About the Facilitator(s)

Maxwell Stark-House

Maxwell is a yoga teacher; massage therapist, Dj, dancer and artist. He was first introduced to yoga and eastern practices by his mother when he was 10yrs. old and has been interested in alternative medicine and the healing arts ever since. He has studied with many different teachers around the world such as: Kathy Elder, Shiva Rea, Lino Miele, Daren Friesen, Les Leventhal, Duncan Wong and Liz Heffernan. He received his yoga teacher-training certificate in 2003 at Kalani Honua Oceanside Retreat Center on the Big Island of Hawaii, as well as his massage therapist license. He also received his aquatic bodywork license in 2009. Maxwell is the founder of Intuitive Yoga, an innovative approach to yoga that moves beyond the poses and into our own intuitive sense of what our body needs most at any given moment. He is currently teaching weekly classes of Intuitive Yoga, Yin Yoga and Intuitive Aquatic Movement at Kalani Honua.

Toby Gant

Toby discovered the innate ability to listen to Source in 1999.  This ignited a passion in him to teach others to tune in for themselves and expand into their full potential. Toby continued down this path by completing his M.Ed. in Counseling and Human Development in 2003 at Hardin-Simmons University and later studying Tantric Vinyasa yoga under Tracee Stanley in Topanga, CA.  He continues to expand his knowledge and connection through personal daily practices, workshops, and retreats. Toby is currently studying Reiki.  He has served as Director of Youth Prevention Programs for a rehabilitation center and as Director of Environmental Education for a children's science museum. Working in the fields of health and environmental education taught Toby to "practice what he preaches."  He created his business, Shekhinah Holistic, from his desire to help others discover their true essence, and thus, create balance, harmony, and fulfillment.  He focuses on the whole person, believing that a healthy body opens the pathway for a clear mind and infinite spiritual growth.  "When you take the Universe and its possibilities out of the box, you unlimit yourself."

Gena Kenny

“My connection to Hawaii and the spirit of Polynesia comes from a twenty year history of paddling outrigger canoes.

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.
