Workshops with Mas Vidal!
We believe Yoga is so much more than a physical practice, it is the art and science of self-reflection and self-refinement. At Be The Change, we provide group classes for students of all levels, backgrounds and health conditions in non-heated studios, while integrating tools for self-care and personal development into every class. We pride ourselves on offering modifications for every pose, so students can practice safely in a group class setting and customize their practice. We also offer a wide array of integrative wellness services, so students can integrate additional healing modalities into their lives. In addition, we are proud to host Orange County’s first Yoga Therapist Training aligned with the standards of the International Association of Yoga Therapists.
Be The Change Yoga is collaborating with the Melinda Hoag Smith Center for Healthy Living (MHSCHL) located in Newport Beach. We provide weekly group yoga therapy classes in English and Spanish for underserved communities.
