International Yoga Teacher, Musician, and Author of 'The Yogī's Roadmap: The Patañjali Yoga Sūtra as a Journey to Self Realization"
Aloha! I believe that engaging in the full science and art of Yoga uplifts us, deepens connection with our authentic selfs, and brings us to the source of joy within. I was introduced to Yoga in 1977, started teaching in 1994, and blessed to have been mentored by classical Indian Yoga masters over the course of decades in the science and art of Yoga. In 1999, I founded and directed Kauai's first Yoga shala, Yoga Hanalei for 20 years.
My experience allows me to offer unique insights (online Yoga Sūtra mentorship programs, alignment based Yoga classes, workshops, intensives, and teacher trainings) to open new pathways to greater freedom. A functional Yoga practice needs to be personally customized. Together we will dial in a practice that supports and addresses your specific needs and facilitate the development of a personal practice that is appropriate to your challenges, physical injuries and desire for personal growth and transformation.

"Yoga on the inside is self-care, Yoga on the outside is caring for others."
- Bhāvani Maki
My name is Bhavani and I have been exploring the ancient tradition of Patañjali’s Ashtanga Yoga since I was just nine years old. It is an honor to share this beautiful tradition with others, and I have been doing so since 1995 when my teacher urged me to start teaching.
In 1999, I founded Kauai's first Yoga school, Yoga Hanalei, and since then, I have been offering various programs to share my passion for Yoga with people around the world. I started offering teacher trainings in 2003, and I am dedicated to mentoring students in their personal journey of Yoga.
I believe in the integration of somatic, emotional, and psychological aspects of ourselves, and my teachings are rooted in heart-centered consciousness. I share Yoga in the indigenous tradition of heart-to-heart transmission, to empower fellow seekers to reclaim their unique wholeness and gifts.
