Pamela Kamoku – Island of Maui
Aloha, I’m Pamela, health educator and founder of Ease in Motion Somatics, located on the island on Maui.
I’m here to make sure that you thrive in life and I do that by using easy-to-apply neuroplasticity tools: movement, breathing and self-awareness.
Neuroplasticity is the brain’s ability to learn and reorganize neural pathways. It’s the nervous system’s ability to constantly change.
I’d like to think of myself as an “awesome-ologist”: someone who helps others feel more ‘awesome’ than they currently do.
I left the marketing wholesale/retail world in 2007 and stepped into what I’m very passionate about; moving well, moving often and minimizing stress/anxiety.
Supporting and educating others toward better health is my life’s calling and professional passion. Breathing (and relearning to breathe functionally) is at the top of my list to improve over-all health and longevity.
Serving as a guide and facilitator, my mission is to gently help clients build confidence, renew sense of self, and reclaim personal empowerment by learning to breathe and move with more ease. I am skilled at safely adapting breathing and movement programs for every client’s ability, from millennials to baby boomers, to individuals who are experiencing an illness or chronic physical condition.
Rebecca Tinkler – Maui
Rebecca’s first career was as an early childhood educator, after having her own children her passion turned to natural medicine. Harnessing the body’s natural abilities to heal itself led Rebecca on a path into breathwork where she eventually found the wonders of the Buteyko Breathing Method. Rebecca melds her years of teaching and breathing expertise for children and adults in family friendly sessions and is available for virtual appointments, so time and distance are not an issue when scheduling.
Rebecca is dedicated to leading her clients into better health by education and facilitating the Buteyko Method for longevity, overall stress reduction and improved sleep. This often includes dealing with the symptoms of asthma, allergies or other inflammatory agents, whether they are physical or psychological. Improvement of breathing mechanics results in increased clarity, wellness and performance for the client, no matter what their age.
Rebecca also works alongside and refers to an array of other airway focused specialists, such as myofunctional therapists, speech pathologists, physical therapists, dentists and sleep doctors.
