Yoga For Kids This Weekend: Imagine Fest and Beautiful Warriors

This weekend there are two local events happening that will welcome kids to yoga and related activities. I have a friend who’s been doing yoga since her childhood. That was not my experience. My mom did Jane Fonda’s aerobics workout. But you – you have a chance to give your kids the gift of yoga. It’s a new age, everyone.

Imagine Fest

Sunday, September 25, 2016, 12pm – 7pm
Paramount Ranch
Tickets online only $40 each, $25 for students with ID
($10 parking. A VIP ticket gets you special bathrooms, snacks, and cocktails!)

Imagine Fest is a “bohemian-styled yoga, art and live music festival” that will feature live music, and main stage yoga flow led by top instructors including Agoura Hills’ own Drorit Rudin of Agoura Power of Yoga. There will also be art installations, a vendor “village,” a guided meditation pavilion, food trucks, and special kids’ programming by sponsor Peaceful Ninjas.


Um, sorry. You got me at Peaceful Ninjas. That means you can go enjoy the yoga and meditation while your children are being led through activities that celebrate yoga mindfulness, health, nutrition, and connection to nature.


Proceeds from Imagine Fest will support Unlikely Heroes, a non-profit organization that provides safe home and restoration for victims of child sex slavery. Really, you have to go. It’s your civic duty. Students who purchase a ticket and simply attend the event will get SEVEN (7) community service hours! That’s nearly half their yearly requirement, and this experience is likely to change their lives.

Soulcycle Is Here! Calabasas and Westlake

Soulcycle has arrived in The Bubble – two new locations in Calabasas and Westlake Village allow you to “tap it back” and sweat your bottom off. Apparently I’ve been under a rock for a very long time, or at least successfully avoiding spin classes at all costs, because when Molly led me into my first […]

Santa Monica Pier Aquarium

The Santa Monica Pier Aquarium is a great place to exploring the pier, where you can spend a whole day. While your kids are still little and amazed by the world, while your underwater explorer still loves the mystery of the deep dark blue and its inhabitants, while your Earth-lover still wants to preserve our environment […]

Flashback Friday: Moving Day

Moving day is something you never forget. June 2010 My friend Sam is in town, trying to decide if he wants to move to Los Angeles. He’s lived in a lot of places, one of them New York, which he loves. LA is really, really different, amirite ladies? I moved to Los Angeles from Connecticut […]
