group at hoomaluhiaNext Oahu immersion/teacher training begins May 2018!

If you live on the Big Island and are interested in a year-long program, please email me!  shivatreeyoga@gmail.com





This training is composed of a variety of monthly workshops and group meetings:

  • Align & Refine Workshops: Develop your own asana practice along with functional and energetic alignment, variations and use of props, anatomy and the mind-body connection.  This direct experience is invaluable and if you decide to teach yoga, will provide a solid foundation from which to share!


  • Flow Immersion Classes: These classes will emphasize an intelligent alignment-based flow practice based upon the eight limbs of yoga, and embodiment of intention and meditation in motion, anatomy, kramas, and breath-oriented transitions.


  • Stress Management & Practical Ayurveda: Ayurveda translates to the “science of life”, and is a 5000+ year old science used to understand how your dosha, or inherent constitution, is affected by the fluctuations of your environment, diet, sensory impressions, level of stress, and relationships.  Cultivate a high quality of awareness and incorporate simple self-care practices into your everyday routine to expand the awareness, energy and contentment that you develop on your yoga mat to all facets of your life!


  • Philosophy 101: Interested in learning the WHY’s and WHAT’s of the greater yoga tradition?  Ready to practice more than asana?  These workshops are for you!  Develop a greater understanding of the origins and the many modern branches of yoga, discuss the eight limbs of yoga and the yoga sutras and figure out how these apply to our daily lives.


  • Teaching Methodology Clinics: A variety of topics such as class preparation, injury prevention, sequencing, adjustments and business considerations of yoga will be covered.   Great for aspiring teachers or as a way for current teachers to refresh your classes or complete continuing education credits.  These hours will be mandatory for completion of Shivatree Yoga School’s  200-hour teacher training.


  • “Sangha” Gatherings: These are group meetings with other training participants oriented towards discussion and Q & A about teaching methodology, readings, assignments, and application of these concepts in daily life.  These are also a great way to establish community and lasting friendships!


  • Specialty Classes & Workshops with Shivatree Approved Teachers: If a workshop is scheduled with one of these teachers during the hours listed above, the workshop price is covered in your program tuition.  If you choose to attend workshops facilitated by these teachers on your own time, these hours will count towards your Yoga Alliance certification but you will need to pay the teacher directly.  Earn up to 30 hours with approved teachers.
    • Bryan Jordan, LMT, Pilates Instructor, Level 2 Reiki, Life Coach and RYT-200: specializing in physical and energetic body work, music and meditation. Bryan often leads workshops, restorative yoga and singing bowls classes, and meditational singing bowl classes.  I recommend attending one of Bryan’s monthly singing bowls classes (not included) which would give you an additional 15 hours).
    • Rupali Embry, 500-ERYT & FDN: 30 years’ experience teaching yoga and leading international teacher trainings; Founder of Blissful Yogini and Yoga Hawaii. Rupali occasionally hosts workshops in Honolulu.
    • More teachers to be announced soon!


  • Mentorship: These hours are flexible and may be tailored to your interests!  This is where you will make up any missed hours.
