Love Your Body — founded by Reston resident and Beloved Yoga co-owner Maryam Ovissi — is a chance to try yoga and take part in a wide variety of health and wellness activities for the whole family.
“This is truly an event for everyone — young and old, yogis, and those who have never tried yoga before,” says Ovissi. “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 free event will run from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Donations for participation on specific classes will benefit Cornerstones.
Love Your Body Yoga Festival also launches the official start of Virginia Yoga Week 2014.

Chris Green is one of the DMV’s finest fitness instructors. A Lululemon and South Block ambassador, he is a coach and mentor to so many. He embodies grace, positivity and motivation in ways that no one else can. If we could all learn a thing or two from him, the world would be a much better place. He does so much for others, and does so with a smile on his face 99% of the time.
He recently ruptured his Achilles and has an incredibly long and tough journey ahead. As if COVID hadn’t impacted fitness professionals enough, throw this in the mix and it’s a double, even triple whammy. CG is no longer able to work and do what he loves for the time being because of this and we’d love your support.
