I’m Brand New! What do I need to know?
Yoga is a state of being where the mind, body, and spirit are all deeply intertwined, awake, and connected. The practice of yoga is all about finding stillness through the ups and downs of life. This kind of stillness is easily called peace– and peace begins in our own minds, bodies, and spirits.
This practice is for everybody. We are a secular, minority owned and operated program striving to share a healing, therapeutic practice with anyone with a sincere desire to learn. You’re never too old, too young, too big, too small, too broken, or too good for practice.
We start slowly. At DC Ashtanga, we use the breath, the body, and the eyes to help find moments of stillness and meditation. This three-pointed, yet singular, focus is deceptively simple and somehow subversively challenging. It’s so satisfying. Practitioners will learn little bits of a sequence based on their own individual needs and capacity. They’ll work one-on-one with a teacher to refine and progress.
Come as you are. This is a fabulous meditation practice for, as Dan Harris says “fidgety skeptics,” as well as seasoned yoga practitioners looking for greater depth or understanding. Seriously, this yoga is for every body.
