Trainings on Maui



We invite you to join us here on the magical island of Maui, Hawaii for 22 glorious days of yoga, fun, friendship and personal growth.

We meet daily to practice and study at the beautiful Maui Yoga Shala, located on the world famous Maui North Shore. We believe that to teach well you need to be of optimal physical and mental health so we can share that positive and uplifting energy with our students. During our time together you will enjoy daily yoga and an opportunity to experience the healthy lifestyle of the islands, soaking up the Mana, resting, eating and sleeping well, so that you leave us rejuvenated and inspired.  

When not in class you will be able to enjoy the island and all that Maui has to offer in terms of beautiful beaches, swimming, hiking forests and waterfalls, whale watching , eating good food and enjoying the aloha spirit of our North Shore community.  Our training days are busy with only one full day off so we recommend coming a few days early or stay a few days after to enjoy the island to its fullest before you leave!

Which airport do I fly into?

You will fly into Kahului Airport, just 15 minutes from Paia and the Studio. Taxi and car hire companies are found at the airport.

Do I need to rent a car?

Trainee accommodation is walking distance (15 minutes) from the Shala. Many of the beaches are walking distance but hiring a car will let you explore the island on your day off. Sharing the cost of a hire car makes it even more affordable.

Trainee Accommodations

See rates page for prices including accommodation. If you wish to arrive early or stay later there is a fee of $80/night . Accommodation is shared and self catering and located 15 minutes walking distance from the Studio. This becomes a much more affordable option but should you wish to secure your own accommodation there are a number of lovely hostels, hotels and B&B’s in the area.

Please note that the trainee houses and Studio offer complimentary WIFI


See rates page for prices.  Although the trainee houses are self catering you can save yourself time and effort by making use of our catering package from our recently opened Island Fresh Café! For an additional $665 you will receive:

  • Breakfast
  • Lunch
  • Snack
  • Coffee/tea

Please note that this excludes the 3 days you are not in training. You will be required to make your own arrangements.

If you do not wish to make use of this offer you can buy ad hoc from the Café or bring your own lunches. Please note that although there are breaks throughout the day you will not have time to go into Paia to shop. Please make sure you bring sufficient food and refreshments with you in the morning to last you the full day.

What do I need to bring?

1 x 2 inch 3-ring binder

All pens, highlighters, coloring pens

Computer – for after class research

All required reading material (see curriculum page)

Optional – your own yoga mat

Optional – small medical kit (Paia has a dentist, chiropractor, health store and body workers but the closest pharmacy and hospital is 15 minutes away in Kahului. Although we have a First Aid kit at the studio you may need to bring your own supplies and don’t forget any personal medications you need. Please ensure you have medical insurance. You will be asked to sign an activities waiver and you will be fully responsible for your own actions when not with us.

Will I teach during the training?

The first two weeks are primarily spent in the seat of the student although you will have opportunities to observe classes being taught.

The final week is when you will lead a class. Your “students” will be your fellow trainees, some invited members of the public and one of the teaching faculty.

What clothes shall I bring?

Most of your day is spent inside the studio in class. You may wish to bring a change of clothes for after your morning practice. The weather is a mild all year but we do have winter rains so you may need to bring an umbrella, slightly warmer clothing and appropriate shoes. The study day ends approximately 4pm so you will have at least 2 – 2.5hrs of sunlight left to enjoy yourself. On your day’s off you will be able to go further afield to enjoy more of the island beaches, swimming and hiking and so bring the right clothes and shoes with you (or you can shop from one of the great stores in Paia).

Upon Graduation what am I certified to teach?

You will be certified to teach Hatha Vinyasa Classes. You will be able to register with Yoga Alliance as a RYT- 200 member (Registered Yoga Teacher 200hr). Please note that your registration fee is not included in our rates.
