The Dailey Method San Diego, an innovative fitness regimen combining pilates and strength training with a ballet barre, joins forces with The Dailey Methods of Rancho Bernardo Poway and Carlsbad to combine fitness, family and fundraising at the Daileyfest on Sunday, September 13. The event is benefitting Heartlight San Diego, a non-profit organization that provides after school fitness programming for youth. Everyone, whether a pilates pro or fitness newbie, is invited to celebrate a family-friendly morning of health and wellness from 9 a.m. to 1:00pm at the Embarcadero Marina Park.

“One of The Dailey Method’s core values is to encourage everyone to live healthy lifestyles and by partnering with The Dailey Method Rancho Bernardo Poway and Carlsbad, we are empowering all of San Diego to be a part of The Dailey Method community,” said Ashley Adam, owner of The Dailey Method San Diego. “We partnered with Heartlight San Diego, which offers youth programs that promote active lifestyles, to get attendees of all ages involved in the fun. By joining forces we are able to spread the importance of health and fitness to families everywhere.”

The Daileyfest will kick off with a Dailey Interval class followed by a Dailey Express class. The 45-minute workouts are designed for students to work at their own pace, combining high and low intensity movements. The Daileyfest will wrap up with a group meditation and a Dailey Baby class, where attendees are encouraged to participate with their infants. The festival experience continues all day with aerial yoga performances, a laser maze, an obstacle course, a live DJ, a braid bar and health and wellness vendors including Teeki, Beyond Yoga, OH! Juice, NutsforPaleo and many more local businesses. The Daileyfest is an all green event—down to the solar powered stage and sound equipment.


“It’s critical that we teach the importance of exercise to the younger generations,” said Adam. “Heartlight San Diego’s programs appeal to children of every fitness level, stressing the bottom line—fun. We’re lucky to partner with an organization that puts fun back into working out and builds healthy habits that will last these kids a lifetime.”

All net profits from the festival will go towards Heartlight San Diego. The non-profit organization will host a kid’s area, where parents can pay for child care while they enjoy taking The Dailey Method classes. Children under three will be supervised by Heartlight San Diego, while older kids (ages 4-12) get the opportunity to learn a dance routine to perform at the Daileyfest.
