Each Yoga District studio is run by community members from the studio’s surrounding neighborhood. These community members volunteer 3-4 hours a week doing anything from providing legal advice to washing cups, from watering plants to signing in students. These volunteers are the backbone of Yoga District. They are a huge reason why Yoga District is able to offer yoga to DC for $12 or less for more than five years.

In exchange for 3-4 volunteer hours per week Yoga District’s volunteers enjoy free unlimited classes, up to $500 off teacher training tuition, and a leading role in their yoga community. There’s no telling where this might lead you… in fact, Yoga District founder Jasmine Chehrazi started to regularly practice yoga by volunteering at DC Yoga, the studio that previously occupied the space at Yoga District Dupont. Many volunteers end up taking the Yoga District teacher training program and ultimately teaching with Yoga District. While many volunteers stay on for years, we ask for at least a three month commitment.

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."
