What Yoga Taught Hanna?

Yoga has been an incredible part of my life. The strengthening aspect of yoga along with patience, vulnerability, and intention on and off the mat.

Vulnerability has really been an aspect of yoga that has been transformational to my life and relationships. Cultivating tenderness and vulnerability is incredibly difficult in our world.  I now lean into the discomfort and recognize it’s not the end of the world.

Why Practice Yoga?

Yoga is a completely different kind of workout for my body.

I am challenged to try new things and find a new sense of stillness. I love the workout that yoga provides, and to share that with other yogis is a wonderful experience.

Why Try Yoga?

Don’t overthink it!  Yoga could be viewed as intense but non-judgement is one of its core principles.

I hope that newcomers know that it’s a very open and caring community. Get on the mat and do what feels right. Don’t worry about what others are doing around you.

I love sharing yoga with new people. It’s incredibe to recognize the power and badassery in yogis.

Chaturanga Yoga Journal

Chaturanga- Yoga Journal

Yoga Pose that Most Represents Hanna’s Life

I would say a chaturanga. A chaturanga has a lot of moving parts: physical movement, the quieting of your mind, and breathing.

Chaturanga helps strengthens your core and find your center, something I am attempting at this point in my life.

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."
