Project Description

Join Yogini Kaliji and the TYI Team in Orange County, Southern California for programs held throughout the year including yogaflow, nada yoga, jnana yoga, and plant-based diet. Orange County is famous for ideal weather, stunning beaches and mountains, top tourist attractions, and great communities—the quintessential California experience.

From childhood, Yogini Kaliji said she would move to the Los Angeles area, and now Kaliji lives an hour south of L.A. in Mission Viejo. The city of Mission Viejo (Spanish for “old mission”) in southern Orange County is one of the largest master-planned communities ever built under a single project in the United States, and one of the safest places to live nationwide. Its neighborhoods and shopping areas are interspersed with many parks and green spaces, and roadways flow with the natural landscape. The community was planned around the twin cornerstones of nature and culture.

There are 53 parks and trails (approximately two parks per square mile) totaling over 800 acres of natural space, and electrical and communication cables run underground preserving views. Community cultural events are scheduled frequently throughout the year.  Mission Viejo and surrounding areas offer endless opportunities for walking and hiking at the beaches, canyons, lakes, and wilderness areas. There are also many vegan restaurants to choose from!

Programs are held at the lovely and spacious Lake Mission Viejo clubhouse. The lake offers private-membership to Mission Viejo residents who can enjoy boating, swimming, picnics, sandy beaches, and great views.

1. Renting car at airport: if you prefer renting your own car, both SNA and LAX offer several options.
