Sun Yoga was born from a deep desire to help others feel the wonderful life-changing benefits of a consistent hot yoga served with love and compassion. The founder of Sun Yoga, Michele Santos, started hot yoga during her second semester in college. She soon became an avid Bikram Yoga practitioner and after the birth of her first child she became a teacher so that it would always be a part of her life. She marvelled at hot yoga’s demands of focus and commitment to herself and those around her. Somewhere deep inside, the initial stirrings of what would become Michele’s true calling began to surface.
The purpose to share the gift that she herself had been given years before with many others was so strong. After the birth of her second son, Michele found renewed strength to fulfill her dream of deepening her knowledge and sharing the practice of hot yoga. Her meditations increased, her practice of deep relaxations grew–and with it came a new clarity of what was to be. The light and warmth of the sun in Hawaii, her home, lit her heart and threw open a spark: Sun Yoga Hawaii was born in March of 2012. Since then, the studio and community has grown to include other styles of yoga to compliment the Sun Yoga practice. Sun Yoga now also offers Sun Flow, Sun Sculpt, Yin Yoga, Yoga Nidra and Meditation.
Sun Yoga’s mission is to help each person we serve feel better and better from the inside out, everyday. We do so through the ancient practice of yoga and served with hearts full of aloha. Sun Yoga is here to help you feel great and positively affect generations to come!
