C3 Grant Recipients: Boys and Girls Clubs of Carlsbad (Kids Yoga)

B&GGrant2_kids

 

In January 2014 Carlsbad Causes for Community hosted a Fairy Tale Ball Fundraiser.
With such wonderful support and numerous donations during that event, we were able to raise enough money to sponsor C3’s first grant:

                                      Three Months of Kids Yoga granted to Boys Girls ClubLogoWithLocal2

              

During the last three months (March-May), the Boys and Girls Clubs of Carlsbad rounded up groups of various kids and escorted them to our yoga co-op every Wednesday afternoon for a 60 minute yoga session lead by Raechal Levin.

Children ages 6-12 years of age experienced the benefits of yoga through breathing, stretching and concentration.  Learning basic poses like Downward Facing Dog (Adho Mukha Svanasana), Cobra (Bhujangasana), and Warrior I (Virabhadrasana I) encourages confidence in physical and mental self.

Carlsbad Village Yoga Co-op offers kids yoga for all ages: Mommy & Me (6 weeks-2 years), Little Yogis Kids Yoga (Ages 2-6), and Kids Yoga (Ages 6-12).  Please refer to our website www.carlsbadvillageyoga.com for specific class dates and times!

Carlsbad Village Yoga Co-op is not only a yoga studio offering diverse yoga classes and workshops, but is also community space for wellness, fun, and fitness.

Our love of community eventually grew into Carlsbad Causes for Community, a team of local businesses and Carlsbad residents who collaborate to raise money for various community causes by organizing and implementing events and projects that serve the community. C3 focuses on providing social, athletic, recreational, and wellness services and activities for those who live, work, and play in the city of Carlsbad.

With a grant from the City of Carlsbad, Carlsbad Causes for Community and FrogQuest are partnering up to bring you two fun ways to get to know Carlsbad Village!  Whether you’re a local or a visitor from a neighboring city, these Scavenger Hunts will be an exciting way to explore and learn about the Village!

This hunt is open to all ages and will include family and wacky options to make this educational, fun, and also full of optional costumes and hidden gem challenges.

Both Scavenger Hunts will serve to be educational, fun, and even wacky and daring as participants compete to capture interactive photo quests on their smartphones and to find hidden treasures throughout the Village! Costumes are optional in these unique scavenger hunts and include quests such as mummifying a teammate with toilet paper in front of landmarks or involving your entire team in a conga line as you acquaint yourself with the Village. Teams earning the highest total points will win “Visit the Village” gift packages from various Village merchants. First place winners of each hunt will win $500 packages, while 2nd and 3rd place runner-ups will each win $250 packages!
