Tasha Kauihou, Owner/ Director of YOGA4EWA has been in the fitness industry since 1997 as a certified Fitness Professional. She has been certified by ACE, NASM and APEX and she has been an avid yoga practitioner since 2002. After having her first child she was looking for a way to relieve stress and heal her body from the wear and tear of the competitive sports she had participated in previously. After her first yoga class with Char Nuessle, she knew this would be her calling and she continued to further her studies in yoga. In March 2006, she studied Ashtanga Yoga under Sri K. Pattabhi Jois of India, and Sharath Rangaswamy during their World Tour in San Francisco and in June of 2007 in Hong Kong at the Asia Yoga Conference. Tasha graduated from Yoga Hawaii's Teacher Training in July 2006 under the guidance of Tania Jo Ingram and Rupali Embry. She continues her studies with Nicki Doane and Eddie Modestini of Maya Yoga where she travels to Maui frequently. She would like to share her knowledge of yoga with all those who have a common quest of self realization.
