We invite you to join us here on the magical island of Maui, Hawaii, to be immersed in yoga, sunshine, friendship, memories, and personal growth. Our Yoga Alliance certified teacher training is designed to lay a solid foundation for practitioners wishing to grow into teachers of this powerful art form. Through in-depth study of asana, pranayama, teaching methodology, and yoga philosophy, aspiring teachers are given the tools to share the essence and joy of yoga. Experiencing the healthy lifestyle of Hawaii, soaking up the mana, eating well, resting, and being inspired, will give you a chance to rejuvenate on a personal level. We believe that as teachers, we need to cultivate good physical, mental, and emotional health, so that we can share that positive energy in our classrooms. All our teachers live and breathe the spirit of aloha, and are dedicated to supporting you during this transformative process. A teacher training with Maui Yoga Shala is more than just about loving yoga, it is about loving life! It is about love, and where else to experience that than in the land of aloha! We look forward to welcoming you to our teaching ohana (family)!
The three-bedroom trainee house is in Skill village, adjacent to Baldwin Avenue. A five-minute drive or a 20-minute walk from the historical plantation town of Paia, and a 10 to 15-minute walk from the shala. Accommodations are shared bedrooms of two persons per room. The house is self catering. The house is simply furnished with all kitchen utensils, beds with linen, as well as a washing machine, and small yard out back.
Our program is comprehensive, and will cover all the requirements as presented by Yoga Alliance for you to register as a registered yoga teacher (RYT) upon your certification.
We meet daily to practice and study at the beautiful Maui Yoga Shala, located in the idyllic town of Paia, a treasure on Maui's north shore. Located in the former Paia Train Depot, we strive to be a portal for all seekers to connect deeply with their own bodies and each other, and move as their hearts desire.
When not in class, there will be time to swim and snorkel in the ocean, enjoy the pristine beaches of Baldwin, Paia bay and Ho'okipa, watch the sunset, hike our forests and waterfalls, watch the whales, and visit the volcano while enjoying the laid back vibe of the north shore.
You will fly into Kahalui, Maui airport (OGG), which is a 15 minute drive from the north shore and the historical plantation town of Paia, where the Maui Yoga Shala is located.
There are many car rental companies based at the airport. Renting a car will make life fun on Maui, as after class you can visit the local beaches, go for walks, and in the evenings enjoy some of the excellent local restaurants and then take longer adventures on your day off (Sunday afternoon). You can easily rent from companies such as Enterprise, Avis, Aloha, Kimo (it is best to do a Google search to find what deals work best for you).
If you are staying in the trainees house and do not wish to rent your own car, you can easily walk from the house to the shala. It is a beautiful walk down the hill of around 10-15 minutes. The walk from the Shala into the town of Paia is another 10 minutes down the hill. There is no bus service along this route, so be prepared to walk if you do not have a car.
