Editor’s note: This is the second entry in a series exploring Hawaii’s yoga studios. Read the first one here.
“The deeper you get into Yoga you realize it is a spiritual practice. It’s a journey I’m making. I’m heading that way.” – Sting
This is a sentiment the good folks behind Yoga Hanalei can get behind. The Kauai studio’s instructors create the kind of welcoming environment that draws you in, allowing you to focus, to center, to breathe.
The space itself exudes tranquility. Yoga Hanalei is centered on an open concept that is not only aesthetically pleasing, but also versatile. Yoga rope wall? Check. Banners of angled sunshine? Check. Mirrored wall? Check.
Whether you’re a newbie or a veteran practitioner, you’re bound to feel comfortable. After all, you’re in good hands with Yoga Hanalei founder and director Bhavani Silvia Maki, whose extensive training is rare indeed. (She’s made six trips to study in South India, and has even written a book titled The Yogi’s Road Map.)
With more than 30 classes offered every week catering to all levels of experience and a range of different styles, Yoga Hanalei provides a great atmosphere to go as far as Sting suggests you should in your spiritual journey.
We had a wonderful time at Sail Away and I recommended Hawaii Hideaway to dozens of people. You were a delight to work with and I will definitely use you again the next time we rent a home in the islands.
Like a Dream
Bliss doesn’t even describe our experience. It was almost like a dream. We are ready to do this again with Hawaii Hideaways – you guys are the best. Everything was perfect!!!
Outstanding Experience From Beginning to End
It was in an outstanding experience from beginning to end, I would work with Hawaii hideaways again in the future unquestionably. Sunny Madeiros was terrific with her recommendations of everything from leisure activities to restaurants and even equipment rentals.

Perfect Combination of Elegance and Comfort
First time to Maui (and Hawaii). This is a spectacular setting and the home is a perfect combination of elegance and comfort. I could stay on the lanai all day long and be happy. Of course there’s a ton of fun activities, but it was great to have Gull Cottage as our base to come back to!

You’re Going to Want to Stay
Our family spent a splendid week in Kauai in early 2017, basing ourselves out of the Touching Green house. It’s in a great location, has everything you need, and is just lovely. The pictures don’t do it justice. You’re going to want to stay!
We had a wonderful time in Kauai! We remained in awe at the unimaginable beauty, both of the rental home, as well as Kauai itself. It will be a treasured memory for life. I hope we can come back and make more memories.
