Casa Ruby 2YD logo

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.
