When corporations decide to revise the way they handle resources, Ace?an acronym for ?a creative environment??springs into action with suggestions for environmentally sustainable practices. Ace Wellness is a division of the company that helps businesses and communities develop fitness programs. One of these is Carlsbad Village Yoga and Fitness, which aims to invigorate the local community with more than 50 yoga and fitness classes, which are more effective than spiking the town?s water supply with Mountain Dew.
From beach boot camp to kids? exercise classes, the offerings are as diverse as the instructors. Of these teachers, some hail from Brazil and some have studied in exotic locales such as Istanbul, but they all enhance their classes in their own ways. The majority of these sessions happen inside a studio known as ?the heartspace.? Local artwork covers the walls of the studio, which is lined with hardwood floors and surrounded by mirrors. Out on the brick patio, guests can enjoy veggie protein shakes or count bricks until they fall asleep. On the first Friday of the month, the studio hosts black-light yoga, yoga for kids, and a community potluck. On weekends, the space is available for rehearsal dinners, art openings, and other events.
