200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training Hawaii

Maui, Hawaii 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training

Join Maureen Gildersleeve founder of Mangala Yoga Studios, and her staff in, Maui, Hawaii for a Yoga Alliance approved, 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training Program. In this life-changing journey of transformation, you will reveal your true potential through the study and application of yoga philosophy. Dive deep into the art of effective yoga instruction and leave with the confidence, skills and knowledge you need to embark on your yoga teaching career.

During our time together we will develop a consistent practice and integrate yoga into our everyday lives. You will learn the secrets behind the unique and dynamic Vinyasa Flow yoga sequencing that has made Mangala Yoga the fastest growing yoga studio on Maui.

Walk away from your training with 3 full yoga sequences and have ample opportunity to fine-tune your communication skills and strengthen your voice. You will leave this program with everything you need to begin teaching well-balanced yoga classes.

Within our 6-week adventure, there will be a retreat for 5 days and 4 nights at a private sanctuary on Maui. All accommodations are included in the tuition for the retreat portion of the training. Our retreat is a wonderful way for us to further develop our sense of community, immerse ourselves in our Yoga studies and begin to live the Yogi lifestyle. All of our work will be further supported by the magical, natural paradise that Maui offers.
