    "It is difficult for me to use words to describe my teacher training experience at Shambhava Yoga Konalani, because I feel my words could never do it justice. To start, the ashram is located on the big island of Hawaii and that location is hard to beat. The ashram is amongst a mango orchard, rudraksha forest and offers a breathtaking panoramic view of the ocean. Not only is it in a beautiful location, but it is inhabited by even more beautiful people and mentors.With such a small class size I was able to receive a lot of one on one attention from the instructors. We covered a ton of material, but the repetition and individual help made it manageable and memorable. Gaining teaching experience was a primary focus of the course and several hours were dedicated to teaching our fellow students. I felt very confident in my teaching ability after completing the course. As much as this training was a positive experience, I must stress that positive and easy are two completely different things. This training challenged me physically, mentally and especially spiritually. I do not recommend this training to someone who is not open to having a spiritual experience. I feel so blessed to have gained a living Guru and to now be part of a lineage. If you come to Shambhava Yoga Konalani teacher training with an open mind, body and soul you will walk away a better yoga practitioner and person."

    "One of the most relaxing yoga sessions I have been to. It was so relaxing to be outdoors with a great view and sounds of nature. The practice was the right amount of effort for the setting, and Abaya gave a lot of guidance on poses. There was some core strength but no lifts, stands or inversions. We also devoted 20 min at the end to breath control and shivasana that I liked. I would definitely come back before our vacation is over."

    "I've just finished my 200hrs yoga teacher's training at Shambhava Yoga Konalani. For the past three weeks, it was one of the best experiences I had. Through the asanas, meditations, and seva I was able to deepen my practice. I'm very grateful that I was able to meet such an amazing teachers, Satyam and Abhaya. They are the ones who made the training possible. Great environment and great teachers; those two are one of the most important things to deepen your practice; Kolanani got both of those and I highly recommend anyone who loves yoga and Hawaii!"

    "This training blew my mind!! So much peace, knowledge, and love given during the three weeks. Every day was nourishing, from the food that was prepared with love to the hours of time each teacher spent with us and for us. They made sure that we were pushing ourselves out of our comfort zones to gain knowledge, education, and experience but it was never too much. This training was exactly what I needed and so much more than I was looking for. I am excited to become a teacher and look forward to learning more with Konalani in the future."

    "I did my yoga teacher training here, and therefore took part in not just the training itself but the public yoga classes, meditation classes, and kirtan programs. "

    "Public classes: There is nothing like doing yoga on an outdoor deck gazing at the bodhi tree and watching whales jump in the ocean. The sunset class has the added bonus of watching the sun set while doing your Warrior 2. The teachers are experienced, thoughtful, fun, and friendly. The entire atmosphere is laid-back and relaxed. I loved going to class on the Konalani deck. Another plus is that the yoga classes generally include pranayama breathing exercises and ample meditation at the end...a very well-rounded yoga practice that you can't find everywhere."

    "The Kirtan and meditation sits take place in the shrine and are for those more interested in spiritual growth and exploring a living tradition. The kirtan (singing/chanting/meditation) is particularly engaging and powerful...a nice introduction into the spiritual traditions of Shambhava Yoga."

    "Teacher training: The 200hr teacher training was everything. I couldn't imagine doing it outside of an immersion atmosphere, and being able to do it in Hawaii was just an added bonus. Every day is yoga, from before sun up to after sun down, which is intense, but an incredible learning atmosphere. I came in not sure I wanted to teach and doubting my confidence/ability to do so, and within one week I knew I wanted to teach and felt at ease in our teaching workshops. The addition of thorough meditation and personal spiritual growth is challenging, but integral, it helped me absorb and understand everything else I was learning. I felt like family here, well-cared-for and expected to succeed. I would definitely recommend this training."

    "Really fantastic place to practice yoga. Friendly fellow yogis to practice alongside of, many of whom were there for their teacher training. The view, the breeze, the birds chirping, all were wonderfully calming and rejuvenating...I'll definitely return!"

    "I choose this place because of this immersion experience. I want not only to talk about yoga in the class for 3 hours once a week, but to live it and to think about it all day. I guess thats why the three of us had such connection, because we live it."

    "I wish there were more than 5 stars to give Shambhava Yoga Konalani. From the solid teacher training I now have the confidence to share, to the daily support of the beautiful teachers. (thank you Abhya and Satyam) The amazing food we had the privilege to eat during our meal times (thank you Sarah) while making friends over looking the breathtaking view of the ocean. I can honestly say I'm looking forward to the day I go back to this special place, it has helped me on my path and I will never forget my experience."

    "I recently completed the 200 RYT training and the experience at Konalani exceeded my expectations. Not only did I develop a solid foundation of the yoga asanas, I also began a meditation practice that has transformed my life and my yoga practice. I feel very fortunate to have left Konalani with the tools needed to be a dynamic yoga instructor, but also with life skills that I continue to build upon in my day to day life back at home."

    "Ashram life at Konalani is a spirit-filled, life-enhancing experience. Because the training is done in a small group you have the opportunity to get to know your fellow teacher trainees and develop deep friendships that will last a lifetime. The shared meals (some of the best I've ever had), seva, meditation practice and training on the incredible yoga deck foster an invaluable sense of community and support."

