I am here on Oahu with friends and teaching assistants Sarah-sassin and Tish Brook. I was invited to teach at the festival and was not sure what to expect or how my teaching style would be received. So far we’ve offered a guided meditation class overlooking the ocean, a beach class where we did handstand against palm trees, and a tantric bliss flow with DJ Drez that shook the house with the vibration of shimmering joy and deep house arousal. The classes have been full, well-received and we have many new Wisdom Flow Yoga global family members. We even have a few invitations to future festivals. It has been a thrill to practice next to Michael Franti and his lovely lady, to listen to Rochelle Ballard (of Blue Crush fame) talk about her pro surfing career, and to hoop dance with Shakti Sunfire. This is an amazing event creating space for joy, connection and creative expression – its the yoga circus with music festival added! Tonight we rock out with Michael Franti and friends and tomorrow Kaki King and ALO. Check out these video of ALO – you can expect their music on the playlists in our Maui classes.
Looking forward to reconnecting with all of you when I return to our beloved island… Mother Maui.
Wisdom Flow Yoga offers one of the most comprehensive and fun teacher trainings on the planet. We begin with a clear vision of the underlying philosophy – that every living being arises from and is rooted in divine energy, that we come to earth to joyfully expand and refine the expressions of Source Energy (aka Love), and by deepening our knowledge of body and mind we can focus our energy towards this fruitful joyful expansion. From this core philosophy we unfold the methodology of asana, pranayama, meditation, and more. Each day includes time for every student to take the “seat of the teacher” and practice using the voice of loving leadership. With this daily practice of voicing the material covered, teaching skills develop quickly. Our playful methods for remembering material help too. We sing and dance and use word association to quickly assimilate material in an atmosphere of relaxed playfulness.
Our teacher trainings are limited to 15 students and are led by three teachers so each person gets plenty of personal attention. This condensed intensive training is an immersion experience that roots the knowledge and skill deeply in each student. We meet ten hours each day and reading is required each night. Training fees are $2500. Accommodations are handled separately. We can help make arrangements for students coming from off-island. To read more about the June Wisdom Flow Yoga 200 hr. Yoga Alliance certified program, click here. You are welcome to send an inquiry email to Jennifer@wisdomflowyoga.com. We look forward to exploring and expanding with you!
Playfully explore methods for moving your body back into its natural alignment to alleviate nerve impingement, disc compression, and other symptoms of “practiced misalignment”. No need for yoga props or fancy movement. With a simple beach towel and household furniture you can create a 20-minute chill-out routine that – if practiced daily – will ease if not eliminate your pain. Your body’s design is brilliant. But even a porsche can be poorly driven! It is our unconscious habits that push our bodies out of alignment and into pain. Learn to tune yours up, every night so you can cruise and enjoy a pain-free life.
Saturday November 3rd. 11 AM to 1 PM. Everyone is welcome! Kama’aina $35 – Visitors $45. No need to pre-register. We have plenty of room.
Hotel Wailea is located at 555 Kaukahi Street, Waile, HI 96753 – near Capische!
See you there!
Tuesday October 16th , 8AM – Noon Join us for the second day of teacher training modules open to the public. Start your morning with a hour of breath centered practice, then relax and explore your own Pranayama as we discuss the anatomy of the breath.
In this module we explore the concept of inner and outer winds; how the breath is the bff of our prana (life force energy) and how moving the breath more freely through us means reclaiming our power as conscious creators of our own life experience. We learn sun/moon breath, fire breath, skull shining, and a cooling breath. We explore more deeply the anatomy of deep breathing and the way it creates a natural wave through the spine, cycling our cerebra-spinal fluid keeping our minds sharp and our senses alive. We take an initial look at bandhas (focal points of energy) and how they relate to the spanda – pulse of energy – through our bodies and the asanas.

Doesn’t it feel great when you get the deeper meaning behind things? It feels powerful when we understand the bigger picture, the higher purpose behind our actions. Our yoga asana is more healing when we feel the philosophy behind the methodology. Join us on October 15th from 8 AM to Noon as we explore applied philosophy – meaning in motion – in the first of a series of yoga immersion workshops. In this back-street, down-home, easy-to-digest workshop Jennifer Lynn takes us through mental imagery and movement that gels the joy-based tantric philosophy deep into the movement of the asana. More than ever before you will feel your practice as a moving prayer, a celebration of life and an exploration of your power to create greater beauty, joy and connection in the world. This workshop is open to everyone. It begins with an hour of asana followed by interactive lecture and discussion. Breathing and meditation and more movement and closing with a Q & A session, cookies and Chai. To register, email Jennifer. Workshop takes place in Sprecklesville (Paia). $60.
