Born and raised in sunny Los Angeles, Malia journeyed to NYC in pursuit of acting, music, spirituality and yoga. Malia first fell in love with yoga while stumbling upon a groupon for Bikram Yoga in 2010. She then transitioned to CorePower Yoga where she deepened her practice in alignment and physical strength. With a passion for something deeper than the physical aspects of yoga, she dove into her teacher training with a more expansive and spiritual guidance. She received her certification on the beaches of Chacala, Mexico under Katie Silcox and Meridith Hogan through the lineage of Para Yoga and now continues to train with ISHTA Yoga. With a passion for giving the gift and knowledge of this lineage, she incorporates Hatha, Tantra, and Ayurveda. Inspired by the idea that every individual has a purpose or dharma to live by, Malia believes we all have boundless potential! We are all beautiful beings xo.
