“Support and comfort is just a breath away”. Being a yoga instructor and a practitioner for over 37 years, one learns to straddle the fence of vulnerability and comfort. The balance between student and teacher resonates to create a sense of familiarity with our experiences in a parallel life- in essence I feel what you feel. We are all connected. I am forever reminded that “Sometimes the teacher must become the student". As I share my lessons on and off the Mat, I'm quietly asking for your permission to guide us into the expanded heart from one yogi to another by releasing the emotions stuck in your hips, grounding your feet so that you might stand a little taller each and everyday. It is my hope that these are lessons to keep us moving forward in life, creating a place of forgiveness in our hearts and quite possibly a breath of enlightenment which can signal that sound of Ommmm!!!!! Let us exhale out the old so that we may inhale a brand new life experience of comfort within ourselves by embracing a safe space to practice our understanding of compassion. Melba created THE WRAP as a symbol of our practice. The comfort of THE WRAP offers us a unique style to dry off the sweat of which we earned while on the mat. THE WRAP has the added convenience of wicking and length which makes getting in my car and not having to deal with the sweat we yogi’s often are confronted with after an intensive workout.
THE WRAP is created with a cotton/ chanel fabric which took over a year to accomplish the right blend. It comes in 5 different colors, and is great for men, woman and children. It’s also perfect for the pool and the beach and is especially designed for the needs of our senior citizen family. Enjoy THE WRAP- you’ve earned it! Melba has generously donated 2 The Wraps to our raffle to be enjoyed by a lucky yogi. You can follow Melba on social media @itsawrapbymelba. her website is

Namaste as Fuck or NAF as they are referred to, will be present at the festival, walking around among the crowd handing out swag to all participants. What is NAF?
We are here to absolutely disrupt the modern yoga world. We’re here to say 🖕🖕 to the “good vibes only” toxic positivity much of western yoga has turned into. Our mission is to show you that you don’t have to *be* a certain way to practiceor already be able to “let it be.” Let’s be angry if we need to be, sad if we need to be, frustrated if we need to be so that we can heal ourselves and get back to making the world a better place.
When we started practicing in 2010, we couldn’t shake feeling out of place. Everyone at the studio and on Instagram seemed so peaceful while we were sitting in chair pose wanting to punch everyone else in the face.
When we shopped for yoga gear, all we could find were shirts that said something about “love & light” - those words felt right AFTER class, but we felt like liars wearing anything like that while we were practicing.
So, Namaste As Fuck was born. Find them on Facebook @namasteaf and their website www.namasteasfuck.com

Corpo has trained Capoeira under Contra Mestre Xingu and Mestre Amen since the age of 12. He was first introduced to Capoeira through the movie, Only The Strong, featuring what would soon be his Mestre, Amen Santo. Since beginning his training at the Santa Monica Airport studio with Mestre Amen, Corpo Fechado has developed a deep respect for Capoeira and the Afro-Brazilian culture. Corpo Fechado moved to Orange County to attend the University of California, Irvine in 2005. Despite being far from Xingu and Amen, he made every effort to keep his training consistent. During his time at UCI, Corpo Fechado co-founded the Capoeira Cultural Club and became an integral part of instructing the introductory classes with Domingos Begalli at the Anteater Recreation Center (ARC). In this group he aided in the development of new students through the conducting of music lessons, acrobatic beach training, and Capoeira social events. Corpo has trained in other martial arts including White Lotus Kung Fu, Muay Thai, and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu but Capoeira has always been his passion. This passion fueled his senior research project focusing on the social aspects of Capoeira from the different viewpoints of men and women. He earned two Bachelor of Arts degrees in Criminology, Law, & Society and General Social Ecology. After undergraduate studies, Corpo earned a Master of Business Administration degree, focusing in finance, from the Paul Merage School of Business at UC Irvine. He began his career as a Financial Advisor with Morgan Stanley and now works for Wells Fargo Advisors. Corpo Fechado has spread Capoeira and related arts (Maculele and Samba) through performances with Ballet Folclorico Do Brasil directed by Mestre Amen, projects with Contra Mestre Xingu, and through his own endeavors with CDFC Capoeira Long Beach & Irvine. These performances include school assemblies, community events, martial arts expositions, dance performances, red carpet events, and music videos. Corpo Fechado hopes to keep building his Capoeira classes while creating a strong Capoeira community in Long Beach and Orange County. He truly believes that anyone that can walk (and even some that can’t) can play Capoeira and benefit from the endless gifts the art has to offer. CDFC is located 1090 E Wardlow Rd, Long Beach, CA 90807. Their website is http://longbeachcdfc.com/.
