Jenna Contreras (The R’om’ing Yogi) is fulfilling her passion of “aligning aloha across Maui beaches”, teaching various levels of vinyasa yoga at studios, resorts, and beaches. A practitioner of yoga and perpetual student of the practice, she thrives on the feeling of elation achieved through accessing connection with our source energy. Overcoming cancer and the subsequent journey inward was the catalyst for sharing this joy and gratitude for life with others. Inspired by the opportunity to impart empowering positivity and introspection through teaching yoga, she is fulfilling her dream of sharing the magic that happens when we connect our mind, body, and spirit through breath. Teaching light-hearted, gentle to intermediate level classes that integrate messages of mindfulness and dharma aligning with the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, she aims to inspire her students to carry this magic off the mat, spreading the spirit of aloha with others!
In deepening her own yoga practice, Jenna was introduced to Fluid Yoga® by Kevan Gale in Boston, receiving her RYT 200 hr. certification. This internal heat-building flow not only increases strength and flexibility, but trains the mind to be more content and relaxed throughout difficult challenges on and off the mat. Additionally she holds a certification for a restorative practice called SPA Yoga®, a meditative, floor-based gentle flow by candlelight, enhanced by soft music, aromatherapy, and hands-on assists for a whole-body sensory experience that aligns practitioners with the body’s subtle energy, deep inner peace, and relaxation.
