Thank you for your anniversary message.
As the records indicate, except for the weeks I travel, I attend many of your varied yoga classes.
I have found your teachers consistently professional and enthusiastic, the classes fun and energizing.
So, thank you...I have thoroughly enjoyed the first year of the LJYC and look forward to 2011!
Dear La Jolla Yoga Center Team,
Thank you for all you have done for me!! LJYC is the most beautiful, peaceful place. I truly enjoy coming to this calming atmosphere as much as I can. As you all know sometimes I come 5 day a week!
Often times people, friends will say to me you look so great! what do you do to have that peaceful, vibrant, happy look and great body? I always say yoga! The kula at LJYC is unique and special. I always feel like I am going to the bar Cheers, where everyone is so kind and I have lots of beautiful, genuine friends.
"This absolutely beautiful studio is welcoming and warm with touches that Yogis appreciate. Jeanie really thought about the students and wanted to create a space that was more than just place to go and exercise. There’s a wide range of approaches to yoga, the schedule is full all day, level 1 or 3. The very qualified teachers are in full control of the postures and the class. Located not far from 'The Cove,' in Southern California. Drop in anytime to LJYC."
"I am new to yoga and I have to tell you what a great experience it has been to come to LJYC several times a week. The caliber of people that work here is outstanding. They are bright and friendly, and most importantly, knowledgeable. They all posess their own teaching style and demonstrate a deep understanding of the physical and spiritual aspects of the practice and 'art' of yoga."
"I started with your True Beginner classes...[The instructor] is very skilled at describing the poses and why we should be doing them in the precise way she demonstrates them. She gives each student individual instruction and genuinely cares about her students unique issues or difficulties (as we all develop with age, I'm afraid) and is clearly passionate about what she does. I have advanced to the Anusara 1/2 as a result, and am enjoying the challenge as well as the strength I have gained."
"La Jolla Yoga Center is the yoga studio for everyone! Aside from being brand new and gorgeous, the studio is unique in its design for the sole purpose of practicing yoga and is immaculately maintained. What truly sets it apart, however, is the menu of classes offered and the variety of instructors.
"In addition to offering over 90 classes per week, yoga classes are available in Ashtanga, Anusara (Maral Hadidi taught me gentle focus), Vinyasa, Iyengar (Ann West keeps my alignment precise), Hatha, Acro, Yin and Svaroopa. Plus, there are specialized classes for Tai Chi Qi Gong, prenatal mothers-to-be, new mothers, surfers, golfers, those recovering from cancer and those who want to heal their bodies. All of this is provided through an experienced and admired staff of 40 professional instructors who are well known throughout the yoga community, not only in La Jolla and San Diego, but throughout southern California.
"We are so lucky to have Jeanie Carlstead and this elegant new studio in our LJ village!"
"I have been taking Prenatal Vinyasa on Tuesday evenings and it's wonderful! I hope to continue throughout my pregnancy. I can feel that it keeps me strong and flexible. Thank you!"
"Prior to joining La Jolla Yoga Center, I had only practiced Hatha Yoga. Although the studio has only for a short time, I've already tried Vinyasa Mixed, Anusara-Inspired Mixed, Iyengar, Surfers/Athletes Flow, Gentle Healing, Deep Healing, Meditation class, and Yoga for a Healthy Back. With so many classes offered every day, I am able to take two classes back-to-back. The instructors are helpful and provide modifications to each pose, so it's not intimidating if you are not at the level of the person next to you. The studio is absolutely beautiful. There is a kitchen area to have tea after class and socialize with yoga teachers and students. It's such a positive place with great energy and I am grateful to be able to expand my practice in this peaceful environment."
"The center is absolutely magnificent. From the beautiful layout and design to the gracious teachers and staff, the La Jolla Yoga Center provides a peaceful, yet motivating environment for everyone. There is absolutely a class for every person, whether one is trying yoga for the very first time or extremely advanced. A lot of studios can seem overpowering at first, but this center is truly welcoming and the classes leave you feeling revitalized on every level. Try a class....you will definitely be pleasantly surprised!"
"Ann West's Iyengar and Yoga for a Healthy Back classes have changed my life. I have had scoliosis since I was a teenager and have had back pain every day. Since taking Ann's class, my spine has been stretched and strengthened and I have finally received relief from my low back pain. Ann's classes are thought out carefully and she knows each student and their health issues. In addition to observing the level of experience and making modifications, she also tells us why it is important to do each pose and the health benefits we will receive from them. I recommend Ann's classes to all yoga levels. She is amazing."
