Indigo Yoga & Pilates of Walnut Creek is honored and delighted to host Grammy-nominated Kirtan sensation Jai Uttal for an evening of sacred music and chanting on Saturday, June 30th!
Jai has been leading Kirtans worldwide for nearly 50 years. Kirtan is an ancient practice of call and response chanting that originated in India many centuries ago. During Kirtan, the breath is engaged, the mind is calmed and focused on words of repetition, the heart is lifted with the music, and the need for community is met. “These ancient chants,” writes Jai “contain a transformative power and healing energy. By singing these prayers we join a stream of consciousness and devotion that has been flowing for centuries.”

I was walking near Morucci’s deli on Boulevard Way in Walnut Creek when I passed by a sign for Saranap Village. First proposed back in 2014, it has gone through various updates until the project was approved last year. It will feature up to almost 200 apartments/condos, a supermarket, coffee shop, sit-down restaurant and wine bar. As you can see in the above photo development has yet to start. Check for updates on their Facebook page here and renderings and FAQ on their website here.
Avalon, Walnut Creek
The kickboxing gym iLoveKickboxing is planning on opening mid-July in the Avalon apartment complex near the Pleasant Hill BART station in Walnut Creek. Check out more details on their Walnut Creek page here.
From their website:
iLoveKickboxing is what happened when we took the workouts that get professional fighters so fit… and made them accessible to ANYONE looking to get in awesome shape.
But we didn’t stop there.
We added loud, energizing music to get your heart racing… passionate instructors who really care about you, motivate you every step of the way… and a community of support and friendship lifts you up when you’re feeling down.
