San Diego was a blast!Just came back on a red-eye flight this morning! I had a quick trip to San Diego for a 3-day conference this week where among many great speakers, I got to hear Michelle Obama talk about health and fitness for children. Lots of inspiration about how keeping us active contributes to so many dimensions of wellness. I'll write more about it once I rest up!!
Our weekly classes are happening as usual this weekend but please note that we'll be closed for a birthday party from 3-5pm on Sat 9/22. Interested in hosting a skate birthday party with us? Lean more here!
Kids (Ages 6-12)
Just coming back from vacation and trying to figure out what you want your kids to do for the rest of the summer? How about trying out our skate camp? We welcome all levels and offer complimentary skate gear rental, so you can try out skateboarding for a week and see how you like it! Watch our summer camp video and learn more about what makes our camp special.
SKATEYOGI's summer camp has begun and it's been a lot of fun making new friends and skating!
Some people think that skateboarding is for boys, but actually here at SKATEYOGI 40-50% of our students are girls! (Come to our adult class and you'll see more female students than male ones.) From female adult students, we often hear them say: "Skateboarding was something boys did when I was a teenager, but now they think "F-it, I'm learning how to do this before I die."
Whatever your motivations are, we welcome everyone here!
Visiting NYC next week and looking for something fun for your child to do? Come to SKATEYOGI for our day camp sessions on 7/5 and 7/6. You can come just for the day or both days!
We've received some emails from parents wondering if we were offering day camps this week. Our weekly camp for this week is at capacity and also, for any weekly camps, we are not allowing any drop-ins due to our flow of our program. With that said, please take advantage of the upcoming day camps!!
We still have some room remaining for the upcoming day camp session! Please sign up soon to reserve your spot. $145 for regular day (8:30am-3:30pm) + $30 for extended day until 6pm.

It's been rainy and kinda chilly all week long in NYC but summer is just around the corner! At SKATEYOGI we are gearing up for the summer season where we get to go out and skate! Day camps in June can be a great way for your child to try out what it's like to be in a skateboarding camp.
FYI if your child attends NYC public schools, they don't have school on Thu, June 7, Mon, June 11 and Fri June 15.
Our day camps are for ages 6-12 and run from 8:30am – 3:30pm. (Drop off between 8:30-9am and pick up between 3-3:30pm. If your child is doing extended day, pick up is between 5:30-6pm). It's $145/day + $30 for extended day.
Rental gear is included, so you don't need to buy anything in advance! Please have your child wear comfortable clothes and sneakers (ideally w/ flat soles, but regular ones are fine) and bring lunch, snacks and water!
