Our first official post-class, sweaty, smiley group photo in our Eastlake studio!!!! 🥲🥲🥰

It’s been a great week, a wild month and a celebration each day!!!

THANK YOU to everyone that has showed up for classes, you have truly made all the hard work that has been going into this new studio worth it!
Your energy, your smiles, your kind words and most of all, your trust and confidence in us to provide you with the best experience in your wellness practice, means everything.

We are not surprised we have had so many if you join us but we are impressed to see that in the first 3 days of opening our doors, we’ve already had so many students; not that we’re competing with ourselves 😉😜, but we may beat our visit numbers from our Otay Location on our first week 😂🙌🏼.

This group here came to Cary’s Hot Pilates Fusion and left dripping, smiling and happy. What else can we ask for?

Today we have a studio photo shoot at 1 pm if you’d like to join us, it’s our fave from taking shots for our website and social media of our new rooms, if you want to be a part of this moment and help us capture the essence of who we are, show up in your workout clothes, preferably solid and neutral colors, and join the fun for about an hour.

We have plenty of classes left in Eastlake this week and of course, plenty in Otay, so register now and join us.

Don’t forget Saturday July 13 at 11 am, Ana will lead a Rocket Yoga class I partnership with for a special surprise, space is limited so sign up now! Only a few spots left.

Saturday afternoon from 4 to 7 pm, it’s our Grand Opening Party in Eastlake and our Ribbon Cutting will be held at 4:30 pm so, join us for this very special occasion. You can RSVP online, app or just let us know.

Have an amazing day, come visit our new location, tell your friends to visit and don’t forget our Founding Members Deal ends this weekend: $139 a month for life for our Eastlake location members. There’s no better deal out there so take advantage now!
See you in class, Namaste.

We love seeing so many of our students and so many new faces as well, gather in a space where we feel safe, happy and well. We love offering these free classes to our community because we get to share our passions and the reason why we do what we do so more of you can see what we have to offer.

We hope you enjoyed doing a little shopping after class, getting the new colors of the season from the store, you know they always know what’s up.

Happy Monday!!!!
Time to rise, shine, achieve, grow, beat the odds and smile! 💪🏼🔥

What’s your plan for this holiday ~week~? Because it seems like vacations are at a max this week, with this beautiful weather, sun, beach, pool, exotic destinations… it’s time to have some fun!!!

It’s also a great week to find time for YOU. If you’re off this week or have a few days out of the eeek to just do the things you enjoy, we encourage you to come visit us for classes and events.

There’s nothing better than feeling good about ourselves after we do something that fills us with good energy, with restorative, powerful, self-loving energy. And that’s exactly what our classes do.
We are open all week except Thursday, but we are offering our 6 am Sunrise Heated Vinyasa class for everyone that wants to kick off the holiday in the best way, with body movement, breath awareness and some detoxing sweat. Register before class is full , a couple of spots left.

The rest of the week we have our regular schedule, but we do have staff on vacation this week so check the app or website for our full schedule in case some classes are cancelled or changes their format. Class cancellations are always our last resort, that just means there’s absolutely noone at all that could come sub, and that’s ok, we have over 130 classes a week so we know you’ll find something else that works for you!!! Staff needs time for themselves as well to be with family, friends and to find their own self-care practices 🩷.

Book your classes now for Eastlake as well, to all our community, you should be able to book for classes that start Monday July 8, and for everyone else, our booking window opens 60 days in advance so you can book ahead of time.

This 6 am crowd crushed it with and started their day off right! How will you brush your goals today? Let us know, we’d love to hear!!

Have an amazing day everyone, drink lots of water, use sunscreen and smile lots! Namaste.

You’ve heard of VinYin, a combination of Vinyasa followed by Yin poses, but we’ve taken it to another level 😜… our VinYin is Vino and Yin. A fusion of relaxation and mind body connection through Yin Yoga poses and breath work with a little side of Happy Hour on a Friday night 😁.

Miss Esperanza .echeverria.50 and the lovely Friday evening crowd wanted to stay longer than the hour for class and enjoy time together bonding, getting to know each other, and yeah, why not, having drinks and bites together.

Last night we had our first VinYin where some students brought drinks, cheese boards, veggies, and enjoyed their afternoon practicing self care.

Having a good time with a glass of wine or two after class does not make it less of a wellness and self-care practice; self-care is doing things that make you happy and make you feel good, at peace and re-energized. You can have your yoga and your wine too!

Stay tuned for more VinYin nights coming up, seems like we started a new fun event that students what more of!!!

Thank you Espe and Anabel for the goodies and for a great class!

