Jinju Dasalla, PhD, RYT, is on a mission to share the medicine of “flow” and inspire the awakening, honoring, and celebration of the sacred feminine fire and wisdom within all beings. Dr. Dasalla is a co-founder of the NaiAsa Institute (formerly Soul Flow Alchemy), where she directs programs for individuals and organizations pioneering new paradigms of healing, education and transformational learning based in scientific, spiritual and somatic principles. These programs include women’s coaching journeys, retreats, somatic life coaching, and therapeutic flow arts.
One of Dasalla’s many passions include sharing NaiAsana™ yoga, her most recent creation, as a way for women to come home - home to the heart, the body, and the soul. NaiAsana is a Hawaiian-inspired somatic & shamanic healing practice weaving yoga, dance, and flow arts, to awaken the essence of the Sacred Feminine. Both on and off the mat, this vinyasa of spiral, rhythmic and cross-body movement patterns, often incorporating props such as poi or the hula hoop, powerfully restores and re-patterns the nervous system.
Dr. Dasalla is also a former Neuroscience Research Fellow of the National Institute for Health (NIH), a published author in the April 2018 Brain Research Bulletin, faculty member of Hawai’i Yoga Institute, and was featured in Elle.com, after her successful debut at Wanderlust 2016. She is also the author of upcoming book, Beauty that Transforms, based on the successful transformational coaching program birthed in Hawai’i.
She currently lives in Bali with her beloved Nova and their 3 ½ year old son, Sekai.
From 2010 to 2014, Nova Dasalla is America's #1 ranked acrobatic paragliding pilot who is also known for being the first American to pull off a trick called the Infinite Tumble. He is probably even more known for his film, Infinite Stumbling, that tells the story of his life-altering accident in 2009 when one of his routine maneuvers went dramatically wrong, smashing him into a mountain. Not only did he manage to learn how to walk again but he also was given the gift of embracing life, love, and gratitude on a profound level. This short film has been shown in multiple film festivals around the world. Nova still flies and is an extraordinary, living example of what it takes to face fears, engage flow, and always aspire beyond the norm.
