While yoga is our main focus, we know your overall wellbeing depends on so much more than just your practice. That's why Ohana strives to offer everything you need to take care of your complete Self.
Certified Life Coach and Co-Owner, Alexis Bethel, gets that being a woman isn’t easy. There’s a lot society expects from us – and that we expect from ourselves – and it’s hard to feel sexy and healthy and energized and good enough all at the same time. So many of us struggle with body image, self confidence, being “healthy enough”, being successful and smart enough, and all trying to hold it together while still being fun, social and supportive of friends and family. That’s a pretty full plate and it's the expectation that society holds for women – and more importantly, that we hold for ourselves.
But what if we could feel sexy, healthy, and energized– and what if that were enough for us as individuals? That’s what Alexis is here to support you in doing. Being healthy and living the life you want is about progress, not perfection. As a Life Coach, her goal is to create a supportive environment that allows you to work toward your health and lifestyle goals with accountability. Together you'll work step-by-step to find easy integratable and sustainable changes that will transform your life.
AIS STRETCH THERAPY
Colleen Carey-Williams is certified in the Active Isolated Stretching (AIS) method of muscle lengthening and fascial release, which is an Athletic Stretching Technique that provides effective, dynamic, facilitated stretching of major muscle groups. More importantly, AIS provides functional and physiological restoration of superficial and deep fascial planes. Over the past few decades many experts have advocated that stretching should last up to 60 seconds. For years, this prolonged static stretching technique was the gold standard. However, prolonged static stretching actually decreases the blood flow within the tissue creating localized ischemia and lactic acid buildup. This can potentially cause irritation or injury of local muscular, tendinous, lymphatic, as well as neural tissues, similar to the effects and consequences of trauma and overuse syndromes.
