Every one of us is part of nature and we enjoy helping people to gain an awareness of their own true and fundamental nature as well as an awareness of the nature and others with which we share this planet. This involves not only spending time with ourselves, but also experiencing other places and cultures to learn more about the outside world in order to further develop our inside world.

He is currently based on the island of Oahu in Hawaii and has traveled and taught yoga to adults and children in many locations outside the U.S., including Costa Rica, Norway, and Thailand. Yogi Troy is also trained in Tai Chi Chuan, Reiki, and CranioSacral Therapy. He teaches a variety of beginner to advanced level classes. He loves to design his classes based on the yogis and yoginis who show up 'that' day for 'that' class. They have made a choice to be on their mat for a reason so he tries to cover a wide range of postures with a combination of quicker and slower movements. He likes to allow the yoga practitioners in his classes the time and place to really be in 'their' yoga and to create the space for their yoga experience.
Yoga found Troy when he was at a crossroads in his life and career working as a project manager and engineer on bridge and highway projects throughout the U.S. He decided to take a break from his career to travel, learn more about yoga and deepen his yoga practice. This decision has led Troy to thousands of hours teaching and training in many amazing places around the world. He is passionate about empowering students and helping them to find a yoga practice that is suitable for them. Yogi Troy is grateful to all of the teachers and students he has encountered on his journey and looks forward to many more. Learn more and 'Friend' him on
Krista first started practicing yoga while living in Australia in 2008. It quickly became the grounding force in her every day life and provided the space she needed to heal from decades of health challenges. The transformative power of yoga allowed her to pursue her passions and showed her the way to a more purposeful and meaningful life. She decided to share this gift with others and in 2012 attended Peak Beings Unified Yoga Teacher Training in Costa Rica and became a 200 Hour Registered Yoga Teacher. Since then she has continued to advance her yoga practice through further trainings and workshops including a 75 Hour Yin Yoga Training. Off the mat, Krista is a social entrepreneur based in Vancouver, B.C., Canada and is also a musician and lead singer in a band.
Lauren is a 200 Hour Registered Yoga Teacher through the Yoga Alliance and has been teaching since 2009. She continues to advance her knowledge through her regular practice, attending workshops, and maintaining passion for continued learning. She has taught yoga in studios, health clubs, and privately in New Orleans, Louisiana and currently in Honolulu, Hawaii.
Introduced to yoga ten years ago as a competitive, collegiate tennis player at Louisiana State University, yoga helped her feel more efficiency, power, flexibility, balance, and whole-body strength. She loves that yoga gives you whatever you need on that day: physical therapy, an invigorating challenge, calming stress relief, a practice of pure fun and expression, or a gentle practice when you want something healing. The practice has a way of creating a space for you to be exactly who you are in your own skin : open, devotional, raw, and real! It opens you up to deeper clarity, and reminds you how you want to live your life with joy, appreciation, purpose, and connection.
Born a natural yogi coming out of the womb, legs crossed like a lotus flower, Anjana rediscovered yoga around age 10 practicing with her mom. After losing interest for a while, she found herself coming back to yoga around age 19. It wouldn’t be long before she was traveling to Costa Rica, to obtain her Yoga Teaching Certification. Anjana walked away from the training with a sense of true purpose & power, something that needed to be expressed & brought out into the world to share.
"To me, yoga is about being yourself in a world that's always trying to change and mold you. It's a journey of living in freedom, authenticity, power, peace and awareness. Through conscious movement and breath, we find stillness - our unwavering, untouchable center. We find our source, our home within ourselves." The combination of Anjana's passion for yoga, music & movement gives rise to her creative and dynamic style, emphasizing fluidity, grace and power. Her journey to share is that of honoring and trusting the intelligence of one's own being and allowing that authenticity to be expressed freely. As we experience, explore and evolve, we expand beyond old limits toward our highest potential. Anjana is also a certified personal trainer.
Erin is an accomplished elite runner turned yogi due to a running injury and now understands the importance of balance. She was drawn to yoga after reaching a big turning point in her physical and emotional life. “Yoga was my saving grace,” she began to practice as much as possible and soon fell in love, so much that she decided to teach! Erin received her 200-hour certification in 2009 in beautiful and healing Costa Rica! She wanted to give to others what she had received from her yoga experience — curiosity of my own yoga experience, the art of receiving, healing, and most important, self-love! Erin ultimately found balance through her yoga experience and also what has become her yoga and massage therapy specialty — prevention of injury and balancing the mind, body, and soul.
