Halloween in the Village!!

halloween2016web

C3, Carlsbad Causes for Community, is holding its annual Halloween In The Village Saturday, October 29 at C3 headquarters, Carlsbad Village Yoga Co-op. This fun-filled event begins at 2:00 pm at the Carlsbad Village Yoga Co-op and continues with trick-or-treating throughout The Carlsbad Village until 6:00 pm. It is a free community event for families and kids of all ages.

Halloween In The Village kicks off with the C3 Fun Zone where guests will be greeted with live music by The Elements, a teenage rock band, and enjoy a jump house, face painting, hula-hoops, and cotton candy. Guests will be given a trick-or-treat bag and a map that highlights all of the generous merchants that will be giving out treats.

To add to the festivities, there will be a costume contest for the cutest, funniest and scariest costume. Trick-or-treaters should check-in at 2:15 pm to enter the contest, and winners will be selected at 3:00 pm.

“We are so proud to be hosting the fourth annual Halloween In The Village!,” said Deb Ferraro, C3 Founder. “It’s really wonderful how many businesses in The Carlsbad Village unite as a community to help our community!”

The event is made possible in large part by the kindness of the sponsors: presenting sponsor, Homelife Village Realtors, and community sponsors: Brubaker and Associates, Carlsbad Village Yoga Co-op, and Carlsbad Counseling Center.

Once a city-funded event, Halloween In The Village is now led by C3, a non-profit consisting of local businesses, non-profits and Carlsbad residents who collaborate to raise money for various community causes by putting on programs and events around The Carlsbad Village.

Next month, C3 will host its C3 Village-wide Food Drive to benefit Got Your Back San Diego. C3 will be collecting peanut butter, macaroni and cheese, cans of tuna, and other easy to prepare items for hungry kids in North County.

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:

  • Saturdays 10:45am-11:45am: Gentle Yoga/Prenatal Approved 
  • Thursdays 4:30pm-5:30pm: Gentle Hatha Yoga
  • Tuesdays:  7:30pm-8:30pm:  Candlelight Restorative Yoga
  • Wednesdays: 7:30pm-8:30pm:  Yinki Yoga (Yin + Reiki Energy Healing + Crystal Sound Bowls)
  • Fridays 6:00pm-7:00pm:  Restorative/Yin Yoga
