Support Niroga

Angie Needels

The Niroga Yoga Studio and Center for Well Being is operated by the Niroga Institute, a non profit organization bringing yoga out into the community for at risk youth and underserved populations. They are having a fundraiser this weekend and we should all be there to support their great work. On September 18-19, Niroga will be participating in the Richmond Community Foundation's WeGive2013 event! This is a 2-day online fundraising event. They want to raise $20,000 that will allow them to implement Transformative Life Skills (TLS) in 2 Richmond Schools. Watch this video that highlights their TLS program at Oakland Technical High School.

Thanks for your support friends!

Meet Rachel Yellin: HypnoCentered Birth Educator

Angie Needels


Rachel Yellin wears many hats and is a very VERY talented and amazing woman! Someone you WANT on your birth team for sure! She was a birth doula for many years, and now teaches HypnoCentered Childbirth Education, provides many pregnancy related services, is a consultant, depth hypnosis practitioner / hypnotherapist, yoga instructor, and non-denominational minister.

You can see everything she offers at!

I LOVE her Relaxation CD and listen to it several times a week. Her Ultra Depth Relaxation Audio download is only $5.50. My favorite ritual is to take a hot epsoms salts bath, crawl into bed in a dark bedroom and pop on this CD on my headphones. What a perfect way to pamper yourself and shed away the stress of the day!

Rachel has been a MamaKai advocate since day one! She knows the great value of eating nutrient-dense foods to support not only a healthy you (mama and papa) but also a healthy child! THANK YOU RACHEL for supporting MamaKai and seeing your community have more access to healthful meals.
