In Hawaii, the modern-yogi set are often seen checking in at the CorePower Yoga studio in Kahala, where classes range from beginner to advanced.
Their Power Vinyasa, Hot Power Fusion, and Yoga Sculpt are among the most popular classes, where high-energy music has you in a steady flow. In January, CorePower Yoga is also going to become a signature of the Ward Village community, in a nearly 5,000-square-foot studio, and will offer a variety of classes for all levels. But we couldn't wait any longer to get these awesome yogis in our backyard, so Ward Village partnered with CorePower Yoga to offer free weekly yoga classes at the lanai of the Ward Village Information Center Courtyard, with Lia Catanzaro, studio assistant and yoga instructor, leading the way.
Lucky for Lia, she gets to spend most of her time perfecting the cardiovascular art form. But she hasn't always been a yoga fanatic—she danced jazz, ballet, and lyrical for 15 years in her hometown of Rhode Island before moving to Oahu to studying psychology at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. "After I took my first yoga class, it changed everything," she says.
It's a whole lifestyle change that affects everything in your life. It makes you happier, healthier, and reframes a lot of things.
Every first Thursday, classes will even come with complimentary wine, because what pairs better than vino and vinyasa? This ongoing event is just one sign of how excited we are about the healthy, community-oriented direction that Ward Village is headed, and we hope to have you all come along.
Starting November 13, Join Lia every Thursday from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. for the freeWard Village Yoga Series at the lanai of the Ward Village Courtyard (1240 Ala Moana Blvd.). Also, don't miss the Vino and Vinyasa event, held every first Thursday of the month featuring an hour of vinyasa yoga and a glass of complimentary wine. Classes will be available to the first 50 registrants who sign in at the Courtyard the day of the class.
