“We have a real opportunity to change things here. This is our chance to show them how real yogis do business, consciously. I am here to remind you, you already know how. Namaste.”
Has the long standing Friday Night tradition of going to a crowded bar to drink cocktails been replaced with cold-pressed juice and coconut water at your local yoga studio? With already 10 sold out events this season throughout the U.S., the popularity of Friday Night Yoga Club may be a sign that times are changing.
On a mission to celebrate community, Friday Night Yoga Club (a.k.a. FNYC) was created four years ago to gather local yoga communities in Denver and Boulder around the most innovative and inspiring yoga instructors. Now, with expansion into five new cities this year, FNYC is now one of the fastest growing “yoga parties” in the U.S. now in Boston, Boulder, Denver, Los Angeles, Milwaukee, Nashville, and San Diego.
These music-fueled events featuring world-renowned DJ’s, musicians and emerging local artists, are proving to offer a perfect night out for a 75-minute yoga flow, healthy eating and mingling with your local conscious-minded community to the soundtrack of live music.
Friday Night Yoga Club has been called “The hottest wintertime yoga party in Colorado,” (Westword), “The best party in Los Angeles,” (Ryland Adams). Could this be true? You’ll just have to go see for yourself, and my guess is you will not only agree, but be pretty happy with yourself in the morning when you wake up with nothing more than a bliss hangover. Namaste friends!

What’s cool about this event is it’s not only a celebration of yoga, music and the great outdoors, it’s a celebration in support of organizations that empower young people to reach their full potential through yoga, nutrition, environmental projects and service.
Since its launch in 2008, Yoga Rocks the Park (YRP), nationally presented by Natural Fitness, has grown steadily from one small grassroots gathering in Denver, Colorado to one of the fastest growing, family-friendly, outdoor live music, yoga, and wellness celebrations in the United States. YRP has almost doubled its U.S. presence over the last year, with ongoing weekly events in over 14 cities across the country, including Boulder, Chicago, Phoenix, San Francisco, Portland and many others, with attendance topping over 400 yogis and their families in select cities.
As YRP events kick off in cities throughout the United States, YRP is proud to announce the launch of its weekly San Diego series beginning Sunday, August 4 – Sunday, September 8, 2013.
Events will take place on Sunday mornings during the summer at Stagecoach Park in Carlsbad, California from 8:30 am – 10:30 am, supported locally by Yoga Six, Toe Sox, True Nutrition, Paleo Pro, Yoga Tropics, and Ignite Yoga Fusion, among other local and national supporters, including Luna Bar, Rive, My Yoga Online, Yogi Tunes, be present, Southwest Institute of Healing Arts, Yoganonymous, Hanuman Festival, USA Mart and Natural Awakenings Magazine.
Each weekly event includes a 75-minute all-levels yoga class led by one of San Diego’s top yoga teachers, accompanied by live music from emerging and nationally recognized musicians, and a kids’ yoga camp to complement adult classes, designed for children aged 3-10, presented by the world renowned Next Generation Yoga Team. The camp begins a few minutes before the event and ends a few minutes after the adult class so parents can participate in the full practice.
Events also include a vendor village, providing guests with unique experiences and access to innovations in wellness with YRP’s national and local partners.
This year’s lineup includes yoga classes with Tracey Stockalper, Jenn Perell, Sarah Haughton, Ashton Szabo, Jano Galindo, Ashley Disharoon and Katie Brauer with live music from Mike Stockalper, Luke Williams, Steve Gold, DJ Golden Lane, DJ Jano and Mental Physix.

What’s cool about this event is it’s not only a celebration of yoga, music and the great outdoors, it’s a celebration in support of organizations that empower young people to reach their full potential through yoga, nutrition, environmental projects and service. Aside from offering the Camp Yoga Rock The Park Kids Yoga Class, Yoga Rocks The Park supports the Sean O’Shea Foundation who is committed to bringing yoga programs to public, private and charter schools, rehab centers, juvenile court appointed schools, pregnant teen programs, and hospitals. Their goal is to empower youth through yoga, nutrition and optimistic teachings that help to develop life skills that can enable youth to take responsibility for their life, develop respect for themselves and others, and have confidence in their own potential.
The second beneficiary of this event is the global organization, Kids for Peace (that happens to be headquartered locally in San Diego), on a mission to cultivate every child’s innate ability to foster peace through cross-cultural experiences and hands-on arts, service and environmental projects. Guided by the mission of Kids for Peace, our programs emphasize youth leadership, cross-cultural experiences, arts, service and caring for our earth.
“It is so heartwarming when I find organizations spreading a similar mission as the Sean O’Shea Foundation; wellness and the joy for life! We are proud to partner with “Yoga Rocks the Park” in San Diego this summer and we look forward to meeting new friends from the yoga community. We are pleased to be sharing our mission and work with the community and hope many of you join the Sean O’Shea Foundation, recently voted the Top Rated 2013 Nonprofit,” commented Gloria O’Shea, Sean O’Shea Foundation Founder and Executive Director.
The September 8th event will be a free day for the entire community and will be presented by Yoga Six.
