The most important thing to Anya is you leave class feeling connected to your heart and the island of Kauai.
A classically trained ballet dancer from Russia and long-time yoga instructor, Anya relishes the balance that yoga brings to the mind and body.
She enjoys helping people heal and release their pain. With over 10 years of teaching experience, Anya guides people from all paths to move in harmony with their bodies. She passionately believes in the abilities of yoga and nature to heal the body and to caress the spirit.
Anya was inspired to teach after the birth of her daughter. Yin yoga helped Anya manage the pain post child birth from a hip injury that drugs could not heal. Yoga is more than movement – the mental journey is tightly woven with the physical. She delights in helping children and adult beginners discover yoga. Anya is blessed to share with others the gentle approach of yoga to life.
Will Glass began his journey as a yoga teacher in 2007 in Phoenix, Arizona. In just a few months he was on the schedule at the Valley’s hottest Vinyasa studios such as Modern Yoga, Lifepower Yoga and Montelucia Resort. After visiting the Island of Kauai every year for half a decade, Will realized his heart belonged in a more peaceful setting.. Setting his intention on relocating his family to Hawaii, Will moved in the winter of 2017 and has since taught regularly on the beach at Kauai Shore Hotel. Will teaches a variety of levels and specializes in leading practitioners in his “Will Power” class that blends a variety of asana and calisthenics to help students lengthen, strengthen, balance and breathe.
Yoga has been a healing part of Alexandria’s life for over 12 years. After moving from the Chicago tundra to the uplifting sunshine of Phoenix, she committed to an 800hr. Yoga Master program at the Award-Winning Southwest Institute of Healing Arts where she got certified in various forms of yoga, holistic nutrition, and life coaching.
She stresses the importance of practicing yoga on & off the mat… being conscious of what we absorb & our footprint we leave behind. Yoga is mindfulness and connection… so the island life of Kauai started calling. In the short time she’s been here, she’s been teaching yoga around the island and is involved in a handful of non-profits that support the community… creating #YOGAwithaCAUSE
You can find her on Wailua River teaching SUP Yoga, leading a pre-beach clean-up yoga class, or surfing when she’s not adventuring the island. This year she’s a proud member organizing ALOHA Kauai Yoga & Peace Festival with our founder & visionary, Anya Love. Teaching Yoga on the Beach has opened opportunity, friendships, & her heart to Mama Kauai.
