My name is Sariane Leigh and I love to practice yoga :).
New Blog Alert! www.anacostiayogi.com
Anacostia Yogi is the moniker I embraced when I moved to Anacostia in 2005. I assumed the role of the sole yoga teacher East of the River. Slowly but surely, other health fanatics started to emerge and now I am just one of the many yoga teachers in Anacostia who are obsessed with a holistic and healthier hood.
I started out teaching free vinyasa flow yoga classes to a small group of people at Covenant House, Barry Farms Recreation Center and Spirit Anacostia Fitness Center.
As one of Anacostia's few certified yoga instructors and pilates instructors I aim to bring a socially conscious and awareness-based flow into the yoga practice. I teach yoga every Monday at the Ryland Epworth Methodist Church at 3200 S Street SE 7pm-8pm.
Residents living east of the river really want and need high quality health alternatives that address prevention not just sickness. I alone can't keep up with the demand. Anacostia now has an emerging yoga, Pilates, zumba, African dance martial arts, urban farming and eco-conscious community. Check out other grassroots initiatives like Heal Our Hood, Aya Community Market and Anacostia Watershed Society.
I am not sure what will happen next but I am dedicated to any and everything that will improve the quality of health East of the Anacostia River.
