Racher Tarver yoga maui hawaii

Rachel Tarver

I first found yoga after coming close to injury during strenuous competitive exercise in 2011. Yoga started to transform both my wounded body and spirit. Yoga became so much more than a way to stretch and move the body; it became a practice of self study, self realization, and a way of life.  After completing hatha and vinyasa yoga teacher training at Maui Yoga Shala 200RYT in 2016 with Karin Kuhn, my true passion blossomed here on Maui and I answered the call to the path.
