I've been making jewelry since I was 13, when I made my first necklace for my mom. My aunt then taught me about wire wrapping sea glass, drilling shells & before you knew it I was creating all sorts of interesting jewelry.
I attended Sacred Path Healing School in 2005 and just graduated this past year! A lot has happened in between starting and finishing, but the school really helped me learn about myself & my own spirituality & how to ground it into my daily life. We learned about the chakra system & yoga, which I loved! This is what inspired me to create my chakra and lotus jewelry line.
I now teach Buddhi yoga twice a week at the Hawaiian Cultural Center of Hāmakua, and have completed my integrative health coach training with the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. I offer private & group yoga, health coaching, along with healing arts in Pa'auilo & Honoka'a, located on the Big Island of Hawai'i, as well as via Skype, Facetime or phone for non local residents.
Thanks for checking out Alea Lani Designs & I hope you enjoy the jewelry as much as I love making it!
