We represent a diverse range of teaching styles. We believe yoga is for every body. If you can breathe, you can do yoga. We welcome you to modify poses as needed. After all, it's your practice.
Yoga at Kalani is taught by visiting and resident faculty. Join one of the classes on our weekly schedule, or register for one of the many yoga retreats we host each year. We offer both group and private instruction. All are welcome to practice with us. Yoga mats and basic props are available for use. Breezes, bird songs, crashing waves, and the occasional rainstorm set the scene for your reconnection with self and nature.
Hawaii is well-known for attracting yoga teachers, body and energy workers. Our resident yoga faculty offer an impressive array of styles, approaches, and yogic philosophies. We are a collective of yoga teachers, facilitated by Kimberly Dark. The beauty of our diversity is that each teacher represents a lineage with its own internal logic and traditions.
We embrace the aims of the Yoga and Body Image Coalition. We strive for an environment that welcomes everyone and provides an easy entry point for your yoga practice. We believe in the transformative power of yoga for a more peaceful world, both individually and collectively. We believe that yoga can be accessible to all cultures, sizes, ages, genders and abilities. Every body is worthy of love. We believe that body-positivity is more than a hashtag, marketing slogan, or commodity—it's conscious action and lived practice.
YOGIS SOUND OFF
The perfect place for a yoga teacher training.
A great place. I will return for another Yoga Retreat!
This is Yoga heaven. There are yoga classes for everyone, whether you are a beginner, like me, or at an advanced level.
Our coding system helps you choose a yoga class to suit your preference of class focus, level of challenge and movement desired. Yoga classes on our weekly schedule, published each Sunday, are coded per these categories.
In cool classes (like Yin and Restorative), expect to focus on stretching and centering yourself. Much of the practice is done on the floor. Most participants maintain a resting heart rate in a "cool" class, and some may feel challenged by meditation or breathing practices. Cool classes may include active postures, though that isn't the primary focus.
In warm classes (like Basic Hatha or Intuitive Yoga) expect to focus on strength, balance, and flexibility through a combination of stretching, standing poses, and relaxation techniques. Some may feel challenged by holding poses and striving for alignment. In "warm" classes, some participants may find their physical abilities challenged. Others may simply feel stretched and refreshed.
In hot classes (like Vinyasa or Kundalini Yoga), you can expect a focus on movement and dynamic transitions, in addition to strength, balance and flexibility. Depending on an individual's physical ability, these classes may or may not significantly raise the heart rate; some will find them quite vigorous.
