I was first introduced to yoga in 2005, when my cousin dragged me to a drop-in class in Honolulu. Since my first class, I have been a dedicated practitioner learning from numerous lineages of yoga, across the world. In 2015, I received my 200hr certification with Dana Trixie Flynn at Laughing Lotus NY. Shortly after, I was certified by Liberation Prison Yoga to teach a trauma-conscious yoga and meditation practice for incarcerated adults, going on to teach at Riker’s Island and Manhattan Detention Complex in NYC. During this time, I apprenticed with Lineage Project who focused on bringing movement and mindfulness to incarcerated and at-risk youth.
I am passionate and believe that yoga and meditation are tools to help us heal, one-on-one and in community. This means creating safe spaces that are welcoming to everyone. This means classes that can be modified for every-body. This also means, teaching at diverse and inclusive studios, one-on-one sessions and working with Native communities.
My journey has allowed me to share my practice with a wide range of students from adults and youth in jail to Native American Reservations and back to Hawaii to work with Native youth. All of this has been made possible through the sacred practice of yoga and meditation.
You will find a safe space, intentionally designed to be accessible for everyone and infused with Hawaiian culture and aloha!
