Truly Helpful welcomes you to join them for their 10th time offering the 200-hour yoga teacher training on Maui. Whether you want to start teaching classes in a studio or deepen your knowledge and enhance your personal asana practice, you have come to the right place. Allowah and Mark, your hosts, will combine their experience to share their knowledge and love for the land with you. During this training, you will receive a deeper immersion and well-rounded education in yoga, giving you solid roots and wings with which to fly. By the end of the training, you will also be certified at the 200-hour level and eligible to register with Yoga Alliance as an RYT-200. If you are ready to take your yoga practice and your life to that next level than this is the training for you!
This retreat is being held at the Spirit of Aloha Temple on Maui. Listen to the singing birds, rejuvenate at the ocean front gardens, enjoy waterfalls, meditation, get grounding, walk around the Grandmother Tree to hear from the Aina, and truly breath in the Spirit of Aloha.
Lodging will be in camping tents, which might sound intense, but it's actually very doable. And it's part of the yogic ethos of non-attachment, simplification, and living close to nature. There are options to have your own private tent, share with a friend, or we will assign two-persons to a tent. There will be two indoor bathrooms and two outdoor showers with hot water and beautiful views.
Students who complete their subsequent trainings are eligible to register with Yoga Alliance as Registered Yoga Teachers (RYT®).
The primary topics covered are yoga philosophy and history, Sanskrit, teaching methodology, techniques, anatomy and physiology, yoga ethics and way of life, the business of yoga, and practicum (teaching).
The course manual is included, required and recommended books must be purchased separately in advance, as will other yoga accessories such as mat, yoga clothes, and etc.
A lot of emphases will be placed on following your heart and finding your own unique voice and way of expression, even if you choose not to teach yoga. The skills, practices, and lessons learned from this training will well-serve you the rest of your life.
Truly Helpful also wants to emphasize that they do not promote any worldview or religious dogma (including dietary), but rather bring forward different viewpoints so that they might "consider the possibilities."
They view yoga not as a religion but as a tool that can actually help you to practice your own faith and live your life more fruitfully. There are many paths of yoga ("paths are many, the truth is one"), and there are many styles; they want to help you find the ones that fit you best.
That said, the style that is mainly taught is a form of Hatha Vinyasa yoga (aka "Vinyasa flow") that lends itself well to the creativity and intuition of the teacher and can be modified to fit different age groups, fitness levels, etc.
We plan to visit the beaches often, go snorkeling, partake in ecstatic dance, see the epic sunrise of Haleakala, take the road to Hana and more!

Three delicious gluten-free vegan meals will be provided each day and will be prepared with local organic ingredients - Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner. Other food may be purchased in town (20 minutes away by car). Truly Helpful's commitment to you is that the chefs will use 100% locally sourced fruits and vegetables that are either organic or are sustainably farmed in a manner that surpasses organic certification requirements. They will use as many Maui/Hawaiian products as they are able to such as fresh coconut water, macadamia nuts, avocados, pineapples, leafy greens, ginger, turmeric and more!
Please take notice exceptions include: grains (like rice and quinoa), tea, chocolate, superfood ingredients for our smoothies (chia, flax, vegan protein blends etc.)
For those of you who will be new to the vegan lifestyle, Truly Helpful is here to help you during your transition. The goal is to make food so fresh and delicious that you won’t even care (and often times won’t even notice) that there aren’t any animal products in it. The Truly Helpful team is co-creating a cook book just for these Maui, 2019, trainings featuring such delectable delights like raw chocolate avocado pie with a macadamia nut crust, jackfruit street tacos, fresh squeezed juices and smoothies, and vegan/gluten free banana bread! Just to name a few.
Beaches are only 20 minutes away in Paia. The venue itself is absolutely beautiful and features botanical gardens, nearby hikes, and will be visiting the beaches on a regular basis too.
