Meet South Bay Yoginis

South Bay Yoginis (female Yogis) are highly trained yoga teachers in the South Bay of Los Angeles, California. We teach classes mostly in the Beach Cities of Manhattan Beach, Hermosa Beach, & Redondo Beach. We also teach in Palos Verdes, Torrance, and El Segundo. We have taken classes/workshops with some of the top teachers in the world, such as Pattabhi Jois, Rodney Yee, Ana Forrest, Shiva Rae, Erich Shiffman and Gurmukh Kaur Khalsa to name a few. We are certified in yoga (and other healing practices), registered with the Yoga Alliance and have been practicing yoga for over 20 years. We can be hired for one time only events or to teach class series. We can come to you, teach in your office or for special events, or you can come to us, our schedule of classes are posted.

We are yoga teachers truly on the path of yoga. We do not just “teach” yoga. We walk the path of yoga.  We pride ourselves in truly helping students find their true identity through the path of yoga. We teach several different styles of yoga in the Hatha yoga family including Vinyasa Flow, Ananda, Gentle/Restoratives, and Basics. Founder, Valinda Cochella, of South Bay Yoginis also teaches the most ancient form of healing yoga, Kundalini Yoga.

So, if you’re looking to Still Your Mind, Open Your Heart, Speak Your Truth & Live Your Dreams, Strengthen your Body, or just Relax, we have the class for you! Choose to work with a teacher who has walked the path herself. If you truly want to heal your body, your mind and your spirit, you will. A teacher can only take you as far as she has come!
