Aloha! I am Estelle and I welcome you to join me in cultivating connection with our minds and our bodies so that we might live life to our fullest potential through the practice of yoga.
I discovered a passion for yoga at the age of 20. During a challenging time in my life I starting to practice Asanas (postures) regularly. Yoga helped me to heal. I decided to deepen my knowledge and pursue a yoga education, without the intention to become a teacher. However, when the opportunity to teach arose, I decided to do it and I am so very glad I did. My own Asana practice is so beneficial to my health and well-being, I want to share this experience with my community. It was because of practicing yoga Asanas and Pranayamas (breathing techniques) that I realized the tension and discomfort from scoliosis were greatly reduced. It changed my life in a significant positive way and showed me that healing my own body, mind, and spirit was within my own power.
Whether you are looking to rehabilitate a specific injury or physical limitation, to feel more connected to your Dharma (your life’s purpose) or to awaken your spiritual connection, yoga has tools to support you and I am honored to assist you on this journey. Together we will work to bring the body, mind and spirit into balance.
My teacher training began on the beautiful Big Island of Hawaii at Hawaiian Healing Yoga with Stacey Lanterman in 2014 where I completed 200 RYT Certification. Since 2015, I have pursued further education in Yoga Therapy with a focus on Scoliosis and physical injury and limitation. In 2015, I trained with Elise Browning Miller in Vancouver, Canada at a Yoga for Scoliosis Workshop. I lead Yoga for Scoliosis Series and workshops as well as private lessons. In 2018, I trained with Katy Benjamin of Big Island Yoga Therapy who has a C-IAYT (Certified International Association of Yoga Therapy) and I am forever grateful for her extensive knowledge and training. Most recently I trained under the guidance of Julie Martin, creator of Brahami Yoga, on level 2 training where we studied sequencing, rounds, new postures, fascia and anatomy. I have been fortunate to train with some amazing teachers that have deepened my knowledge of the healing benefits of Yoga. I am excited to pass on this wisdom and empower my students movement towards balancing their lives both on and off the mat!
If you have any questions please don’t be shy, I’d love to hear from you!
All walks of life, spiritual beliefs, levels and bodies are welcome!
