Transformative experiences.

I've just finished my 200hrs yoga teacher's training at Shambhava Yoga Konalani. For the past three weeks, it was one of the best experiences I had. Through the asanas, meditations, and seva I was able to deepen my practice. I'm very grateful that I was able to meet such an amazing teachers, Satyam and Abhaya. They are the ones who made the training possible. Great environment and great teachers; those two are one of the most important things to deepen your practice; Kolanani got both of those and I highly recommend anyone who loves yoga and Hawaii!!

Transformative Experience

I recently completed the 200 RYT training and the experience at Konalani exceeded my expectations. Not only did I develop a solid foundation of the yoga asanas, I also began a meditation practice that has transformed my life and my yoga practice. I feel very fortunate to have left Konalani with the tools needed to be a dynamic yoga instructor, but also with life skills that I continue to build upon in my day to day life back at home.

Ashram life at Konalani is a spirit-filled, life-enhancing experience. Because the training is done in a small group you have the opportunity to get to know your fellow teacher trainees and develop deep friendships that will last a lifetime. The shared meals (some of the best I've ever had), seva, meditation practice and training on the incredible yoga deck foster an invaluable sense of community and support.

The physical setting at Konalani is like no other. Can you imagine spending your days practicing yoga on a deck that overlooks the ocean and a magnificent Bodhi tree? The weather on the Big Island is perfect... always warm and often with a cool breeze. During those breaks in the training, the beach is easily accessible for a refreshing dip.

I cannot say enough about my experience at Shambhava Yoga Konalani. I highly recommend it to anyone seeking an immersion teacher training program that will provide a comprehensive educational experience along with the opportunity for personal growth in a beautiful, serene setting.

Beautiful Heart Opening Experience at Konalani Yoga

I recently completed my yoga teacher training at Shambhava Yoga Konalani in Hawaii. I feel so fortunate to have chosen this program to complete my training. I knew it would be a great experience. Now, after completing the program, it not only deepened my personal yoga practice, but truly did open my heart to new possibilities of trying to live my practice on and off the mat.

The peaceful and welcoming environment at Konalani help to foster deeper connections with the Inner Self and there is a nourishing quality that you get from the beautiful and peaceful property, complete with stunning views overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The staff at Konalani all have a deep intuition and are very mindful of their students and guests, always looking for ways to make things more comfortable whether with the rooms, food accommodations or relating to meditation practice.

They offer a comprehensive and in depth teacher training program that provides many hands on experiences to really engage in your training. After 3 weeks, I feel very capable and ready to begin teaching yoga. I look forward to taking the training I received at Konalani and gaining new experiences as a yoga teacher.

Prior to coming to Konalani, I knew I would have a great experience. All of the little details, like yoga classes on their lovely yoga deck (complete with a stunning view of a huge bodhi tree and the ocean), delicious meals full of flavour and love, to the laughter and rich concersations made this an exceptional experience. I made wonderful connections with my fellow yogis taking their training and I have gained two new mentors as I carry on with this path of yoga. Thank you Konalani for providing me with so many heart opening experiences and filling me with compassion, stillness, peace and gratitude!

Relaxed and informative - a place to deepen your practice

The yoga deck at Konalani is perhaps the most beautiful place I have ever seen to practice yoga. It looks out over the water and at times you can see whales breeching. In savasana, the smell of tropical flowers wafts over you and the singing birds lull you into relaxation.
The curriculum is well developed and taught by experienced senior teachers. The retreat format allows you to really immerse yourself into the experience and be a part of ashram life. The food is amazing and the accommodations are simple but comfortable. I highly recommend Konalani teacher training. It prepared me well for teaching and opened doors to develop a more advanced meditation and spiritual practice.

Spiritually based solid training

I am pleased to recommend Shambhava Yoga training to anyone who wants to connect their meditation practice to their yoga practice. The spiritual foundation for this training is highly specific, rooted in the traditions of Kashmir Shaivism, but their application is universal, as this tradition favors spiritual development while fully engaged in the world. The ashram provides a solid foundation in Hatha yoga, the basis for all other yoga styles, and the Hawaiian setting is pure delight - the climate makes the early rise and full schedule so much more pleasant!
