About Dharma-rooted Yoga 

Message from the president



Aloha our yoga-mates!

Dharma-rooted Yoga was founded in 2014 based in Honolulu, Hawaii, with the mission of helping people pursue their healthy lives in harmony with Nature.


We think everyone has different life-path, condition and circumstance and has different needs and convenience. Our goal is to help any student expand his/her own edge of capability even slightly, by continuing yoga to go toward the balance of his/her body, mind and spirit.

We believe that everything will go well when you are in full conformity with Nature (including nature of your body, nature of your personality and nature of your environment etc.), or in other words, when you align yourselves with the Will of Universe. You don't have to "fix" or "force" yourself but just listen to your body and Self, and follow their directions. Dharma-rooted Yoga will just guide you toward the directions through Hatha Yoga practices, including asana, pranayama, and meditation.

We hope each and every one find a moment to enjoy feeling of steadiness and comfort in our yoga classes.

Looking forward to seeing you soon!
