As a former Marine and Department of Defense worker turned Massage Therapist Hatha Yogi Healer and Wellness Educator, Yogi Ramadin has a wide background of life experience and education. He brings this life experience and his passion for empowered embodied spirit forward through his work and his projects in personal, interpersonal and community healing work.
On a personal physical level, Ramadin provides Bodywork and Energywork. His bodywork ranges from clinical to therapeutic and periodically includes the use of an amazing sound healing massage table. The sound healing table combined with massage and energy work create a sense of deep relaxation where integration and deep peace can sink in. His solid training in physiology, massage and energy work puts clients at ease knowing that he understands the science of their body and the stress that comes with feeling pain or disconnection. He finds it especially rewarding to create the safe space and serve community in feeling more healthful, more vibrant and more connected.
On a personal emotional level, Ramadin provides personal support with Connective Communication. This can look like hearing a client explain particular life challenges and then either providing emotional support so that a deeper integration can be reached or supporting the client with adopting some life changing approaches that can help them get better results. Ramadin also supports couples and small groups in restoring harmony, collaboration and trust through education and facilitated conversations.
On the interpersonal and community healing level, he is enthusiastic to continue expanding Connective Communication by providing workshops, community edutainment and improv groups to foster life skills and teambuilding. He is currently looking for youth educators to join the Connective Communication youth empowerment team.
If you would like to collaborate or find out if his services are right for you, please request an appointment to discuss your needs via phone or in person.

Yogi Ramadin offers both personal healing and group workshop experiences. You can see a range of testimonies below.
After reaching out to a common community of friends, you reached back offering support. We spoke for over an hour. Your insight and willingness to speak openly with gentleness and warmth allowed me to really hear the message.
Afterwards, I felt grounded, empowered to take responsibility for my actions and make amends. I wished I had reached out a week earlier. Thank you for being there for me and my heart.

Personal Healing testimony by: L. Miller
I’d like to thank you so very much for the sacred work you have done with me. Your impressive intuition was expressed without judgement and communicated so clearly. I felt truly safe and open in your presence. The energy work that you facilitated helped me so much, bringing me balance and clarity of heart and mind. You’ve given me a beautiful gift of healing. Thank you Yogi Ramadin. I look so forward to working with you again 🙂
Personal Healing testimony by: Nena S.
I want to publicly thank you for an awesome conversation and insightful observations and analysis. Your relating skills, presence, generosity of emotion, empathy and solidarity are valuable, enlightening and healing. I also want to mention that you were fluid and graceful in the way that you kept me on point and focused on my internal process, behaviors and modes and your listening of me was deep, thoughtful and incisive. Just what I needed. Another pair of eyes to help me through my blind spots. Still integrating the revelations. love you man.
Personal Healing testimony by: Ken I. Martial Arts Enthusiast
Thank you Yogi Ramadin for facilitating that session. I felt both personally supported as well as constructively challenged by the healing field that you created. I was feeling very stuck around those misunderstandings and you helped my lover and I to get through what had been impassable before. You are very skilled and graceful.
Mediation testimony by: Basin H.: Life Coach
I’d like to express my gratitude for a beautiful clearing facilitated by Yogi Ramadin. I feel light in my heart, and open to possibilities in a relationship which had become difficult and estranged. Amazing what clearing up a few key misunderstandings can do to clear the way to more easeful connection. I suspect now more healing will continue to occur between us. Ahhhhh, what a relief!
I really appreciate how Ramadin tracked us as we were expressing ourselves, guiding us to be clean in our communication, veering away from language that feels blaming or making wrong… and noting when we are being defensive. This is key to truly being heard.
Mediation testimony by: Kristal J.: Business Owner
Thank you Ramadin for the amazing gift you gave us, for well prepared and organized workshop. My [ Relating] skills have already improved and my knowledge has been enhanced. Thanks for all participants for sharing. I would love to do this over and over again. xoxo
Personal Healing testimony by: Master Kubi
I’ve experienced Ramadin as extremely insightful with feedback, reframes, & suggestions in my relating. Even with issues I’d been struggling with for months, he magically had simple solutions for. I felt impressed, and, grateful for the positive changes in my relating as a result of his help.
Communication testimony by: Wendy S.
Ramadin has a great mix of expertise and warm presence. 🙂
Personal Healing testimony by: Alissa B. Psychotherapist and MFT
That was quite possibly the best massage I’ve ever had! You are very talented, Ramadin. Thanks again. I’m looking forward to the next one.
Bodywork testimony by: D.D. Yogi, Musician, Cinematographer
I enjoyed the general atmosphere and the exercises were very helpful to help understand the tools that were presented.
Workshop testimony by: Tim O.
Totally worthwhile two hours. Ramadin provided clear direction and kept the group focused on self awareness, sensitivity to others and using useful conversational techniques.
Workshop testimony by: Judy L. Communication Enthusiast
This past weekend I found myself in a very intense heated conversation and I was so overwhelmed with the emotions of it all that I could barely even compute the words being spoken to me. The practicing of the reflexive listening and mirroring we did at your [ Navigating Tricky Conversations Skillfully ] Work shop really helped me to keep engaging in the conversation and not shut down from being overwhelmed.
Communication and Mindfulness testimony by: Communication Enthusiast, Oakland CA
Yogi Ramadin, You are a Wizard!

