🌈Happy Pride Month!🌈 We celebrate and uplift LGBTQ+ culture and identities! We also recognize that inclusivity, like yoga, is an ongoing practice. Yoga is, from its roots, in support of inclusivity, diversity, and accessibility.

Join us to dive deep into tools we can use together to make our yoga and community spaces braver and safer for LGBTQ+ folx while honoring yoga's cultures and traditions.

Pooja Virani is a Pain-Free Movement Specialist and Social Justice Consultant on a mission to spread joy, foster equality, and help people reach their highest potential.

I got to do one of my most favorite things this morning: teach gentle yoga for Sun & Moon Yoga Studio .

I haven't introduced myself in a long, long time... so I thought I'd say "hi!"

I'm Jen. I specialize in blending ancient wisdom with contemporary spiritual psychology to help folx of all stripes cultivate the inner resources of resilience, courage, and genuine happiness — what I see are the survive and thrive skills for the 21st century.

More specifically, I've been teaching yoga and mindfulness in the Washington, DC area for nearly 20 years. Of course, these days all the magic happens here in my tiny yoga room via Zoom.

I'm also an Internal Family Systems (IFS) practitioner. I taproot empathy, compassion, and mindful listening to help spiritual seekers process uncomfortable material surfaced in their practice. We can't bypass these feelings. In fact, when we lean in and heal old wounds, the spiritual path breaks wide open. What comes next is endless.

Social media is so weird. I can't really see you, but I want to know you. If you feel inclined, drop a few nuggets in the comments about yourself. Like the caterpillar in *Alice in Wonderland* says, "Who aaaaare yoooouuuuu?" 🐛 😊
I'm offering a little mini-workshop this Sunday on the contemplative practice of Lojong - pithy aphorisms that tilt the mind towards compassion.

I'm grateful for the generous support of Sun & Moon Yoga Studio for hosting this program. Sign up to join live or watch the recording here:

♥️ 🧘‍♀️ 🙏

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 months in any class, or opt for an unlimited membership to come as often

Operating as usual


As autumn arrives, imagine yourself on a weekend stroll through meadow and forest, enjoying delicious seasonal homemade meals, breathing in and breathing out with energizing and restorative yoga, roasting marshmallows by an evening fire, meeting new friends and bonding with old ones. That's what we've got in mind for our third weekend retreat to in West Virginia, Nov 4 -6. JOIN US! Space is limited to 12 people, and spots are already filling up.

Wherever you are, whatever you’re doing, take one minute - 60 seconds, to just be.

Feel where your body is meeting the ground.

Feel your breath arising with your next inhale and dissolving
with your next exhale.

Notice the sensations you’re experiencing.

Allow your mind to rest on the rhythm of breath. You may notice your heartbeat accompanying that rhythm.

As you carry on with your day, consider taking additional moments to recreate whatever sense of calm and ease you may have experienced here.

Life throws us out of balance, and being out of balance often brings aches, pains, and fatigue. Sometimes the causes are obvious, but when those causes linger and become persistent, they begin to feel more like "normal" and we cease to recognize them for what they are. Beyond what we hear of yoga being about ‘union,’ it is also about balance, particularly within the body. In this way, yoga offers us practical tools for reestablishing and better maintaining balance, stability, and freedom of movement. 

Join for a four-part weekend exploring ways to get back in balance. Themes include: Feet as Foundation: New Perspectives & Connections to the Knees and Hips (Friday afternoon), Loving the Low Back:  Fundamental and Functional Support for Movement  (Saturday early afternoon), Opening the Wings of the Breath: Keys to the Shoulder Girdle (Saturday late afternoon), and Breath, Self-Mastery, and Tools for Practice in Meeting Contemporary Health Challenges (Sunday early afternoon)

Register for full weekend or a la carte. Workshop will be presented in-person and livestreamed on Zoom, with a recording available for one month.


For a yoga teacher, those quiet moments in the room just before students arrive can be sacred. We take a moment to remember that human nature is unpredictable, and the laws of impermanence dictate that every class will be a new experience, a new co-creation, and a chance for potential unfolding in many different directions. Our sincere wish and prayer is that each one who enters this space will find ease in the moments they spend here, relief from suffering, and some semblance of peace.

Known as the Axial Age, the second half of the millennium before Jesus was born was a time of great human flourishing and spiritual curiosity – a field day for thought leaders and renegades. It saw Socrates drink poison hemlock rather be intellectually censored by the Greek state. It had Confucius clarifying morals and ethics, Hebrew prophets waxing poetic about individual accountability, and Yogis challenging ritual sacrifice that dictated how they could commune with the divine.

And it saw Siddhartha Gautama meditate his way to enlightenment under a tree after renouncing his own privilege that shielded him from the real suffering in the world. The Buddha's awakening coincided with awakenings that swept the globe and changed the way ordinary people considered their own awakened spirits.

It's hard to know how history will view our current times, but it's not hard to feel and see the numerous data points currently shaping our own axial moment. The pandemic and the concurrent socio-political-economic upheavals of the last few years have shifted the axis of the status quo.

Huge shifts are vibrating in and all around us, affecting everything from how we work professionally and how we relate inter-personally, to how we co-exist with nature and how we organize our civil structures.

Like the Buddha and thousands of his contemporaries, we need embodied practices, supportive community, and wisdom-driven opportunities to settle our minds to help us ride these waves of change. We hope you'll join us this fall for yoga, meditation, contemplative practices, and workshops to feed your mind/body/community/spirit.


