About the Facilitator(s)

Lynne took her first yoga class while in college, at the YMCA in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. Her first instructor and mentor, Trudy Davis, encouraged her to teach when she moved to Alaska in 1977.  She enrolled in the Iyengar Yoga Institute of San Francisco’s Teacher Training Program the summer of 1980. Encouraged by Donald Moyer, she attended her first yoga Intensive at the Ramamani Iyengar Memorial Yoga Institute in Pune, India in 1981. She was certified to teach yoga by BKS Iyengar in 1984. Subsequent trips to Pune followed in 1988 and 1997.

Lynne founded the Inner Dance Yoga Studio in 1982 in Anchorage, Alaska and oversaw  its growth and development into a thriving center with 20 plus instructors for the next 26 years . She  started the Inner Dance Teacher Training program in 1999 which  trained over 100 yoga teachers in the 8 years of her  oversight of the program.   Lynne sold the Inner Dance Yoga Studio in 2008.   She now travels the country and the world teaching yoga wherever she is invited.

Lynne  draws inspiration from yoga on and off the mat,  attending local classes and  sharing practice with others .  She honors her  teachers of  the Iyengar  tradition, Judith Lasater, Donald Moyer,  and  Fr. Joe Pereira .   Self-Realizaion Fellowship, Paramahansa Yogananda's organization, to which she was first exposed in 1978 is another continuing source of upliftment.   

Yogananda says, "The true purpose of life is to realize one's Self as wisdom and bliss".   Patanjali's yoga sutra book II, sutra 41 (Light on Yoga Sutras, BKS Iyengar translation) states, " When the body is cleansed, the mind purified and the senses controlled, joyful awareness needed to realize the inner Self, also comes."  My mission statement is to help myself and others to awaken joyful awareness through the practices of yoga;   asanas that cleanse the body, pranayama that calms the mind, concentration that controls the senses, and meditation for realizing the Inner Self.

Lynne grew up in Wisconsin. Her love of travel and degree in Environmental Geology brought her to play and work in Alaska in 1975.  That year she met future husband, Jim , and together they made Alaska home. They have been married since 1978.  Together they enjoy camping, flying, overseas travel and their wonderful community of family and friends. Lynne also loves to sing, hula, play her ukelele,  garden, bike and hike. She is in the process of relocating to Prescott, Arizona.

Awakening Retreat

Hope Johnson, Tigmonk and Jill Walton

October 14, 2013 - October 20, 2013

Through sharing our wisdom, insight & personal experience we intend to arouse the eternal essence of pure Awareness - which leads to Awakening out of the dream of suffering, competition and dis-ease to a new perspective of unbounded creativity, harmonious relations, limitless abundance and profound compassion.

At the Retreat we will Offer:

* Daily Satsang with Tigmonk (tigmonk.com)

* Daily Interactions with Hope Johnson & Experiential Activities to evoke deeper intimacy with the Inner Guru

About the Facilitator(s)

Hope Johnson is a visionary and lover of Life who previously had her own story of personal and global suffering - which manifested as discontent in every aspect of her life.

After Hope began recognizing and applying the insight constantly being offered from beyond the mind, Hope’s life has consistently become, and continues to become a more creative expression in alignment with her heartfelt dreams and desires.

Through sharing the self she has become, the wisdom she has discovered along the way, and her personal experiences - Hope’s presence can arouse the Guru within those who are sincerely seeking to live their authenticity in this lifetime.

Many of the insights that led Hope along her path are freely shared at http://www.thewaytotheway.com/hawaii-retreat .

Tigmonk is a 31 year old modern day Mystic. His greatest joy is in sharing meaningful Insight & Wisdom with small groups of Sincere Individuals who seek a Sacred Truth. His Teachings go beyond mere intellect, and reach deep into the Heart; making it quite clear that real liberation from suffering & conflict, is a journey that begins and ends with our most Sincere Self.

He considers this unfolding to be a Blooming of the Heart; a natural occurrence that stems from a genuine desire to know what is True about the nature of Self & Reality.  He offers this warning to those who dare enter this space of exploration:
"I am here to peek inside the dream and set fire to the illusion of you, so that You might see clearly the nature of the Infinite You.”

Jill Walton 

Jill was born with an intuitive gift and a desire to be of service. At a young age she was sought out as a confidant and adviser. Throughout the years, Jill discovered that everyone had, within themselves, the abilities they needed to resolve their problems.

So she began focusing on helping people uncover their inner wisdom in order to empower them to become masters of their own wellbeing. With deep trust in her Guidance, Jill brings her experience, complete attention, full-bodied focus and keen intuition to every situation.

She offers a loving, compassionate, nonjudgmental environment to foster true and deep sharing. Jill presents new perspectives and possibilities that often open the way to empowerment, change, renewal, and inspiration.

About the Facilitator(s)

Gena Kenny

Gena Kenny

Gena has been teaching yoga for over 15 years. Her studies began with Jilda Liddicut of the Gaia School of Yoga. She has continued expanding her yoga studies under the guidance of internationally renowned teacher Donna Farhi. Her teaching focuses on nurturing from the inside – out. This approach allows students of all levels of experience and from all traditions to build their own authentic Yoga practice.

“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 her own unique style of teaching. Gena has also authored a book and dvd "The Gift of Yoga".

Kent Cuthbert

Kent has a lifelong passion for the outdoors and an active lifestyle. From participating in sports from an early age right up to competing in 5 Ironman Triathlon events Kent has continued to find reasons to be outside. After spending fifteen years as a professional in the corporate world he followed his passion and currently owns and operates Kayak Melbourne a tour business in Australia, and assists Gena as partner in Ohana Yoga & Wellness.

He loves to facilitate helping others get active and have memorable adventures, ensuring his groups have fun filled, safe experiences. He has worked with diverse groups at all levels of fitness and age groups from high school students to Corporate Teams. He has a wealth of fitness related knowledge and is a trained Pilates instructor
