“Slowing down is the precursor to Yoga practice because this simple act allows us to consider our thoughts, feelings and actions more carefully in the light of our desire to live peacefully.”  – Donna Farhi : Bringing Yoga to Life

Gena Kenny has taught yoga for more than a decade; she has also authored the top selling ‘Gift of Yoga” book and dvd. Gena discovered yoga through an injury in her previous career as a firefighter. Yoga helped her to not only overcome her physical injury but also helped her to gain skills to make life changes and move forward on her true path.

Gena believes that life is our true place of practice, what you learn about yourself in the yoga room plays out in your everyday life;  When we learn how to focus our movements, when we discover the more subtle sensations of the physical body, we also open up the doorway to the more subtle sensations of the mind and emotional body.

Having completed many workshops and retreats with internationally renowned Donna Farhi, the principles of the teachings honour each person’s own journey and physical differences. You will learn how to recognize and feel your body’s patterns of movement; you will come to understand the feeling of ‘imbalance’ and how to correct this before things really go awry, you will learn what a ‘felt’ experience of true relaxation is. Through Gena’s gentle guidance and education, you will learn how to feel more about yourself on all levels in order to lead a life of peace and harmony.

Join Gena for regular yoga classes as well as retreats in both Fiji and Hawaii.
