Hawai'i 2016 Highlights! Wanderlust Yoga Fest, Dolphins, 1 Year Bday and more!

This was such an AMAZING journey!!! This video shares glimpses from our time teaching at the Wanderlust Yoga Festival on Oahu to celebrating our son's 1 year birthday on the Big Island of Hawaii, his birth home. 

Highlights include the 50 - 60 ft waves at Waimea for the famous and rare Eddie surf competition that ended up happening on the first day of the Wanderlust Festival. Also the celebration of Sekai's first year of Life... swimming with dolphins! A very special Kava ceremony, a traditional sunrise blessing ceremony by Kahu Ka'mana'o and his beautiful assistant, Celeste... and all the sweet moments in between in our 'flow'. 

We were so deeply honored to share the transformational power and medicine of the flow arts at Wanderlust! And it was so wonderful to reunite with our dolphin friends on the Big Island and to have so many of our close friends and family travel so far to celebrate such a big moment for our son, Sekai. 

So grateful for Nova Dasalla to take the time and energy to create this video to be enjoyed by all! 

Much Aloha & Namaste,

Jinju

As a new mother of a 9 month old, I (Jinju) am slowly but surely coming back to my dance with poi and the hoop. What a journey! Super grateful for my husband, Nova, who helped make this little video with our soul flow baby Sekai. It felt soooo good to be dancing again and in such a beautiful place. And of course, soooo fun, thanks to Nova... there's a glimpse of him "hooping" with Sekai strapped to his chest at the end :)

Aloha 'Aina . . . . what that really means to us

If you've followed us from the start of SFA, you know that almost everything we do is inspired by Hawai'i, our heart home. While we enjoy the paragliding, the dolphins, its water and beaches . . . . what it's really about for us is the connection to the 'aina . . . . to the land. We often say "Aloha 'Aina", love of the land, to express this connection. (These are some of the very 1st words we said to Sekai.) Those who feel this see the 'aina as an elder and as such, how can you not take care of your own mother or father as they have taken care of you?

We are elated as right before our eyes, we see the planet growing on Hawai'i. At the same time, we are saddened that it has been and will be used primarily for commercial purposes, tourism, the building of telescopes, or the testing of new GMOs. While we resonate the most with the islands, "Aloha 'Aina" applies to any land - no matter where it is! - and the respect, honor, and love you have for it. 

We feel the video below, both from scientific and traditional perspectives, inspires us to share this message with you. And if you enjoy it, please visit "Our Inspiration" on our website to see others who have as well.

Mom & Baby Poi Dancing - New Mamas Keep Your Dance Alive!

Soul Flow Mama & 6 month old Baby Sekai poi-dancing at Mussel Rock, CA

Definitely requiring me (Jinju) to get back to the basics of my practice, but my goodness, feels so good to be dancing!

This will be the first of hopefully many little videos to inspire all the new mamas out there to keep their dance alive!

One of my biggest fears about becoming a mother was losing my passion and ability to keep dancing the way I did before becoming a mother.

As another mother shared with me, "You will keep dancing. Your dance will simply evolve." And evolve it does... It's been challenging to find the time... And realizing now more than ever how important it is to make the time. Even if it's only 5 min a day!

No matter where u are on your path, may u keep your dance alive, and may your dance keep your soul in flow!

Special thanks to my beloved soul flow mate Nova Dasalla for capturing this dance today... Thank YOU baby for encouraging me to keep dancing!!! And for inspiring me as you keep flying :)

SOUL FLOW TRANSITIONS PART 2. Poi - Dancing Tutorial on Grace in Transitions with Simple Stalls

Solstice is a great time to explore how we approach transitions. How do you approach transitions in life and in your dance? How do you cultivate grace, flow and ease as you shift into new directions and in this case, the new year?

This video demonstrates the use of simple stalls to transition inside of a simple poi - dancing sequence. This instructional video is coupled with planetary wisdom and inspiration from one of my dearest mentors, Elisabet Sahtouris. 

Coupling personal growth and transformational work with the flow arts has been so powerful for me, and for my clients, I can’t imagine these journeys any other way!

Special New Moon Poi Ritual is offered at 4 min 08 sec in PART 1 of this 2 part video series. Check it out! This ritual has been super powerful and fun for me the last couple years. If you love it, pass it on! 

May you always remember the Truth of who you really are and take advantage this new moon solstice window to dip deep into the sweetness of that Truth.

Europe, Nova flying in Italian World Cup, and Fun Announcement

Here's a glimpse of our Soul Flow adventures in Europe! Nova competed in Acro Max, an Aerobatic Paragliding World Cup (APWC), at Lago di Cavazzo in northeastern Italy near Udine. Nova did great, placing only 4 spots away from making the cut into the final round. Considering he hasn't flown but once in a month and half and doesn't have the opportunity to train as heavily as most professional pilots, he did really well!! 

We show his run in this video, talk a bit of story about our time here, and send our love!