This is NAMASTE.
This is our WHY.
COMMUNITY.
JOY.
GOOD TIMES.
HAPPINESS.
FRIENDSHIPS.

WELLNESS.


Namaste.

🎵Sometimes you wanna go
Where everybody knows your name
And they’re always glad you came
You wanna be where you can see (ah-ah)
Our troubles are all the same (ah-ah)
You wanna be where everybody knows your name🎶🎶

Yeah, you know what song that is 😉, if not, ask someone older than you, they’ll tell ya 😜.

This photo made us think of it because we are always glad you’re here, we always want to make you feel amazing and forget your troubles, but also, we are family and we work together to give every person that walks through our doors the best experience.

Here’s all except 2 of our Front Desk Team ladies and we want you all to get to know them because they will be in both locations greeting you, taking care of your class needs, walking you into class, giving your kiddos treats, and most important, giving you that amazing experience.

You maybe haven’t met some of them yet but as days get closer to our Grand Opening of Eastlake, you’ll see more of them at our Otay desk working hard at learning all the things that come with the job to be ready to open the new studio.

Many people think our desk job is a “fun little job”… yes it’s fun but it’s not just a little job, it’s a job that requires a lot of attention to detail, no fear of public speaking, great personal skills to manage difficult situations, multitasking to the max, and most of all, passion to do what’s right by others and self-discipline to take care of a business that’s not just a business, it’s a sanctuary for thousands of people.
They do so much in front and behind the scenes, they make many things you see, possible.
It is no small task and we take time to select each person who will take on this job because they are a representation of Namaste Fitness’ values, goals and ethnics.

We’ll introduce one by one as the days go by but please give them a smile, a kind word and know they are here to help you a huge your wellness goals.

We love you ladies!
Namaste.

Three and a half Front Desk ladies 🩷💕.

Our staff is already all smiles, but when we have special visitors, the smiles get bigger 😃.

Our team is growing and as it is, we have more hands to tend to our students, more arms to hug our littlest clients, more mouths to share kind words, more hearts to give to those who need us.

Miss Paola .martineza , Miss Anabel and Miss Mirsha are happy to share the desk duties with Miss Cara (she’s the one making the rules right now though 😜) because how can you say no to this cutie.

We know it’s summer time and kiddos are out of school, so we have Childcare for kitties as young as 6 weeks up to 12 years old. Take advantage of this amenity and enjoy an hour or two of me-time and self-care.

Our Eastlake location will also offer Childcare services for most of our classes, as always, our 6 and 7 am classes do not offer childcare as well as any classes after 7 pm.

Our studio is meant for the entire family, come join and be part of our family too. Namaste.

06/18/2024


Today, meet Mirsha Lora ♥️

Mirsha is studying Psychology and was born and raised in Tijuana/ San Diego.

She grew up very disciplined, started swimming at 6 years old and continued her athletic career until her third semester at biola university.
She loves any type of fitness; some of her goals are doing a half marathon, a triathlon and becoming any sort of fitness instructor!! (Hope we see her in action soon!)
Another passion of hers is coffee! Her dream is to open her own coffee shop one day and implement any sort of wellness guide along with it.

Mirsha has been a student at Namaste Fitness for a bit and like many of our current team members, she took the next step to become part of the Namaste Fitness staff.

She has had plenty of experience in retail, sales and customer service and we are very excited to have her be part of our family at the Front Desk and Childcare, and possibly, as part of our teaching staff as well!

You may catch Mirsha around the Otay studio now, but be ready to see her in our Eastlake location very soon!

Excited for new stage in our journey, we had been manifesting our second location for a few years now and every day now takes us closer to a dream becoming reality. Thank you for following along, Namaste.

Friiiiiiiiiday!
The work week is over and of course we didn’t let the day go by without a celebration! 🥳🎉 (you know how we do 😜).

Today we celebrated Isabel’s birthday as well as Teacher Training graduations, trips to Europe, new projects, and EVERYTHING our students’ hearts desired to celebrate!!!!!

We don’t need an excuse to find joy, celebration and fun in our daily lives. There’s no time to waste sitting down and waiting for a “special” day to do, say or make things happen, every single day has many reasons to have a celebratory spirit and add sparkle to our lives.

We continue with more birthday parties (contact us for private parties), with celebrations (Father’s Day this Sunday), with making fun and special memories for our students and our community.

Thank you Linda for organizing a fun Neon Party today and starting off the weekend with a good sweat, great vibes and lots of love.

We’ll see you this weekend for more fun times, don’t forget Donuts for Dads (and everyone else 🤫) and some bubbles to wash them down 😉. Bring the daddys and zaddys in your life for a class or two this Sunday and give them a well-deserved day of self-care with a treat at the end 💙.

