Here's what people are saying!
[My son] loves to come to your class, he sings your songs all the time while showing us new poses and moves. I could not be happier. Thanks Paul!!

My daughter has been enrolled in Keoni Movement Arts since Spring of 2016. She is an active girl and this program teaches her discipline, to work with others and also to keep her hands to herself. Lol... She has learned flexibility and experimentation in a safe setting and also leadership when Teacher Paul lets her call out the actions.

Keoni Movement Arts and Teacher Paul have provided my daughter with exercises and a program to help her become more independent and sociable. [My daughter] gets to interact with the other children who have now become companions in the class. Added to this, she gets to share with classmates from other countries as well. My daughter has down syndrome, autism and turrets, which makes it difficult for her to function, however through these simple and joyful dance and yoga movements she has learned to focus, concentrate and distract herself from her many challenges. The music and Teachers Paul's gentle instruction soothe and bring her much needed calmness. She recognizes her fellows students and is always happy to see them and participate in this wonderful program.

My daughter has been greatly helped by practicing the different yoga poses, gymnastic and dancing activities provided by Keoni Movement Arts. It has immensely eased her frustration by learning to properly breathe through the many exercises and it ultimately relaxes her so she can excel in everything she's doing. My daughter gets so excited about coming to class on Mondays and she beams whenever she tells her friends how much she looks forward to class. I am so grateful for the scholarship, because being of low income I would not have been able to fully afford paying for this program which my daughter so thoroughly enjoys.
