CLASSES:

Mon: Hatha Yoga Foundations: 5.30 – 6.45pm

Thurs: Vinyasa Flow: 5.30 – 6.45pm

I first found yoga as a teen in the late 90’s.  An avid student of dance, I initially approached it as many do – another type of workout, to stretch and strengthen–and didn’t give it much thought.  It was only when chronic injuries took me out of my ballet major at the University of Utah did I really begin to explore the importance of kinetics and safe body mechanics, as well as the value of a healthy body image.

Ido Cohen

I was born in Israel but moved to Maui in 2011.  Having surfed since I was 9 years old and spending most of my youth in the water, I came to Hawaii to find the perfect wave and fell in love!

I am as passionate about Yoga as I am surfing, having a daily practice since 2015.  I began studying with Karin Kuhn early in 2016 and connected immediately with her teaching methodology which resonated with me in so many ways and helped me learn to practice in a way that no longer caused me pain.

Alisha Rose Marqui Yoga Maui Hawaii

Rose Marqui

I found yoga at the age of 14 and practiced in my summer breaks. Although my practice was not exceptionally disciplined I fell in love with yoga. Starting at such a young age has given me the opportunity to develop my personal practice and the ability to pass it on to others. Most recently I have trained with Karin Kuhn for the past three years. That experience truly has transformed my practice and my approach with yoga as a whole.

Rose received her 200hr RYT  certification with Karin Kuhn at Maha Yoga in 2018.
