Hawaii Blue Hands on Kehena Beach
Accoding to the Mayan Calendar, Blue Hands represent the 'beauty way', the ability to see intrinsic beauty within yourself and in all things. Living the beauty way requires being in your full beauty and power. From this place, your self-authority naturally flows. This is the position where your ego is aligned with divine will. When you are standing in your full beauty and power, your very presence invites others to be all that they are. To the Maya, Blue Hands represent the deer, the gentle, serenely aware guide who walks in fluid beauty and grace, opening and revealing.
Blue Hand people are natural healers. Maxwell, jaRed and Dennis are all Blue Hands.
About the Facilitator(s)
Maxwell is a massage therapist, dancer, poet, musician, artist and world-traveling yogi. He was first introduced to yoga by his mother when he was a young child and has been interested in alternative medicine and healing arts ever since.
He has studied with different teachers around the world such as Kathy Elder, Shiva Rea, Lino Miele and Duncan Wong. He received his yoga teacher training certificate in 2003 at Kalani Honua in Hawaii. He is influenced by many different styles of yoga and martial arts such as: hatha yoga, ashtanga yoga, yin yoga, vinyasa yoga , restorative yoga , capoiera, tai chi, and Kuk Sol Korean Buddhist martial arts. He spent five months travelling India deepening his practice of yoga.
Dennis agrees with Pattabhi Jois' statement in the movie Enlighten Up that the main goal of yoga is to discipline the mind. Dennis feels that Kundalini Yoga is one of the most effective, fun and quickest methods to practice the art of disciplining the mind.
His approach is gentle and focuses on opening up the energy centers in the body with Kundalini Yoga exercises. He has studied with Kundalini master Gurmukh and completed Yogi Bhajan's Kundalini Teacher Training. His classes are invigorating, grounding, intuitive, fun and leave you feeling centered, calm and smiling.
jaRed has been learning, deepening and sharing his yoga flow practice at Kalani for the past eight years. He first discovered his yoga body through the primary series with Pamela Richardson in the summer of '97. He graduated from Kathy Elder's original yoga teacher training class in 2001 and has since deepened his understanding of teaching vinyasa flow yoga through intensives with Duncan Wong and Shiva Rea.
He has felt honored and inspired by the teachings of Shiva, Kathy, Duncan, Saul David Raye and many others. He continues to hold a sacred space for breath, gratitude, yoga and love in his weekly classes at Kalani Oceanside Retreat.
