Go for quality! Become a yoga professional! The Maui Yoga Shala is one of the most established studios on Hawaii and Maui's original yoga and dance studio. This training will be led by Nadia Toraman who has been teaching for over 20 years now along with the rest of the team members having each over 10 years of teaching experience. 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.
The lovely and colorful trainee house is located in historical Paia town. The house is furnished with a full kitchen and cooking supplies, beds with linen, as well as a washing machine, and patio and yard out back. The rooms are shared with the option to have a private room.
The organic grocery store, Mana is one block away. The yoga shala is about a 12-minute walk and Maui's sparkling beaches are just a minute down the road by foot!
During this training, you will experience 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. Maui Yoga Shala believes that as teachers, it is needed to cultivate good physical, mental, and emotional health so that you can share that positive energy in the classrooms.
All teachers at Maui Yoga Shala 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. Maui Yoga Shala looks forward to welcoming you to their teaching ohana (family)!
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.
This day will be free for everyone.
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 in the forests and waterfalls, watch the whales, and visit the volcano while enjoying the laid-back vibe of the north shore. You may also book a massage at the studio for an additional cost.
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.
