We typically host events in the central DC area, so why are we going out of our way to host Soul & Spirits at The Daley at Shady Grove? Well...we’re glad you asked!
Grip The Mat’s purpose has always been to bring communities together, and sometimes it feels like those living in the DMV, outside of the district, get left behind in all the fun! The Shady Grove area is just a red line away (or an uber, because metro fires are real) and it has so much to offer to our yogis! The Shady Grove / Rockville neighborhood is one of the best areas to live near Washington D.C., especially for those wanting a well-balanced nature-filled lifestyle. Think: parks and trails for running, hiking, and biking- oh my! As community builders, we want to be able to share and showcase what each part of the DMV has to offer, so we partnered with a local residential building, The Daley, to host our next Soul & Spirits!
What is Shady Grove about and how is The Daley perfect for young professionals who seek a well balanced lifestyle?
So here’s the scoop...The Daley is just a two-minute trail walk directly to the Shady Grove metro station and the space is truly exceptional, with more than 10,000 square feet of amenity space. From outdoor gathering areas to quiet, indoor nooks, and even a yoga studio! They offer plenty of places that are ideal for chilling with friends, taking care of business, or just doing your own thing; it’s a community within a community (but with an awesome pool).
The Daley has no shortage of exclusive resident events and opportunities to mingle with your neighbors, and this FREE Soul & Spirits event is no exception. We are beyond excited to be able to offer the best yoga community to one of the best places and communities to live in the DMV. So what do you say? Join us?
Los Angeles, CA - Grip The Mat yoga is a full sensory experience, which is why we're teaming up with the legendary JBL to bring Los Angeles a next-level soulful experience of yoga, wine, and everything fine.

To all the hardworking hustlers IN the world's most powerful city: Grip The Mat is a space for you to release stress and inhibitions.
On Wednesday, May 18, 2016, GTM Soul & Spirits at Hustle 2.0, a pop-up art exhibit by our buddies No Kings Collective.
Over 70 yogis switched out the pencil skirts and slacks for yoga pants. We could sit together, mat-to-mat, for a collective centering and a post-yoga cocktail-ing.
The vibe was right as our badass GTM duo Kiley and Brandon led the class through a calming mediation and a steady Vinyasa flow, all to soul-thumping music.
Attendees walked home with a swag bag full of take-home treats from our supporters. A big thank you to Illy and Honest Tea for elevating our spirits! As always, KIND Snacks showed up strong and Chelsea Collective, one of our favorite women's fitness boutiques, stuffed the swag bags with items like gym towels, headphones and even glass water bottles!
From the bottom of our hearts, thank you to everyone who showed up! You are exactly what make Grip The Mat events so special.
Cheers & Namaste!
