Myra embraced the power of Ayurveda and Yoga after she was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis at age 30, a condition her doctors said was “incurable.” Her career as a corporate executive had previously made it difficult to manage her health but that prognosis pushed her to seek out a holistic lifestyle that would allow her body and mind to find balance. She undertook trainings in Ayurveda and Yoga in India and around the world and as she healed her own body and mind through these ancient sciences, they became the foundation for her life. Three decades later, she is symptom-free. She founded Hale Pule Ayurveda and Yoga in 1999 as a place for those looking to start or strengthen their journey toward true health.
Myra is the author of two books, Freedom in Your Relationship with Food and Simple Ayurvedic Recipes, a professional member of the National Ayurvedic Medical Association (NAMA) and Yoga Alliance, and has more than 25,000 hours of Yoga teaching experience spanning 20 years. She has studied with some of the world’s most prominent practitioners of Ayurveda and Yoga, including Sunil Joshi, David Frawley, Robert Svoboda, Maya Tiwari, Sarasvati Buhrman, Vasant Lad, Sandra Kozak, Pattabhi Jois, Ramanand Patel, and Richard Freeman, among others. She has spoken at several conferences around the world, including the International Ayurveda Conference and Burlington Yoga Conference.
Myra leads Yoga teacher trainings and Ayurvedic trainings and retreats on her home island of Kaua’i and all over the world. She offers Ayurvedic health consultations, both in-person or remotely. Among many of her clients, she is known as the "baby whisperer" because of amazing success stories helping couples use Ayurveda to overcome infertility issues.
When Myra is not helping others find balance in their lives, you’ll find her knee deep in dirt pulling weeds, making date pecan muffins in the kitchen, surfing, swimming, hiking or playing with her pups, Sukha and Nika.
