About the Facilitator(s)

Liz Heffernan, MA, E-RYT, PYT-1000, Integrative Yoga Therapy® (IYT) primary faculty member, is a certified IYT Therapist and yoga instructor of over 17 years. Liz brings a passion for therapeutics and extensive experience in the Hatha yoga systems of Kripalu, Ashtanga and Anusara. Her vision is to inspire teachers to share the healing practices of yoga with those motivated to seek a path of self-discovery and self-care.  Through a comprehensive application of bio-mechanical principles of alignment for deep therapeutic work, a strong focus on the breath and a heart expanding philosophy, she inspires her students toward greater degrees of freedom in body, mind and in spirit.


Molly Masaoka, E-RYT, Owner Yoga Centered, Yoga Teacher Training Faculty

Innately perceptive beyond her years, and wildly passionate about everything in her path, Molly applies a level of determination and delight that is truly one of a kind.   Her unique teaching style is both intense and focused but lightened with creativity, compassion and humor.  She believes that this balance of effort and surrender is the key to unlocking the awareness of ones true nature. A student of yoga since the age of 16, Molly has studied intensely with Chuck Miller, and completed teacher trainings with Annie Carpenter and Don Stapelton.  She credits Annie for giving her the skills to teach intentional alignment and sequencing, Don for the ability to encourage self-inquiry and Chuck for finding the unity in all things.  In addition to leading teacher trainings, workshops and retreats, Molly also owns Yoga Centered Studio and Boutique in Hilo, Hawaii. She is an influential member of her yoga community and serves as a mentor to both students and other teachers.  Ultimately she hopes to inspire others to share the practices of yoga that have so positively impacted her life.

 Dr. Sharon Karayianis, MD attended medical school in Greece and practiced Pathology for 12 years. During that time she began teaching hatha yoga and studying Ayurveda part-time. In 1999 she made a change that she affectionately calls her "from death to life" transformation when she left the practice of Western medicine to study Ayurveda full-time with Dr. Vasant Lad in Albuquerque, NM. She spent 4 years at the Ayurvedic Institute as a student, yoga teacher and consultant in the Panchakarma Department. Two years teaching yoga in an ashram in India completed her life change and brought her home to the Big Island in 2005. She offers group and private classes and Ayurvedic lifestyle counseling.

•Your true calling

•A personal statement of your life’s intention

•Developing your new paradigm for earning, and collaboration

•How to communicate your life’s work and service

About the Facilitator(s)

Joy Ravelli started her business when she was 20 years old while pregnant with her first child, Nicholai. She dropped out of college where she had almost completed her Health Education degree and began to spend her time within the college by providing fitness, health, and nutrition coaching to the staff and students. Soon Joy was leading her "Health In Motion" programs at several colleges and corporations throughout Massachusetts. She had her second child, Alexander, at the age of 23. She ran this business successfully in Massachusetts for 20 years. In 1999 Joy took her life long passion for Yoga into the center of her offerings and in 2004 while pregnant with her third child, Maleeha she created the Purusha Yoga School. The Purusha Yoga School has graduated over 300 students in both 200 hour and 500 hour Yoga Alliance and International Association of Yoga Therapists Recognized programs.

Family SkiingJoy founded the Purusha Seva Project i2008. The Purusha Seva Project became a 501C-3 Non-Profit organization in 2009. Joy says, "I wanted to create a vehicle..." (click here to continue reading about the Purusha Seva Project)

Joy completed writing a practical guide to the Yoga Sutras in 2009 and looks forward to it being published soon. She is currently writing other practical guides for her students to navigate their way through the Upanishads and the Bhagavad Gita. "Writing helps me to understand these practices and has always been a way of expressing my deeper ideas and feelings."

Joy opened the Purusha Yoga Studio in San Francisco in 2011 as a way of providing opportunities for her teachers to share and grow while also nourishing a local community with a wide variety of classes, programs, and a place to gather and celebrate together.

The true spark of light that ignited the studio was the death of her son Alex in 2009.

"Alex has always been a source of great inspiration and guidance in this life. He continues to help me and our community understand the truth that is beyond our small perspective and seek the light and love of an existence without fear, hatred, and worry. Ultimately- my children have and always will be my greatest teachers, for they have taught me to let go of fear and let it all be love."

This is the true path of yoga: to let go of our head trip and connect to what is real. In the end there is only love.

Joy is certified in the following modalities:

  • Personal Trainer (ACE, AFFA)
  • Pilates (Physical Mind Institute)
  • Yoga (Frog Pond School, RYT 500 Yoga Alliance)
  • Thai Yoga Bodywork (Sunset Network, Thailand

He graduated from Tribhuvan in 2009 with a B.A. in English Education.

Lillian So has been in the fitness industry for over 10 years. She started out as a personal trainer and noticed something was missing. She began a personal practice of yoga 7 years ago and found that the ease and truth she discovered on that path was one she wanted to share with her clients. Lil says "yoga allows me to integrate my life, client relationships, passions, and also helps to focus the mind and embody a truth that is essential to overall quality of life. I want my clients to push hard, sweat hard, have fun, and know that life and a workout does not have to be taken so seriously."
