Our mission

Yoga is a tool of self-healing, self-soothing, and empowerment for everyone. By taking classes at Yoga District, you’re not only helping support a community-run yoga collective offer affordable and by-donation studio classes to all… you’re also helping our sister non-profit, Yoga Activist, support yoga programs for trauma survivors across the country.

Established by Yoga District-Founder Jasmine Chehrazi, Yoga Activist has been featured in The Washington Post and Yoga Journal for helping volunteer teachers set up their own yoga outreach programs. These programs help bring free yoga to the homeless, incarcerated persons, asylees, and other communities that stand to benefit from yoga as much as you do.

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."
