Happy New Year! New Winter Class Schedule!

Aloha yogis and yoginis! Happy New Year! I hope you are as stoked as I am for 2014! I know it will be a great year!

My class schedule has changed a bit here at the beginning of the year, so please take a look at it.

Thursday outdoor classes are on hold for the winter and will resume late February or early March.

Monday’s flow class at Windward Family Wellness center in Kaneohe has been moved from 6:00pm to 6:15pm to accommodate folks coming from town and getting stuck in traffic.

Tuesday and Wednesday classes at Aloha Yoga Kula in Kailua are still the same. Both classes are at the Aikahi Studio (38 Kaneohe Bay Dr., in the back of the church across from Safeway), Tuesdays are 6:15-7:30pm, Wednesdays are 7:00-8:30pm.

Hope to see you in class soon!

Namaste!

Yoga at Kailua Intermediate School

I am happy to announce that there will soon be two yoga classes at Kailua Intermediate School! Thanks to Julianne King, a wonderful parent there and my friend Traci Potterf, another wonderful yoga teacher at Aloha Yoga Kula, I have the amazing opportunity to bring yoga to both the students at KIS and the teachers and staff as well. Both classes will be held on Friday afternoons starting October 18th. The kids class will be from 2:30 til 3:30pm and the adults will be from 3:40-4:40. If you know a student or staff member at KIS who might be interested, please pass my info along. To register for either class, please e-mail me at gin@yogawithgin.com

Here’s to my first regular group kids yoga class! :)

Two Amazing Workshops This Weekend!

My teacher training was one of the most wonderful experiences of my life. Oahu is lucky this weekend because Jennifer Lynn, the teacher I did my teacher training with, will be here to hold 2 workshops. The first is a core integration workshop, the second is an inversion workshop. I have no doubt that both will completely alter your yoga practice, if not, in fact, your life! ;)

The workshops are being held at the following studios and times:

Moving From The Core: Moonstruck Yogi, downtown Honolulu Saturday May 4th, 10:30am-1:00pm

Moving From the Core: Aloha Yoga Kula, 1300 Kailua Rd., Kailua, Saturday May 4th, 2:30pm-5:30pm

Inversion Playshop: Aloha Yoga Kula, 1300 Kailua Rd., Kailua, Saturday May 5th, 2:30pm-5:30pm

I will be at the Core workshop on Saturday at Aloha Yoga Kula. Hope to see you all there!

Sunset Yoga Thursdays Starts Up Again March 7th!!!

So excited to start my outdoor Thursday Night Sunset Yoga sessions once again this Thursday, March 7th at 5:45pm. Class has been on hiatus for the winter, as the days get dark too quick and the rainy season causes frequent cancels, but that time is over…YAY!!!

If you’ve never joined me for Sunset Yoga in the park before, you are in for a treat. We meet up on the big hill above the amphitheater. To find us, as you come in to park, drive to the far right side corner of the lot, then follow the pathway out of the parking lot from that corner to the right. You will run into the concrete of the amphitheater, then can turn up the hill towards the ocean and you should see us there.

This class is an ALL LEVELS and ALL ABILITIES class!!! If you’ve never been to yoga before, no big deal, this is a great class to start with! IF you’ve been to yoga a bit this is a great class to continue to develop your practice. If you’re a seasoned yogi, this is a great class to add to your practice. We practice with conscious alignment while moving through fun flow sequences and find joy in our bodies and the beauty and wonder of nature. How’s that for a promise for a yoga class?! ;)

All my outdoor classes are donation-based. Suggested donation: $5-$15.

In case you need a map: Kaka’ako Waterfront Park

Hope you can join us. Contact me by e-mail if you have any questions: gin@yogawithgin.com

Feel good. Live well. Be happy!

Namaste.

Gin Joins Aloha Yoga Kula! New Vinyasa Class Tuesdays 5:15pm!

I’ve always loved Aloha Yoga Kula. Their two studios in Kailua are gorgeous and the owners and instructors are all so sweet. I’ve enjoyed subbing there for some time as well and the students there have been absolutely wonderful as well. I’m very excited to say, I have my own class at Aloha Yoga Kula’s Aikahi studio now. Tuesdays at 5:15pm, I will be teaching a vinyasa class. Vinyasa classes at the studio are more advanced and as such knowledge of yoga is suggested, but as always, I’m happy to teach to any level. If you have a question about whether or not the class would be right for you, please e-mail or call me. Hope to see some of you at this great space for this fun new class!

Subbing at Aloha Yoga Kula Wednesdays for the month of August!

Aloha yogis and yoginis!

I’m happy to announce that I will be subbing for Brigitte at Aloha Yoha Kula for the month of August on Wednesdays from 7:00-8:30pm. It is a vinyasa class, so we’ll move along pretty well as we go through our practice.

Brigitte is one of the best yoga teachers on the island, so I am very honored to be subbing for her and getting to know and enjoy yoga with her students. Her studios in Kailua are also two of my favorite spaces for yoga on the island, so it will be fun being there.

The classes I am teaching are at the Aikahi Stuio, located in Windward United Church of Christ at 38 Kaneohe Bay Drive. Hope some of you can come join us for what should be some really fun, challenging classes.

Happy 2012!

Aloha Yogis! Hope 2012 is treating you all well so far!

A few updates are in order regarding the schedule of classes.

Monday’s class at Windward Family Wellness Center is now from 6:00pm-7:15pm.

Thursdays at Kaka’ako Waterfront Park will start again Thursday February 2nd at 5:30pm. This class was on hiatus due to the Winter time shift and it getting dark too early for us to hold class after most people get off work. I’m excited to have this fun outdoor class starting again.

Two more classes, a Sunday evening outdoor class and a Friday lunchtime class should be added at the beginning of February as well. Stay tuned for details on those.

Please check the Schedule Page for the most up to date information.

Windward Side Monday Class Moves to 5:30 Starting in September

Originally there was another class after us in the space, but now things have opened up, so I have decided to move our Monday class to 5:30 instead of 5 to allow folks more time to get there from work and battle traffic. If you’re coming down Kahekili, don’t be intimidated by the traffic…it’s not as bad as it looks. Hope to see you all there at 5:30 on Monday at Windward Family Wellness Center in the Ko’olau Shopping Center near Times.
