We hope that you and yours are staying safe and sound. We continue to be mindful about offering opportunities for support and interaction, even beyond our longstanding options. You may already know that our classes, groups, and workshops have transitioned to being held online. These have been very well received, and we have been working to add additional options for interaction, guidance, and support.

Here is a rundown of some new options on our schedule. For more information or to join in, please call us at 202-223-3077 or email

Nutrition workshop: “The COVID-19 Kitchen”
Saturday, April 18 at 11:00-11:45 am

Please join NCWW Dietitian, Nicole Brown for “The COVID-19 Kitchen” workshop. Topics include strategic meal and snack planning, recipe resources, ingredient substitutions, food safety, and strategies for grocery and e-grocery shopping.

NEW – short morning and evening mindfulness exercises

For many of us, working from home means losing much of the structure of our typical workdays. As a small way to help re-orient the days, we just began a series of short (5-10 min), guided mindfulness, meditation, and relaxation exercises.

Morning sessions are held Monday-Friday at 7:45-7:55 am to help kick off the workday.

Evening sessions are held Monday-Friday, varying between 5pm and 7pm, to help unwind after the workday. For some, we hope this will serve as a milestone to leave work to the side and begin your personal time for the reminder of the evening; for those whose work will continue, we hope this will serve as a few moments to de-stress and recharge.

All are invited. In leu of a fee, we ask that you make a small donation to a charity or cause of your choice.

Behavioral groups

In addition to ongoing NCWW groups, we have added additional options to help cope with the unprecedented challenges we’re experiencing. Groups are held virtually via our private videoconferencing systems. Administration (including insurance reimbursement) is the same as in-person groups.

Yoga…for Every Body

Our much-loved gentle yoga classes are being held virtually, too. These small, supportive classes to help you move better and feel connected to your body. Always individualized and nonjudgmental, they especially focus on those who are new to yoga, but are appropriate for anyone.

To join us for any of these, or with questions or comments, please call us 202-223-3077 or email

We’ll continue to update you on these and future opportunities. If you want to receive more frequent announcements about our services, please send us your preferred email contact.

Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us if you need anything.
