Jul 29, 2021   //   by Audrey   //   Conscious Eating, Green Living, Holistic Wellness, Mindfulness  //  No Comments

Along with sunny weather and relaxing beach days, summer provides us with a wealth of produce. Whether you’re picking your own peaches, browsing through a farmers market, or grabbing tomatoes at the grocery store, there are many opportunities to take advantage of all the produce that summer has to offer.

However, delicious produce isn’t only available in the summer – you can get a variety of fruits and vegetables at any time of the year! In this blog post, we’ll explore the practice of seasonal eating and consider how it relates to conscious eating. We’ll also discuss some of its advantages and offer tips for those hoping to practice seasonal eating this summer or all-year-long.


Conscious Eating: Extending the Practice of Yoga to Food

Everyday choices, like what we eat for breakfast or buy at the grocery store, can impact our bodies, minds, and communities as well as potentially improve our health. 

Join Audrey, a member of our Yoga District community, as she explores how food nourishes us. She will delve into the topic of conscious eating and consider how food can affect many aspects of our lives.


The Teachers

The diverse family of DC yoga teachers at Yoga District are dedicated to making yoga accessible to everyone through a huge variety of yoga class types, from vinyasa flow to restorative and beyond. Most Yoga District teachers are graduates of Yoga District’s nationally-attended 200 hour teacher training program. All Yoga District classes focus on coordinating breath with body movement to promote flexibility, strength, and peace of mind. We strongly believe in yoga as therapy, so catch one of our classes whenever you need a healthy dose of self-care.

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."
