Collette O'Keefe Cameron
Collette Rae has been living and teaching yoga on the north shore for almost a decade. Fun, energetic, and often firey, Collette embraces connecting with people, her sacred practice, and the evolution of time. She has traveled to experience Wanderlust and is thrilled to welcome them to Hawai'i.

"The Ocean of life is lavish with it's abundance.
All my needs and desires are met before I even ask.
My good comes from everywhere and everyone and everything."
Leslie leads a blessed life of love. Hawaii is her home and she feels extreme gratitude everyday to reside in a place filled with strong spirit and beauty. Leslie lives her passions; yoga, health, people, adventures, photography, traveling, writing, and roaming in mother nature. She is currently working on her RYT 200 hour teacher training at Open Space Yoga and falls deeper in love with the practice of yoga, connecting deeply to the breath, and the supportive community that surrounds her. Read more about Leslie on her blog, here.
Monica began her yoga journey as a teenager. The deeper she went with her practice, the more she fell in love with what yoga had to offer her. This inspiration fueled Monica to share yoga with people of all ages and backgrounds. Monica completed her Yoga Ed. training and her 200 RYT in 2008. In her adult classes she has developed a powerful fluid style focused on alignment through the exploration of creative movement with breath. Teaching yoga to kids has given her the opportunity to soften and nurture the younger spirit. Continuing to feed her passion to learn, Monica continues to work with her teacher on yoga philosophy and meditation.
Nina Alena Beatty
Nina is thrilled to be on the Wayfarer wagon as yoga, surfing, and music top her list in how to live life! She was fortunate to have grown up on the North Shore of O'ahu, around parents and a community who practice yoga, surf and a family that LOVES music. Yoga came easy when it was time (2001), and teaching fell into place in 2008. She is delighted to offer donation based yoga classes at two locations on the North Shore of O'ahu. Recently, she and Stretch Your Imagination have since spearheaded the yoga program at Sunset Beach Elementary School, providing yoga to grades preschool thru 6th grade. Through donation-based yoga and educating the youth in the community, she hopes yoga can be accesible to all!
Originally from Toronto, Canada, Ruby came to the islands to follow her dreams and now makes her home in Hawaii. She completed her 200-hour RYT training with Open Space Yoga School, and recently completed her certification as a Ayurveda Yoga Specialist with The Himalayan Institute. As a yoga teacher and integrated massage therapist with formal training in Swedish, Thai and Lomi Lomi massage, Ruby is passionate about living a life of abundance, health, wellness and love. Through yoga, Ruby has learned the importance of being faithful to that which exists within, and rediscovered that the deepest and most intimate relationship to have is the relationship with your self. Whether in the yoga room or off the mat, she is always a student -- discovering ways to learn, grow and share. She lives by grace, gives gratitude for all she has, and continues to breathe in all that life offers. "Keep on marching, right into the heart" - Dharma Mittra
| ||Tara Lavery|
Tara began practicing yoga in 1999 while in massage therapy school. It was a way for her to give back to her body after massaging clients all day. It started with healing the physical, but led to a much deeper emotional and spiritual well-being. From her experience, Tara finds that through diet, yoga, and bodywork, we can all learn to be free of pain, disease, and suffering. Tara's mission is to help others find their inner healer, the inner source that feeds us, the inner teacher that knows the path. She's been blessed to practice and study with the most amazing teachers, and is extremely grateful to share this ancient wisdom. More info on Tara here.
