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. She 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. Through her sport of Outrigger canoeing she developed a love for the Hawaiian Islands and she shares her passion and knowledge of the culture in her Hawaiian Yoga Retreats which are held annually on the Big Island of Hawaii.
