Jafar Alexander (representing VA)













Jafar Alexander is a Certified IAYT Yoga Therapist, E-500 RYT and Director of BelovedYoga International School based in Reston Virginia. Jafar's belief is "Yoga is yoga. No need to complicate it, it's quite simple. Breathe, move, and find your way to silence. Everything you need to know is right here... Atha!" His devoted study of Yoga has made him a multi-dimensional teacher who is able to playfully weave stories with expert sequencing, wise biomechanic cultivation and thoughtful philosophical inquiry all in one asana, making his classes what he likes to call "Yogasanas- keeping the Yoga in the Asana!" Jafar is Lululemon's Meditation Ambassador and serves as a General Board Advisor to the nonprofit, United We Om. The basis of all the work he offers is one of remembering. Remembering the inherent value we ALL have as sentient beings.

"Yoga on the Mall is one of my favorite events each year. With the Lincoln Memorial and the Washington Monument creating the backdrop to our community practice, it is always so inspiring to see thousands of yoga practitioners from all around the DMV area come together and unify around a collective vision of healing and unity."

"I am humbled and grateful to be a part of one of those special opportunities in which humans from all walks of life can simply gather and remember their shared humanity. To celebrate their similarities and their strengths on the individual level, and collective, is a powerful experience to take part in."

This year our event will be held at the iconic Lincoln Memorial
