KAHANA YOGA

Tiare Kahana has combined her passion for both hula and yoga to share the benefits of healing, pain management, improved health, and overall well-being.  Students leave class relaxed, yet energized, and in “an island state of mind.” Kahana Yoga classes include: gentle yoga postures, breathing and relaxation techniques, basic meditation,  mindful dance movements of Hawaii’s oral language tradition, known as hula, and the wisdom of ancient of yogic and Hawaiian philosophy. Hula Noho (seated hula) and chair yoga formats are offered so that this class is accessible to all levels.

 

Students learn:

  • about Hawaiian culture and way of life; and the true meaning of Aloha
  • how to “be” [present], breathe consciously, and let go of what is unnecessary
  • how to move mindfully, and pain-free, with calm and ease
  • how subtle shifts, both mentally and physically, can make all the difference
  • how to explore the power of centering, for balance, stability, and strength
  • How to harness, facilitate, and channel positive energy (prana, chi, qi, “mana”-in Hawaiian) from nature to promote healing and well-being
