Kauai North Shore Yoga Studios and Retreat Properties

Kauai’s reputation as a place for healing attracts numerous people who come for nurturing, whether physically, mentally, or spiritually. This is especially true on the North Shore, where one can find virtually every type of treatment possible.  

Yes, my 4 year-old Lea enjoys being pampered

From traditional Chinese acupuncture to luxury five-star spas, you name it and it’s probably here. In fact, my brothers have an ongoing joke that everyone you meet here is either a massage therapist, a yoga teacher, or a Realtor. (And if I ever got licensed for massage, then I would be all 3!) And I would never hear the end of it from the brothers…ah! Sibling love…

2 Best Kauai North Shore Yoga Studios

For yoga lovers like myself, there are tons of options…but for time and space purposes, I will share with you my 2 favorite north shore studios. I have had the pleasure of teaching at both studios, and I love sharing all I have been taught by these two beautiful yoginis. Whether a total beginner or a seasoned practitioner, young, old, healthy, or injured, come breathe, stretch, and relax!

Yoga Hanalei

In Hanalei, my favorite studio is Yoga Hanalei, which has a full schedule of classes for all levels. Director Bhavani Maki has been a long time teacher of mine, and her training has taught me to love the practice and the journey.

Her roots are deep in Ashtanga, although her classes deviate from the traditional series into her own intense, alignment-rich style, throughout which she offers her profound insights on life with an educated sense of humor. Her understanding of the body amazes me, not to mention the transforming adjustments. She also offers intensive teacher trainings, and I have done both Level 1 and 2. Highly recommended!

Metamorphose Yoga

In Kilauea, my favorite place is a new studio called Metamorphose Yoga, also offering a variety of classes. My friend, Carol Drumeyer, who taught at the Common Ground for a long time, has created a beautiful Bali-inspired space in the historic stone building near the Healthy Hut. Her classes are a gentle flow style full of laughter (or tears) and draws students of all ages. As a bodyworker, Carol also has an amazing touch and her adjustments are truly revealing. 

Both Bhavani and Carol are very near and dear to me, and a class in either studio is a memorable experience. And if you do not want a strong class, they both offer evening restorative classes suitable for all ages and fitness levels.

Thank you for sharing these yoga vacation opportunities on Kauai’s North Shore. I grew up on Oahu and spent my Summers in Haena near the Limahuli stream. It is great to know that I can bring my family back to Kauai and have so many good yoga choices !!

Hi Cate,
Can you tell me if Metamorphose is still one of your fave places to do yoga? I am considering doing a solo trip to the area from Canada and staying nearby and using their studio as a base for my own personal yoga retreat! I would be coming for a relaxing rejuvenating trip and they seem to provide a lot of gentle yoga which is what I love. also I thought you might be a good resource for Accommodation for a woman travelling solo. If you can help please email me and maybe we could arrange to chat by phone.
