Yoga District is launching an exciting new series of charitable yoga classes that will donate all of the proceeds to a select DC organization. Join us for our inaugural class with live music on January 10, 2015 from 8:30pm to 10:30pm to benefit Casa Ruby, a local drop-in community center serving as a safe space for the LGBT community in DC.

After the hectic holidays, settle into winter and welcome the season with a quiet practice of yin yoga taught by Fiona and accompanied by atmospheric live music from Insect Factory. Yin yoga is a slow-paced style of yoga that holds each pose for a longer period of time. It is suitable for beginners as well as practiced yogis.

Insect Factory is Washington, D.C.-area musician Jeff Barsky, who uses the electric guitar to build textural tones that slowly evolve into hypnotic, atmospheric layers of sound. Preview Jeff’s music on his website.

Fiona personally selected Casa Ruby as the beneficiary of her class. Casa Ruby serves the LGBT community here in DC by providing valuable services such as hot meals, clothing exchange, support groups, case management, emergency housing referrals, and legal services counseling (criminal/immigration). Learn more about Casa Ruby in our interview with its founder.

Yoga District is proud to support the work that Casa Ruby is doing and hope you will join us to contribute to this great cause! Sign up for the class.

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."
