Certified in Bikram 200 hour teacher training.
Certified Yoga Sculpt & Extensions, Vinyasa Flow and Advance Yoga Anatomy.
Prior to creating live stream yoga classes, I taught at Bikram Hawaii Kai, The Oahu Club, Infinity Movement and the YWCA. My plan is to open a Hawaii Kai yoga studio in 2021 to support all levels of yoga practice.
I have extensive understanding of the human body and psyche. With my nursing background I aim to bring ease and mobility to the body, giving you added strength and flexibility you never thought you had.The road of yoga is endless - it all starts with a pose and a thought, and expands into a never-ending path of self discovery and growth. I value each and every person who joins my class and I look forward to helping you achieve your wellness goals.
Yoga has changed my life, and I am passionate about helping others reach their physical and mental goals, and recognize their full potential. I started practicing Yoga because I wanted to change my body and mind for the better after being injured in a car accident. I have been practicing Yoga 9 years, and have been teaching for 3. I specialize in Yin Yoga and Restorative Yoga. I am also trained to teach Senior Yoga, Chair yoga, Seated, Prenatal, Elementary Level Yoga (PK-5), Beginners, Basic, Intermediate, Hatha and Vinyasa.
I am a registered teacher with Yoga Alliance, and am also a certified Personal Trainer. On top of my current 200 hour RYT, I am currently working on my 500 hr RYT. I also have certifications in Yin Yoga, Restorative Yoga, and Chair Yoga, and am working on my Children's Yoga Certification. I am used to modifying classes for individuals and groups, and I have also specialized in teaching students with physical ailments, because I think that Yoga is for everybody. All of my classes include multiple options per pose, so that any student can participate and get the most they're body can get out of each class.
Meet Cecilia Malsom, MBA, RYT 200
I was born and raised in Mexico. I married my husband three years ago and we moved to the Black Hills of South Dakota, where we live now. We live in the country, where we have a little boy, he is almost two. We have eight buffalo, two dogs and four cats. I work in accounting for a hotel chain here in the hills and when we are not busy with work or life, we like hiking and exploring the Black Hills. I started practicing yoga 10 years ago and fell in love with the practice. Yoga helps me to relax my body, mind, and spirit, to be in peace, and to stretch my body. I am a new yoga instructor. I graduated from Yahweh Yoga, a school in Arizona, and am a registered yoga teacher with Yoga Alliance. Currently I am studying for certification in prenatal, postnatal, and mom and baby yoga. My styles are Christian Yoga, Vinyasa, and Gentle Yoga. I am very excited to be a part of Yoga Hawaii Fitness and help students feel stronger, flexible and relaxed. Life is busy and in yoga you will find calm in the present moment.

Meet Ashley Snizek, BFA, RYT 500, Certified breath work and mindfulness coach. I am so excited to be offering gentle/beginner yoga as well as restorative to all of you, I can’t wait for you to join me! I am a member of the Yoga Alliance; I have been practicing yoga for several years and know the benefits first hand yoga has on the mind and body and I wanted to share that. I am known as The Migraine Yogini™. I developed a migraine yoga™ program as I was suffering debilitating migraines and have an autoimmune condition. I wanted to be able to lessen the potency and frequency of my flares and to help fellow sufferers of migraines, stress and anxiety do the same with theirs. I am also a certified kids yoga instructor and have a children's and tween/teen yoga business called Hang Loose Kids Yoga. I want to help start the kids learning about yoga, healthy lifestyle and their bodies and minds in a fun and interactive way. When I teach my gentle and restorative sessions, my goal is for you to feel great about yourself and be able to connect with yourself and take much needed time for you! Let’s practice together and get you feeling great, refreshed, and relaxed!
