In 2004, Malia Hill was dragged to a yoga class by a friend in Hawaii. She felt overworked, overweight, overstressed, and very disconnected from her body. Through yoga, she made changes to her life that she had always been afraid to make. She learned to deal with stress and challenge in healthier ways. Malia became a yoga instructor to help spread the benefits of yoga and living in the present moment to as many people as possible. She completed her 200 hour Teacher Training program at The Yoga Company in San Ramon in 2009. Malia’s yoga class is a playful flow, mixing vinyasa, power, and ashtanga styles. She teaches at The Yoga Company, ClubSport Pleasanton and San Ramon, and at The Studio in Danville. She is the co-owner of SupAsana East Bay which runs BOGA Yoga Stand Up Paddleboard classes in Pleasanton, California. She has had the honor of being a lululemon ambassador for two consecutive years. Malia is the co-chair for Yoga Reaches Out Bay Area and organized a Yogathon that made over $50,000 for Children’s Hospital & Research Center Oakland and The Africa Yoga Project in June of 2012. She is the proud mother of a wonderful little girl, Kalea Lani. Malia is a BOGA Yoga ambassador for BOGA Paddleboards.
