Wainani Arnold, the namesake of Wainani Wellness, was raised and resides in Hawai`i. From a young age, she lived and breathed hula, which planted the seed for her growth in all forms of dance. Her current work utilizes yoga, Ayurveda, gyrotonics, and pilates; our conversation is about her journey from dance to healing, and then how she created a sanctuary for people to find and grow personal and communal wellness. We talk about the challenges of staying centered when you run a business, even when that business is about healing. The thread that runs throughout our talk is the importance of using your intuition to find the root cause of any health issue and to make self-centering the starting point. - - Wainani is a graduate from the Kamehameha Schools.
