About this trip

We are so pleased and grateful to announce that our next Yoga Teacher Training will take place on the Big Island of Hawaii this June 13-July 4th. Symbolically, we will be nestled in the Land of Aloha, learning ancient ways of healing and spiritual connection that will, after a full 21 days, bring us to Independence (July 4), or at least the growing realization that all of the answers and power are within ourselves. We will do that by getting much more in touch with the power of our minds through daily meditation, mindfulness techniques, asanas, pranayama, journaling, silence, and more. Perhaps even more helpful will be the reflections that we receive from each other, and the tribe-building communal living which is often both a challenge and great opportunity for growth.


We are very excited about the beautiful space lined up for this retreat, the Mauna Lea Manor Tiny House Village, as well as the awesome group of facilitators and participants that are already on board. Join us on this amazing journey into greater joy, peace and the life that we are all truly here to live.

This 200-hr program is registered with Yoga Alliance, though what we offer goes beyond the basics. Students are required to follow our guidelines and standards from the outset once registered. A fully committed group allows us to better serve the greater good of all concerned. This is not to say that there will not be fun and games! It’s just to say that we will find just the right mix the work and play that at the end of the day everyone is left feeling fulfilled with the whole experience—empowered to bring yoga to their respective communities and the world.

Please inquire if you are interested in work-trade opportunities, especially if you have photography, videography, catering or childcare experience. Maybe you have a partner that wants to join for a discounted rate? We want to work with you to make this the best experience for our whole tribe. 

Save $300 if you pay in full by May 21st :)


So looking forward to a fun and deep experience!

Aloha & Mahalo Nui Loa,

~ Allowah & The Yoga Quest University Team
