Begin the New Year with Intention.

Join us to celebrate and welcome the first weekend of the year. We’ll gather at a luxurious, mountain-view property amidst the greenery in Luray, VA, January 2-4, 2015. The new year brings wonderful opportunities and loads of potential. It’s a time for reflection, refinement, and resolution, but through all of the promises for change and aspiration, you remain perfectly wonderful you. Your natural state of peace, truth and pure bliss is always right there at the center, awaiting celebration.

Yoga District’s much-loved teacher, Cara George, will lead the New Year’s Retreat in Virginia’s beautiful Shenandoah Valley that will honor resolution, but also celebrate you.

We’ll practice yoga, meditation, reiki and guided relaxation, eat delicious vegan meals, enjoy the hot tub, listen to music, chat or play games around a cozy fire, relax and have fun. The weekend is an opportunity to let go, have fun, and celebrate your natural, centered state so that we can move into 2015 feeling present and alive! Throughout the weekend, you will have the opportunity to workshop poses and ask lots of questions about asana and meditation. We’ll be staying in a luxurious, mountain-view property in Luray, Virginia (approx. 2 hours drive from Washington DC).

The Next Step

The Yoga District 200 and 500 hour teacher training certification programs, registered by the Yoga Alliance are unique in their emphasis on diversity of teaching styles studied, personal attention, and trauma sensitive yoga. It's no coincidence that Yoga District is regularly voted the leading studio in the nation's capital, and that most of its classes are taught by graduates of its training program. As a full time yoga school, small group trainings are led up to eight times a year by a dedicated faculty including Jasmine Chehrazi, contributor to the Harvard Karma Yoga Project teacher training, teacher training faculty at George Washington University, Yoga Alliance Standards Committee Advisory Board Member, Yoga Activist Founder, and Yoga Service Council Advisory Board Member. So take your practice and community involvement to the next level by joining a training. There's a reason why our graduates call the training "transformative."
