Sunday, September 8th at Stagecoach Park, Carlsbad, California


Encinitas, CA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 08/31/2013 --Yoga Rocks the Park, presented by Natural Fitness, a nationally-renowned weekly, outdoor live music, yoga and wellness celebration, is proud to announce that its San Diego event series will offer a free-of-charge day of yoga and live music in the park on Sunday, September 8, 2013, which will be presented by Yoga Six.

The September 8th event is part of a summer long series, celebrating it's first season in San Diego, with events held on Sundays mornings at Stagecoach Park, providing yoga and live music events for the whole family.

"We are thrilled with the success of our first year in San Diego where we have been welcoming 100 yogis and their families each Sunday to the park to celebrate our beautiful community through yoga and music," says Event Director, Traci Wallace. "We are so excited and grateful to be partnering with Yoga Six for our September 8th Finale' event to provide an atmosphere of community and well-being with even more people. It should be a really fun day for everyone!"

Yoga Rocks the Park was born out of one event that started in Denver, Colorado five years ago and has expanded it's presence into 15 cities across the U.S. including San Diego, St. Louis, San Francisco, Portland and Chicago, each event locally managed and supported by their local community as well as local and national sponsors.

Each weekly event includes a 75-minute, all-levels yoga class led by one of San Diego's top yoga instructors and favorite musicians. The event also includes Camp Yoga Rocks the Park, a kids’ yoga camp to complement adult classes, designed for children aged 3-10 hosted by Next Generation Yoga. The event, which would normally cost $12 in advance / $15 at the park, is free for all yogis and their friends and families on September 8th, thanks to a generous sponsorship by Yoga Six.

This free yoga class will be led by Yoga Six's own Katie Brauer, a world-renowned yoga teacher and inspirational speaker with music from Mental Physix, one of Southern California's top DJ duo's consisting of Crisanto Santa Ana (Santosha) & Dru Ali (Hyphen-Select).

"Yoga has bought so much value to my life, it's my personal mission to reach and share the gift of yoga with as many people as possible. I'm grateful to have landed in a studio like Yoga Six whose values align with my own. Yoga Six's commitment to making yoga accessible and supporting students in living an empowered life now inspires me. It's an honor to be a part of bringing community together outdoors to practice and experience yoga at Yoga Rocks the Park." - says Katie Brauer, Director of Yoga Programming at Yoga Six and the event's featured teacher.
