Juri Edwards was born and raised in Tokyo and currently resides in Honolulu with her husband.
After graduating from Chapman University with a B.A. in Peace Studies, she moved to Hawaii. Influenced by Hawaii's natural setting, she began leading a more active, fitness-oriented lifestyle, including a deep yoga practice. With gratitude and dedication she completed her teacher training at Open Space Yoga.
Aside from her yoga practice, Juri is the proud mother of a puppy named Lulu and an athlete who enjoys various forms of exercise including surfing and triathlons. In 2011, she completed one of the longest distance triathlon, the Ironman Western Australia. She is also a personal trainer with a degree in Exercise and Sports Science from Kapiolani Community College.
She is currently teaching at Corepower Yoga and Kahala Body Studio. In 2013, Juri completed the Yoga Ed teacher training and prenatal yoga teacher training with Brynne Caleda. She believes fitness as a whole gives you an opportunity to drive yourself beyond what you believe you can achieve. Her goal is to share that feeling of empowerment and excitement with more people through yoga and fitness.
