Why The Daley

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).

Soul & Spirits at The Daley 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?

Announcing GTM's Secret Tool to Happiness

Live Music at Soul & Spirits Presented by Spindrift 

Remember the last time you had the time of your life? If you were truly feeling excellent in your body, you had to have been out of your mind. Figuratively.  That's because feeling good is about you.

So, if you want to unlock your inner Buddha, you have to forget caring about what other's are thinking . Our favorite tool for this? Music.

Grip The Mat is stoked to announce that Soul & Spirits Presented by Spindrift will feature live music to shake your soul awake. The smooth vibrations of Washington,DC-based band Hollertown are sure to rewire your brain and facilitate a total sensory experience. 

Hollertown is a badass blue grass band.  Their instruments of choice include a banjo, mandolin, fiddle, guitar, bass and vocals. Mix these rockstars with Grip The Mat yoga and healthy Spindrift cocktails and you have the best, most intuitive event in Washington, DC.

Tickets to this masked-yoga event include the live music and  all-natural Spindrift cocktails open bar.  All levels of yoga experience are welcome. Spoon-playing and other hidden musical talents are not required, but highly encouraged.
