Jasmine Yoga is a great resource for yoga on O’ahu. The owner, Mara J, began teaching on the East Coast in 1999, inspired by her first instructor Mimi Loureiro of O2 Yoga. She has since developed her own unique programs on O’ahu after relocating in 2003. The school has grown to accomodate all body types, ages, and occasions! Mara’s students keep her motivated, as does studying with local and visiting teachers. The core strengths of the programs are where balance, breath, playfulness, and the deep care for her students meet to form a therapeutic experience. A release of expectations combined with laughter lead to success for student and teacher. The sweetest success story of Jasmine Yoga is the dedication of long-time students, especially those who have moved on to become yoga instructors themselves.
