Meet Carla, one of Yoga District’s lovely teachers.

In these video she shares why she practices and teaches yoga.
Carla’s goal for her students: “The more they know themselves, the happier they will be.”


Introduction to Yoga

Sitting at a vegetarian restaurant in Lima Peru, Carla noticed students with mats on their way to the studio across the street. In that moment, her curiosity was piqued and she took her first yoga class. She left that class feeling happy and peaceful. So began her introduction yoga and  years of dedicated practice.

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."
