Who is Yoga Teacher Training For?
The approach of Hawaiian Healing Yoga is inclusive, despite any level of physical ability that you currently possess. You don't have to be the most flexible, or the super strong to begin the practice of Hatha Yoga. The goal of the training is to meet you where you are and hopefully inspire you to keep practicing and awakening on your journey. 180 hours are mandatory to fulfill the curriculum requirements of Yoga Alliance. If you know that you will be missing a day or two, it must be made up. Make up time is not a part of the curriculum tuition. The only requirements are an open mind and heart, a willingness to learn, and dedication to doing your best throughout the training.
Benefits of the 200- Hour Yoga Teacher Training
The benefits of Yoga Teacher Training far surpass the goal of becoming a yoga instructor. You will learn:
Yoga is a lifestyle. It is the systematic process of releasing that which is not of your true nature, so you can remember the fullness of who you really are. We are infinte, eternal, loving consciousness in form...awaken to the perfection of beingness!
This training has been one of the most enriching experiences of my life. When we began I had not practiced physically for quite some time, but I was drawn to the program because it had so much to offer on a spiritual and physical level. This is a life changing experience.

I feel the training has benefited me in more ways than I could ever express. I am amazed at how much was taught in the program from day 1. There is nothing I would add or delete. I would highly recommend HHY as a training because it is a safe beautiful space where a student can feel open, ease, relaxed and connected to their own self growth. The student will learn more than they ever thought. Their hearts and minds will expand and open to all the possibilities of future growth. They can unfold all their current earthly issues, and contemplate spirituality, energy and life force.

I have a much deeper understanding of yoga as a whole, beyond the physical practice. I feel humbled by the things I've learned and excited about continuing my yoga journey. I feel inspired to work on myself spiritually and be able to teach yoga as part of that work. I highly recommend Hawaiian Healing Yoga. I will never forget this experience and will carry the lessons learned for the rest of my life.
M. Schmidt Kona, HI.
The greatest benefit for me was learning so much more about yoga philosophy. I feel like YTT has made me a more compassionate person. What I liked most was the deep appreciation this training imparted for all aspects of yoga as equally as possible-meditation, philosophy, healthy lifestyle, asanas, chanting, teaching methodology, Hawaiian healing, and anatomy. I consider myself extremely lucky to have done my YTT here!
Alysa F. Holualoa, HI.

I've grown so much as a person, mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually. I feel it has given me such a great foundation for my life. Stacey & Dan are such wonderful people and are very personable, I always felt welcomed, loved & supported by them. Stacey has been an inspiration and mentor for me and I'm so thankful to have made this connection. I now see Yoga as a way of life and a way of being as opposed to just a physical practice. There is so much wisdom, knowledge, and tools shared in this program that can help anyone improve their lives and feel more grounded, peaceful, strong, flexible and resilient. So much Aloha and love!!!

S.J. Waikoloa, HI.
Attending this teacher training has been a life changing experience. I have deepened my knowledge of asana, pranayama, meditation, and yoga philosophy. Stacey and Dan are amazing teachers as well as some of the most kind open hearted humans I have met. They make their home feel like ours, they laughed and chatted like friends and held space and delivered the training like professionals. I leave this training with a profound sense of self and inspiration. My desire to share the knowledge I have gained comes straight from my heart with a deep gratitude for how I've been impacted.

