International Yoga teacher and author, Bhavani Maki, attended her first Yoga class at the age of nine, and began her exploration of Patañjali’s Aṣtānga Yoga in 1987. She founded Aṣtānga Yoga Kaua’i and began teaching in 1995, Yoga Hanalei in 1999, and training Yoga teachers in 2003. Bhavani has made seven trips to India to study with Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, as well as having the rare opportunity of hosting him twice on her home island of Kaua’i. She received her teacher training and authorization from Aṣtānga Yoga Masters Sri K. Pattabhi Jois of Mysore, South India, and Baba Hari Dass of Hardwar, North India. She studied Saṃṣkrta in Mysore, South India with Professor Narayanachaya, and regards Rama Jyoti Vernon as integral in her understanding of the Patañjali Yoga Sūtra, and the weaving of metaphysical teachings with the practices of Yoga, that she continues to share with her students to this day.

Née Silvia Kazazis, Bhāvani was raised quadrilingual in the milieu of the University of Chicago,  from a multicultural European background, and has traveled extensively from a young age. Bhavani interweaves the insights she has gathered into a holistic exploration of the microcosmic and macrocosmic self. Dedicated to exploring Yoga in its complete expression, her teachings are steeped in the traditions of Patañjali’s classical eight-limbed Yoga, with an emphasis on integrity of alignment and the use of Yoga as therapy.

Often described as a teacher’s teacher, Bhavani offers unique insights into discovering greater joy and freedom. She specializes in addressing the individual’s specific needs to develop a practice appropriate to their challenges, physical injuries, and desire for personal growth and transformation. Bhavani believes that that engaging in all the aspects of Yoga is a means of compressed evolution. that uplifts, connects, and accesses the inner source of joy.

Since 1993, Bhavani has resided on the island of Kaua’i with her husband Ray and son Nikola, on their organic permaculture farm. She offers Yoga classes, intensives, and annual teacher training programs at her studio, Yoga Hanalei, as well as Yoga workshops on the US mainland and Europe.

Sutra Class 1 (Thursday evening 2 hours)
Patanjali uses the term Kriya Yoga as the active purification of the physical, mental and emotional bodies. The first aspect he mentions is Tapas, the value of challenging our self to keep us vital and dynamic. We will explore Tapas in reference to the Sutra on practice of asana and pranayama .

Asana Class 1 (Friday morning 2.5 hours)
The Yoga asana can be applied systematically as an act of purification, known as Kriya. This subtle yet profound shift penetrates the physical and subtle bodies in a way that moves energy to uplift and invigorate all of our systems. Standing, balancing and twisting asana will provide the context to explore freedom within the content of our being.

Sutra Class 2 (Friday afternoon 2 hours)
The second aspect of Kriya Yoga is Svadhyaya, self-analysis. An inquiry into the nature of Self and how the Sutra encourage the art of unfolding into one’s most authentic Self.

Asana Class 2 (Saturday morning 2.5 hours)
The ancient masters describe strength as the development of Sushumna Nadi, or the central nervous system and Bandha as a point of stability to explore concentrated awareness. This class will work directly with the nervous system as the link between the Earth’s magnetic field and accessing cellular lightness in our personal sphere.

Sutra Class 3 (Saturday afternoon 2 hours)
The third aspect of Kriya Yoga is Ishwarapranidhana, recognition that there is a greater perspective that holds all of creation in balance. An inquiry into the nature of the spirit and the soul, and how to leverage one’s Karma into Dharma – our unique offering of self to the Self.
