Kalani offers accommodations to suit diverse preferences and budgets. The rustic accommodations are simple, outside-in spaces, which offer comfort and tranquility. Angular octagonal or pentagonal structures are a contrast to box-based architecture, and invite a departure from routine.

Kalani accommodations are not equipped with heating or air conditioning, as Kalani is situated on the east coast of Hawaii island, benefiting from the persistent east-to-west Pacific trade wind flow. Windows in the accommodations are screened, maximizing airflow and views, and there are no phones or televisions in the rooms.

Accommodation types vary from bamboo cottages which can sleep up to three people, lofts with two private bedrooms and a shared space, tree-house rooms located under the cool shade of a large monkeypod tree, free standing bungalows, and two leveled hale lodges.

This program offers students in-depth skills to explore yoga as a vehicle for vibrant health, self-transformation, and personal empowerment. Their curriculum includes a unique blend of alignment based Vinyasa flow, a solid foundation in Hatha yoga, and 200 hours of instruction offered within a therapeutic framework. The instruction will cover a wide range of yoga techniques including yoga postures, anatomy, relaxation, breath awareness, pranayama, meditations to calm the mind, contemplations to transform limiting tendencies into life affirming thought patterns, and the application of clear principles of alignment to create safety, balance, and freedom in yoga poses.

Students explore concepts from Ayurveda, the Upanishads, Patanjali, and the chakra system as frameworks for the application of yoga as a journey towards radiant health and wellbeing. The asana emphasis includes both level one and two alignment based Vinyasa flow sequencing as well as gentler and restorative variations. Rather than offer standard sequencing or rigid methodologies, students are exposed to frameworks that inspire each trainee to adapt the practices, awaken their creativity, and find their own authentic voice as a teacher. Graduates of this program feel empowered to teach a variety of yoga class types, including all levels Vinyasa yoga, alignment-based classes, yoga foundations, senior, gentle, and Restorative.

The course outline includes techniques training and practice for 120 contact hours, teaching methodology for 30 contact hours, anatomy and physiology for 15 contact hours, yoga philosophy, lifestyle, and ethics for yoga teachers for 20 contact hours, practicum for 15 contact hours, and specialty focus and supportive kula.

The Hawaii program is scheduled as a twenty-one day intensive program. While the program days are full, the activities of the day are kept diverse and active. The days really are a wonderful mix of digesting concepts intellectually, applying the concepts experientially, and diving into the practices of yoga. Care is taken within the program schedule to ensure that students have a healthy experience both physically and mentally. They promise not to keep you sedentary for too long. There is physical activity and deep relaxation built in to the program everyday.
