2019 Community Day Dates and Topics

2020 Community Day Dates and Topics

The community day workshop events cover a broad range of topics that you can choose to attend for half or full days. You can choose the first half, second half, or full day event ticket for any and all community days!

We now have a beautiful Optimal State Retreat Center in the foothills of the San Bernardino Mountains.  You will be connecting with nature all day long.  We provide Chai in the morning and kitchari for lunch.  It is a really special day together once a month.  The center is about 60 miles from Los Angeles, Irvine and Palm Springs.  See address below.

Please select the appropriate event ticket for the day and time(s) that you would like to attend. Each ticket is good for either in-person attendance or streaming live online, you decide what works for you! See ticket descriptions for more details on specific topics.

Please note that if you do not register at least 24 hours in advance, you may not receive the link in time for your chosen session.  We will try our best to get it to you if you register with less than 24 hours.  Either way, you will receive the recording of the session.

If you purchase a half day or a full day ticket you will receive the link for the streaming video approximately 24 hours before the event.  There will be two separate links, one for the morning session and one for the afternoon session. If you are unable to attend at the time of the event or would like to re-watch, you will also receive a link of the recording that is good for 30 days after the event. If you are attending in person, you will get the venue information with your registration confirmation.

The morning session of the Community Day will start at 8:30am PST for streaming participants.  We ask that you get online around 8:00am  Once the program begins at 8:30am, it will be difficult for us to work with you individually, so please arrive in person and log in before 8:30am to be sure you are able to attend effectively and not interrupt the other participants.

For those people who are attending in-person the day will start at 8:00am PST.  We will have tea and snacks and take a few minutes to get to know one another before we begin the actual content of the day.

Lunch break will be from 12:30-1:45pm PST

We provide light and healthy meals at our Community Days.  In the morning there will be Chai, fruit and snacks.  The lunchtime meal will include kitchari (lentils and rice nicely spiced) and a cooked vegetable.  The food we provide is vegan and vegetarian.  You are welcome to contribute some food to the community also.  Some people choose to bring their own food if they have dietary restrictions.  There is a Starbucks and grocery store 10 minutes from the center.

The afternoon session will begin at 1:45pm PST for streaming participants and those attending in person.  The program begins promptly at 1:45 pm, it will be difficult for us to work with you individually after we start, so please log in or arrive before 1:45 pm to be sure you are able to attend effectively.

Our day together will end between 5:00- 5:30pm PST.

The email that the link will come from is yoga@theoptimalstate.com.  Please check your spam/ junk email if you do not receive the link.  Sometimes this happens when there is a large group of people receiving an email.  We will do our best to get it to you.  Then, if you have not received the link 12 hours before, please email us to check on the status and we will make sure that you receive it.

If you are streaming, you will receive the power point presentations about 24 hours before the event.  Please note that if you register late, both the power point presentations and link for streaming could be delayed.  Please register as soon as you know you will be attending.  Space is limited.

If you plan to watch the video replay, you will receive the link within 24 hours after the event.  The email that the link will come from is yoga@theoptimalstate.com.  Please check your spam/ junk email if you do not receive the link within 24 hours. If you do not have the link within 24 hours, then please email us to check on the status and we will make sure that you receive it.  Again, there will be two separate links, one for the morning session and one for the afternoon session.

Please note that the streaming links are different from the replay links.  If you register for a full day you will receive 2 links prior to the Community Day and 2 links following the Community Day.
