What’s your favorite fitness routine at the moment?
I swim or surf daily. Walking around Diamond Head, going to the gym, bicycling are all things I enjoy doing as often as possible.
You’ve lived all around the world! How did you end up in Honolulu?
I am originally from The FYR of Macedonia. I grew up in my family’s sandwich shoppe in Chicago working with my three older sisters and parents who I adore. After traveling extensively and living in places I fell in love with I came to Hawaii. The island intoxicated me with it’s floral scent, warm waters and kind people. It is unique and hard to leave!
What made you decide to open Infinity Wellness?
I learned that educating and empowering people created long term health. This is something to spread. The vision of growing a wellness team of like-minded people was always a vision. Hawaii was the place to plant the seed. Gratefully I have been able to watch it grow into something more beautiful than I imagined.
What’s your favorite part of the job?
I love people. Making people feel good, inspiring them to tune in to their greater selves simply makes me happy.
What makes the Outrigger Waikiki location so special?
Everything about the Outrigger is special. The view of Diamond Head, the people, the clients, the ocean, the staff, everything breathes wellness and Hawaii. We know guests will be excited to learn about the free oceanfront yoga classes now being offered. Tell us more about how this came about and what guests should expect. This will be our launch of the 90th monthly fitness class on the island. Waking up and starting the day stretching, breathing deep with sounds of the ocean is the best way to start a day. Our teachers are fun, uplifting, knowledgeable, inspiring. Everyone should try it!
What’s a typical day like for you?
My morning coffee and a swim or surf are my daily rituals. The rest are a mix of good food with people I love and work I enjoy.
