i! I'm Randi! I've been practicing yoga for over 18 years now. Back in 2001, I took my first yoga class at Santa Monica college. I was pursuing an education in Physical Fitness and it was open. I fell in love, with how to felt and how much other aspects of my fitness improved. But as much as I loved it, I didn't feel like I 'fit in' in the yoga community at the time. This kept me from seeing myself in the seat of a provider, only a student.
Throughout the past decade, yoga has given me not only the strength but the drive to push past personal hangups and be present, for myself and others. As a Black woman, I felt that there was a need to represent the underrepresented community of Black women and women of color that do love and live yoga. I felt that I needed to do MY part to give everyone, especially women and non-men, a space to be seen, heard and valued.
After years of ignoring my inner voice, I decided, with the help of friends and close family, that it was time to get out of my own way and share this enriching and self developing practice of yoga with any and everyone I can.
With hard work and dedication, I completed my first 200 hour yoga teacher training April 12, 2015.
Since then, I have completed 750+ hours of training, with well over 1,400 hours of classes taught. I strive to give the best knowledge to those I hold space for, so continuing education is a must. I am always a student, regardless of how much I learn. Yoga is a constant teacher. With that being said, I am currently completing a 300 hr yoga teaching certification.
Currently, I teach PowerFlow (power vinyasa), or Yin+Soundbath (restorative / yin practice accompanied by Crystal Singing Bowls and chakra meditations) online via Zoom (repcordings are available for purchase) and I will open up small, outdoor public classes 4/26/2021.
Nude yoga classes are for womxn only and to be hosted at the students location or online.
Many blessings to you all.
