Yauvana Yoga & Float, San Diego’s first yoga and float studio, will host its grand opening on Jan. 13, 2018 from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. at 12411 Rancho Bernardo Road, San Diego, CA 92128. In celebration of its grand opening, Yauvana will offer four charity yoga classes throughout the month and donate 100% of proceeds to San Diego Senior Games, a nonprofit dedicated to encouraging senior adults to carry on vigorous lives.

Yauvana’s state-of-the-art 1,700 square foot facility will serve as a haven for relaxation, rejuvenation and repair. It will offer a unique two-step experience consisting of vigorous or relaxing yoga that transitions from your last yoga pose or Savasana, to the bliss of a float experience. Yauvana’s yoga classes are individually designed for a unique sensory experience that is characterized by the earth’s elements: earth, wind, water and fire flow classes. The practice of floating has been a known method of meditation for decades that allows individuals to unplug and relax while floating in 1,000 pounds of Epsom salt without gravity, noise, light and stress.

“After being diagnosed with fibromyalgia, I was seeking a natural alternative that would help me relax, repair my joints and heal my body,” said Yauvana Founder and Rancho Bernardo Resident Lilly Markowitz. “After practicing yoga for 13 years, I developed the concept of intertwining yoga and floating to achieve physical, spiritual and mental relaxation.”

Yauvana, defined as “youth” in Sanskrit, is dedicated to youth preservation while specializing in geriatric yoga. Yauvana’s seated yoga classes are tailored for seniors or Silver Sages and consist of simple yet empowering postures that can encourage physical activity, greater range of motion, community and calm through breath and meditation.

“Seniors who appear to be active may not be physically well or fit, so our goal is to help them develop and maintain high levels of physical activity and mental fitness,” said San Diego Senior Games Executive Director Kirsten Cummings. “We encourage senior athletes to start with repairing and restoring their bodies naturally in order to thrive in fitness and sports activities.”

In addition to the grand opening charity yoga classes, Yauvana will donate a portion of proceeds from the entire month of January to San Diego Senior Games.

The Yauvana Grand Opening is set for Jan. 13, 2018 from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. at 12411 Rancho Bernardo Road, San Diego, CA 92128.
