  • Eric Rosso

    Island: Oahu

    I am a 200 hour certified yoga instructor at Core Power Yoga. I have been teaching a fusion yoga class called Sculpt (yoga with weights) since 2013 and teach power vinyasa classes. I consider myself an athlete and have been involved in sports since a child playing football, baseball, basketball and even ballet. I excelled in football where I was recruited and played at Brown University. Today I keep myself active with lots of yoga, cycling, swimming, running, weight lifting and more yoga. Since I was young, one of my goals in life was to teach, but my passion to own and operate a marketing/advertising agency and raise two beautiful children took precedence. Today, fusing my passion to teach in the field of athletics is the ultimate job. To be able to aid in the physical and mental health of my community is the ultimate honor and privilege.

  • Erin Douglas

    Island: Oahu

    We gather together to unwind, to laugh, to practice yoga and to hopefully remember what is really important; that a single breath in this very moment is all that we really have. Erin started her lifelong yoga journey in 2005, while she was living in Southeast Asia. Upon taking a few classes, she realized that – while practicing yoga – she was able to quiet her mind. It quickly became her passion. Over the years, this passion for yoga transformed into a lifestyle as Erin incorporated yoga as an integral part of her health and wellness practice: My Intrinsic Wellness. As an active member of the alternative health community, Erin traveled across the globe to the remote town of Rishikesh, India to earn her 200-Hour Yoga Certification and became part of the well-respected Yoga Alliance. Erin’s Hatha classes focus on slow, deliberate movements that celebrate the union of body, soul and mind. 100% of all proceeds from her yoga classes are donated back to either the Hawaiian Humane Society or Stand for Trees.

She has also done extensive training with Yoga Therapist Robin Rothenberg, receiving certification to teach The Essential Low Back Program, and has facilitated relief from low back pain for many sufferers. Her other teachers include Leslie Kaminoff, as well as Nikki Meyers whom she just recently received certification as an Y12SR facilitator.

    Glen Butcher, owner of Purple Yoga Hawaii, has been practicing yoga for 28 years and teaching for 18 years. Originally from New Zealand, Glen’s foundation in yoga was in the Iyengar style. After moving to London he did a two-year apprenticeship at a yoga school that specialized in individual instruction in small groups. He went on to study Ashtanga Yoga with certified teacher John Scott and assist him in Mysore practice. While in London, Glen also began what would become a 10-year learning experience with Shandor Remete, the founder of Shadow Yoga, studying with him in Europe, Asia, Australia, and the US. Glen taught Shadow Yoga in Honolulu for seven years before resuming his practice and teaching of Ashtanga Yoga. His personal studies include an interest in the classic hatha yoga texts. Glen’s teaching draws on his broad experience of hatha yoga, including its rehabilitative powers following successive major knee surgeries he had as a result of a rugby injury. He guides each student through their own process of inquiry into the essence and practice of yoga, promoting a balance of ease and effort, and a celebration of what is possible, along the way. Visit

  • Hillary Agra

    Island: Oahu

    In 2007, Hillary Agra was dragged to her very first yoga class, and she practiced only to become more physically fit. Little did she know that her practice would evolve from just a physical practice to a mental, emotional and spiritual one. She practiced on and off until about a year ago when she struggled with self-limiting thoughts. It was at her lowest moment where she realized she needed to change her mindset and come back to her mat. Her mat was the one place where she felt like her truest self. She has kept a consistent practice through the Summer 2015 CorePower Yoga Teacher Training and hasn’t looked back since! She loves teaching yoga, practicing Pranayama breathing, finding stillness, and reading anything about yoga. She is also available for private and/or group yoga classes.
