About the Facilitator(s)

Liz Heffernan, MA, E-RYT, PYT-1000, Integrative Yoga Therapy® (IYT) primary faculty member, is a certified IYT Therapist and yoga instructor of over 17 years. Liz brings a passion for therapeutics and extensive experience in the Hatha yoga systems of Kripalu, Ashtanga and Anusara. Her vision is to inspire teachers to share the healing practices of yoga with those motivated to seek a path of self-discovery and self-care.  Through a comprehensive application of bio-mechanical principles of alignment for deep therapeutic work, a strong focus on the breath and a heart expanding philosophy, she inspires her students toward greater degrees of freedom in body, mind and in spirit.


Molly Masaoka, E-RYT, Owner Yoga Centered, Yoga Teacher Training Faculty

Innately perceptive beyond her years, and wildly passionate about everything in her path, Molly applies a level of determination and delight that is truly one of a kind. Her unique teaching style is both intense and focused but lightened with creativity, compassion and humor. She believes that this balance of effort and surrender is the key to unlocking the awareness of ones true nature. A student of yoga since the age of 16, Molly has studied intensely with Chuck Miller, and completed teacher trainings with Annie Carpenter and Don Stapelton. She credits Annie for giving her the skills to teach intentional alignment and sequencing, Don for the ability to encourage self-inquiry and Chuck for finding the unity in all things.  In addition to leading teacher trainings, workshops and retreats, Molly also owns Yoga Centered Studio and Boutique in Hilo, Hawaii. She is an influential member of her yoga community and serves as a mentor to both students and other teachers. Ultimately she hopes to inspire others to share the practices of yoga that have so positively impacted her life.

Dr. Sharon Karayianis, MD attended medical school in Greece and practiced Pathology for 12 years. During that time she began teaching hatha yoga and studying Ayurveda part-time. In 1999 she made a change that she affectionately calls her "from death to life" transformation when she left the practice of Western medicine to study Ayurveda full-time with Dr. Vasant Lad in Albuquerque, NM. She spent 4 years at the Ayurvedic Institute as a student, yoga teacher and consultant in the Panchakarma Department. Two years teaching yoga in an ashram in India completed her life change and brought her home to the Big Island in 2005. She offers group and private classes and Ayurvedic lifestyle counseling.

Yoga and the Art of Living: No Mountaintop Required

Daniel Stewart and Lori Snyder

January 26, 2015 - January 31, 2015

Every time we step on to our mat, we practice aligning our outer posture. But how do we align inwardly with our most awakened self? What happens when we unleash the full power of yoga’s potential to transform not just the body, but also the mind and heart? What happens when we commit to changing our perceived limitations into the truth of our highest growth and unfolding?

FREEDOM!!

About the Facilitator(s)

Aaron Lind

Acro Revolution Co-Founder & TT Facilitator

Aaron LindAaron is a renowned teacher of partner acrobatics and an advocate for empowerment through partnership! He has been fascinated by movement-based practices since childhood, which led to many thousands of hours of playful exploration. Aaron has explored and trained many thousands of hours of handstand, gymnastic movement, yoga, and partner acrobatics. He is also a musician, holding an MFA in Jazz Studies and a burlesque artist trained in the New Orleans tradition.

Lizzy Tomber

Acro Revolution Co-Founder & TT Facilitator

Lizzy TomberLizzy is life-long circus monkey and now a full-fledge MBA! From the time she could crawl she was monkeying around and was lucky enough to have an older brother that was in the circus. Throughout childhood, Lizzy loved gymnastics, acrobatics, and circus classes. Then like many people, she ‘became an adult’ and mostly forgot about these things until the universe sent her some amazing friends including Josh Young who awakened that inner-child-acrobat!    theyogimba.com

Josh Young

Acro Revolution Co-Founder, TT Facilitator, Founder of Acropedia, Peter Pan

Josh YoungJosh is happiest when he is empowering others to be the best version of themselves. He spends all of his free time flying everyone through hand-to-hand, washing machines, whips, and pops! When he is not tossing someone around, he is dorking out on cataloging every single acro washing machine, pose and transition. After spending years searching for acro videos on YouTube, Josh came up with the idea to build Acropedia.org: a free resource for acrobats everywhere. Not only does Josh have a deep love for high-level acrobatics, he also practices acropeutics, an inversion healing practice.

Sara Luke

Acro Revolution Co-Founder & TT Facilitator

Sara LukeSara is the official Acro Mama of the Acro Revolution Tribe. Her journey started when she found yoga at the age of 18. Yoga kept Sara grounded and connected to her breath, mind, and spirit. Sara began teaching yoga to her community, but she felt something was missing. Yoga, as traditionally taught, lacked connection with others. The day Sara found herself on top of someone’s feet, flying through the air with the support of another human being, her life changed forever. She immediately started to share a different approach to yoga, an approach with more fun, play, joy, and transformation. Sara is now lucky to share this practice with her love / husband / partner / co-teacher Whakapaingia and their baby girl, Tahi. Sara and her family travel around the world spreading the gift of joy, playfulness, and connection.   kohayoga.com

Whakapaingia David Luke

Acro Revolution Co-Founder & TT Facilitator

Whaka LukeWhaka is the spiritual heartbeat of the Acro Revolution tribe. Having always been a warrior and athlete, Whaka found the healing power of acropeutics and the joy of acrobatics when he was living in the US as a professional rugby player. In 2005, he started his healing journey after giving up his perception that yoga “was for girls” and not for tough guys. A few months into his practice, Whaka noticed his body recovered from tough rugby matches without the usual drugs or surgery. Through the path of yoga he learned to heal himself. Whaka then began to give this gift of healing to others by becoming a certified yoga teacher and thai massage practitioner.

Whaka found acro serendipitously on a beach when a women approached him and asked him if he wanted to fly. That woman became his wife, Sara. In one day Whaka found his life long passion and the person he would share that gift to the world with for the rest of his life. Whaka & Sara founded Koha Yoga in 2009. Koha is the Maori word for gift. Whaka & Sara travel around the world with their daughter Tahi, helping people discover the gifts of trust, joy, laughter, play, balance, and release through acro, acropeutics, yoga, and paddle-boarding.  kohayoga.com
