Our mission is to make yoga, dance, and gymnastics accessible to all individuals in the Greater New York City Area. Our vision is an inclusive world of empowered individuals with strong minds, bodies, and spirits connected to the global community. Founder Paul “Keoni” Chun’s middle name is a fitting one. In Hawaiian the word means “a quality of movement that is gentle, steadfast, and soothing.” Keoni Movement Arts (KMA) imbues its programs with these qualities, as it shares joy through the movement arts of Yoga, Dance, and Gymnastics (Yo-Dan-Nastics). Paul founded KMA in 2008, and the organization began offering programming in 2012. Paul has deep experience with each of the three movement arts behind Yo-Dan-Nastics. In high school and college, he was a competitive gymnast, in his early adult life, he danced professionally, and over the last 20 years, both as a practitioner and a professional teacher, yoga has been one of his major passions.
