LYNN_MOFFITT

Lynn Moffitt Wilson

Lynn has been teaching yoga internationally since 1991. Extensive study of Iyengar, Ashtanga and Bikram methods of Hatha Yoga brought Lynn to her first certification from Yogiraj Behramji of Bombay, India. Bikram Choudhury of Calcutta, India taught Lynn through an immersion method of one-on-one teacher/student in the classical tradition.

 

Lynn introduced the Bikram process to her hometown of Kansas City in the early 1990s and brought it to Hanelai in 1997. Studies of anatomy, physiology and biochemistry of Yoga and its therapeutic effects, combined with her diverse yoga background, contribute to a well-rounded, sensitive teaching style with attention to detail which her students appreciate.

 

After moving to Kauai, Lynn co-founded Yoga Hanalei in 1999 and opened Princeville Yoga in 2009. Sharing residences in Montana and Kauai, she enjoys reconnecting with the Island yoga community both practicing and teaching.

Hot yoga is the healing modality I use as my diagnostic tool to check-in and take and honest look at what is going on inside of me physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. It is a process of self-discovery using traditional therapeutic hatha yoga postures.

 

When I walk into class, the constant is ALWAYS the yoga and the variable is ALWAYS the connection between my body and my mind. The more I practice the more I appreciate the intelligent design of the series and the brilliance of the perfectly placed savasanas between each posture. Savasana holds the light and still ness where we are all one. Savasana births each inspired asana and together with the breath grows the posture into the leading edge of the present moment, within our physical time/space reality. It is absolutely fascinating!

All she wants to do is dance! Before my mother encouraged me to attend formal dance classes. I use to dance everywhere all the time. I found my soul at the Youth Performing Arts High School in Louisville Ky. i.e.(YPAS) We were professionals in training and began touring the world on our Spring Break holidays. I sustained a harsh injury to the back of my left thigh muscle (hamstring).  I had several injuries all over the left side of my body but it was a tear to my left MCL that lead to the end of my dance career.
One day with friend’s suggestion I took my first Bikram Yoga class in Manhattan.This became my sweet hot haven in a tiny Soho Studio. My injuries were more manageable. I said goodbye to those toxic painkillers.
Nowadays my body is very happy in and out of the hot room. It is such a gift of the universe to be able to share this practice with people everywhere I go. I am constantly intrigued by the super freakish high people to get from their daily hot yoga sessions that this yoga really works. I am excited to share my unique understanding and passion for this practice with my students. I look forward to helping many more yogis discover the healing benefits of this Hot yoga.

Marcia

Marcia Biasi-Folkertsma

Marcia started practicing Bikram yoga 15 years ago in Paradise Valley, Az. She had wanted to go to BIkram yoga teacher training shortly after she began practicing. After moving to Kauai in 2010 the opportunity presented itself. And in 2012 she completed her training in in La. She says, “It was one of the most challenging, life changing experiences of my life!”

She put her training to good use after tearing her ACL & MCL in a downhill skiing accident in 2009. It was a long recovery period of doing only what her body would allow, one day at a time, for many months. She opted out of surgery and it has healed 99%. “It’s so exciting to have watched my students persevere and heal their ailments through their yoga practice, that’s why we’re here to heal one another”.Marcia has been recently diagnosed with osteoarthritis in her hips and an auto-immune disease called Hashimoto’s. After pushing her body to the limits with body building, running, and hiking her new motto is “Less is definitely more!”

Overall, yoga has been her go to for relieving stress, depression, aches, pains, weight management, healing of mind, body and soul. “Let’s show up, have some fun and support one another through our practices”.

 Laura DeAmorim

Yoga has been a passion and a life path for me ever since I first stepped into a yoga studio. I love yoga because of how in touch with myself I feel when I practice. I want to teach to spread the medicine of yoga and heal others. I’ve been teaching yoga on and off for 3 years.

I received my 200 hr teacher training from Jessie Fletcher, founder of Dorje yoga. She teaches traditional eastern yoga based off Ayurveda, the sister science to yoga. This style really focuses on strengthening and stretching our bodies and challenging ourselves physically, mentally and spiritually. This style of yoga really ignited my passion and I’m excited to share that in my yoga classes.
