Come Celebrate THREE Years with Us!!

CVY3+39_v5

A note from Deb (founder/owner if Carlsbad Village Yoga Co-op):

Three years ago, I signed a lease for what is now our amazing co-op. I knew less than 20 people in Carlsbad. Most were either yoga teachers or students and the rest were neighbors or my landlords. I had no money for marketing and used to drag a big homemade cardboard YOGA sign onto the Roosevelt Street sidewalk in hopes that people would find us. My plan was to work hard and to move into the studio space if the money from refinancing my house in Denver ran out. That’s not a plan. And thankfully that didn’t happen.

What did happen was MAGIC! Well sort of… Dreams, hope, faith, hard work, persistence, that of course happened (and still does)… But YOU HAPPENED!! And that’s the MAGIC part! A whole entire COMMUNITY evolved out of an EMPTY space. A community full of LOVE surfaced and has been GROWING and GLOWING under a now big lit up orange YOGA sign!

So let’s UNITE because we have a LOT to CELEBRATE! As the studio turns 3 and as I turn 39, I reflect on all the growth of not only the studio, but of all the individuals that make up our community. The friendships that have evolved, the tears that have dropped, the fears that have been overcome, and all the personal growth and breakthroughs that have happened to so many of us on so many levels.

THANK YOU for being part of this AMAZING JOURNEY!
We’ve come a long way, baby! And I’m SO GRATEFUL to be on this journey with YOU!

Join Deb and the rest of the wonderful people that make this space a warm and friendly environment on September 19th, 2015 7:30pm to celebrate another year!

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!

Yoga: Not Just for Adults!

What’s your daily schedule look like during the week??  Wake-up, breakfast, get the kids to school, work, pick up kids from school, take kids to ballet or soccer practice, home, dinner, laundry, bed….the daily grind is an exhausting one.  Not to mention, we probably have our iPhones glued to our palms 70% of the day. In this hi-tech world, we rely heavily on our portable electronic devices to provide us entertainment, information, and schedule our overly-full days.

Practicing yoga not only helps adults cope with the daily stressors of our hectic lives, but can also be extremely beneficial for children.  Yoga at an early age is valuable to both physical and mental development in children.  It enhances flexibility, strength, and coordination as well as assists concentration and provides a sense of calm in this busy world we live in.  It is important to provide children with the necessary tools to be comfortable with silence and stillness, manage stress, and to appreciate our connection to the natural world.

If you are not sure how to introduce your kids to yoga, we have many opportunities to help you guide you and your children.

First, if you are new to yoga and are expecting, we offer a couple Gentle yoga classes (prenatal approved) as well as slow Restorative/Yin classes:
