Yoga Teacher Training

Maui Yoga Loft and Wellness, located a block from the ocean in sunny Kihei, on the south side of Maui, is a beautiful and inspiring environment in which to expand your yoga practice, gain a host of essential teaching skills, and discover your own unique style as a guide along the journey of yoga.

Created by three seasoned instructors with over 50 years of combined teaching experience, the Maui Yoga Loft and Wellness 200 Hour Teacher Training Program uniquely blends the three main yoga styles that emerged from the great T. Krishnamacharya: Iyengar Yoga, Pattabhi Jois’ Aṣṭāṅga Yoga, and Viniyoga. The result is an effective method for transformation that combines vinyasa flow with emphasis on alignment, individual adaptation, and skillful sequencing.

At Maui Yoga Loft and Wellness we are passionate about teacher preparedness. Our mission in this training is to provide the tools, information and practice to help each student launch a safe, successful, sustainable teaching career with heart and integrity. ​Students who earn a training certificate will be well prepared to create and teach quality yoga classes with confidence and skill.

Our 200-Hour Teacher Training Curriculum Includes:

  • Asana alignment, sequencing, adjustments, props & modifications
  • Functional Anatomy
  • Breath Work
  • Meditation Techniques
  • Yoga Sutras
  • Ayurveda
  • Mantra Study

What Is Unique About Maui Yoga Loft and Wellness Teacher Training?

Experience.​ Our primary teacher trainers have over 50 years combined teaching experience, 20 of those years as teacher trainers on the mainland.

Lineage combined with creativity.​ With the in-depth study of the three lineages represented by our teacher trainers, as well as their creative adaptations to modernize practice, our students get the best of old and new.

The legacy of Krishnamacharya.​ Widely considered to be “the Grandfather of modern yoga”, T. Krishnamacharya had many notable students who went on to spread his teachings — and the popularity of yoga — worldwide. Our training uniquely compares and contrasts the methodologies that arose from three key students of this legendary founding figure: B.K.S. Iyengar, Pattabhi Jois, and T.K.V. Desikachar.

Not just the poses.​ We have taken great care to provide a balanced curriculum to introduce our students to a broad spectrum of yoga practices and concepts that extend beyond the physical practice.

Emphasis on teaching skills, safety, and practice teaching.​ We view our training as fundamentally vocational. Therefore it is our job to provide you with all the training, support, and ample practice you need to get out there and teach safe, successful, real-life classes to real-life people.

Adapt the yoga to the student.​ We believe yoga is for everyone. In this training we teach students how to modify postures and class plans to accommodate a wide range of conditions, limitations, and interests.

Intensive format.​ For off-island participants, those who prefer the immersion experience, or students who wish to complete certification on a compressed timeline we have created a compact 28-day program.

Location, location, location!​ Completely renovated in 2017, the Maui Yoga Loft and Wellness studio space is clean, contemporary and elegant. We are located in a prime ocean view spot in Kihei, on Maui’s sunny south shore. Within a short walk are restaurants, shops and a grocery, and a three-minute stroll through the park across the street leads to the water’s edge and a local surf break.
