Yoga is a tool of self-healing, self-soothing, and empowerment for everyone. By taking classes at Yoga District, you’re not only helping support a community-run yoga collective offer affordable and by-donation studio classes to all… you’re also helping our sister non-profit, Yoga Activist, support yoga programs for trauma survivors across the country.
Established by Yoga District-Founder Jasmine Chehrazi, Yoga Activist has been featured in The Washington Post and Yoga Journal for helping volunteer teachers set up their own yoga outreach programs. These programs help bring free yoga to the homeless, incarcerated persons, asylees, and other communities that stand to benefit from yoga as much as you do.
