SanGaMa- theTrivalley Malayali (Kerala) group!

Due to our growth over the years, we have folks from all over tri-valley and hence we recently renamed our group to “SanGaMa” to mean gathering of Malayali community in the trivalley area. Check out our new website at . If you have roots in Kerala and are living in Dublin, Pleasanton, San Ramon, Danville or planning to move here, you will find the group helpful.

What is SanGaMa ?
Started in late 2009, this a  friendly group started for the  benefit of Malayalis living in San Francisco East Bay locations like   San Ramon, Dublin, Danville and Pleasanton … We celebrate  festivals  of Kerala like Onam,Vishu, Christmas/New Year  etc…This also functions as a forum for networking with other Malayali  (Kerala) families in the area.    We have periodic  get-togethers for our main events or we go for short-trips in the bay area or we just hang out with one another occasionally! If you know of  other families with roots in Kerala in the neighborhood who might be interested, please spread the word.

Kids Yoga@ Pleasanton

Kids Yoga

Application Form
Regardless of our age or stage, yoga meets us where we’re at. For children, Yoga can help develop their flexibility, strength, coordination, and body awareness. Their concentration can improve along with their ability to relax and feel calm, which helps them to cope with the conflict and stress of an increasingly hectic world.
More than being just great exercise, Yoga is a way of life that teaches Kids the ancient system of practice which focuses postures/asanas along with healthy food styles for the body, breathing & relaxation techniques for the mind, concentration exercises for the intellect and meditation for the soul. It encourages kids to play, connect more deeply with their inner self, and develop a receptive relationship to the natural world around them. It encourages self-esteem and body awareness, and fosters cooperation and compassion, instead of competition.

Yoga helps our little ones to explore the ethics of “Yamas” (healthy, loving attitudes & values) with teenagers learning to apply Yoga’s ancient wisdom to modern-day life challenges. Teaches awareness in decision-making and choices where an internal compass could be challenged or compromised.

Through Yoga, children can discover how unique, worthy, and complete they are. They learn to care for their bodies with Yoga when they are young, and start developing healthy habits, which will serve them all lifelong.

Want to try some Yoga classes for your kids? Universal Peace Foundation of NA (UPFNA) is now offering ongoing Kids yoga classes on Sundays for 4-12 year olds.

New batch starts from October
4430 Willow Rd, Suite K
Pleasanton, CA 94588
