Today’s post features Darin Volwiler, owner of Dragon’s Breath Yoga (3423 14th St NW). Dragon’s Breath Yoga offers mindful yoga that is accessible to all. Teachers bring their magical approach to the practice by sharing their knowledge and passion, focusing on breath, alignment, and strengthening. Based on the foundations of Forrest, Ashtanga, and Vinyasa, Dragon’s Breath offers a range of styles to challenge and inspire any yogi.

Tell us about your business! When was it founded and what inspired you to start your business?

I founded the studio in 2018. I felt the need to create a place for yogis to practice and feel safe.

We offer high quality yoga instruction to yoga practitioners of all levels – no matter who you are, what you look like, who and what you love, or what you believe. Being a member of an active and caring community is important to us and having a lair to explore connection is a guiding principle. Our goal is to make each student, instructor, and staff member feel supported and guided through the evolution and growth of their yoga practice. The journey toward becoming our biggest, brightest, best, most kind, and most magical selves begins when we roll out the mat.

Tell us a little bit about yourself.

I’m a Forrest Yoga Guardian and dragon — you should meet me to learn more.

What is your favorite thing about this community?

Their willingness to continue to show up.

If you could tell all of the residents in the Columbia Heights Main Street area one thing, what would it be?

We’re all uncomfortable right now. But yoga teaches us to learn from it rather than pushing it aside. Join us for a class and we will help you learn from it too.
