Amanda 

Amanda loves the beauty of movement and has dedicated herself to developing strength of body and mind.  At age 3, she started training as a dancer and carries this dynamic background into her teaching style and own yoga practice.  Amanda’s journey into yoga began in 2001. She quickly became fascinated with how different flows between postures could strengthen the body.  Her love for learning and desire to dive deeper into
yogic philosophy, especially the Bhagavad Gita, prompted her to complete 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training under the direction of Rebecca Sathre at URU Yoga and Beyond in Pensacola, FL.  Amanda easily transitioned from student to teacher and began leading vinyasa and aerial yoga in Florida and now Hawaii.  Her classes are energizing and playful – designed to leave students feeling invigorated, grounded, and both physically and mentally strong.  When she’s not swinging from her silks, Amanda’s usually off
hiking or spending time with her husband, two daughters, and her three rescue pups.

Misti 

Misti lives in Honolulu and has been practicing yoga for over 13 years.  She did her Yoga Teacher Training through CorePower Yoga in 2017 to be followed by a Yoga Sculpt certification a few months later.  Additionally, Misti is also a Level 1 Reiki practitioner.

Yoga started merely as a physical practice for Misti and she didn’t understand that there was so much more to the practice than the asanas.  Now she can attribute yoga to helping her through grief, trauma, anxiety and all o the other curve balls life can throw at us.  She is passionate about sharing this gift that yoga has given her with others.  She loves to sweat and laugh hard, two of life’s best cures in her opinion.

Currently she teaches yoga as a passion and works as an Account Manager.  In addition to teaching, she also hosts yoga retreats as she believes firmly that taking time for yourself is essential if you are going to show up as your best self.  Yoga led her on a journey to self-love and hopes to share that gift with others.

Sarena 

I completed my 200-hour teacher training at Raffa Yoga in Rhode Island, a hands-on-assists training at Jala in Rhode Island, and my aerial yoga training through Antigravity in New York. Upside down and in the air are my two favorite places in the world.

Yoga has been empowering me in all aspects of my life for over five years and I love to share that feeling of empowerment with my students by guiding them through challenging and creative sequences. A lot of aspects of life are way too serious and yoga should not be one of them! Come to class with an open mind and heart and be ready to play.

Winter 

Drawing on the timeless wisdom of the ancient Vedas, my goal as a yoga teacher is to create an authentic and supportive space for students to explore the science of self-realization. 

I was trained internationally, earning my 500-hour yoga teacher certification in Australia. I studied gong sound healing and breathwork in Bali.  I’ve also trained in trauma-informed yoga, white light Reiki, and Intuitive Balinese massage.

As a Bhakti yogi, I’m inspired by ritual and devotion, the sacred connections found in nature, and by the practice of simple living.  I endeavor to provide students a blueprint for experiencing a simple, mindful, spiritually based lifestyle.  In my classes, you will be guided through movement, breath, and meditation, so that you may step out of the unconscious state of ‘doing’ and into the mindful state of ‘being’.

When I’m not on the mat, I love chanting mantra on the beach at sunrise, riding my bike, and hosting vegan pizza nights for friends.
