Born and raised in Hawaii, Leilani loves being on, in, and near water. Combining her knowledge as personal trainer with certifications from Corepower Yoga in both Vinyasa and Hot Yoga helps her create a fun and challenging experience on the water.

As a PSUPA, WPA, and Paddle into Fitness SUP instructor Leilani teaches introductory SUP lessons, yoga/fitness classes, and leads adventure tours around the beautiful waterways of the PNW. This summer she introduced her students to SUP barre; a challenging workout combining ballet barre and Pilates on the paddle board.

Leilani loves to inspire people to get outside, connect with nature, and live their healthiest lives. Her smile is contagious and sharing SUP stoke comes naturally to her. As a former triathlete, she developed a love for distance paddling and recently paddled the 100 miles from Portland to Astoria, Oregon. Even in the rainy PNW you’ll find Leilani paddling 365 days of the year!
