Long Beach School of Yoga (LBSOY) is dedicated to bringing authentic Yoga & Ayurveda teachings to the Southern California, Los Angeles and Orange County areas (and now the world via the Internet!).  

The founder Ram Bhakt has studied yoga internationally and seeks to share an inclusive and flexible approach that is safe and true to classical yoga teachings. Our school is a great community to be a part of and always growing.

Teacher Training sessions are held on the California State University Long Beach campus (and online) as well as specialty pop-up workshops including topics such as pranayama, meditation, Ayurveda and laughter yoga.

    Exceptional online training program. I would definitely recommend this training anyone who not only wants to become a teacher, but who wants to be taught by someone who has lived what they teach.

    I feel that Ram did an incredible job in transitioning from in-person to virtual during the COVID 19 pandemic. Although the shut down threatened to post-pone our training, Ram quickly adapted the lessons to be done virtually.
