"Stop searching and come to Konalani! :D"
Just finished a YTT-200 with Konalani Yoga: I cannot rave enough about it. The staff is incredibly knowledgeable and warm; as a reasonably experienced practitioner, I learned SO much that I didn't already know from them. The flow of the program was seamless and the quantity of knowledge transferred was immense! The best part about Konalani is that it's a working ashram, so you're integrated into the spiritual community, too. The meditation and pranayama training is incredible! The program really feels very holistic, looking at the practice of yoga as a whole, not just asanas. I really feel ready to teach, even after I just graduated.

It’s so well planned out and really helps you grow and build confidence in your skills. The location is of course, magical.

I loved the environment, the way the whole course was set up, how easy and approachable they made the content, the fun surprise excursions and Picknicks at the beach and the perfect team work of the teachers. Their way of teaching and approaching us was amazing and both teachers have a big heart and were always down for a fun reference.
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.
