Kristin Taylor discovered the joy and power of her body in her early twenties through a catalytic dance awakening. Since that exciting and illuminating moment, she inspired to learn and embody the fluent connection between Body, Breath, Heart, and Spirit as a living alchemy and source of transformation. This became an adventurous study in many eastern forms of spiritual practices that also utilize the body to ground experiences. After five years of practice, guidance, and study with Deni Roman she was honored to become a teacher of alignment based yoga at The Maui Yoga Path. Deni also shared a deep love of dance and movement arts and so Kristin is also joyful to offer the Yoga Movement class that Deni designed.
Lani Diacono Yoga Alliance Certified RYT500,
Aloha! I am very passionate about practicing, living and teaching yoga here on Maui. I have been practicing for over 20 years and teaching for over 5. A perpetual student and seeker, I have completed multiple yoga teacher training certification programs, the most recent being with Nicki Doane and Eddie Modestini, long-time direct students of Pattabbi Jois and B.K.S. Iyengar. My studies continue, as yoga is a life-long journey. Over the last two years, I have been studying and practicing with Deni Roman, a very accomplished and inspiring yogini, studio owner, and certified teacher of Iyengar Yoga. A long-time direct student of Mr. Iyengar, in Deni, I have met a teacher and mentor who is taking my practice and teaching to the next level… It is truly a blessing, an honor and a privilege to teach alignment-based yoga at Deni’s beautiful Oceanfront Yoga Studio, Maui Yoga Path. I teach an all levels alignment-based Hatha Yoga class that is well rounded and tailored to the participants. My goal is to inspire and empower you to connect with your body wisdom and your own inner teacher on your journey to optimal health, vitality and wholeness…
The Light in me sees, honors, reflects, and bows deeply to the Divinity within you… Namaste’
I developed a passion for yoga while working as a nurse practitioner and becoming a mother and trying to balance these in my life. I practiced different styles early on: Hatha yoga, Anusara, and Bikram. I enjoyed them and found them challenging, beneficial and relaxing. Through the years I had the opportunity to study and know Deni Roman through her workshops and classes. Deni’s classes introduced me to Iyengar yoga and for me, I began to understand the practice of asanas, Yoga made more sense to me. I gradually began practicing and studying Iyengar yoga in Denver where I had to start from the beginning to learn asanas and attune my body, mind, and soul to Iyengar yoga, I spent several years in the Denver training program working with teachers and mentors prior to going up for assessment and receiving my certification in 2017. Deni has been a mentor and guides for me through this process. Over the last 2 years, subbing for different studios has been a great teacher for me. My background is pediatric nursing care for children with cancer which was a privilege for many years. My nursing approach has become more holistic. In addition, I also practice Centering Prayer and serve as a facilitator at the Contemplative Center of CO.I live in the Foothills of Colorado and love the outdoors, hiking, walking with my husband and 2 terriers. I have a 21 yo daughter. It is a privilege to be at the Maui Yoga Path to share my love for yoga with you.
