Aloha! 

I am so excited to be only a few days away from starting my 2018 tour! I feel so blessed to have connections all over this precious planet. I will be making a large loop on Moku Honu, Turtle Island, the North American Continent. It has been a very special year for Big Island Therapy here in Hilo. Thanks to the wonderful support from the BIYT interns Amanda Alvarado, Estelle Cruse and Rebecca Rubenstein, our programs have been running to support our community with scoliosis and spinal fusion, those living with anxiety and depression, and extending yoga to women who are incarcerated. A big Mahalo to you all, I couldn't do this all without you! 

Our programs will resume in mid October and emails will go out to those who request more info in September. We are also thrilled to announce that Estelle is taking what she has learned in her internship to support people in West Hawai'i with scoliosis and spinal fusion with yoga. To get on our Scoliosis and Spinal Fusion mailing list for East or West Hawaii, contact Estelle here!

While I am away, Rebecca will be teaching my by-donation Therapeutics Class at Aloha Wellness Center (239 Haili St) in Hilo. Thursdays 5:30-7pm  AUG 16-OCT 4. If you are interested in more information about our Yoga for Anxiety and Depression series, contact Rebecca here or drop in on a Thursday and meet her! 

Below you will find my tour sites with links to the places that are hosting me. And below that fliers for August workshops with details about what I'm sharing at each stop. There are lots of Continuing Education opportunities for Teachers, and lots of beginner friendly sessions. And, as always, BIYT workshops are offered by suggested donation whenever possible, because we do not believe cost should be a deterring factor in physical and spiritual healing.
