I am forever changed by this beautiful experience. I was looking for a change in life and I am so grateful that I found this studio, btw they are the oldest yoga studio on Maui and probably in all Hawaii.

This program has transformed me in ways that I didn’t even know were possible. Yoga Teacher Training was such a great experience. I felt this was a great time for me to heal from my past while learning how to pass on healing to others. Now I am more balanced, connected, joyful and grateful being, both on and off the mat.

Maui is such a remote place with a unique “Jurassic” nature ecosystem. It was great to discover and experience this tropical paradise, as they call it “the heart chakra of our planet”.

I did my YTT here and it was the greatest experience of my life. The teachers are so well educated and thorough with classes. Whether a first timer or a life-long yogi, you are guaranteed to leave this studio a different person. The energy and the atmosphere are addicting to be around and the love is so so real.  The Shala is attached to a little cafe with delicious fresh foods and they have fun events sometimes too! If you’re ever in the area and have the opportunity to walk through the front doors of this Shala, I promise you will not regret it.

I am so grateful for my transformational experience at Maui Yoga Shala. One of my favorite parts of the teacher training was having a few different instructors. Shakta, Lee and Jennifer we’re amazing, just to name a few. Several different yoga and teaching styles were offered which made it a well rounded experience. Three weeks is not a ton of time, but these teachers were able to offer a widespread wealth of knowledge concisely. 
The Island fresh Cafe at the studio is a must! The most delicious food and incredible atmosphere!! It was really convenient having it next door to the Shala during the training. Both are situated in the perfect quiet location surrounded by flowers and art and it makes the Shala very welcoming and cozy.
I was lucky enough to practice with an amazing and inspiring group of girls who traveled from all over the world. Every training is different but the chance to meet incredible souls is very high here! 
It was a wonderful time at Maui Yoga Shala. Nadia is a great teacher and she will do whatever it takes to make sure it is a happy experience. Mahalo mahalo mahalo!
