Just as we were beginning to settle into our bodies yesterday morning, a toddler threw up all over her momma, the mat, and the floor. It was beautiful to see how everyone jumped in— finding the swifter in the bathroom, pulling out disinfecting wipes from a backpack, laying blankets down over the now clean-but-wet floor 🧘♀️ How do we meet the present moment? That’s the yoga— whether it’s finding mental and physical stillness in a challenging pose that makes us want to jump out of our skin, or flowing with it when the asana turns into cleanup time. Join me in class this week or drop off your kiddos, and we’ll meet whatever comes with grace and breath. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

I’m pretty confident that all of life’s challenges can be worked out on the mat or the cushion. It’s saturday and I didn’t wanna get out of bed, but I know that when I come to the mat to quiet my mind for yoga and meditation I find my peaceful center that can withstand any of life’s upheavals. Thank you @karenvoski for a great class today! #saturdayvibes#soulplayyoga#cometothemat#practice#quietthemind#mindfulnesscoach
Meet Our SoulPlay Spa Team! With our recent expansion, not only do we have space for more yoga classes and private sessions, we're also able to offer additional wellness treatments like massage, skincare, reiki and more! This week we sat down with Raul (@baliantaksu), who provides acupuncture and herbal medicine at SoulPlay's Spa - read excerpts below and check out the whole thing on the blog!
On how he got into acupuncture and Eastern medicine: "Leaving for college at UCLA, his life took a twist when his martial arts team got the opportunity to train at Beijing Sports University one summer. When Raul hurt his knee and a local trainer applied herb patches, he wasn’t sure exactly what to make of it. But after all the pain was gone by the following morning, his interest in Eastern medicine was sparked and a lifelong passion for helping others with these ancient techniques began."
On studying and working abroad in South Korea: “I was working and studying in Seoul at the best Eastern medical school in the world, which was amazing. They have a nineteen story hospital with fully-equipped emergency rooms filled with all kinds of Western diagnostic machines, but the main core of treatment is Eastern medical techniques."

Our next Teacher Training dates have been announced! This isn't just for people who want to become yoga teachers - if you've been thinking about jumping in and deepening your practice while exploring your truest self, this training is for you. Weekend format to work around your schedule. Get more info on our site or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Meet Marcella, who began her fitness journey as a trainer and bodybuilder and has been practicing yoga for over twenty years. We're lucky enough to be the only studio where she teaches public classes in Los Angeles 🙏 Come in for Yoga Basics with her every Wednesday at 6:30!⠀ _____________________________
On how yoga helped her deal with the loss of her father: "When I first heard that my father died, I remember holding my breath and not really moving. My yoga practice helped me be in touch with my pain and helped me not stay stuck in the fear of feeling the amount of pain I had. Moving in the practice helped a natural movement occur and I could feel the pain moving - it didn’t make it go away, on the contrary it made it more present. But I could relate to it and move with it and make peace with it.”⠀
On why she teaches: “My teaching is more about how movement informs the movement of your life. How putting your foot in this position changes how you speak to your partner or how a certain pose might affect your whole day. It’s all connected, and that’s my passion.”⠀
On how yoga has changed for her over the years: “I’m amazed how the practice and system of yoga can meet you at any stage - I’m continually in awe of this discipline that’s so ancient and has been transmitted by so many different teachers can keep you on your toes whether you’re in your teens or in your 90s. There’s a place for every age to meet that connection to what’s happening in the moment, and I think that is what is so incredible about this practice."⠀

When I asked the kids at my camp what their favorite thing of the day was many said the things I would expect.. “The games.. the yoga..the slime.. going to the movies.. “ But this beaming little girl raised her hand and said “My favorite part of the day was when we did our morning meditation and you talked to us about self-love.” My heart is full for sure. #teachlove#summercamp2018#mindfulkids#soulplayyoga#selflove

Last month I had the pleasure of teaching yoga to a group of 12 vibrant young ladies at @mindful_la’s Mindful Kids summer camp. We learned about the importance of working with the breath, delved into topics like generosity and compassion, and moved our bodies 🤸🏽♀️ July camp is happening next week, and there are still a few spots left!

Back to knowing what day it is... I want to give a HUGE thank you to @soulplay.retreats and @nattasticyoga for putting together a week full of yoga, meditation, adventures, and insanely delicious, healthy foods with the most beautiful and inspiring souls. From strangers to family in 1 week, I couldn't have asked for more. Holding on to all of this peace and brain space! SO filled with love! Missing my electricity free life, wild nature sounds, and the amazing staff at @haramarasayulita 🇲🇽💛✨ #tilnexttime#soulplayretreats
Because it's never too early to find your breath! Send your little ones to our kids yoga classes every Tuesday with @youngwarrioryoga!
I didn’t know my heart would be so filled after spending a week with these little gems at my Mindful Kids Summer Camp. We were all sad to leave each other today knowing that we had shared alot, learned alot, laughed alot and were so present with each other all week. I leave this amazing group of kids knowing that they have a few extra Mindfulness tools in their pocket to carry with them through their lives and hopefully a few extra friends as well! ✨✨✨✨✨✨✨ Next camp sessions July 16-20 and August 6-10th. #teachlove#summercamp#culvercity#mindfulkids#soulplayyoga#bepresent#kidscamp#summer2018
Mindful Kids Summer Camp is so much more than just Mindfulness & Yoga... It’s waterplay, making new friends, going on adventures, field trips, claymaking, sharing with each other, having unconditional love of ourselves and learning how to breath through the strong emotions we encounter in life. It’s a different kind of summer camp because my intention each day is to be fully present with these kids, have fun , teach them how to love themselves and cultivate self worth. ✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨ This week is sold out! July spots are filling fast for week of July 16-20th and we are about to announce August camp dates! Message me for details. #mindfulkids#losangeles#summercamp#kidscamp#summer2018#soulplayyoga#culvercity#teachlove#mindfulgirls