“Find the place that has the right amount of sensation for you - not too much and just enough.” As heard in class by the marvelous 🌞🌙💜



Shout out to all you fans who recognize this line evoking an end-of-summer vibe. As the best music, literature, or other expressive art forms do, the phrase "August and Everything After" reminds us how certain moments in time can represent bridges from season to season, place to place, person to person. Moving toward the end of summer, we balance the savor of August warmth with promise of autumn crisp; the light mode of vacation season with the thoughtful mode of September renewal; the bounty of garden harvest with the hunkering down of fall energy.

The heat of summer is here, and it's only getting hotter. Now's the time to start taking steps to relieve the heat that may be causing havoc to our physical and emotional selves. If we hold on to the heat, we find ourselves with an over-abundance of pitta energy, or the fire element in Ayurveda. Too much pitta can cause us to feel irritable, judgmental, critical, quick to anger, and even depressed when things are not being done to our satisfaction. Left unchecked, too much pitta can also cause heartburn, skin rashes, acne flare ups, and other kinds of inflammation. Cooling down and staying calm becomes essential during this time of year.

Here’s 6 Ayurvedic tips for balancing out the summer heat, from Cindy Wargo (learn more in her workshop SUNDAY - sign up from our Events section)!

1. Exercise during the cool times of the day. Exercising in the heat of the day just makes a bad situation worse. It’s just too much heat for our bodies. You may also consider doing a lighter form of exercise, like power walk instead of run, or slow down your bike ride so you’re never feeling overheated.

2. Avoid spicy foods. Just like you don’t want to add heat to the body with exercise, don’t add heat with food either during this time of the year. You may also want to avoid fried food and grilled food. These methods are believed to over-heat the food making it more difficult to digest. Instead stick to food that was “cooked” on the vine, such as fresh salads and juicy fruits.

3. Avoid alcohol and other fermented foods and beverages. Since fermentation is super-heating for the body, opt for cooling drinks instead like cucumber-infused water, or blended watermelon.

4. Spend the evening relaxing. Summer is meant for lazy days. Soak in the pool, read a novel, go for a leisurely walk after a light dinner. Do anything that encourages conscious winding down and keeping calm.

5. Try Abhyanga, an Ayurvedic self-massage, with coconut oil. Abhyanga is a time-tested tool for bring consciousness into the body and practicing self-love. Add the coconut oil, and your skin will feel soft and hydrated in addition to smelling great! While you’re at it, add a teaspoon of coconut oil to your daily diet, too. Extra fats can keep the heat from drying us out, so we use them inside and out.

6. Practice yoga in a way that promotes calm. Practice in a non goal-oriented way, and only work at about 75% of your capacity. This is not the time of year to push yourself. Allow your focus to settle on being calm, effortless, grounded, easy, and comfortable while in each pose. Your practice should leave you feeling calm, cool, and relaxed. There are lots of restorative and yin options on our summer schedule!

Sun & Moon Yoga's In Depth Teacher Training: A Few Words! Listen to some snippets from our last sneak peek as teachers, graduates, and directors of the program share their thoughts on curiosity, relationship, taking...



Ease of movement is a beautiful gift of our complex and brilliant nervous system, which thrives on redundant motor neurons that help us take what's thrown at us (a strong wind, an emotional blow or a potentially deadly disease) and literally stay upright and functioning without conscious awareness. We don't necessarily access this amazing capacity on a regular basis, but we do get glimpses of it in times of extreme need as it busily organizes, sweeps out, and forges new pathways behind the scenes.

But on the road to flexibility, we must be on the lookout for significant potholes. Hitting those at high speed risks losing integrity that holds us together, and many of us move so fast that we don't realize we've gone beyond safe boundaries until something breaks, whether a tendon or a heart.

In asana practice as in life, we benefit from moving in a healthy range of motion that functionally supports and nourishes who we are rather than shape shifts us into what we think the world wants us to be. And as we celebrate our malleability, we can also seize opportunities for radical change – both within and around us – to move in mindful ways that define safe boundaries, strengthen our instabilities, and stabilize our proverbial core.

Navigating our way through our own bodies and alongside each other requires great and careful attention, with some choice guideposts to point the way. It is in service of the greater tenets of yoga (non-harming, truth, contentment, self-study, and discipline) to strive for balance as we tend to our habitual patterns, and to heal and be whole so that it may be echoed both deep within and all around.

It’s super hard to remain present – hard enough when there’s a task at hand requiring full attention, but ironically even harder when we’re trying to relax, slow down, and enjoy some peace. The great news is that a little bit goes a long way, and the benefits accrue. The moment you notice you’ve wandered away in your head is the moment you have returned. Come back from the stream of thoughts, and marvel at the stream of peace that runs through us each like a woodsy spring. Come back. Again and again and again.



Catha Pavloff wore the perfect shirt for her first class at Sun & Moon! New to our teaching staff but not new to the work, she can’t imagine life without yoga. Her yoga practice has helped her journey through life's most difficult challenges. It also plays a key role in helping her to age healthfully. She is passionate about sharing these same benefits with her students, and takes much joy in seeing her students grow - in all aspects of their being - through their practice. Students describe her teaching style as fun and dynamic, knowledgeable and yet light-hearted, challenging and yet respectful of students' limitations, and a facilitator of community and connection between students. Catha has practiced yoga since 2003 and has been teaching since 2011. She is a Yoga Alliance E-500 Hour Registered Yoga Teacher and Certified Continuing Education Provider.

Catch her subbing for Enid all summer long on Tuesday afternoons at 5p in-studio and on Zoom, and look for more classes with Catha this fall!
