“Minister Pato Banton” is also a Grammy nominated reggae legend that has recorded and toured the world with The English Beat, Steel Pulse, UB40 & STING (to name just a few). During the year 2000, while in the midst of a global trek with Peter Gabriel’s WOMAD organization, that combined huge festivals with music outreach programs to poor and underprivileged communities, Pato learned that two of his sons had been shot in a drive-by shooting. He immediately put his career on hold and turned his sorrow into the impetus for community & educational initiatives that would consume the next years of his life. Although his four-decade career has also earned him a place in the British Music Hall of Fame and a BBC Lifetime Achievement Award for his tireless community work to reduce gun crime, his journey has increasingly transcended the music business into arenas of youth outreach, teaching in schools and colleges, writing new curriculum for children with learning disabilities and Global Spiritual Ministry. Now based in Southern California, Pato & his wife Antoinette Rootsdawtah continues to record and tour the world extensively, conveying a positive & uplifting message of global peace and love for humanity while simultaneously serving as a Teacher, Counselor, Mentor & Minister “of the verb” to his Fans, Friends & Spiritual Family.”

__ 𝗬𝗢𝗚𝗔: PASCALE MICHEL -
Please bring a Mat, towel, water….
Lots of dynamic movement weaved into and with yoga, conditioning, cardio. It’s sweaty and fun, challenging both mobility and endurance. Class always finishes off with deep stretches….Pascale loves music, and curates diverse playlists intentionally based on the energy invited for each specific class.
Pascale has been actively teaching yoga since 2009 and currently teaches on both the East and West side of the Big Island. She encourages the exploration of somatic movement, creative expression, and freedom. Shakti flow is a dynamic fusion of yoga, dance and core integration. This liberating practice allows for the conscious connection to the sacred feminine through building strength, grace and vitality.
