to Maui’s original & most established Yoga & Dance studio for over 23 years  

Our yoga studio is back open!

Weekend Yoga Teacher Training begins Friday, June 5th – Details

Dear Maui Yoga Shala Ohana,
It is with an open heart and sound mind that we are officially re-opened for in-studio classes after receiving the green light from Mayor Victorino for yoga, pilates, and dance studios to open back up for business with the new guidelines.
We will also continue to livestream all classes online via the Zoom app, so our yogis/yoginis near and far can join in all our classes. 
Your health and safety is always a top priority for us and we have implemented new standards to ensure all of us can continue to practice together safely. 
Our space offers an open space to practice with fresh Maui air circulating. We will have all doors and windows open in each studio as well as some classes taking place in our outdoor garden space. We have cleaned and sanitized all studio spaces, including all high traffic spots I.e. doorknobs, faucets, toilets, sinks, bar, and will continue to do so throughout the day.
In addition, we are implementing new standards, including: 
* Maximum of 8 students in-studio for each class. Please sign up in advance via our website to ensure a spot. If full, there is always the option to tune into our online livestream of the class. 
* Studio spaces are thoroughly cleaned before and after each class. 
* Hand sanitizer available for use upon entering and exiting the Shala. Bathrooms are equipped with anti-bacterial soap.  
* We have advised teachers not to offer hands on assists at this time and to maintain 6 ft of distance. 
* No mats for rent. Students must bring their own.
* No props for use. Bring your own if you wish to use. 
* We will be implementing a temperature check before class. Anyone showing symptoms will not be able to join. 
We truly appreciate you choosing to practice with us, and to ensure everyone’s practice is comfortable and safe, we ask you to follow these guidelines:
* Please stay home if you feel unwell or have any symptoms (even minor). 
* It is strongly encouraged for you to bring a large towel to cover your mat.  
* As much as we love having your energy at the Shala for practice, we will not have space for social gathering. Please do not congregate in the lobby or studio before/after class to socialize. 
* Face coverings are optional. 
Yoga is something we need now more than ever. We look forward to seeing you in class with us, and together we will take care of one another and our studio space.
Our Island Fresh Cafe will also be opening up soon for breakfast and lunch takeout! Stay tuned for an official announcement! 
Mahalo nui loa to our incredible student base and clientele.   Malama Pono – take care and be well, shine your light bright!

The instructors were all amazing and highly attuned to the students in the class.  The energy and expertise they bring, along with the sense of culture and propriety, which seems to come from all the members of the staff, makes this place really special.  The Maui Yoga Shala is a wonderful place to strengthen and heal your body.  I can’t wait to go back!

The Maui Yoga and Dance Shala is a place for healing and expressing the beauty of the human spirit.  Located in the former historic Paia Train Depot along with our Island Fresh Cafe,  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. Nadia Toraman founded the original Maui Yoga Shala over 23 years ago in Paia out of a desire to share her passion for yoga. She went on to start Hawaii yoga teacher trainings, retreats, musical events, and to host well known teachers from around the globe for yoga workshops.  We have yoga and dance teachers of many styles and backgrounds, providing for the needs of a wide variety of students and the essence remains the same – a strong love for the practice that continues today. The Maui Yoga and Dance Shala welcomes students from all around the world on its 200HR yoga teacher training. Come to the station, leave your baggage out the door, move, breathe, and explore your body and soul, and enjoy the ride of your life in greater grace and joy.
