Join us for Balance, Leadership, and Liberation, a 200 hour Yin Yoga training in Alameda California, July 29-August 23, 2019, hosted at Leela Yoga Alameda.
This training is a collaboration between Love Light Yoga and The Equity Collective. Founders Danielle and Dia have joined forces to explore the overlaps and intersections between the physical tension, the subtle body, inner transformation and systems of power. Expanding on 5 years of collaboration and curriculum development, they will support participants in a deep dive of interconnection. Led in collaboration with a stellar team of yogis, participants will explore balance in process, leadership in life, and the practice of liberation. This training is an opportunity to embody transformation, physically and socially. It is a space to experience yoga practice and philosophy, both, on and off the mat.
Leela Yoga Alameda is in gorgeous San Francisco Bay and privileges community over personality with a commitment to approaching yoga as a life practice. Founder, Beth Zygelbaum is a master teacher who focused on the female pelvis and yoga for both pre and postnatal bodies.
In addition to Beth, Melanie Green, Brima Jah, and Alex Crow join Dia and Danielle for this inspirational month of study. Melanie has an open heart, is fiercely devoted to justice, the co-founder of Berkeley Yoga Center, and deconstructs Ashtanga for both new and seasoned practitioners. Brima exudes love, dances like no one’s watching, serves as a mental health case manager, and practices his devotion in the everyday moments of life. Alex embraces the subtle realm challenging us all to experience liminal space by demonstrating the healing of Reiki, Nidra and how Yin energy serves to balance everything.

I am very grateful and excitement to be working again with my collaboration co-teacher Ryan Thompson. We used to teach yin and acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine workshops together back in the day in Vancouver and I also hosted him for a special Meridians and Yin retreat in Jamaica a few years back. Ryan recently returned to school and his been rocking the adaptation of his badass work. Check out his bio:
Ryan is a registered Acupuncturist, and Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioner. He has worked in private practice for over 13 years, which includes several trips to teach and support impoverished communities in India, Guatemala, and the Dominican Republic.
Recently, Ryan has graduated as a registered Psychiatric Nurse to supplement his work in the Downtown East Side of Vancouver where he has worked in supportive housing projects, homeless shelters, and supervised injection sites.
He has always been socially active in his practice and outreach and its SUPER rad that after his committed studies focus, he has time to return to come yin offerings. We are hosting a special four part series of community acupuncture and yin yoga where you can join one, a few or all of them. Information is here and ticket links are here.

I am excited and nervous to be crafting another way in which I interact with my community, moving my works into the digital and audio realm. I am also making fine art projects that are going to be copied and mailed out as well. This platform will bridge my work as a yoga educator, artist and activist. I am really excited to be crafting these parts and pieces for my peeps and would LOVE to hear what yin parts you are looking for.
Thank you for supporting my offerings over these last 10 years of teaching yoga...its been a joy pleasure and journey and I look forward to the works that are coming ahead.
