"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 Classes
On YouTube or Together on Zoom
Yoga at home or by yourself is part of the sadhana (devotional practices) and commitment of aligning your life with something more subtle, more healthful, more mindful. Online yoga is also just sometimes more affordable and more flexible with your hectic schedule. As a mom on-the-go, I get you! You're invited to begin or dive deeper into your yoga practice with my YouTube channel "Qi & Prana - Yoga with Haunani"
Yoga in a commUNITY brings up a whole new set of reflections and teachings. Join me via Zoom for one of my next online yoga series.
Sacred Return Vinyasa Flow
Next 4 week series begins September - online via Zoom
Vinyasa means "to place with intention." In each class, the poses are mindfully selected to create a journey back to your sacred self. We will flow, breathe, sweat, and explore your body and mind's potential. Discover the edges of where your zen meets your badass and how to flow between these two empowering states of being. Classes integrate seasonal wisdom, acupressure, Chinese Medicine meridians, pranayama, meditation, and Ayurveda. Contact me to reserve your spot.
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.
