Celebrates YOGA, CommUNITY and WHOLEness
Reston Community Center will once again be the place to celebrate commUNITY with Northern Virginia’s best yoga instructors and alternative health care providers, as they offer fun and educational methods at the Love Your Body Yoga Festival.
Organized by Beloved Yoga, with locations in Reston and Great Falls, the event is free to the public and will take place on Sunday, June 12, from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Love Your Body Yoga Festival will offer free activities and entertainment for the whole family, including live music, healing demonstrations, food samples, and soothing therapies such as Reiki, chiropracty, massage, and yoga. Yoga studios and wellness centers of Northern Virginia will offer classes and services as well as share information about healthy lifestyles. There will be free prize drawings and vendor booths on Market Street, while the Kids Tent will offer storytelling, laughter yoga, and more, for all ages.
Donations for class participation will benefit Cornerstones, a local nonprofit organization that promotes self-sufficiency by providing support and advocacy for those in need of food, shelter, affordable housing, quality childcare, and other human services.
“This event was born from the desire to create ease and accessibility for people to try yoga and celebrates the diverse yoga commUNITY of Northern Virginia,” said Maryam Ovissi, co-owner of Beloved Yoga and 2016 Best of Reston award-winner. “At Love Your Body Yoga Festival, everyone can learn about the many ways to take care of their bodies from the inside out—physically, mentally, and emotionally—to feel stronger and healthier.”
The event also launches the official start of the 9th Annual Virginia Yoga Week, June 12 – 19, when many yoga studios and independent teachers offer free, $5 yoga and Karma classes throughout the Commonwealth.
Beloved Yoga has also created a Mind Body Fund, which supports yoga teachers so that they can go into the Cornerstones community, making yoga accessible for all.
