Leah A. Vernon - Owner/Founder

Aloha! My name is Leah Vernon and I am the owner and lead instructor here at Yoga Kai. After moving to Hawaii in early 2014, I was quickly inspired to take my practice outside of the studio and eventually onto a paddle board. Once I discovered that Paddle Yoga was an actual activity, it sparked my interest to share it with others.  I had already received my 200RYT and it was just four short months after my move that I decided to go back to the mainland to complete my SUP Yoga training. Once I returned to the island, I completed a lifeguard certification as well and began the process of building Yoga Kai. At the same time, SUP Yoga was building a name for itself. I was the first to start practicing at Ala Moana Beach Park which was exciting and challenging.  At the time, it wasn’t popular so I had to create a system and figure everything out as I went. All I wanted to do was be on the water, to guide students through a new experience, and to make new friends making every bit of work well worth it. I hope you enjoy what we have worked so hard to build and continue to strengthen and grow. Love and light friends! KEEP RISING!
