  • To Subhadra: 
    Thank you for the most excellent experiences I (and my sister-in-law) had at Yoga Angels! I have now relocated back to Texas, and Dan's time in Jamaica ends at the end of this month.

    You have a wonderful organization and philosophy, and I learned much from my experiences that will stay with me forever. (Example: thanks for the foot exercise which healed my "Blue Mountain" foot.--in case you ever wondered).

    Peace, light, and love

    Subhadra was excellent with the children. Yoga is great to learn, esp. for children with Sickle cell, because it teaches them to control their bodies.

    Challenging but very rewarding and makes your body feel very peaceful afterward.

  • "With Subhadra's training I learned yoga from the inside out. I came into the teacher training without a yoga background. I was a little intimidated by the other students who had a yoga practice, but I was never treated differently. It was hard, but through the training I was able to connect with the purpose of yoga. As a result, I was able to teach my young students with confidence and freedom. AND it gets better everyday."

  • Dear KPFK spirituality programmers, my name is Dan Fritz, and I do extensive volunteer and news work early mornings at KPFK. Let me draw your attention to the Jamaican-born yoga teacher, Subhadra Griffiths. She's currently working to bring yoga to kids throughout the L.A. area through her non-profit organization Yoga Angels (yogaangels.com). She has brought yoga into elementary, middle and high schools throughout LA and LAUSD schools, including Fairfax high school, and many more. She is absolutely devoted to what she does and to the inner gifts of the children. And after training for over a decade in the rigorous Iyengar system of yoga, world-renowned as the most meticulous form of asana yoga, she's bringing the benefits of this system and adapting it into a creative, stimulating, balanced, amazing experience and environment for under-privileged, over-privileged, all the kids in L.A.-area schools. She's bursting with information regarding the wonderful effects yoga brings to a child's school experience. With the mandatory testing, competitive P.E. environment, underpaid adults, sugar-laden diet, cutbacks to the arts and sports... yoga provides real answers, no, real directions for these children to be able to look inside for their own answers. Subhadra trains her students to weave the spiritual wisdom of yoga into the classroom without offending any religious sensitivity. I could compliment her comprehensive approach forever. I'm only at KPFK in the early mornings so I have to write this e-mail. But I have no doubt that when you meet Subhadra and listen to her discuss her mission, you'll fall in love with her, as I have. Although I've met each of you, you may not remember me as it has been quite awhile since I've been at KPFK past 10am. Subhadra's my yoga instructor and my friend, and I have no inhibitions fully endorsing her as a guest for all of your shows. Please contact me at (805) 207-5284 if you want to hear more about her. You can call her on her cell at (310) 384-1202 — Thank you very much, Dan Fritz