Happy weekend, see you in class. Namaste.

Women CRUSHING it Wednesday!!!!

Look at all these Queens wearing their crowns so high!!

Last night our nighttime Yoga Sculpt was on fire, and not just because of the moves, but because the students brought their best energy for Miss Pam’s birthday night .yogi

If you’re an “afternooner” you know our rooms are filled with good vibes and wonderful energy. We love seeing your smiling faces coming in for your self-care time after a day at work or after you finished your other responsibilities at home, we are always ready to have you in class and make it the best hour of the day.

We have a wide variety of afternoon classes so you can take one, two or even three at a time, some heated, some not heated and some not heated but they make you feel like you’re still in a hot room 🔥 because you put in the werrrrrk.
So many opportunities for you to have “me-time” every day of the week.

Happy Birthday Pam, thank you for all you do for us, for taking care of one million and one things every day and for always giving us your biggest smile and your best energy.

We’ve had a few private parties and birthday celebrations lately, we love hosting you and your loved ones in a wellness-inspired party so think of us for your next important date ♥️.

See you in class, Namaste.

The 2024 Graduates from our 200 Hr Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training are officially done and ready to go into the world and teach Yoga!!! ✨🎉🎊

We are so proud of these women because today marks the end of a learning journey and the beginning of a life-long commitment to living a more mindful and intentional life.

Dawn, Eva, Rosa, Liliana and Rosa are the newest Chula Vista Yoga Teachers that you may see leading your next class 😉.

We offer Teacher Trainings in our studio because we feel a responsibility to help those who seek a transformative experience for deeper self-understanding, self-discovery and the opportunity to take a leap into sharing their passions and knowledge with others. We believe that in order to make a positive change in the world we live in, we need to have loving, caring, compassionate, kind and dedicated humans that can create that change… that’s where our trainees come in. Yoga Teacher Trainings are offered everywhere and anywhere all the time, but we pride ourselves in offering trainings that focus on different aspects of the human condition -physical, intellectual, emotional and spiritual- and to provide tools to strengthen, grow and develop these areas through adequate education plans, qualified instructors and self-study guidance.

By taking Namaste Fitness Teacher trainings, even though you are not guaranteed a job once you graduate, you do get the benefit to be first in line 😉 because you’re not just a student, you become family. We’re so lucky to have amazing humans coming to us… most of our teachers that you know and love, have graduated from our trainings 🥰.
If you’re ready for the journey, sign up now, we have Yoga Walls in July, Yoga Sculpt in August, Yin in October and our 2025 Vinyasa Training is scheduled for March next year.

Thank graduates for trusting us with such a beautiful life changing journey, thank you for choosing us and being wonderful representatives of our studio’s values.
Thank you to all the teachers that were part of this training, to offer the best, we need a village.

Congratulations ladies, go be the change in the world. Namaste.

Smiles, breath, strength, more smiles, passion, acceptance, intention, love, support, smiles again and lots of good energy ✨.
All the things we got to enjoy, build, release, create and share in the 2 hours we spent together as one community.

At Namaste Fitness we’ve had 6 years of wonderful experiences, beautiful moments, incredible friendships created and so much magic and healing through wellness practices.
Today was no exception and we added another core memory to our journey.

If you haven’t visited us, if you’re hesitant about starting a new journey, if you’ve never experienced a yoga or a fitness group class and sounds intimidating, or if you’ve given the whole wellness thing a try and you feel it’s just not your thing… we invite you, even challenge you to come take one class with us and see if you change your mind 😉.

We have about 30 amazing teachers, all different styles and personalities to suit everyone and after today, who knows, we may be added a few more 😍, so we feel confident enough to say, you’ll find something you can love.

As of July, we will have another opportunity to share our mission with the Chula Vista community and nearby by neighborhoods as we open our second location in the Shops at San Miguel Ranch, so, another space coming close to you.

Graduation Day is tomorrow at 1 pm, if you’d like to join us in celebrating these ladies for their amazing accomplishment, we will see you in studio.

Thank you to everyone that showed up and supported our ladies today, Namaste.

200 Hour Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training Finals are done!!!
(Part 1)

Can you see the love, passion and amazing energy that went into these classes?!? 😍

Our amazing ladies Dawn , Eva , Liliana , Rosa and Rosa Gonzalez did a beautiful job today.
Combined they led 60 people through 2 wonderful Heated Vinyasa clases and we couldn’t be more proud of them.

We are grateful as always for the immense support our students, teachers and staff have given these women throughout their training journey and even more so today on their big day.

We are happy to see 5 more Yoga Teachers going out into the world with the rooms necessary to make a difference in others’ lives for a better, happier, healthier world.
