Interview with Nadia Toraman:

"Yoga has been life-changing for me. Since the first day, I have always kept with it. And what better place to practice then on the island where the spirit of yoga and the soul of Hawaii have so much in common. The raw, organic feel of nature, the connection between prana and mana, namaste and aloha, all contribute to finding the true self while healing and rejuvenating, and guiding us to deeper levels of awareness." - Nadia Toraman

Asana practice has one meaning: to learn to sit in your own beautiful true nature.
-Maty Ezraty
