About the Facilitator(s)

Gena Kenny

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".

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.

Culture Journey into ALOHA & Ho'oponopono

Pono Nicole Stadler

About the Facilitator(s)

 

Ten years ago I came to Hawai'i for the first time, feeling home right away. The depth of the hawaiian spirituality and insights of living Aloha every day, changed my life ever more. taught by a hawaiian Elder I learnt about the history of these islands and met several Kahunas, Shamans who taught me chants in order to open the energy. I am blessed to be facilitating this workshop with a 2 days Intensive of Ho'oponopono introducing Kahuna Harry Uhane Jim, his humor and sharing his wisdom can be a revelation for everybody in this circle. I see myself as being the Rainbow - anue'nue in hawaiian language - for people interested in hawaiian history, culture and rituals. PELE has been my companion since i came the very first time, she inspires me also in creating art on silk, see www.PonoArts.com. We will as a group create an offering for HER and visit her island home.

 

Mahalo and hope to meet you in paradise! Aloha!
