Functional Yoga

Functional Yoga

Our Still & Moving Yoga classes focus on functional movement, natural breath mechanics, and balance through grounding – all of which will serve you in daily life. Explore strength and freedom of movement in all ranges of motion with functional movement yoga classes online and in our Hawaii studio. Find increased ease and balance. As you move, you discover and celebrate your body’s innate intelligence. You find out how good it feels to flow from move to move in a full-body, integrated way. Using a listen-to-your-body approach to achieve genuine body satisfaction as the result. You’ll notice how these beneficial movement patterns help you unravel some of the habits and dysfunctional postures of our modern lifestyles.

When you hear the word “functional”, think of how our bodies function in daily life. Imagine feeling more comfortable and at ease in all of your movements. Imagine learning body alignments that allow you to more easily open heavy doors, lift ice chests or heavy grocery bags. Imagine getting up and down from chairs and couches, and getting in and out of the car with little effort, gracefully. Imagine getting down to feed your dog or cat, put on your shoes, or play with a child… and it’s no big deal. Imagine having the balance and strength to confidently climb a stepstool or ladder,and the range of motion to comfortably reach something off your closet shelf or up in your kitchen cupboard. These are some of the meaningful results you can approach with regular attendance at a Functional Yoga class.

These slow-paced, steady flow functional movement yoga classes and trainings enable students of all levels to engage in mindful movement. Functional movement patterns and sequences bring you towards better balance, coordination, strength and flexibility. Applying what you learn from these exercises will positively impact your quality of life and give you more energy and resilience during daily activities.

We believe that the littlest keiki can dance hula and have welcomed dancers as young as two weeks old!
Caregivers dance together with their keiki so that everybody learns something! Most hula are performed seated, so keiki can explore hula from the safety of a familiar lap. The 30 minute class time is just right for developing attention spans.
