A D.C. yoga studio is taking the Unite the Right rally this weekend as an opportunity to call for peace and community.

Yoga District is offering a free meditation gathering for peace on Sunday at its studio on H Street from 8:15 to 9:15 p.m.,  the company announced in a Friday email.

“As some come to DC this weekend to celebrate hatred and intolerance, let’s celebrate and fight for our right to be who we are: a diverse and vibrant community built on love,” the email read.

The studio is also offering a F---Fascism promotion, five classes for $35.

“We hope every time you use this pass to take a class you’ll be reminded of our shared mission to find peace within and fight for a better world for all,” Yoga District said.

One year after the deadly Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, leaders of the American white nationalist movement are hosting an anniversary rally in Washington on Saturday and Sunday in Lafayette Park by the White House.
