Sound Meditation:New Monthly Class!

Dear Spectra Community,

Last night marked the inaugural Sound Meditation class led solely by Christian Reid. The class was maxed out the day before and we had people on the waiting list!

I was one of the lucky students and I have to say that it was such a beautiful, full-sensory experience as I had never experienced a sound bath at this level before. Laying on the floor and allowing my body to feel the vibrations of the various instruments allowed me to relax, open up to being with myself in peace, and provided the most epic sleep and vivid dreams possible. 

Due to such a high demand, Christian's Sound Meditation will be offered on the 3rd Sundays of each month starting on March 19th from 6:45-8:00 pm.

Pre-registration is highly recommended. Cost $10 Spectra Members & $15 Non-Members

See you on the mat,

New Changes in Spring

As winter melts away, new spring changes slowly bud and grow. March brings new additions for community bonding and changes to the Spectra class schedule. First off, I am happy to announce the Spectra Run Club starting Saturday March 19! This club will meet each Saturday at 7 am in the parking lot with Coach Kevin and Amanda. They will provide the training tools necessary to help anyone, whether beginner to advanced, a successful career in running. The first race the club will train for is the World Famous Mud Run at Camp Pendleton.

Secondly, over the next three months, I will be add more classes to the schedule based upon the feedback that I have received from the students. See below for the complete list of changes.

Spring is the time for beginnings, to come out of hibernation and try something new. I hope that you all will give a different yoga class try or take a TRX or meditation class. Take yourself out of your comfort zone and see how you can grow from new experiences. Maybe even join us for a 7 am run on a Saturday morning!

Love is in the Air!

February is a celebratory month of love and honor. We pay homage to our nations' past Presidents, remember Black History, and celebrate the love we have for each other.

On behalf of all the teachers and staff at Spectra Yoga, I would like to express our utmost LOVE and gratitude for YOU! Our classes are only successful because of the amazing students that we have at the studio. Through each class taught and interaction at the front desk, we strive to provide you the best that we can give. We hope that you feel welcome and cared for when you walk through the front doors.

If you want to give back to the teachers and staff, you can do so by leaving feedback, a love note, a tip, and/or a small token of gratitude in your teacher's metal mailbox underneath his/her picture in the hallway. The teachers and staff always appreciate hearing from you. 

May you feel loved and cherished by all around you!

A Moment to Pause

Seasons Greetings Friends and Family!

Thank you to all who attended the Grand Opening Celebration! The turn out was enormous and I am so humbled and honored to receive your support. 

Over the course of the night, I took a moment pause, observe the festivities, and reflect. The energy of the studio space was vibrant and full of love. In this moment looking at familiar and new faces, I was overwhelmed with happiness. Each and everyone of you plays a role in the building of this studio's existence. And for that, I am grateful. I hope that you all had a good time mingling, eating and celebrating with the wonderful Spectra community. It really takes a village to raise a child and there is no way that Spectra Yoga could have been born without my wonderful staff, instructors, students, construction crew, and mostly my family. 

For this holiday season, my wish for everyone is to take a moment to also pause to reflect on the amazing role we play in each other's lives. Whether big or small, all of our interactions help us to grow, learn, evolve, and feel loved. So spread this beautiful love and have a Merry Holiday!

With Love,
