Getting back into a workout routine is hard after a long weekend, but when the backdrop is the Lincoln Memorial at sunrise, we can be convinced.

Earn your bacon brunch with a free outdoor yoga session at Dumbarton House this Sunday from 9:30am-10:30am. An hour of chaturanga and downward dog deserves sinking your teeth into some epic pork.
