About Ohana Yoga Studio

Welcome to Ohana Yoga

Ohana Yoga serves as educational experiences to those wanting to include mindful practices into their lifestyle.

How we move, how we think,  how we breathe and how we speak are innervated into our sense of wellbeing and safety, right down to the cells. The body always reacts with or without your consent.  Sometimes these reactions make sense, and other times our lives can be turned upside down. When life becomes stressful, it asserts an unmanageable response to how day to day activities affect us.  It usually is because we are not prepared for ALL the variabilities of what could happen. Since we can never prepare for everything that could be presented in front of us, the only thing we can do is begin to train the body to react in a more conscious place of awareness.  To teach it to know the extremes of softness and strength, stress and rest. To understand subtle sensations and where the push and pull is in your life.   
We are available to supply opportunities for this training and education, through classes and programs, in two ways:  In the local studio OR online through our various options.

Ohana Motivational Cards

Ohana Life Oracle Deck Instructions

I pride myself on my daily practices to help stay focused, driven, organized and strong. This is one piece of it: my mental strategy for the day. This is an important step for me each morning to keep my positivity during the day.
As I show up each day for my family and friends, below are some of the activities that are my staple to get through life.

  • Reading inspirational texts
  • Continuously educating
  • Surrounding myself with amazing people
  • Daily Journaling
  • Meditation
  • Daily Exercise
  • Positive thoughts
  • Create my destiny through vision
  • Using a good planner
  • Using my time creatively and wisely

The list goes on and on….

This is the first of a product line coming out as a compliment to help YOU stay motivated and aligned with your highest self. A way for you to seek deeper intuitive knowledge.

We have many products in store for you to adequately manifest and craft an affirming positive life.

You can pick one card a day or more! Keep them by your altar, or in the main room in your house!  As a parent kids could pick one a day and display it in the kitchen. I used to do this with the kids!  Gifts to house guests, holidays, or birthdays. As a therapist, have clients pick a card each visit.

Recent Testimonial

“It’s hard to put into words all the love and gratitude I have for you.  You have brought so much joy and fulfillment into my life.  I learn new things from you every day including increased body awareness, novel ways to move my body, wellness practices, kindness and altruism.  Your consistency in everything you do is inspiring.  You and daily yoga have given me hope and optimism for the future.  Rather than focusing on the external world, I am learning that I have inner strength and can use it positively to influence my own life.  And it’s working!  You are the reason I am experiencing deep feelings of peace and calmness.  Thank you Lisa. “