Workshop testimony by: Heather
Excellent class, really clear and tangible tools to turn Bad Conversations into Satisfying ones.
Workshop testimony by: Erin S.
[Ramadin] had the confidence and knowledge to work with me while I was struggling mightily with the fall-out of antibiotic treatment for Lyme Disease (LD). He informed himself on LD and took a thorough case history. My care was personal and specific. I really appreciated his in home services and great massage talent.
Personal Healing testimony by: Vickie H.
I learned that there is a better and more awakened way of communicating, other than NVC, and that perhaps my family situation is way beyond repair. I have been checking out and trying every communication course available to help me get to a place of acceptance and/or closure regarding my abusive family situation. [Your Connective Communication] system is very comprehensive, interesting and compelling! I want to learn more!
Workshop testimony by: M. W, Life Coach
Your workshop exceeded my expectations and I would strongly recommend it to others! The techniques that you have developed to help people communicate without the unnecessary drama is well thought out, based on concepts that are sound and easily adapted with practice and offer a very real opportunity to change the way we interact with others. Your presentation style is clear, smooth and encouraging.
Workshop testimony by: Gary, Communication Enthusiast
As always, appreciating your attention to the real human experience, Yogi Ramadin, the ups and downs, natural impulses to open and close, and how to engage the flow towards opening more effectively to communication. Love your specific, user-friendly strategies.
Personal Healing testimony by: Alissa Blackman, Berkeley Somatic Psychotherapist
Ramadins workshop Exceeded my expectations! I was already impressed by the material, but it was powerful to see it in action. I Loved seeing the effect the workshop had on it’s attendees, how they are able to learn simple tools in a short amount of time that will translate into real world success. I strongly recommend these life changing communication techniques that will strengthen any relationship.
Workshop testimony by: Joanna S. Business Communications Expert
You know Yogi I was not really expecting very much from the group. I thought i would show up pay a few dollars and leave wondering why i do these things to myself. The last thing i expected was two very intelligent, accomplished speakers who were intent on sharing some pretty amazing tools that will help me build new relationships and take some of my current ones to a higher level. I was also impressed with some of the other attendees. It never ceases to amaze me how so many people truly just want to be healthy in all aspects of their life. i am definitely interested in attending more groups and will watch for emails letting me know when they are planned.
The group aim [of Ramadin’s workshop] is to help each person learn how to have conversations with anyone in their life without feeling as if the event was a disaster. There were 15 people who showed up and each of them brought something special to the group. The event lasted three hours but it did not seem that long at all. I would definitely recommend this group to anyone who is wanting to develop techniques that will allow them to have meaningful and rewarding relationships in every aspect of their life.
Workshop testimony by: Gary L Hayes
As a bodyworker myself with well over 10 years experience, I’m pretty picky about the bodywork I receive, and Ramadin is amazing. He’s not only very intuitive about what your body needs, but he works on an energetic level as well. After a session with him, I always feel well-nourished physically and metaphysically. I plan to be receiving bodywork from him for years to come.”
Personal Healing testimony by: Karin Wertheim, Bodyworker and Counselor
I was feeling all out of sorts 2 days ago and I asked what healer could assist me, and Yogi Ramadin was the only healer that came up for me. We spoke for a while and he informed me I was not the only one feeling this way and to hold on till the end of March, my birthday actually, March 27th. Yesterday, I balanced my chakras before the session and I seemed out of wack. I slept for 12 hours last night and then balanced my chakras this morning and I feel totally different! This man is amazing if you feel like you need energy work!
Personal Healing testimony by: Shelby Sharie Sound Healing
Thank you from the deepest depths of my heart for this wonderful workshop! Thanks to all the lovely souls (my new friend and workshop partner) who showed up! Yogi Ramadin absolutely delivered (and then some) everything promised :)”

Your examples really brought your methods to life.”

I actually fell asleep while getting bodywork today – I can’t remember the last time that happened! Ramadin does good work. =)
