakowski teamed up with Manning to open the studio. An Annapolis business woman, Manning said that she has seen the benefits of yoga on the lives of loved ones and couldn’t resist this opportunity to keep yoga in the Southwest community.
“Our mission at District Flow Yoga School is to promote individual growth amidst the community through yoga education and practice,” said Krakowski and Manning. “None of this would have been possible without the Wharf’s team and the Southwest community.”
Krakowski said that the team was excited to be able to bring yoga and a community-driven space to the SWDC community as a pop-up studio on The Wharf while they searched for a long-term place to call home, ideally located in Southwest or as close as possible to the community.
District Flow will open with a soft schedule that will later be gradually augmented. Eight class formats, both heated and unheated, are offered seven days a week. Classes are offered as early as 6 a.m. and over lunch. There are also full weekday and weekend schedules. Ask about their opening day specials! Also, Southwesters should ask about neighborhood rates.
