There is no better place to deepen your yoga practice and enhance your journey as a yogi than the Long Beach Peninsula. Weather permitting, we will practice yoga outside on the lawn or on the beach, where we can listen to the birds sings and hear the roar of the Ocean. There will be four yoga instructors at the 2021 festival, each with their own unique style and variety. These classes are appropriate for all levels of experience, from beginning to advanced, and there is no additional charge for yoga classes.

Dawn Sorenson

Dawn began her yoga journey in 2009 while living in Los Angeles as a freelance artist. What starting as stretches to help alleviate aches and pains from childhood injuries turned into an in depth journey to India.

Being a curious purist at heart, looking into the roots of this ancient practice had her going to the source of it all- northern and southern India and obtaining her 500 hour certification with studies into various types of yoga, meditation, mindfulness and breath-work. Dawn has been continually teaching restorative and meditative yoga modalities since returning to the states in 2017.

Dawn has a passion for the art of yoga and sharing it with others- the inner relationship of union in the mind, body and soul that allows us to heal by calming the nervous system, quieting the mind, transform and continue to grow in awareness/alignment each day.

Peggy Raye

Peggy was injured by her doctor while giving birth, and it led to massive blood loss and severe postpartum complications. As a result, she lost her health, income, insurance, career, and ultimatley, her marriage, home, and family life. She also lost something more, her sense of safety and security, sense of humor, joy, and love of life.

She began a 20-year journey into the darkness of chronic pain, fatigue, anxiety, and a sense of loss so deep the sadness crushed her spirit. Throughout her journey back to health, miracles began to happen daily, and she was re-awakened to the presence of her very soul. Peggy now shares the tools and insights she used to find her way back to the light with her yoga students in Spokane, Washington.
