After working in corporate America, Selena decided to move on from the office environment to pursue a new career. She moved to Hawaii to study massage therapy and bodywork at The Maui School of Therapeutic Massage. The healing power of bodywork became her passion and led her on a four-year journey around the world; living, studying and working with different teachers, masters, and gurus on topics of bodywork, natural health practices, yoga, and vegan cooking and nutrition. In India she studied at the Sivananda Ashram and later completed Yoga Teacher Training with Chaitanya Das in Peru. She is passionate about sharing yoga as a way of life to help others feel physically, emotionally, and spiritually fulfilled.
Upon completing five years of service in the Israeli Navy Seals Unit, Kipi went on to study Wilderness Therapy. He worked with juvenile delinquents in Israel using sea and wilderness therapy as a treatment for a variety of issues, including substance abuse/addictions, depression, anxiety, ADD, ADHD, and motivation issues. His love and skill for working with youth grew and he went on to work with some of the world's leading youth empowerment programs in the US. In 2014 Kipi combined two of his passions, yoga and wilderness therapy and began Wild Yoga Retreats, facilitating Yogic Lifestyle Retreats in the wilderness with Selena. He also completed the Living Yoga Training program at the Satchidananda Ashram in Yogaville and continues a deep personal practice of a yogic lifestyle. He is passionate about sharing yoga with our youth and making yoga accessible for everyone.
