Alexandria Activities This Weekend for Those Stuck at Home

Stuck at home this weekend social distancing but still want to connect with your fellow Alexandrians? A few online or quarantine-friendly activities

If the quarantine has you stressed out, there are several local online meditation classes. Mind the Mat Pilates and Yoga is live-streaming various yoga, pilates and other exercise classes. The Meditation Center of D.C. is also hosting live-streamed meditations every Saturday at 3:30 p.m. with a Buddist monk.

Other locations throughout Alexandria are offering online fitness or wellness classes.

For the artistic Alexandrians, the Kyo Gallery is offering virtual tours of the art exhibits. Local art gallery The Athenaeum is also encouraging artists of any age to submit their doodles.

According to the submission page:

The Athenaeum Gallery invites artists–or anyone of any age–to e-mail sketches, doodles and other graphics that make a visual statement about your experience with or thoughts about the current pandemic, social distancing and other ways your life has been touched by it. When something resonates with our jurors, we will post it to our website, Instagram and Facebook accounts as a sort of virtual gallery. We are looking for true, quick, gestural and doodle-like work, not fully conceived and finished works of art. The works can be in any medium. To submit sketches and doodles, email jpgs or pdfs to Athenaeum Gallery Director, Twig Murray, at [email protected]

If you don’t feel like cooking this weekend and want to support some local restaurants, Visit Alexandria has compiled a list of restaurants offering social distancing-safe take-out and delivery options.

Alexandria’s farmers markets are still operating, but only for take-out orders placed online.

ALXnow compiled a rundown of many online church services last week. This week, the Fairlington United Methodist Church is also hosting an all-ages Trivia Night at 5 p.m. on Sunday, April 4.
