Michael is proud of the team of instructors who share his passion for yoga and for the nurturing, supportive environment that they provide for the students. Yoga teacher MaryAnn Jones once said "I love teaching yoga because yoga attracts the best people, the cream of the crop" This could not be more true of the Yoga For Living Kula or community, where students are more than just customers, they are truly friends. As instructors, we continue to learn each day, from our students and for this we are grateful. We invite you to email us and share your personal yoga story. We love hearing how yoga has changed your life. Melinda Downing, Yoga For Living. '"At Yoga For Living, we believe yoga is about challenging the breath. We do this by putting the body in various poses and remembering to breathe. It's not so much about flexibility of the body, but rather our ability to relax and breathe when we feel challenged in a pose. When we walk out the door and are faced with stressful situations in our day to day lives, we can use that same relaxed breathing to get us through any situation.For all of us no matter what our goals or accomplishments, the next thing for all of us to do...is breathe." Michael Downing, director, Yoga For Living."

Shortly after that, I discovered the owner of the building was Arthur Dyson, a long-time friend of my late grandfather. One sign after another continued to "show up" and support my desire to take that exciting leap. In its infinite wisdom, the universe provided exactly what was needed so that my vision could become a reality ... one breath at a time ...one student at a time..."
