Along with sunny weather and relaxing beach days, summer provides us with a wealth of produce. Whether you’re picking your own peaches, browsing through a farmers market, or grabbing tomatoes at the grocery store, there are many opportunities to take advantage of all the produce that summer has to offer.
However, delicious produce isn’t only available in the summer – you can get a variety of fruits and vegetables at any time of the year! In this blog post, we’ll explore the practice of seasonal eating and consider how it relates to conscious eating. We’ll also discuss some of its advantages and offer tips for those hoping to practice seasonal eating this summer or all-year-long.
Everyday choices, like what we eat for breakfast or buy at the grocery store, can impact our bodies, minds, and communities as well as potentially improve our health.
Join Audrey, a member of our Yoga District community, as she explores how food nourishes us. She will delve into the topic of conscious eating and consider how food can affect many aspects of our lives.
Next in our Cut Your Carbon Footprint series, we explore many ways to live a more sustainable life through our food habits.
Read on for guidance on how to minimize your carbon footprint and potentially improve your health. We’ll introduce methods such as: planning meals to reduce waste, growing your own food, and transitioning toward a more plant-based diet.
During a crisis, sometimes benign and routine actions keep us grounded and nourished so we are available to fight for justice.
In these moments I go back to food staples that use items already in my pantry. Something that will provide shelf-stable and easy nourishment.
Today that’s granola. It’s a simple and incredibly versatile recipe that can easily be adjusted based on your needs.
In these trying times, it’s recommended we don’t go to the grocery store often. Instead, let’s be mindful and use the items we have on hand at home.
Give our grocery store workers a little break from the crowds. It’s more sustainable, budget friendly, efficient for our wallets and world.
Here is a recipe that will hopefully use up some dribs and drabs you might already have in your pantry.
This gem of a recipe uses a can of pumpkin left over from fall and some red lentils begging for attention.

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."
