About this pro

Inspiring yoga teacher who brings great energy, knowledge, and philosophy to each practice. An instructor who teaches a practice specific to the student or class. An ambitious student with an ongoing practice that started in 2012. Has the desire to complete 500 hours of teacher training, and in addition to her completed 200 hours is currently attending a 300 hour course through yogaworks.

Is also a hula hoop teacher. Hula hooping brings a creative way to not only express yourself, but to be fit and active while doing so.

I absolutly love sharing this sacred space with others. To be able to provide a safe enviornment for you to experience a fully engaged practice is beautiful.

    Aeilani provided me with an authentic yoga practice. She guided me as i delved deep into my spirit, allowing me to release of anything that no longer served me. Her kind voice and gentle touch created a comfortable environment to open my true self to. After her class I felt rejuvenated, refreshed and stronger than before.

    Aeilani is an exceptional instructor. Not only does she show passion behind what she does, she is knowledgeable in this field as well.


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

For yoga:

First we go over what brings you to the mat in the first place. Were you introduced to this practice because of an injusry? Did you want to learn more about yourself through yoga? Or do you just want to feel more embodied, and get your sweat on?

After we've discussed what brought you here, we talk more about what you want to get out of this practice. What is your overall goal?

Then, we assess our situation. I will take you through a short asana practice, and from there will make a sequence of poses that suits you.

For hula hooping:

Pretty similar to my yoga discussion, I will ask you 3 questions.

1. What brings you to the hoop? 2.Whats your overall goal? 3.what do you already know? Then, we go from there.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have 450 hours of yoga teacher training done. I have a 200 hour certificate of completance through yogaworks, and will be recieving my 300 hour certificate at the end of July.

I hold an ongoing practice that started when I was 15 years of age.

2 years of hula hooping

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

First time clients will recieve an assessment(the 3 things we go over before we start) and an hour and a half personal session for only $15.

Standard rate for an hour and a half personal session is $30.

Group session of 2 or more is $10 each person.

How did you get started teaching?

After graduating high school I felt stuck. I felt like I had no purpous in life, and it began to take a toll on my spirit. I turnede to my yoga practice to try to udnerstand what it is I can offer to the world. Then, it came to me!

I asked myself, "Why don't you share what you love to do with others?" and so.. I did! After realizing that I am capable of sharing this wonderful set of tools, I decided to take a 200 hour teacher training, and a few hula hoop workshops. From there, I was hooked!

What types of students have you worked with?

I've worked with a somewhat broad range of students.

From 20 year olds who have had an on going practice for years now, to 50 year olds who have never tried it before.

However, I have mostly taught students between the ages of 20-30, who have had some experience with yoga.

We call these practicioners level 1/2 students.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

A hula hoop/flow arts gathering in Santa Monica every Wednesdays.

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Look for a teacher who you can relate to. Someone who makes you feel safe. Find a teacher that can push you to your edges, but also allows you to back off when you need to.

You need someone who supports you, and lets you go through your process without any judgment.

I can be that teacher!

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

What brings you to the mat in the first place?
