CorePower Yoga on Connecticut

A planned CorePower Yoga appears to be one step closer to opening on Connecticut Avenue NW.

Workers covered the windows at 1150 Connecticut Avenue NW with a sign advertising the forthcoming Denver-based yoga company earlier this week.

As for what the studio might hold, the CorePower website says it’s slated to house “three large and luxurious yoga rooms, as well as a range of amenities including changing rooms with showers and private lockers.” The studio will also include a retail boutique selling “activewear and accessories.”

Though a representative from CorePower could not be reached for comment, the company’s website says the location could open by the end of fall.

Dailey MethodA new fitness studio is set to open soon on U Street.

The Dailey Method, a West Coast barre-style fitness chain, will open on the third floor at 1201 U Street NW, the same building that once housed The Islander restaurant on the ground level.

The method —  named for founder Jill Dailey — is a one-hour workout concept with classes based on barre exercises, pilates and yoga.

The new studio will include space for 25-person classes, lockers and showers, says Dailey Method’s D.C. location owner and fitness trainer, Lynette Ruiz.

“We felt like U Street and the 14th Street corridor is the place where we wanted to be,” says Ruiz. “There is a lot of growth in that area. We felt like we really wanted to be apart of that.”

Though the company hasn’t announced its opening date, Ruiz promises the new location will open by the end of the summer.

In the meantime, Ruiz says residents can try out the classes for free every Wednesday at 7 p.m. at the Georgetown Lululemon (3265 M Street NW).
