Hawaii 200 and 300 hour Yoga
 Alliance registered programs on Maui

Sending you all Aloha’s during this time, remember peace and joy can be found in each breath. Take a moment and breathe.

Thank you for connecting. We truly believe yoga is needed now more than ever; as things change around us, we must take time to ground and immerse ourselves deeper in our yoga practice. With your safety and our local communities’ safety in mind we are excited to share a revamped fun, intensive and transformative yoga teacher training program to comply with COVID-19 mandates.

The Pre-Travel Testing Program is currently in effect.   Pre-travel testing provides travelers can bypass the 10-day quarantine if they are tested no earlier than 72 hours before their flight arrives with an FDA-approved nucleic acid amplification test (NAAT), performed using a nasal swab, and can show proof of negative test results from a CLIA certified laboratory. 

Due to the changing nature of COVID-19, we ask participants to continue to monitor Hawaii updates via Hawaii Tourism website. We expect all our participants and teachers to continue to comply with state and federal regulations throughout their entire visit.  The training group size will be small and within the limit permissible for those to gather in one space and ensure social distancing.  All participants must get tested for COVID-19 prior to arrival and possible testing on Maui.

If quarantine is necessary, the location will be at an approved hotel that is permitted to house guests in quarantine.

Follow your dreams, expand your world and take your love of Yoga to the next level on Magical Maui!   

Our premier yoga teacher training program was created 20 years ago and has produced top teachers, studio owners and practitioners worldwide.  The Maui Yoga Shala is one of the most established studios in Hawaii and Maui’s original yoga & dance studio. From excelling your personal practice to becoming a teacher at your favorite studio to becoming a yoga professional,  the training program is designed to fulfill that goal.   We believe that yoga is for everyone – all levels and ages are accepted.   

Covid -19 Current Status:


All individuals, both residents and visitors, arriving from out-of-state to Hawaii are still subject to a mandatory 14-day self-quarantine at a permitted hotel or family residence.

The start of the state’s Pre-Travel Testing Program has been delayed to October 1, at the earliest.

These unprecedented times have resulted in all of us having to change and adapt to a new way of being.

  • There are many things to consider – our own health, the health of everyone else, our finances, the economy at large…  
  • A lot of the ways we are accustomed to living have been taken away from us.  We have to follow health and safety guidelines and comply with the current regulations.
  • We may be experiencing less social connection and be in need of support.

We truly believe yoga is needed now more than ever, with your safety and our local communities’ safety in mind we are excited to share a revamped fun, intensive and transformative yoga teacher training program to comply with COVID-19 mandates.  

Our revamped 27-day training, allow our participants to begin their studies during the mandatory 14-day quarantine virtually in their designated quarantine location.  The location will be at an approved hotel which is permitted to house guests in quarantine.  The new training format will give flexibility for more freedom to enjoy Maui once quarantine is over.  

 Due to the changing nature of COVID-19 we ask participants to continue to monitor Hawaii updates via the Hawaii Tourism website. We expect all our participants and teachers to continue to comply with state and federal regulations throughout their entire visit.  The training group size will be small and within the limit permissible for those to gather in one space and ensure social distancing.  We ask all participants to get tested for COVID-19 prior to arrival and possible testing on Maui.

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”.

– Svetlana G.

Nadia, Shakta, Jennifer, Lee and everyone who contributed to our training at the Maui Yoga Shala were amazing teachers and I am so thankful my path led me to them and to this training. The Maui Yoga Shala feels like home!

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.

-Gianna W.

Maui Yoga Shala was an incredible learning experience! I feel blessed to have outstanding teachers that took time, care, love and attention to teach the principles of yoga. Maui Yoga Shala is above and beyond! Not only did I learn the skills and foundations to teach yoga safely, but I am now forever apart of their Ohana! This truly unique experience allowed me to express my authentic self, listen to my inner wisdom and has given me the knowledge I can share with the world.

-Niki M.

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!