Rebecca O. TN
If you are looking for a solid foundation to start your yoga training, Hawaiian Healing Yoga is great! The studio space is everything you could ask for in a yoga studio. The energy of this space feels very pure. I learned so many tools to take with me into everyday life. This training has deepened my understanding of Yoga more than I could have imagined.
Christopher, Kona, HI.
I will absolutely cherish the training I received from Hawaiian Healing Yoga. The decision to do my 200hr certification with Stacey provided me with a very well rounded knowledge base to build on. The way the classes progress built my confidence each week. Stacey has a gift of providing her students with the tools they will need to keep their future students safe while they explore their yoga paths. The studio space is amazing! The environment is welcoming and comfortable. A great place to both focus and relax. The birds are a wonderful addition, hearing them brings real connection to wild, fabulous nature! Mahalo
Kathy D. Waimea, HI.
I have loved the camaraderie, support, and learning opportunity that this training provided. Stacey and Dan create a nurturing environment where students can be inquisitvie, learn through exploring yoga personally, and introduced to a deep level of yoga philosophy. Exploring yoga this last year gave me a chance to learn more about yoga and myself than I would have been able to do in a two week boot camp. I appreciate the care and thoughtfulness put into Hawaiian Healing Yoga Teacher Training and am grateful I took the the leap to receive my training here.
Charity N. Hilo, HI.
My own experience has been life changing! I just completed 200 Hours of Teacher Training with Hawaiian Healing Yoga. I can say that my experience has been extraordinary, more than I ever dreamed. I feel confident that I can compose yoga sequences that flow gently. I am convinced that I can help make yoga accessible to those who are intimidated by strong yoga or who have obstacles to their mobility or how just want to be able to enjoy the fundamental possess that lead to health of mind and body. I trust in the benefits of yoga for those who choose to commit to the practice. Stacey is perfectly organized. It is obvious she has the scope of yoga in her mind so that she can present a well balanced combination of didactic and experiential classes that build our foundation. Reflection upon the Hawaiian cultural tradition of ALOHA make perfect sense for yoga as we open our hearts in Aloha and breathe the HA breath of life, we are the embodiment of yoga; body, mind, spirit in union. Honoring and respecting the ĀINA of these islands is one and the same as honoring and respecting our own bodies and those of our students. Honestly, I loved it all, I know there will be many students in the future who will also be filled with gratitude for this training.
Mana T. OR
So much thought and care was put into the program that I can't think of a thing that would have made it lovelier. On every level it was more than I expected and in the end it was way more rewarding that I imagined it would be. I feel totally supported and inspired by Stacey. For me it was a life changing experience and it gave me so much confidence. I feel prepared to begin teaching and sharing yoga right away! The training to teach has brought me back to a personal meditation practice and has helped me work through some spiritual barriers. The training helped me shift my focus from a job that had become unfulfilling to a view for following my dreams and sharing more about what is important in my heart and how I can serve others and support myself as well.
Rebecca H. Kona, HI.
I am so grateful that my search for a yoga teacher training program led me to Hawaiian Healing Yoga! I chose the ten month weekend training because it fit into my already full life. Stacey's instruction in proper alignment of the asanas and sequencing of classes left me feeling confident that I could safely and intelligently lead a hatha or vinyasa style of class immediately after graduating. She also provided a comprehensive study of yoga beyond just the physical practice. I learned so much about the history of yoga and yoga as a compass to navigate life. Stacey's training includes the mental, emotional, and spiritual aspects of yoga. She not only teaches yoga, she lives it! She is a warm and caring instructor and human being. Stacey and her husband, Dan, have created a space to carry on a sacred tradition. The yoga deck and surrounding environment are so peaceful and healing.
Cecilia W. Kona, HI.
Stacey is a gracious and caring spirit. She facilitates with a light heart and a wealth o f knowledge--holding space for learning and healing to take place in equal measure. The yoga studio is an oasis of peace! Come as you are; you will be welcomed with the warmest of Aloha.
C. Magdalena. Kona, HI.
I would highly recommend Hawaiian Healing Yoga. It gave me a broad foundation to draw upon as a teacher of yoga. The attention to detail was impressive. Hawaiian Healing Yoga expresses what yoga is all about and teaches all aspects of the practice to create a well rounded and mindful yoga instructor.
Lisa L. Waikoloa, HI.
I feel completely BLESSED to have found Hawaiian Healing Yoga. Yoga is more than asana and Stacey has given me a wonderful foundation of living a lifestyle of yoga as well as provide me with the tools to share with others. With the information provided and the way it is presented this teacher training felt more like a spiritual training for me. I find having a spiritual foundation to be an important for any future instructor. After the training I feel confident in my abilities as a teacher but I also feel motivated to discover more and to help others through the practice of yoga. The smaller group setting gave us the opportunities to practice teach on a regular basis. Although teaches intimidating at first, over time we became family and were able to teach, make mistakes, let things go and give wonderful practices to our fellow trainees. The setup of the training gives me confidence, not only as an instructor, but as a human being. I am so proud that I found family in the islands of Hawaii through Stacey and Dan!
Autumn L. Oahu, HI.
Wonderful! Stacey's enthusiasm and knowledge both combine to make this a fun, informative, challenging and nurturing Yoga Teacher Training experience. Beautiful space to practice, would highly recommend to anyone who wants to teach or just wants to deepen their yoga practice.
Annie S. Kona, HI.
Having such a beautiful open space to learn in made this training such a pleasurable experience. Stacey is such an inspiration, full of kindness. This training has inspired me to go through life in a more mindful way, and to share it with the spirit of Aloha. I am more aware of my mind/body connection.
Isabelle C. Kona, HI.
During this training you will change in so many good ways. You will begin to listen to your truth and you will have the support and encouragement to pursue your own truth.
Maite R. Kona, HI
I feel like I have benefited from this yoga foundation in so many ways. From a physical aspect I feel stronger and more confident in how my body moves. I feel as though I can let things go easier and I now have more awareness of staying in the present moment. It has inspired me to find more love for myself, and to let that love radiate out to others. It inspires me to want to help others who are interested in starting a yoga practice. I enjoyed every part of the program. I received much more information that I though I was going to get and loved learning it all! Practice teaching from day one was a great way to dive right in. I really enjoyed that each day had a different meditative focus. I don't know that I would change anything about the program. The space is awesome. I loved practicing outside, it made this experience so calming and peaceful.
Nicole L. CA
I feel my yoga foundation has increased though the knowledge of pranayama, mantra, yoga philosophy, and asana. I have gained strength through the training, which has improved my back. The benefits I have gained through this 200-hour journey had inspired me to share the benefits of yoga with others. It also has inspired me to want to continue along my own journey. I enjoyed the group! I will miss learning and expanding my yoga practice with you all, but I look forward to what's next. The studio is so peaceful. I looked forward to the training almost everyday, and the space was a big part of that.
Maka W. Waimea, HI.
This 200hour Yoga Training Certification has FOREVER changed my life for the better and I am truly grateful that I chose to be a part of this. I would recommend Hawaiian Healing Yoga to everyone interested in yoga. The foundation is absolutely necessary. Stacey teaches the mechanics & alignment well, and over & over so she knows you understand their importance. She brings awareness to different body types and shares how and why the bodies will move the way they do. I loved learning the 8 limbs of yoga, and so many other areas of the practice that before I didn't know. The food, the environment, instructors...awesome!
Echo M, UT.
Stacey has developed an impressive, thorough, grounding, and enlightening YTT program. From her, you will learn how to cue, sequence, and to build a knowledge base of asanas, with the Sanskrit pronunciation. You will develop your skills with pranayamas, meditations, and chakra energy anatomy. The unlimited benefit gained from deepening your knowledge will broaden you perspective of yoga, from the history, yoga sutras, to the many styles present in the world today. Stacey's grounding, amazing organization, kindness and sincerity make it a real privilege to learn from her. Her delicious lunches helped fuel us well!
