Vallejo Yoga Celebrates 10 Years of Peaceful Inspiration
“Vallejo Yoga is an oasis. The cheerful yellow walls are welcoming, and so are
all the instructors. I am a devoted fan!” – DT/Vallejo
Tucked away in a stately old building on Georgia Street in downtown Vallejo, Vallejo Yoga’s sun-yellow walls, high ceilings, and large windows provide clean, bright, and spacious surroundings where students can breathe, meditate, and relax.
In addition to the many welcoming classes offered at the Vallejo Yoga studio, owner/practitioner Dariece Warren is excited about three classes dedicated to moms, babies, and children.
Prenatal-Focused Gentle Yoga is held on Sundays between 5:15pm and 6:15pm. The class is designed to introduce women to Prenatal Yoga, meditation, and mindfulness practices that will help during pregnancy and beyond. Anyone can attend.
Mom and Baby Yoga, Mondays between 11:00-11:45am, provides a comfortable, supportive environment where moms can meet other women, enjoy special times with their babies, and experience the benefits of yoga without worrying about babies “bothering” others. The focus of these classes is on postnatal recovery and supporting the changes in the body after giving birth. Dads and other family caregivers are welcome. No prior yoga experience is necessary.
Positive Kids Yoga Series is a four-week class held on Wednes-days between 4:00pm and 5:00pm. This is a fun and interactive way to introduce children ages 4-11 to yoga, as postures, mindfulness, and art projects are explored. Pre-registration is necessary.
As part of Dariece’s desire to give back to the community where she has spent much of her life, Vallejo Yoga hosts Yoga for All, a donation-based Community Yoga Class held every Sunday from noon to 1pm. “The community yoga class is a gift to our community and is open to anyone at any level. Beginners are always welcome. Just show up!”
Dariece explains that these classes are a great way to introduce yoga to the general population. “This is a wonderful way to ex-plore the many facets of this gentle, healing modality. Yoga is not just about getting fit physically. It goes much deeper than that, and students often leave class elated and feeling relaxed, happier, and kinder, to themselves and others.”
