About Colin Eldridge

Colin teaches and helps coordinate Yoga, Permaculture and Outdoors programs at the Sivananda Yoga Farm in Grass Valley, California, USA. He is a trained permaculture designer, naturalist, and yoga instructor. He earned his BA in Environmental Studies and Education at Hampshire College. He is currently training to be a certified Yoga Therapist through the Sivananda Yoga Health Educator Training (SYHET).

Through his project Fractal Permaculture, Colin teaches participatory and interactive workshops around topics such as permaculture, yoga, ayurveda, holistic health, art, eco-social justice, nature awareness, and ecology. In 2015, he taught and organized an interdisciplinary community class at Hampshire College entitled "Racial Justice, Regeneration and Permaculture". He worked as an Environmental Educator and Naturalist with The Great Basin Institute and Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest in 2017. Throughout the years, Colin has taught yoga and permaculture with many organizations and events such as The NorCal Permaculture Convergence, Global Eclipse Gathering, Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centers, Vaidyagrama Ayurvedic Healing Village and more.

Colin has worked on several land and community based permaculture projects such as Clearpath Herbals Medicinal Garden, Tripple Brook Farm, Help Yourself, Greenwich Forest Garden, La Finca (Nuestras RaĆ­ces), and multiple WWOOF locations, where he learned practical skills in organic gardening, perennial plant care, mushroom cultivation, animal husbandry, composting, greenhouse management/repair, integrated pest management, food forestry, hugelkultur, grafting, food preservation/fermentation, wildcrafting and medicine making.

He is grateful to have learned directly from inspiring and seasoned instructors like Bill Wilson, Spencer Nielsen, Lydia Neilsen, Penny Livingston-Stark, Kathi Keville, Chris Marano, Felix Lufkin, and Ned Phillips-Jones.

When he's not practicing yoga or exploring the wild with friends, Colin enjoys writing articles, creating visionary graphic art, and playing video games.
