Tenya is a leading Yoga teacher on Maui and founder of 10ya Yoga, LLC. For the past twenty years, she has been teaching yoga classes, workshops, and retreats all over the world including ten years in London, England.
Her yoga journey began at a very young age when she started dancing and performing. In 1988, she progressed into teaching dance and movement classes. She incorporates her vast experience and knowledge as a past dancer, choreographer, performer, and fitness teacher. Tenya then fell in love with the practice of yoga and found her true calling to teach.
In 1999, she originally trained in Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga and since 2001 has had extensive training with Shiva Rea. Her earlier training in Ashtanga Yoga includes David Swenson, John Scott, and Liz Lark, which are some of her most influential teachers.
She has infused her passion for music and dance, developing a very unique style of fluid, dynamic, and graceful Vinyasa Flow yoga. She uses sequences using a krama (layering from gentle to strong) system. Tenya also uses a mindful flow of postures, linking asanas with pranayama, while incorporating gentle, relaxing, and restorative techniques. In addition to her Vinyasa and Gentle classes, she also teaches an All levels SUP + Yoga out on our west Maui waters.
