Loren Yandoc

Loren distinctly recalls how much yoga resonated with her upon taking her first class in 2007. Initially, the physical benefits were incentive enough for her to practice regularly; When health concerns posed a threat to her mental well-being, the real impact of the practice became apparent. She realized true strength is harnessed beyond the body: The true power of yoga develops in the mind, from within.

In 2013, she chose to step away from her management role in editorial to pursue her certification through Yoga Vida in New York. A native Hawaiian raised in Miami and San Diego, Loren spent a dozen years on the East Coast, with the last half teaching full-time all over NYC and on occasion overseas to guide retreats. In the fall of 2020 she saw an opportunity to return to the state she calls home and is deeply grateful to be back, close to her family, and in the radiance of San Diego’s sunshine. #noplacelikeom
