Founded by Paula Baake in May 2007, Dancing Mind Yoga began in the upstairs of her Alexandria home. The room had enough mat space for nine students and within six months the classes were selling out. It was time for Dancing Mind to look for a real home.
In May of 2008, Dancing Mind Yoga made the City of Falls Church its new “home” and moved into the second floor space of where the previous Falls Church News Press was located. Our little studio grew and we doubled our space within two years. Dancing Mind Yoga continued to expand and quickly became a community destination.
In September 2013, we expanded once again and moved downstairs into a state of the art 8,500 square foot space with three heated yoga studios, a cycling room, a CrossFit box, locker rooms with showers, and a wellness center offering massage, personal training, private yoga and life coaching. With the shift in space came a shift in name, and Dancing Mind Yoga became Dancing Mind – offering Yoga, CrossFit, and Cycling.
Our current studio is designed with flow in mind and to provide our members with an inspiring and uplifting space which they can call their own.
This is a place where people experience an inside out revolution. Authentic. Real. Without judgment, anger or fear. Our mission is to create community and transform lives.
At Dancing Mind, our entire staff is here to remind everyone who walks through our doors of that special light that shines bright within themselves. We’re here to remove their fears and doubts, and to help them turn their dreams into a reality. As Baron Baptiste says, we’re here to support them into their “journey into power”.
