Sydney Strabala grew up in southern California, climbing trees and expressing herself through creative arts the day she could hold a paintbrush. As a young adult she discovered yoga and meditation and has been on the pursuit of self-study and Truth ever since.
Sydney is a highly experienced events and program coordinator and a passionate yogi with a personal mission statement: to empower human beings to step into their embodied Truth. For the past ten years, she has been professionally empowering others, academically, emotionally, and spiritually. Sydney is a KRI certified Kundalini Yoga + Meditation Teacher, Breathwork Coach, and Sound Healing Practitioner. She is also an advocate for self-expression. Sydney is a multi-medium artist and successful creative director, loving both visual arts and vibrational arts. Sydney believes that authentic self-expression and the pursuit of spirituality are deeply intertwined. Her word for this integration is SOUL-EXPRESSION.
In 2016 she founded a creative collective in Los Angeles: Underground Society | The ReRoot Retreats - supporting and providing a safe space for all types of people to commune and explore creative consciousness at workshops, art shows, and retreats.
Syd is a devoted student of life and teacher who shares her love for life through her offerings. Her teaching method draws on multiple yogic lineages - creating a transmission where traditional wisdom is accessible to the modern mind.

I almost didn't go! Despite my continued hesitation I listened to my heart. Well thank God I did go, because in less than 48 hours, I grew significantly as a person and completely shifted perspectives. I am literally a different person in the same body.
Before Syd even said anything, her presence put me at ease, made me feel welcome, and opened my heart. She is so genuine, uplifting, and open hearted, and she makes each student feel so special. Her enthusiasm about yoga is infectious, and I loved her explanations for the origins of some of the practices and translation of the mantras.
I am so grateful for the conscious community Sydney has brought together! I acknowledged parts of myself I've closed off or have been hiding from. I know I am light but I've been afraid of my dark. This retreat made me realize I have nothing to be afraid of. I can be fearless. I feel confident to have found a community that truly supports one another.
I began to realize that my self expression would be my creativity and my presence alone was enough. The Retreat was one of the most unique experiences of my life where after one weekend, it wasn’t weird to tell one another “I love you”. These friends are people who I truly cherish in my life
