Free Yoga Mat Storage

free mat storage yoga dc


Anyone can store a mat at Yoga District for free if you put it in the area marked for student mat storage (not the areas for student rental mats). Your mat must be secured with a mat tie around it securely or preferably covered in a yoga mat bag, otherwise it will be donated to Yoga Activist. We are sorry that we cannot be responsible for your mat while it is stored at Yoga District. People leave their mats in our storage areas at their own risk, but we haven’t had any mat thieves as the community is very respectful and peaceful.

From time to time, we will ask students to leave a note affixed to the outside of their rolled yoga mat stating the date the mat was last used. After at least one month of asking students to leave such a note, we will remove all mats that don’t have such a note affixed to them.

Those mats will be donated to Yoga Activist, our sister nonprofit. Yoga Activist donates mats to yoga outreach programs sharing yoga and mindfulness with underserved communities. Check out Yoga Activist’s mat program accomplishments last year to learn 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."
