THE VILLAGE VOICE

 

Say "OM" . . . Mommy & Me Seaside Yoga!

 

By Shelley Moore

" Om " is the all encompassing sound. It is the sound of the universe! It is the sound that can now be heard coming from the Powerhouse Park and Beach every Thursday morning this coming May.

Thanks to the Del Mar Foundation's Children's Committee parents, grandparents or anyone with little ones almost crawling to four years of age can enjoy the meditative and physical benefits of yoga in one of the most beautiful settings, our own Del Mar seaside!

The first classes are to be held Thursday May 1, 8, 15 and 22 at Powerhouse Park/Beach with the 10 am to 11 am class for tyke's age 22 months through four years of age. The 11 am to noon class is for that wonderful age of sitting but not yet crawling to 21 months.

This is a fun-loving introduction to yoga for parent and child and an enjoyable way to spend a healthy, peaceful morning in our beautiful seaside community. Depending on tides and parent input, class will either stay on the Powerhouse lawn or move to the sand.

Just getting out of the house is sometimes a feat with little ones, but by joining a group of 12 parents and children to enjoy the outdoors and stress-reducing effects of yoga you will be glad you did! The cost is $50 for the series and while space is limited, first come, first served, we hope you will reserve your spot for you and your child today.

To join us, simply e-mail your contact information and your child's age to Children@DelMarFoundation.org.
