Looking back, 2020 has been a positively special year for the Blissful Yoga community. Some highlights:
Holiday Giving, December 2020
Due to COVID-19, our plans to offer free yoga and meditation classes for underprivileged youth in the Bay Area were placed on hold. Guided by our strong and unwavering purpose, our community came together to raise funds for Life Moves, a nonprofit organization aimed to serve displaced families and confront the homelessness crisis in our community.
We are now a PVSA certifying organization, December 2020
We are extremely excited to share that Blissful Yoga & Wellness is now a President’s Volunteer Service Award Certifying Organization. Led by the AmeriCorps and managed in partnership with Points of Light, we recognize our outstanding volunteers!
The ability to bestow Presidential recognition to our volunteers is a tremendous honor. Recognizing the great work and commitment of our volunteers delivers a powerful message, one that encourages others to take action.
Holiday Schedule, December 2020
Friends, we've added Gentle Yoga to our regular class offerings as a special Holiday treat for you all. So join us virtually and make the most of our free community classes. Contact us for Zoom details.
Coming soon!!! Gentle Yoga classes! November 2020
We are excited to welcome our dear friend and fellow yoga teacher, Maria Laura Ortega, to our community. Maria is joining us as a volunteer teacher.
Maria’s interest in yoga began in 2007, after reading “Autobiography of a Yogi” by Paramhansa Yogananda. At this time, she was living in her native country, Argentina. After moving to the US in 2011, Maria began participating in workshops and classes at well-recognized institutions.
Her passion for Yoga led her to complete a 200hr teacher training certification in 2018. She is also on track to finish an advanced 300hr YTT by the end of 2020. Maria has also completed her 200hr Meditation Teacher Training.
María’s classes are infused with healing touch, creatively blending physical movement, use of positive affirmations, meditation and harmonizing sounds of crystal bowls. All these elements make for a unique experience on centeredness, ease, and peace in your life.
Partnership with public schools, October 2020
We're proud to partner with Silver Oak Elementary School in San Jose as we continue to fulfil our mission to make yoga available for all. Teaching students to develop body-mind awareness and the ability to nurture their own well-being.

Our program focuses on building self confidence, helps kids know their super powers, find balance and dream big!
One child at the end of this session wrote the following in the Zoom chat - 'please don't end'. This filled our hearts with joy.
Youth Holistic Living, August 2020
We are thrilled to embark on this journey of physical health and well being with your child. Our carefully crafted program will empower youth and encourage them to be the best version of themselves.
