What happens in yoga teacher training?  Will it be 12 hours of non-stop yoga?  Is it like taking  yoga class after yoga class?  Does the training have a sense of community?  Is the history of yoga and different yoga practices taught?  Does the training include teaching yoga in a greater context? Will the training suitably instruct me to teach others?

How do the yoga teacher and the rest of the class help that person in need? This is exactly what transpired during one of Andrew’s Yoga District classes.  

When a student gets sick in class: stay calm, check their vitals, and, if necessary, call 911. Do your best given the circumstance.

Read on to find out what happened in Andrew’s class and learn how he maintained a safe space for all–even as an emergency situation unfolded. Read more >>

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."
