Our Unique Approach

Copy of Product Mock Ups  Katie & Foyd-5.png

Experience different approaches and techniques with an

unifying foundational understanding.

Your mentor's asana practices comes from different lineages and their synergy offers much more than Asana labs. 

Students will be exposed to very distinct voices inherited from different traditions and schools with an extensive common ground we call Yoga.​

As the students start to indulge and digest the curriculum, the exposure to these different approaches enrich not just their vocabulary as teachers but also promotes freedom. Every student has a different voice, expression and style. Our goal is to lift their uniqueness and enhance their autonomy and sovereignty.

This path needs to be a unique journey for everyone!

The Format

The Format of this course is focused in two categories: 

  • Accessibility:

 This certification course is accessible to everyone including: parents, working people, people traveling from the mainland or other countries and anyone in between.

This certification course is for to everyone who has the thirst for learning and also may

have a full life of commitments!

  • Integration:

We know how important it is for content to be delivered clearly and also how equally important it is for students to have time to assimilate and integrate what they are being exposed to.


We welcome you into our spacious hybrid Training where you will have the opportunity to relax, observe, study and review all the embodiment practices (Asanas, Pranayamans, Lab and anatomy) hands-on in 3 weeks of in-person Immersion which will account for half of your training (100 hours).

And then, we will move into the virtual world for the other half of the curriculum which is spaced with classes a week apart for assimilation and integration of the content in real life (100 hours).

Our Team

Tropical Beach

Where we are:

We are located on the East side of The Big Island of Hawaii.

Lanai Yoga is our primary home studio in Keaau, Hawaiian Paradise Park.

Classes, lectures, practices will take place mainly at Lanai Yoga and

occasionally we will visit another studio in Pahoa and possibly near by beaches:  

The magestic Black Sand Beach Kehena and Carl Smith in Hilo.


We are happy to partner up with a couple of Eco Village communities and have created affordable agreements with them that would financially support anyone coming from the Mainland and/or need a lodging place to stay.

These Eco villages are an affordable option other than Airbnb which are commonly open to receive guests through out the island. Both are about 25 minutes from our studio and both offer amazing amenities.  ( These are base on the 3 week immersion but possibly longer if needed)
