LA Yoga Health Festival with Global Mala

CSM_updog-downdog-yoga.JPGIn celebration of Yoga Month, Los Angeles recently hosted the Yoga Health Festival with Global Mala as part of the festival’s ten-city tour.

This is our second year of attending the festival, and we found that there were quite a lot of changes from last year. For a start, the venue was changed from the LA convention center to the beautiful campus of Loyola Marymount University.

I didn’t attend the Global Mala portion, although I could watch from a distance the sea of beautiful Yoginis who were taking classes from instructors and listening to guest speakers.

I stayed around the Yoga Health Festival instead, where my son, a YogaHub Team member and I encountered a lovely Yoga instructor, Jules Hogan, who teaches yoga to children here in LA. She had set up a little area just for kids, with dance ribbons, hoola hoops, and music. During the two-day event, she also held classes for children. She was wonderful, energetic, funny, and so enchanting – not only towards the children but to the adults as well. She made up wonderful stories for each yoga pose that had us adults laughing and all the kids playing along. Since taking that class, my toddler is now walking his Down Dog and slithering like a snake in Cobra!

Jules incorporates fun and joy into the practice of yoga for children. If you and your child live in Los Angeles, I highly recommend that you check out her classes at Updog Downdog Yoga.

In the meantime, I will gather more information about her and other wonderful yoga teachers for our children. Stay tuned!

  3. Yes we are blessed to have these wonderful events. We all know that it takes a lot of effort for those who take the time to produce them.

    Please let us here at YogaHub know if you have other wonderful events in your city our country. We would be thrilled to post it in our calender of events as we did post a previous Blog on the Australia Expo.
