  • Anandra George

    Island: Kauai

    Anandra is a pioneer in the global yoga community, re-introducing the ancient practice of sound as a fundamental practice. She created the world’s first registered yoga teacher training based entirely on the transformational power of sound (including Sanskrit, mantra, Indian classical vocal meditation, and non-violent communication for everyday life). American by birth, Indian by soul, and global citizen by expression, she helps people transform their limiting belief systems and cultivate their most fulfilling contribution to the world. She divides her time between India, Japan, and on Kaua’i island, Hawaii, and teaches mantra workshops and intensives worldwide. For more than 20 years, she’s been on “the path” and has been teaching and seeing private clients since 1999. An internationally respected mantra teacher and sacred musician, she is frequently invited to teach and lead chanting/kīrtan at the world’s largest yoga festivals. Her students from online meditation groups, workshops, and teacher trainings speak highly about their experiences. From Anandra: I feel immeasurable gratitude to the thousands of people I’ve endeavored to serve in the past 20 years. I’ve had many fine, inspiring teachers and mentors, but YOU (my clients and students) top the list for teaching me the most… Earnest. Inspiring. Perfect even within all the messiness of life. Simply beautiful. What an honor it is to help bring out your best.

  • Audrey Brown

    Island: Oahu

    I began a dedicated, daily yoga practice by accident. I never expected to become so immersed in something, never mind yoga. I had this idea yoga was something I was simply incapable of; I am too inflexible, I am not graceful, I cannot be still, I have no time. Little did I know these doubts in my head were meant to be remedied with a yoga practice. The mental and physical benefits I saw from the practice drove me to enroll in and complete my teacher training in Madison, Wisconsin in the summer of 2015. In my small explorations of the vast universe that is yoga, I have found a diverse practice consisting of many different styles to be the most rewarding. I encourage each student to practice their own unique style of yoga to give and receive what they need from the practice. I graduated from UW-Madison in Wisconsin with a degree in creative writing and art. I believe the humanities, like yoga, has tremendous power to bring people together and revel in what makes each of us human. There’s a great power in studying what humans are capable of; to be able to turn our gaze inward, reflect on what we see, and be humbled and amazed. I am currently living in Honolulu teaching at a variety of places in Sculpt, Yin, Bhakti, and Power Yoga styles.

  • Bea Hirota

    Island: Oahu

    I was born and raised on the island of O`ahu, and love it here! I found yoga at Leeward Community College, took it as an elective, and it changed my life. Yoga resonated with me completely. The practice was difficult and engaging, but the philosophy shook my very being. I had an intermittent practice for about 10 years, during that time I had a family. I found myself back on my mat in 2010, and never looked back. I am certified with a 200RYT (2013) & a 500 RYT Advanced training (2015). I have experience in Vinyasa Flow, Yin Yoga, Restorative Yoga, Hatha Yoga, Meditation, and instruct while giving both verbal and hands-on adjustments. In the classes I instruct we chant, work on breath techniques, and have dharma talks. I’m a lucky gal, to live on this beautiful island, with my entire family, awesome friends, and teach yoga. I’m a student first and always learning from my teachers and my students. I continue to deepen my sādhana with my teachers, Lisa Asha Rapp, Manorama, and take classes with Nicki Doane and many other amazing local teachers on island. “By knowing the one, we know everything” -the Vedas
