For those who are choosing Kauai to re-establish their Mind, Body, and Spirit connections you have made an epic choice. The practice of Hatha Yoga has become a multi million dollar industry in its current reincarnation and its popularity has been embraced on the Garden Island in many forms and styles. So if getting your “asana-on” is an important part of your visit here, Kauai’s hatha yoga scene will not disappoint.
Starting at the north end of Kauai is one of the Island’s ‘oldest’ studios; Yoga Hanalei. Founded in 1999 by Bhavani Maki, Yoga Hanalei offers a full range of classes in the Ashtanga and vinyasa forms of hatha Yoga and is located in the Hanalei Town Center on the second floor of the Redwood Building.
For the Bikram style of yoga enthusiast, in the Princeville Center above Lappert’s Ice Cream, next to Foodland is Princeville Yoga.
For visitors staying in our Kilauea vacation rentals and Anini Beach vacation rentals these studios are a great place to start. Metamorphose Yoga Studio in Kilauea gives the lover of hatha yoga a complete menu of hatha yoga expressions that are sure to engage and inspire.
Also in Kilauea, the Ashtanga yoga (Mysore style) practice takes place daily at 7:30-9:30 a.m every morning (except Sundays) at the the Parish House in Kilauea under the guidance of ‘Eagle” and Pineapple yoga.
