Each time I am on Maui I make sure I go to one of these classes on the grass next to ocean waves in Kihei. Palms sway overhead.It's an absolute delight! About 30 people attended each class last week. The teacher, Joanna, is a great guide and encourages everyone to listen to their own body. A very well-run class. Looking... More

To a person the response was, "wonderful, one of the best massages I have ever had". Johanna is completely professional, comes with all the excellent equipment needed... More

Johanna is an amazing yogi. Her classes are thoughtful and purposeful as she gently guides the practice. She has extensive knowledge which enables her to provide effective instruction for all levels. It would be helpful to have had a few basic yoga sessions previously, but if not, no worries. Advise utilizing the bug spray which is graciously provided

This is my third time at Maui Yoga and I will always look for where Johanna is teaching when on the Island. She is very well trained and can easily manage a multi level class. She encourages you to find your edge and adjusts as needed. Beautiful setting . Curious yogis should also ask Johanna about her work outside of... More

My wife and I discovered Johanna's yoga class at the front of Kamaole Nalu Resort. It has a fantastic view of the ocean. Johanna is a great instructor. She provides clear instructions. The class is considered moderate but following her advice, you can make it as easy or as difficult as you wish. It is a very balanced class combining... More

After practicing yoga for over 20 years, Johanna's class located on the waterfront of our Maui condo is one of the most beautiful places I've experienced. Johanna's graceful teaching combine with the magic of Maui's energy makes this meaningful yoga practice one that I highly recommend! Namaste

I have been on a regular schedule of massage with Johanna for 6 + yrs. She is always very intuitive and caring, often finding areas that are of particular trouble when I have not even mentioned. That always makes me smile. She teaches me lots of stretches for my index of maladjustments that help keep me upright and in motion.... More

My wife persuaded me to give it a go.........and I'm so glad we did. Fantastic experience lead by Johanna and I think because of her, we may take this up when we return home. Great location, really relaxed and welcoming......set us at ease straight away. We even travelled from Kahana to attend a second session with her! Thank you.....

Don't hesitate, just go! Once you experience yoga in this amazing setting you will be back again and again. Put your mat on the grass, gaze at the horizon, listen to the crash of the waves, try not to get distracted by the whales, get your zen on!
