More About Haunani
Haunani [houw-naan-nee] (she/her/hers) is a Licensed Acupuncturist and International Yoga and Ayurveda facilitator, educator, and mentor. She is proud to have taken the path less traveled so she can step into the sacredness of life and share a perspective of medicine allopathic doctors tend to ignore–a perspective of wholeness. As a natural connector, she loves building bridges between health care and self-care, modern medicine and ancient healing medicine, the external and internal, science and spirit.
Her own unrelenting health challenges growing up coupled with a deep curiosity of ancient healing traditions, lead her to Ayurveda as a teenager. For the first time, she was relieved to know there was a system of medicine that seemed to understand she was not “broken.” Nearly a decade later, the path of Yoga entered her life which acted as a catalyst for her own personal healing, self-growth, and understanding of her dharma. In 2010, she became a certified Ayurveda Wellness Counselor through Kerala Ayurveda Academy, and in 2011, she graduated from Pacific College of Health Sciences with a Masters of Science in Traditional Oriental Medicine.
For the past 18 years, Haunani has spent thousands of hours learning and apprenticing with teachers in various lineages of Yoga and ancient healing traditions. She is an inspiring teacher who makes Asian medicine easy-to-understand and practical so you can apply it to your life immediately. She believes healing from our past wounds and traumas is possible and taking these steps is the most profound thing we can do to make this world a better place for all. She is an Aries, pitta-Vata, metal monkey, 7 enneagram, and Modern Medicine Womxn. All this to say, she’s an eternal optimist who loves life, people, and this amazing planet. When she’s not geeking out on topics of qi and prana, she can be found adjusting to her family’s globe-trotting military life, off in nature with her family, dancing just because, or watching Gil Hedley’s human dissections while ironing. A forever student, she is humbled and honored to be a facilitator for Indra Yoga Institute.
