About the Facilitator(s)

Gena Kenny

Gena Kenny

Gena has worked in the health and fitness industry as a lecturer and instructor for 18 years. She has taught yoga to such diverse groups as elite athletes, corporate groups, senior citizens and those seeking improved flexibility and strength and mind awareness.

`Ohana Yoga weaves together the spirit of polynesia and a hatha style of yoga. Combining breath, postures, relaxation and meditation which all aim to quiet your mind and bring renewed energy to your entire being.

My connection to Hawaii and the spirit of Polynesia comes from a twenty year history of paddling outrigger canoes. Through my many travels to Hawaii, I have had the opportunity to discover the magic of the Polynesian Islands and peoples. In essence the spirit of the islands is "Aloha", which means to be kind, nurturing and loving to yourself, to others and to the planet.

The creation of "`Ohana Yoga" comes from blending this 'magic' and 'spirit' into my own unique style of teaching. Gena has also authored a book and dvd "The Gift of Yoga".
