Vaiva Winder

Aloha! I’m Vaiva! Originally from Lithuania, been on the island almost 5 years, a mother of two little girls. I got my yoga certification in India, first at Yoga Institute Santa Cruz Mumbai (200 hrs TTC in Classical Yoga), and later at Sampoorna Yoga School (200 hrs TTC Ashtanga Yoga), I also worked as yoga instructor in India before I moved to the US. I also read A LOT of books, love watching and reviewing movies. Very passionate about recycling and recycled fashion – in fact most of my clothes and furniture are second hand!  I found it quite hard to exercise after having kids and was looking for a space where I could bring them, until I decided to create one!

Patrick Kanahele

Patrick studied Tai Chi with Gregory Fong, a Tai Chi teacher from Hong Kong, in Portland, Oregon for over 10 years between 1979 and 1990. He intensively studied the Yang style, some Chen style, Hsingi style, and Standing Meditation. Born on the Big Island, Patrick left at 11 years old for the Alaskan bush, where he lived in Naknick, Kodyac, Katsibue, and Nome. Beginning at age 16, he studied boat building, which eventually brought him to Tacoma, Washington to gain further expertise in wooden sail boat building at Bates College. After returning to Hawai’i in 1990, Patrick reconnected with a great uncle who had been raised in traditional Hawaiian ways, and was a native Hawaiian speaker. From him, Patrick learned much Hawaiian language and culture, from constructing nets to performing Hawaiian ceremony. Patrick now resides in South Kona with his wife (and founder) Linde.
