It is not uncommon to see yoga as a top ranking activity on many people's to-do lists. Yoga is something that people say they will do, "eventually," "another day," or "when they are back in shape." What these very capable individuals do not realize is that now is the time to do yoga. Waiting only decreases your chances of being physically able to participate in the future. People make many excuses to do yoga, but "the best excuse not to go to yoga is that you just got back" (lululemon athletica).
Living in Santa Barbara, we are extremely fortunate to have a plethora of different types of yoga available, alongside countless studios and teachers that provide amazing services and classes. The intent of this article is not to recommend any particular studio or type of yoga, but rather to educate you, a Santa Barbara local who may have yoga on your "to-do" list. Our goal is to move yoga from your "to-do" list to your "tasks completed" list, and encourage you to integrate yoga into your weekly routine. Ray Kolbe who produces Yoga Santa Barbara Style, a local TV show on channel 17 explains that, "Yoga provides a method for each person to develop themselves physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Yoga is a way of living. It is a recipe for a healthful, happy, fulfilling life, helping people to better themselves as well as providing a better community for others."

In 2001, a small daycare opened in Ontario, California, which was co-owned by Krista Davis-Morelos. In 2003, Little Promises Playhouse Daycare moved to the Santa Barbara area. Krista's facility boasts a healthy and loving environment for children with a focus on the development of a child's individual learning program. However, what makes Little Promises a unique facility is its attention to physical fitness.
For 30 minutes every Wednesday, the children of Little Promises Playhouse Daycare take part in yoga classes, where according to Krista, they "do actual yoga poses and rally around specific animals. [For example,] we may say they are crawling under a rock and they would do downward dog [a yoga pose]. We incorporate it into an animal so that it is entertaining for them."
As intimate as dinner and a dozen roses might be, it's slightly overdone. If you want to make this V-day a real memory, why not go on a Valentines day adventure? Make this February 14th a dirty one-- one that will make your sweetheart sweat and get em' a little wet...That's right, take them on a hike to Seven Falls!
Refreshing breezes, aromatic wild flowers, captivating views, romantic atmosphere and a great work out are only a few of the things you'll find on the hike to Seven Falls in the Santa Barbara mountains. If you are looking for an active Valentine's Day get away, this is it.
The hike begins easily with a paved path that starts at the end of Tunnel Road and winds up the mountain. Eventually, it leads you to a dirt road, which then leads you to the creek bed.
From here, there is the option to follow some winding paths that go alongside the creek, or you can simply follow the creek bed-- for those who are up to the challenge. In the late afternoon, this route is nearly empty and makes for a nice, intimate setting. Be warned that it is fairly demanding at times, but that's part of the fun.
