We offer the same in depth, mind, body and soul expanding program in two training formats.

The Intensive training is the express version for those who have a limited time frame or prefer a full immersion experience of 4 weeks of near continuous training. We are offering this format during the winter and spring this year. 

The Extended format offered only in the summer, is great for those who are working or studying and cannot take off a month straight. This format starts with 6 consecutive days of Immersion and the rest is only Friday night and weekends. Get the immersion experience, plus time to integrate the wealth of information you will gain.

Each training consists of 3 Modules which can be taken and paid for separately if needed. Module I is a 6-Day Immersion into the heart of yoga. The Immersion is a wonderful program to be taken separately for those who are fascinated by yoga but may not be ready to commit to a full training. Modules II & III focus on preparing you to be a thinking, creative yoga teacher.  Immersion and full 200hr training programs also include Unlimited Yoga classes.

*6-Day Immersion is equal to the first 6 days of training and may be taken separately by those who do not wish to become yoga teachers or cannot complete the program at this time.

Why do we offer teacher training?

Our teacher trainers believe in Yoga Hawaii's mission to foster personal empowerment by teaching people to improve and maintain their own health through the practices of yoga.  By training others to be responsible yoga teachers, we expand our reach in this community and beyond.  The focus of our training is first to deepen your understanding of the roots and meaning of yoga as well as the techniques that make it a healing practice, and second to provide the tools that you need to be an effective teacher of these healing practices to others.

Maya Siklai, E-RYT 200, RYT 300, YACEP
After teaching for 8 of the past 18 years since she began practicing yoga, Maya Siklai has seen the incredible transformations a regular practice can create in students of all abilities and all walks of life. Her passion for spreading yoga as a way to address the general lack of vibrant health and well being in our modern society led her to take over ownership of Yoga Hawaii in 2011 and to begin sharing her unique vision of yoga through teacher training. Having observed that many new yoga teachers lacked a focus on safety and basic teaching skills after a 200HR training, she set out to offer a teacher training program that would fill that gap. Maya's soulful, yet alignment-intensive style of teaching and dedication to the defining principals of yoga will help prepare you to share yoga with your community and the world.

Victoria, E-RYT 500, YACEP
Yin, Restorative, Children's Yoga Teacher, Thai Massage Therapist

Victoria is a lifelong learner with a passion for cultivating knowledge for personal growth and healing care for others. Though she holds both a BA in psychology and Music Therapy, and an MA in Social Work, Victoria eschewed a traditional professional career for her personal passions of yoga, aerial dance, music and body work. She has completed over two dozen yoga training programs with specialties in Yin, Restorative, Trance Dance, Acro and children’s yoga, and has studied Thai Massage with 3 different respected teachers. She is a massage therapist in training and esthetician, who is passionate about natural living and preventative health care. All of Victoria’s experience on and off the mat as a teacher, healer and practitioner contribute to her compassionate and enthusiastic style as a yoga teacher, trainer of teachers and mentor.

Why should you join this training?

  • Learn to create and deliver your own well-rounded yoga classes
  • Learn how to customize your teaching to meet your students' needs
  • Passionate trainers with over a decade of teaching experience

  • Ayurveda, Mantra, Meditation, Chakras, History & Philosophy, Self-Massage,  Assisting, and more
  • Modular format allows flexible schedules and level of commitment

You may feel you want to master the practices of yoga for your own empowerment, or you feel the beneficial effects it has on your own life and want to empower others.  Our training satisfies both desires. You can chose to take the first Immersion Module of the training alone or continue with Modules II and III and become a certified teacher.  Often people begin a training thinking they don't want to teach, that the training is just for themselves, but ultimately we all find a way to share what we've learned with others.  This training will prepare you to share in your own way, whether in a public classroom, quietly with our loved one's at home, or through your living example.

The beauty of yoga is that it helps you ride the inevitable changes of life a little more gracefully, a little more joyfully and that is hard NOT to share!
