Since September is National Yoga Month--everybody go take advantage of a free week at a new studio!--guess it's now or never: teachers gotta be teachin'!
The timing couldn't be better for this girl--I'm settled into DC, and have begun teaching classes in Naylor Court, the historic alleyway around the corner from my place. I've also been able to line up a few yoga classes around town in some unique venues, where I hope you'll join me as I cut my chops as a new teacher:
- Monday 9/16, 7 pm on Naylor Court (email me if you want to join)
- Sunday 9/22, 11 am: Ooooh Yeeeeah: Stretching Together with DC Knowledge Commons on Naylor Court
- Wednesday 9/25, 6:30 pm: Weeknight Yoga for Neighbors, at Glen's Garden Market, the awesome new Dupont grocery store
I'm doing what I can to demystify yoga for people, by trying to make it more accessible to those who have never taken a class or have heard of it but have no idea what goes on in that mysterious incense-perfumed studio. This is why I teach classes in a public alleyway--the faces on people who turn the corner and stumble upon us in cat/cow breathing postures are priceless!
I'm also looking into teaching in some other new places around DC, including the brand new, gawgeous YMCA on W St NW, and at Shaw neighborhood library (of which I'm proudly a member as of yesterday!)...if you have any ideas for a venue I might not have thought of, please holler in a comment!
P.S. Thanks to my brother John and our friend Hilary for modeling the partner stretches for this post :-)
