Sun & Moon Yoga Studio

Sun & Moon is about connection: minds to bodies, yoga to wellness, and people to each other. Our tea Sun & Moon Yoga is about connection.

We connect minds to bodies, yoga to wellness, and people to each other. Our teachers have been supporting and embracing every individual who walks through our locally-owned, community-supported doors since 1994. We keep room temperatures in the comfortable 70s, so the body generates its own inner heat at a natural pace. Students can commit to a regular weekly class, grab a flex pass good for six m

We had a grand time discovering and expanding our "yoga science toolkits" this past weekend with Yoga Mind Yoga Body: Yoga with Gernot Huber.

Gernot helped us identify how many of our habitual ways of moving are at odds with the science-based principles of what constitutes good movement. Over two lively and engaging afternoons at our sunny Fairfax studio, he served as a marvelous guide to yoga explorers investigating everything from the "neuroeconomics of movement" and the downsides to paying attention to the periphery at the expense of our center to human skeletal variations.

Thanks for all that inspiration, Gernot!

Humorously, one day I made a list titled “If I Did All The Things Every Day To Be Fully Healthy, I Would:” It had at least a dozen items: Meditate. Hydrate. Exfoliate. Moisturize. Kale. Bananas. Weights. Cardio. Yoga. Journal. Forest Bathe. Barefoot Walk. Cold Dip. Sing and Dance (but don’t let anyone see or hear). Sleep.

The list didn’t even include dog walks, house cleaning, cooking, or the very important social/emotional stuff of friends, family, books, or an episode (or three) of great t.v.

It also didn’t include my Actual Job!

The hours don’t add up.

I did not make this list to feel bad about myself. Let’s not turn self-care into self-shame. I made the list as a reminder that I can choose a few things each day and feel satisfied, knowing that taking good care of myself means patience and practicality. Tomorrow I am free to choose another handful of gems from the list, or maybe none at all on a lazy Sunday.

In the words of the beloved poet Mary Oliver, “You do not have to walk on your knees for a hundred miles through the desert repenting.” We don’t have to be perfect. We only have to be flexible and forgiving, towards ourselves and each other.

Mostly, I feel infinitely lucky to live in a time and place where the resources for everything on my list are at hand, and I’m grateful to be part of a mutual network of support to make these to-dos accessible.

At Sun & Moon, we have a wholesome menu of great choices for you to tap into wellness for your body, heart-mind, and community. Let us help you check a few self-care options off your list, and be as well as you can be.

As we roll into 2024, cast a vision for well-being that includes your whole and imperfectly perfect self. In general, the time you carve out for yourself may be scarce; in yoga, this time can be sacred, especially when it's earmarked in your calendar each week: same day, same time, same place.

Since 1994, our gold standard as a school of yoga has been the weekly class that covers a full range of instruction and practice, from the beginning to end of a season. In these classes, you'll find community with the same group of kindreds, continuity with the teacher's thematic focus for the quarter, and consistency within your own yoga rhythm.

Our quarterly registration is also the best price point for this weekly you-time, with maximum flexibility in case you're sick or traveling.

Find your time, find your teacher, and find yourself. We can't wait to be well with you.

Whatever you've got planned for the next two weeks, we know the outward call for socializing and merry-making pairs well with the inward comfort and joy of mindful practice with intentional community. Our signature holiday offerings can help you strike that balance.

It has been our honor and pleasure to serve this community all year long, with so many sparkling changes and opportunities for growth.

May you meet whatever arises with a mind at ease, a body in balance, and a heart full of compassion.

Recipe for a perfect Saturday: 1. Take a long morning walk or hike in the woods, feeling the ground steady beneath you. Watch the leaves, just like you, seeking calm ground. Breathe in the fresh fall air, breathe out peace in all possible directions. 2. Grab some lunch at one of the amazing local restaurants in Old Town Fairfax. 3. Head over to Sun & Moon to treat your feet with and famous Yoga For Your Feet workshop. You’ll learn some foot anatomy, follow some traditional energy lines, and use your own compassionate hands for a delicious guided and meditative foot massage. Link in bio.

In her newsletter this week, the Buddhist Reverend angel Kyodo williams shared that she is "allowing her heartbreak" so that she does not end up wanting to "break the world." This feels right. If we harden with anger, it simply gets reflected back out at each other. Instead, let's soften to the very real pain inside as we witness fellow human suffering across the world. And better yet, let's soften into that pain together and hold each other up with care.

Join us this Sunday evening for a multi-studio community meditation that brings hearts together in a genuine wish for peace. This event is co-hosted in community along with and

It's hard to know where to start when we're seeking a mindful way of life but the world feels like it's lost its mind. The conundrum is age-old. Click below to read more about "training in the preliminaries" of awareness: we are precious, we are temporary, we have impact, and we can open our hearts to ease suffering.

A thought, or four — Sun & Moon Yoga Studio All we can do is recognize the precious opportunities we have right in front of us to celebrate joys and to hold space for pain, whether that pain is in our own hearts, in the hearts of friends and family, or halfway across the world among human hearts enduring devastating violence.

Be Micro-Amazed — Sun & Moon Yoga Studio 08/31/2023

Portals to mindfulness...

Be Micro-Amazed — Sun & Moon Yoga Studio It's a lot easier to be mindful for extraordinary moments - reading a captivating novel, or eating a delicious meal, or sitting with a dear friend in their heartache - than it is to be mindful while walking 20 steps from one place in our home to the next.

08/31/2023

My daughter recently caught me walking through the house, my head buried in phone, watching TikTok. Half hilarious, half mortifying. I couldn’t walk the literal 20 steps from office to lunch without mindless social media entertainment.

Clearly a mindfulness fail, but failures are growth opportunities. It was a good time to consider what I might be missing by overlooking those transitional moments during the day.

In spite of an admitted addiction to my phone, I’m actually pretty good at focusing on other things - reading books still works for my brain, as does writing, being with friends, and formal meditation sessions. So why am I trying - whether consciously or not - to fill those in-between moments with mindLESSness instead of mindFULness?

The Pali word for mindfulness, sati (smrti in Sanskrit), means “not forgetting ordinary things.” It's a lot easier to be mindful for extraordinary moments - reading a captivating novel, or eating a delicious meal, or sitting with a dear friend in their heartache - than it is to be mindful while walking 20 steps from one place at home to the next, the same 20 steps we walk dozens of times a day.

What's the point of tending to the ordinary?

The point is to form habits of mind that enrich our lives on a granular and sustainable scale. These transitional moments in our days that feel like voids we need to fill with mindlessness could actually be portals from one mindFUL activity to the next, and they can become mindful practices unto themselves.

We can learn to be micro-amazed. It could be a celebration that our body can still carry us forward; or a prayerful moment that the food we’re about to eat will nourish us well; or a chance to give thanks for the shelter we may take for granted. In this way, our lives might feel more enriched, more magical, more worth appreciating.
