Reflect & Restore: Yoga & Sound Bath Journey
Join Darren Obong and Veesta Vafadari for an intentionally curated yoga and sound bath class on the beach in Newport Beach, CA. We will honor the transition into Winter and balance the season's Kapha (earth) energies with reflective practices to help us reconnect to ourselves, mother nature, and community! We will gather together and practice yoga with Lululemon ambassador Veesta Vafardi and then transition into a long restorative sound bath with Darren Obong.
Class will take place near Life Guard Tower 44 on the beach in Newport Beach, CA. Please plan to arrive early for you to find parking and secure a comfortable spot.

Darren is an intuitive guide and embodiment teacher who has extensive training in energy medicine, eastern medicine, yoga therapeutics, trauma-informed yoga, breathwork, meditation, functional movement, and mobility. He utilizes his knowledge from these different healing modalities and his knowledge from his education in Traditional Chinese Medicine to help individuals live more embodied and fulfilling lives. He works with people from all walks of life and offers his work privately in 1:1 sessions with his clients, for big corporations, private events, and other special and sacred occasions.
Veesta has been practicing yoga since she first stepped into a studio at 14 years old with her big sister. She didn’t realize how valuable this practice would be to her life. She was not athletic, felt uncoordinated, and struggled to hold downward dog for five full breaths, but attended class twice a week anyway. In college, having observed friends’ struggle with the mind-body connection and general health, she realized how in tune she was with her body thanks to her yoga practice.
She completed her 200hr yoga teaching certification with Ra Yoga. This achievement changed her life forever and for the better. Prior to teaching yoga, Veesta obtained her Master’s in Social Work from CSUF and worked as a medical social worker, advocating primarily for older adults. Veesta believes in curating a yoga space of empowerment and respect for ALL individuals. She encourages movement that is intuitive and promotes a sense of strength within each individual.
