Each Monday, Chelsea teaches a chair yoga class for the seniors of Ho’onani from 10:30-11:30

Waimea Yoga has partnered with Kipukaokeola, the Native Hawaiian Rural Health Clinic to offer free classes to participants of the Ulu Laukahi Project, a year long program
The Ulu Laukahi Project is designed to help our Native Hawaiian clients achieve a greater measure of health and well-being. We will inspire, inform, instruct, and help participants to successfully integrate lessons into their lifestyle. We aim to help clients reduce their weight to healthier Body Mass Index (BMI) levels, decrease and stabilize blood pressure to healthier levels, reduce and stabilize blood sugar levels to healthier levels; decrease psychological stress and dysfunction (depression, anxiety, substance abuse) to more functional levels, increase understanding and ability to prepare and eat healthier foods, and increase understanding and usage of health-promoting self-care activities in daily life. The project will increase engagement in family health and well-being and increase patient access and engagement with preventive/intervention services and care using culturally informed approaches at every step. Encouraging access to prevention and intervention services and promoting healthy, active, lifestyle changes will reduce the likelihood of chronic disease manifestations and progressions.
Each Thursday from 2:15-3:45 through the PTSD Health & Research Center, a local non-profit dedicated to serving veterans in Hawaii county, Chelsea holds an iRest meditation class followed by yoga therapy. Veterans are welcome to join this class free of charge with a referral from a doctor or therapist. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
