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.

Aloha ‘aina!

I returned from my trip to Belize last Wednesday, and I am so happy to be back home on Oahu. The trip was to work on some endangered coral that were spawning there. Midway through our research, we were evacuated due to Tropical Storm Harvey and we only were able to salvage about 1/4 of what we needed to do. I was reminded of the importance of flexibility, both in life and in body having to stay flexible with our plans and also trying to keep flexible in our bodies as the sleeping quarters took a toll on some (the only yoga class I was able to teach was a brief class to help our leader, Dr. Mary Hagedorn and her husband stretch out their backs that were sore). I also was reminded of the importance of surrender, that moment where you realize that you’ve done all you can and now things are out of your hands, having to leave our coral larvae during the evacuation and wait and see how they would be when we returned.

I taught my regular Thursday Kaka’ako class last week and was so happy to see quite a few of my students. I hope to see more of you all this week and get back into the swing of things teaching yoga.

Aloha ‘aina!!! It’s great to be home!

Off to Belize! (No classes until 8/25)

Well, I’m off to Belize for my “real job”. We’ll be at the Smithsonian Marine Station on Carrie Bow Caye, 14 miles off the coast of Belize with our fingers crosses that the staghorn coral there spawn. If they do, we’ll freeze their sperm and embryonic cells for future conservation efforts. Some friends from aquaria around the world will be there too to raise some coral babies, which will be awesome as well. I’ll be back on the 24th and yoga classes here in Hawaii will resume on the 25th. Until then…Aloha!
