Owning a business can be stressful. Jasmine Chehrazi, Founder of the Yoga District turned a need for stress relief into a business venture that now has five locations. Her mission is to make yoga accessible to all. At $10 a class, she is one of the most affordable studios in DC. How does she do it, grow and still live true to her mission?
