Online Sacred Return Classes
"True yoga is not about the shape of your body, but the shape of your life. Yoga is not to be performed; yoga is to be lived."
Online Yoga Asana Classes
On YouTube or Together on Zoom
Yoga at home or by yourself is part of sadhana (personal devotional practices) and commitment to aligning your life with something more subtle, more healthful, more mindful. Yoga is a lived sacred tradition, not just an exercise. It takes time, commitment, and attention.
I provide free online classes on YouTube to offer you accessible and affordable relief, rejuvenation, and inspiration from your hectic schedule. As a mom-on-the-go, I get you!
Towards the beginning of your journey into mindful living and healing, I recommend working with an experienced teacher so you can get detailed and individualized recommendations for your unique body and any emotional and physical challenges. Please contact me if you're ready to make lasting change.
Sacred practices in a commUNITY bring up a whole new set of reflections and teachings. Join me via Zoom for one of my next online workshops or classes.

Sacred Return Classes with Haunani
6-week session, 1 classes per week
Description of class: The progression of each class is mindfully selected to create a journey back to your sacred self, to relieve stress, and to transform emotional and physical pain. We will use qi and prana cultivating practices to flow, breathe, sometimes sweat, and explore your body and mind's interconnectedness. Classes integrate seasonal wisdom, yoga asana, acupressure, Chinese Medicine meridians, mindful breathing, guided meditations, and Ayurveda.
New to Yoga?
Things you should know
You will move your body in new ways. Your body will be challenged. There may be discomfort but there should NEVER be pain (sharp, stabbing, intense, burning pain).
If you feel pain, please STOP. Get assistance.
You will also challenge your mind. To focus. To breathe. To become aware of the body and mind together.
Wear comfortable clothing. You will sweat.
Please avoid wearing strong scents, colognes, perfumes, and lotions.
Avoid smoking prior to and immediately after your yoga class.
Come on an empty stomach. If you must eat, please limit it to a piece of fruit, drink tea, or consume something easy to digest. Practicing on a full-stomach is not advised.
Because you're moving your body, breath, and mind in new ways, you may feel some type of emotional release. This shows up in many ways. Please DO NOT stuff it back inside. Let it out. Yoga class is a safe place for you to release this stored energy and allow the innate wisdom of your body and mind to heal.
Yoga heals with consistent, mindful, and unattached practice. The key is a regular practice. 10 minutes a day is better than one 60 minute class a week.
What to Bring
Things you'll need for your home practice
Yoga props are highly recommended. You can often find these at your local sporting goods store or on Amazon. What I recommend: 1-2 folded blankets or beach towels, 2 "blocks" (i.e. yoga blocks, books, or tupperware), and 1 "strap" (i.e. belt, tie, hand towel, or scarf). Note: if attending a studio or gym, these are usually provided by the facility.
