October 2022 Member of the Month, Kiana Cornell!

Our October 2022 Member of the Month is Kanaka Mauoli, ​and has been a Maui Pilates Studio Ohana member since August 2021. We want to offer a big Ho’omaika’i ‘ana (congratulations) to Kiana Cornell! Kiana is ​a dedicated teacher at St. Anthony ​School​, ​a loving daughter, a ​good friend, and a ​dedicated wife of 19 years. She was born and raised ​here on Maui. After spending a few years on the mainland​, Kiana decided to return home to Maui. “My parents are the reason I came back, ​as they are a two for one deal​. I am blessed that can spend time with them.” ​When asked about her experience at Maui Pilates Studio, here is what Kiana had to say, “I always walk out of class​, glad that I came. ​Since starting my Pilates Journey​, I stand taller, I am more balanced, and I am constantly setting new milestones to accomplish. Speaking of accomplishments, ​planks on the Reformer…mentally, I couldn’t do them for the longest time. Needless to say, my first time doing them was a victory!” We asked Kiana about who motivates her to get up each morning​, choosing to live a healthy life. We couldn’t ​have been more proud​er when Kiana told us she is motivated by one of our very own Maui Pilates Studio Ohana members, Bernie Freitas!!! ​"Mama B's example of always making time for her workout here at Maui Pilates Studio ​is what motivates me. I plan to keep on being a Maui Pilates Studio Ohana member, and look forward to the stronger me yet to be.” You probably don’t know it, but there are a few ​amazing things we just have to share about Kiana: Kiana was ​once a Zumba instructor! Kiana used to be a Singing Waitress on the Spirit of Boston yacht! Kiana sang at ​one and only Carnegie Hall!

Kiana ​is grateful for her journey, and wanted ​to send a special shoutout​, “Mahalo, Kellie and Or​, for taking such good care of me!”
