Day 43 SF-Yoga Toes-Amanda Giacomini

Once upon a time….there were two roadtrippin’ YoYo’s on a “most excellent” adventure in the City of Seattle.  Approached by beautiful bohemians who spoke in hush-hush tones, they were told about a magical … barn, in Northern California, Toby’s Barn.  The confused YoYos thought these colorful hippies must have mistakenly taken them for farmers… so; the YoYo’s simply put that secret barn story deep in their memory bank and traveled to their next “not to miss” studio.

43 days later in Marin County, the YoYo’s head toward the Pacific to take class in Point Reyes Station- a tiny community with a reputation for some surprisingly peace-producin’ yoga.  Through field and farm, eventually we arrived at the super-cool, organic western town as we searched the only main street for the celebrated yoga studio, Yoga Toes.  Stunned were we, when we realized the unique logo was attached to a ginormous… barn…Toby’s Barn!  Inside was a real workin’ feed barn… filled with lotsa hay, flowers, and mulch; a hip store with all things feed barn-ish, a “most excellent” espresso shop , a zillion foot wooden roof equipped with theatre lighting for the killer shows and cerebral speakers this unique venue attracts, and the illustrious, Yoga Toes.

Entering this matchless space, the inquisitive YoYo’s couldn’t wait to take class in this unique setting that vibrated with the eclectic energy of owners Nicholas Giacomini aka MC Yogi: rapper, singer, yoga party waitin’ to happen, and beautiful yogini wife, Amanda.  And so it was as the flood gate opened with Amanda warmly welcoming this yoga addicted community inside the sanctuary to get their daily dose of her super-popular morning class in this “too cool” studio.

Energized after Amanda’s gently challenging, “from the heart” class, the faithful followers at Yoga Toes, couldn’t wait to tell the YoYo’s the fascinating “behind the barn” story.  Seems Toby’s Feed Barn, has been in the family for generations…every generation adding a beautiful legacy. MC Yogi (Nicholas) and Amanda have taken “barn raisin” to even higher heights adding lights, action and a whole lotta yoga to this hidden paradise which is the treasure of this community.

The YoYo’s absolutely love this place…love sweet Amanda and her amazing gift of yoga… and love, love, love all the colorful happenins at Toby’s Feed Barn!
