We believe that everyone deserves the holistic benefits of yoga: stress relief, self-empowerment, mental health, and physical fitness. That’s why we offer a variety of workplace wellness programs and events. Whether you want a one-time online yoga class for your staff on our Zoom account, or a series of classes, we have affordable options for for-profit and non-profit organizations.
It’s a busy world we live in today, with increasing demands on employers and employees alike. We work long hours, often hunched over a computer. We skip meals, keep a phone glued to our ear, and rarely leave our workspace for a break. Before long, these work habits begin to take their toll on our bodies and minds in the form of stress, tension and sickness. And while a mild amount of stress can help us meet deadlines, too much stress, or constant stress, can interfere with our physical and mental health. How we respond to stress can have a significant impact on our total health. Yoga can remove stress from the body and mind.
Workplace Yoga Programs Have Many Benefits
Employees that are happy and full of energy, and as a result, more productive
Decline in stress-related sick occurrences
Improved concentration, decision-making skills and ability to multi-task

Relief of head, neck and back strain, carpal tunnel syndrome, insomnia, high blood pressure and work-related injuries from repetitive motion

Health is Wealth
It’s as simple as that. When we are healthy, we are better able to face challenges and give our best to whatever endeavor we undertake.

Thanks for sharing yoga with us. It really helped.
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."
