Erin Maile O'Keefe is an international educator and trainer who has developed kinesthetic, multigenerational curriculums focusing on group inclusion, connection, empathy and co-authorship. She has worked with diverse cultural groups and communities from India to the Middle East to her homeland of Hawai'i, bringing them together through skillfully facilitated play. In 1997, Erin Maile innovated the practices of CircusYoga and Flying Partner Yoga with her husband Kevin O'Keefe out of their love for the unique synthesis of yoga, circus, connection, and play. Since then, she has led CircusYoga Teacher Trainings and mentored a community of teachers teaching worldwide. Her lifelong passion for exploring embodied movement and space led her to in-depth studies in Art, Architecture, Yoga, Embodied Anatomy & Developmental Movement, Thai Massage, Circus, Dance and Meditation. Erin Maile honors her generous teachers, among them Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen, Beth Biegler, TKV Desikachar, Reggie Ray, Mabel Hefty, and the CircusYogis of the world. www.circusyoga.com
