Putting the om in P-om-ona

I’m writing with a request, an invitation, and an announcement. Here goes…

The Request: I’m on the lookout for a place in Pomona to offer kids yoga. Ideally, some kind business or gallery owner would welcome little yogis once per week for some om-a-liscious play time. At a minimum, we would need a spacious floor and…well…that’s about it. Any ideas?

The Invitation: Free kids yoga classes on Thursday, December 18 from 4:00 – 5:00 PM and Sunday, January 4 from 1:00 – 2:00 PM. Kids ages 6 and older are invited to attend; parents welcomed to stay and play. The sessions will take place at the Om Sweet Om Pilates & Yoga Studio (204 N. Yale, Claremont). The room can accommodate only 15 participants; reserve your spot by e-mailing me (just click on my screen name, Pride in Garfield Park).

The Announcement: Beginning January 8, 2009, I will offer a weekly kids yoga class at Om Sweet Om (204 N. Yale, Claremont). The class, which will meet Thursdays from 4:00 – 5:00 PM, will be open to kiddos age 6 and older. Cost: $10/child ($6 per class additional for parent participants).

Perhaps there are other yoga teachers in Pomona who would be interested in offering an adult yoga class?
How great would it be if we could get something going in one of the spaces downtown? I’d love to hear your ideas for how we can make this happen.

6 and older? but the 5 and younger crowd loves yoga too! (my daughter is 3 1/2) -- perhaps offer an additional class for the wigglier little ones?

I'd love to be able to do a class for the 3 - 5 year olds and another for 6 and older. My early intel suggested there is more of a demand for 6 and older, so I figured I'd start there. That said, if we can find the space, I'll make the time for classes for the two age groups. Any ideas?

Wigglier is a fabulous adjective, by the way. I'm going to try to work it into conversation today :)
