MEET AHNU'S INSPIRATIONAL YOGA AMBASSADORS
Each month we feature a profile of an ambassador who inspires us, their students, and the community.
Kimi Marin, Ahnu Yoga Ambassador
Kimi discovered yoga over a decade ago looking for an activity to complement running. Over time, yoga became a way of life. Kimi teaches yoga to help others find clarity in their mind, body and spirit. She guides students through their practice by riding the waves of breath, continually aligning breath and body into a rhythmic flow of consciousness.
Kimi has a master’s degree in literature, and loves to combine the power of stories with yoga. She often weaves the myths and stories about various poses into the class. Her transformative Yogic Lore workshops are a fun combination of stories, asana, meditation, and mantra.
Kimi was featured in Origin Magazine’s Inspire Series and her writing has been published on several blog sites. When Kimi is not teaching, writing, or leading Hiking Yoga adventures, she can be found playing in nature with her dog and husband.
She lives in Portland, Oregon and you can learn more about her and her yoga practice at www.kimimarinyoga.com.
Lisa Johnston, Ahnu Yoga Ambassador
Lisa teaches Prana Flow(r) classes that are creative, empowering, and FUN! She wants her students to find joy in the moment...even when at that moment, they are sweating and shaking...a LOT!
Lisa has been a teacher in various capacities for more than 15 years. In addition to her many yoga workshops and master classes, she has taught everything from digital illustration and branding to how to market oneself as a yoga teacher. Lisa has been an artist her entire life and has woven her two great loves of yoga and graphic design into a successful career.
She is grateful to her Maha teacher and mentor Shiva Rea for guiding her on the yogic path in addition to giving her amazing experiences to grow as a teacher, student and an artist. When not teaching or practicing yoga, you can find Lisa playing in the ocean or hiking in the Santa Monica mountains.
