Brad Waites is one of fewer than 40 teachers worldwide to be certified at the 2,000-hour level by the College of Purna Yoga, and is currently a member of the college faculty. After a career as a partner in a civil-litigation law firm, he began pursuing yoga as a means of self-empowerment and self-fulfillment. Years of study led him to Purna Yoga, which seeks to evolve the consciousness of all humanity. He also holds a professional level teacher's certificate from Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health, where he lived and taught for several years. Brad leads workshops and classes throughout North America. In addition to a love of anatomy and alignment, he has a special interest in introducing students to the beauty of yoga philosophy and the power of Heartfull™ Meditation.
Jennifer Weinert has studied extensively with Purna Yoga™ founders, Aadil Palkhivala and Savitri since 1995. She has been teaching for nearly as long and is a Certified Purna Yoga Instructor (CPYI), having completed over 2,000 hours of professional training as a yoga teacher. She is a Yoga Alliance Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher (E-RYT 500). Jennifer directs The College of Purna Yoga at Hilo Yoga, a 200 hour Yoga Teacher Certification program. She teaches privately in her home studio, Purna Yoga Hawai'i, (Hilo Yoga) and publicly within the Hilo community on the Big Island of Hawaii. She also presents workshops locally and internationally, and trains Teachers of Purna Yoga.
Jennifer joyously shares what she has learned from the lineage of Purna Yoga as well as her personal growth experiences from her own practice. The essence of yoga is to be lived not just read and recited, or practiced on the mat. Therefore yogic philosophy and its practical applications are spontaneously offered throughout Jennifer’s classes. Her passion is to guide students to heal and grow on all levels- physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
