Tasha has been in the fitness industry since 1997 as a certified Fitness Professional.  She has been certified by ACE, NASM and APEX and she has been an avid yoga practitioner since 2002.  After having her first child she was looking for a way to relieve stress and heal her body from the wear and tear of the competitive sports she had participated in previously.  After her first yoga class with Char Nuessle, she knew this would be her calling and she continued to further her studies in yoga. In March 2006, she studied Ashtanga Yoga under Sri K. Pattabhi Jois of India, and Sharath Rangaswamy during their World Tour in San Francisco and in June of 2007 in Hong Kong at the Asia Yoga Conference and just recently in New York of May 2017 with Pramaguru Sharath Rangaswamy.  Tasha graduated from Yoga Hawaii's Teacher Training under the guidance of Rupali Embry & Tania Jo Ingram in July 2006.  She continues her studies with Nicki Doane and Eddie Modestini of Maya Yoga where she travels to Maui frequently.   She enjoys sharing her knowledge of yoga with all those who have a common quest of self realization.

Learned how to simply BE  through yoga. She attended her first yoga class in 2010. Though reluctant to try yoga at first, Tina found self-rediscovery and a sense of new beginnings. The powerful transformational experience of yoga enriches her and helps her focus on her evolving life.  She received her 200 RYT through the  Wanderlust Teacher  Training Program under the teachers Kate Baldwin and Lilly Barels. Her practice and self discovery continues to grow through the  guidance and encouragement of her mentors Tasha Kauihou and Eden Monteilh.  Finding peace and contentment in her yoga practice has helped Tina realize the importance and value of making more classes available to her community. She has a gentle and light-hearted style to teaching and hopes to help others find their breath and simply BE.

Began her yoga journey in 2014 when she and her husband moved from Texas to Hawaii. She started yoga as a physical practice and then it transformed into a journey of self-awareness and acceptance. It helped her cope with the emotional stress of moving away from family and friends by allowing her to focus and BE in the present. "I discovered my truest, brightest self through yoga and want to give that to others through my teaching." Monique completed her 200 hr teacher training at YOGA4EWA under the guidance of Tasha Kauihou. She also holds a B.S. in Health Science. Monique's Vinyasa classes focus on moving with the breath to create awareness while building strength.
"What I love most about yoga is that there will always be another layer of greatness to discover about yourself."

Since then her practice has grown to include Vinyassa flow, Ashtanga, Yin, Restorative and Hatha. It has been a constant support system to help with everything from chronic joint pain to recovering from a major shoulder injury in 2014. She see's yoga as her medicine that helps her heal wounds from the past and enjoy life to the fullest.

Lisa began her yoga journey in 2012, a year after she first moved to Hawaii. She was having a difficult time living so far from home and her best friend had just moved from Hawaii back to the east coast. Yoga began as something she could do to get out of the house, a way to exercise and move her body. Through yoga, Lisa was able to find a community of people where she felt she fit in. Having always been a worrier and an over thinker, she found herself experiencing less anxiety and being able to get out of her head. After much thought and consideration, she decided to pursue her 200 hr Teacher Training at YOGA4EWA under the guidance of Tasha Kauihou. She would like to help people achieve the same peace that she found through yoga.

It wasn't until after the birth of her daughter that she fully discovered the amazing benefits of yoga as a whole mind and body practice.

She was able to rediscover herself and begin the next chapter of her life.
