4. Yoga Hawaii

Yoga Hawaii owners Tania Jo Ingrahm and Rupali Embry have each been practicing yoga for more than two decades. The two were originally in the magazine publishing business, but were looking for a change. So, 11 years ago, they opened Yoga Hawaii. The studio has been a success and, in May, Ingrahm and Embry expanded their space for a retail shop. Participants practice in mainly vinyasa and ashtanga styles, but there’s a class for everyone. “We just want to keep yoga fun!” says Ingrahm. 1152 Koko Head Ave., 739-9642, yoga-hawaii.com.



5. Montsuki

Patty Yamasaki is known for her kimono-inspired designer clothing, including women’s formal wear, suit separates, wedding gowns and, by request, men’s shirts. Yamasaki started Montsuki with her mother, Janet, in 1979 and has continued to run the boutique since Janet’s passing. “I look at the fabric, touch it and get a feeling for how to design it,” she says. Yamasaki incorporates kimono silks, whether ones she’s purchased or a client’s piece, and incorporates the material into designs with cotton, linen or other silk. Montsuki also carries jewelry from local designers. 1132 Koko Head Ave., Suite F, 734-3457, Tuesday through Saturday, from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
