Here’s a yoga class designed to be accessible, effective, and fun for every student. We focus on breath and alignment in basic poses, tailoring the class to the individual student’s physical needs, experience, and fitness level. By explaining poses step by step from the ground up, your teacher brings attention to body awareness, moving in and out of poses safely and comfortably, and connecting it all in a simple yet dynamic sequence.

Sarah Hodges

Doing yoga can transform physical and mental fatigue into a fresh flow of energy through the mind, body and spirit. Sarah made this discovery while laboriously studying in college. She felt yoga’s deep healing effects especially in the connection between breath and movement. This discovery, combined with her developing interests in philosophy and spirituality, led her into teaching yoga. As a lomilomi massage therapist, Sarah shares her gift of healing touch in her hands-on assists, which are always optional. 

Sarah’s mother first introduced her to yoga at age eleven at an Iyengar yoga class in east Oahu. Immediately it spoke to Sarah’s curiosity with movement. Over the following decade she continued to explore contemporary and classical dance, supplemented by yoga classes.

Gifted in many fields, Sarah also grew up riding horses, with whom awareness of body movement and subtle touch is critical for communication. She shares her artistic nature through dance, lomilomi massage, photography and fine arts.

Sarah is certified to give lomilomi massage under the legendary Uncle Alva of Waimanalo. She attended her Yoga Teacher Training with Tamal Dodge at Yoga Salt, Los Angeles.

We focus on breath and alignment in basic poses, tailoring the class to the individual student’s physical needs, experience, and fitness level. By explaining poses step by step from the ground up, Lee-Ann brings attention to body awareness, moving in and out of poses safely and comfortably, and connecting it all in a simple but dynamic sequence.

Lee-Ann Kong

Lee-Ann’s approach is fun and energetic. She encourages you to keep going even when you want to quit. Hey, you want to earn those fried foods credits for after class, right?!? When she coaches you to do your best, that doesn’t mean to do someone else’s best. We’re all here to get better, she reasons, so just push yourself to do a tiny bit better than you did before…and laugh your way through it! She reminds you to tune into your personal safety. You don’t need to do the full fancy pose – she gives you options to stay within your range of comfort.

Lee-Ann likes bringing to class crystals, candles, and essential oils for aromatherapy. She studies under a feng shui master learning how universal energy flow affects us on the personal level, and she bring that understanding to her practice and teaching of yoga.
