My public classes and teacher trainings are held at MAHA YOGA, which I opened in August 2018 in order to fulfill a long time dream to create a space that offers locals and visitors to Maui high quality yoga in a beautiful space.
The studio is situated right in the heart of the North Shore’s bustling and eclectic Paia Town, behind the famous Charley's Restaurant.
Paia and Maui's North Shore are famous for its beaches, warm water, hikes, big wave surfing, windsurfing, kite-surfing, open ocean paddling and YOGA! Maui is a mecca for nature and water lovers from all around the world.
Maui is appreciated for its year round near perfect weather, healthy lifestyle, fresh food, outdoor living and aloha spirit – all of which support the yogic lifestyle and practices.
Students will enjoy a more intimate learning and practice environment, as the studio accommodates a maximum of 18 students per class. This allows for personal attention by the teachers to better support student’s practice needs and goals.
The space is fully equipped with chairs, bolsters, blankets, blocks, straps, sandbags and eye pillows.
Large windows allow for lots of natural light and airflow (but if its gets to hot and humid we have aircon to cool you down!)
Free parking is a short 2 minute walk from the studio either next to the Shell Garage or at the Community Centre next to the Church.
Paid parking is located right outside the studio or next to the Post Office.
Things to do
Being so central students can easily enjoy the pre/post class shopping and eating activities that make this historic north shore plantation town so popular with island visitors. Situated right next to Mana Foods and Choice students can stroll over to enjoy the healthy fresh food and juice offerings that complement and support all the good work done on the mat. There are also many other restaurants and coffee shops that allow you to chill out with friends after class and soak up the relaxed North Shore vibe.
A post class swim is one of the best ways to cool off after class. Paia is blessed with numerous beaches all within walking distance of the studio. The Cove at Baldwin Beach, Baby Beach, Paia Bay and Tavares are some of the closest ones, all safe for swimming.
On those days when the ocean swells get big the North Shore is the place to be! Watching the surfers, kiters and windsurfers riding big waves at Ho'okipa and Jaws provides lots of thrilling entertainment and photo opportunities!
Paia is central for visiting upcountry towns such as Makawao and Pukalani (15 min drive), and is on the way to Haiku and the road to Hana. Kahului Town and the airport are 10 minutes away and on the bus routes. Kula is an easy 25 minutes drive where one can visit the Lavendar Farm, Ulupalakua Winery, Botanical Garden, and Zip lines. Haleakala Crater is a 40 minute drive, offering spectacular views across the island!
There are many lovely hikes on the North Shore and Upcountry for those looking to explore more inland scenery.
