Aloha Kai Yoga is a beautiful island-inspired movement studio offering Yoga, Mat Pilates, and Barre classes.
We are a unique studio as we provide an alternative to traditional yoga philosophy. Stefanee Kai Bowler, the owner, is a strong believer in God, stands grounded in her faith as a Christian, and is passionate about the body and educating her clients in how to be the best version of themselves. She believes that yoga is just another way of honoring God through this amazing modality of yoga by inviting Christ into her practice. “Love the Lord your God with all your Heart, and with all your Soul, and with all your Mind, and with all your Strength” ~Mark 12:30~
She also knows that not everyone shares her same beliefs or walk of life, so when she opened the studio she wanted to make sure that everyone felt comfortable to come to their mats and share this beautiful space together, no matter where their faith stood. Her dream is to create a space that allows a diverse group of people to slowly become a family and tribe that supports, encourages, and celebrates each other’s growth and victories!
When you come to Aloha Kai Yoga you will find a clean space void of statues, alters, crosses, OM-ing, chanting or anything else of that nature. You will find a neutral space that welcomes everyone of any faith to come to their mat and share in this beautiful practice. All classes are neutral based as well unless specified, and those are clearly stated (Holy Yoga) Christ-Centered Yoga. We focus on a very physical and anatomical practice with attention to correct alignment and deep breathing techniques. We are truly blessed to be in this magical space, and do what we love to do, and are so excited to share it with you!
You can find us in the heart of Downtown Petaluma, California located on the upper deck of the Great Petaluma Mill, overlooking the River with a breathtaking view of the city.
In Hawaiian Language “Aloha” means many beautiful things… Love, Respect, Compassion & Affection.
Having a special place in our hearts and being a beautiful gesture, here we say “ALOHA” instead of Namaste.
“Alo” means (Presence) – “Ha” means (Breath) – “Kai” means (Ocean)
~ Meaning ~
“Be (Present) with every (Breath) and flow through your practice like the waves of the (Ocean)”
– Aloha Kai –
“God’s (Presence) surrounds you, His (Breath) fills you, and His grace washes over you like the waves of the (Ocean)”
– Aloha Kai –
Here at Aloha Kai Yoga we believe that core strength and breath is the foundation of any practice, and with each focused breath should come continued progress and growth as you lengthen and strengthen your body as a whole. With every movement (done with intention) you are creating a Masterpiece of Health & Well-being.
Create strength, flexibility, mobility, balance, and range of motion, while adding a little Aloha into your life!