    "The physical setting at Konalani is like no other. Can you imagine spending your days practicing yoga on a deck that overlooks the ocean and a magnificent Bodhi tree? The weather on the Big Island is perfect... always warm and often with a cool breeze. During those breaks in the training, the beach is easily accessible for a refreshing dip."

    "I cannot say enough about my experience at Shambhava Yoga Konalani. I highly recommend it to anyone seeking an immersion teacher training program that will provide a comprehensive educational experience along with the opportunity for personal growth in a beautiful, serene setting."

    "I recently completed my yoga teacher training at Shambhava Yoga Konalani in Hawaii. I feel so fortunate to have chosen this program to complete my training. I knew it would be a great experience. Now, after completing the program, it not only deepened my personal yoga practice, but truly did open my heart to new possibilities of trying to live my practice on and off the mat."

    "The peaceful and welcoming environment at Konalani help to foster deeper connections with the Inner Self and there is a nourishing quality that you get from the beautiful and peaceful property, complete with stunning views overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The staff at Konalani all have a deep intuition and are very mindful of their students and guests, always looking for ways to make things more comfortable whether with the rooms, food accommodations or relating to meditation practice."

    "They offer a comprehensive and in depth teacher training program that provides many hands on experiences to really engage in your training. After 3 weeks, I feel very capable and ready to begin teaching yoga. I look forward to taking the training I received at Konalani and gaining new experiences as a yoga teacher."

    "Prior to coming to Konalani, I knew I would have a great experience. All of the little details, like yoga classes on their lovely yoga deck (complete with a stunning view of a huge bodhi tree and the ocean), delicious meals full of flavour and love, to the laughter and rich concersations made this an exceptional experience. I made wonderful connections with my fellow yogis taking their training and I have gained two new mentors as I carry on with this path of yoga. Thank you Konalani for providing me with so many heart opening experiences and filling me with compassion, stillness, peace and gratitude!"

    "Abhaya is a gifted, experienced and sensitive yoga teacher. She is intellectually sharp and spiritually deeply connected. For me, even more than the yoga, she understands and communicates an authentic spiritual essence, largely through her own amazing commitment to the journey."

    "Abhaya's classes are thoughtful and from the heart. Her infectious smile will encourage you to try things you may have never thought of trying. She is excited about yoga and you can feel that in all of her choices and cues. Through her commitment to living an authentic yogic lifestyle any person attending her class will have an opportunity to experience yoga. She talk the talk and walks the walk!"

    "This place is absolutely amazing. The yoga takes place outside on a deck over looking the ocean and a huge banyan tree. The teacher is on point other instruction and knowledge of breath body and meditation. I took classes at 3 different places while I visited the island and this place far exceeded the others."

    "I've taken both the morning and the sunset classes here along with a meditation class. This is an amazing location (I'd recommend standing to the left of the room for the best view of the giant "tree of life" and the ocean) with teachers that I've really enjoyed. If you haven't had a chance yet- give it a go- you won't be disappointed."

    "The yoga deck at Konalani is perhaps the most beautiful place I have ever seen to practice yoga. It looks out over the water and at times you can see whales breeching. In savasana, the smell of tropical flowers wafts over you and the singing birds lull you into relaxation. The curriculum is well developed and taught by experienced senior teachers. The retreat format allows you to really immerse yourself into the experience and be a part of ashram life. The food is amazing and the accommodations are simple but comfortable. I highly recommend Konalani teacher training. It prepared me well for teaching and opened doors to develop a more advanced meditation and spiritual practice."

    "I am pleased to recommend Shambhava Yoga training to anyone who wants to connect their meditation practice to their yoga practice. The spiritual foundation for this training is highly specific, rooted in the traditions of Kashmir Shaivism, but their application is universal, as this tradition favors spiritual development while fully engaged in the world. The ashram provides a solid foundation in Hatha yoga, the basis for all other yoga styles, and the Hawaiian setting is pure delight - the climate makes the early rise and full schedule so much more pleasant!"

    "I came to the Konalani Yoga Ashram to take the final two trainings to complete my 500hr Hatha Yoga Teacher certificate from Shambhava Yoga (a Yoga Alliance school). I took levels 1,2,3 and Meditation Teacher level 1 at the school's mountain retreat center at Shoshoni Yoga Retreat. I love this Ashram! When you take HYTT here you truly feel "part of the family" in this sweet setting. The residential staff is very small so you have lots of opportunity to pitch in and help out....just like family. The training schedule is very mindful of the need to take a moment to reflect and study hall on the beach is always a trainee favorite. The beautiful Meditation room has a direct view of the ocean as does the yoga deck where all Hatha Yoga classes (open to public) and most of the training sessions are held. lovely and inspirational, genuine and authentic, sharing practice of all aspects of Yoga with these wonderful yogis is a unique experience and true gift."

    "This may be one of your most memorable yoga studios you'll ever visit. The "studio" is a wooden deck covered with a white canvas "tent", overlooking a garden with a gorgeous Boddhi tree with the beauty of the Pacific Ocean as the backdrop. It's a very new studio, classes are affordable, and it is not crowded (yet). It is well worth the drive from Kona or any surrounding area to take a class. The atmosphere itself made me fall in love and my yoga practice that much more enriching that day."
