Bhavani Maki is an international Yoga teacher, musician, and author of
'The Yogīs Roadmap: The Patañjali Yoga Sūtra as a Journey to Self Realization'
Yoga is a journey of compressed evolution towards breakthrough experiences. Bhavani believes that engaging in the full science and art of Yoga uplifts us, deepens connection with authentic self and to the source of joy within.
She offers unique insights to open new pathways to greater freedom and specializes in addressing your specific needs to facilitate the development of a personal practice that is appropriate to your challenges, physical injuries and
desire for personal growth and transformation.
Introduced to Yoga at age 9, Bhāvani began her exploration of Patanjali’s Ashtanga Yoga in 1987 and at the bequest of her teacher, started sharing Yoga in 1995. She founded Kauai's first Yoga shala, Yoga Hanalei, in 1999. She began to offer teacher trainings in 2003 and is dedicated to mentoring students in their personal adventure of Yoga as embodiment of somatic, emotional and psychological integration in heart-centered consciousness. Bhāvani shares Yoga in the indigenous tradition of heart-to-heart transmission to affirm that rather than becoming, Yoga is to reclaim your unique wholeness and to
offer yourself to life's beauty-making as something never before seen.
