All classes at Maui Hot Yoga are done in a heated environment.
Since all of our classes are all level, whatever class you choose from at
Maui Hot Yoga will be a great class to begin your journey with us.
Our studio is known for its upbeat classes to grooving music with lots of creative flows incorporating postures from all of the Ashtanga yoga sequences, as well as more modern flows with influence from Ashtanga, power yoga, kundalini, Dharma, vinyasa & Bikram Yoga.
We believe Hot Yoga is a medical therapeutic form of healing that incorporates the healing effects of Heat Shock Therapy. Through heating up the body, both internally with the breathing & the movements, as well as externally with heaters in our studio, your body goes into thermoregulation. Thermoregulation is when the body starts to sweat, the heart rate is increased, and a shift happens in the nervous system. Heat on the body produces stress. This heat stress creates a tremendous healing within the body. Through this stressful environment, one learns to stay calm & collected, to control one’s breath as well as ones mind which produces lasting results felt by all practitioners.
Our Hot Yoga & Hot Vinyasa are both a series of postures scientifically designed to give a comprehensive healing effect to the entire body. During each class, muscles, ligaments and tendons are warmed and stretched in a specific sequence that enhances healing on the mind, body as well as spirit. New practitioners are often surprised at how fast their core strength is built and the amazing vibrant health that is rapidly achieved through a regular practice.
With influences from Bikram yoga, Ashtanga Yoga, Baptiste Power Yoga & Vinyasa, as well as Pilates & Buti Yoga, our diverse team of instructors bring their own experience and background to each class.
Hot Yoga is more geared for beginners, and Hot Vimyasa has more weight on the hands, so it requires some more deeper levels of flexibility.
Thai Yoga & Thai Yoga Massage–
Thai yoga is a type of yoga where someone stretches you into the yoga positions. It can be related to a massage, although the clothing is on, no oils are used, and skin contact is not required. The practitioner utilizes hands, feet, elbows, forearms and various tools to create deep levels of stretching and working along meridian lines. The system is closely related to acupuncture in how you work with the energy systems in the body. For instance, you can massage points in one’s feet to access the stomach.
Mary Grace & James Onnikian both traveled to Thailand and became certified in Thai Massage at Wat Po, the Worlds Oldest Thai Massage school.
Acro & partner yoga–
Acro yoga and partner yoga are types of yoga in which you use a partner for the strengthening, stretching, and balancing. Maui Hot Yoga offers classes & workshops in these forms of partner yoga.
