MAHA Yoga is the signature teaching style and methodology of KARIN KUHN.
Karin’s approach to sharing the practice has been influenced by her teachers, evolved over almost 20 years of teaching and energized by her personal commitment to meet her students where they are in their practice and lives.
Her classes offer a unique learning environment for students to experience yoga as a practice that supports health & wellbeing of body, mind and soul!
Her additional certifications in Personal Training and Corrective Exercise brings a strong focus on intelligent sequencing and the use of props, variations and suitable progressions so that students may take ownership of their personal practice and progress safely at their own pace.
Teaching, rather than merely instructing, she offers precise verbal instruction and gentle adjustments while still encouraging deeper exploration of the practice beyond physical poses.
Karin shares her passionate understanding of all aspects of the practice, physical, energetic and spiritual, with grace and humor. She believes in creating a class environment that supports a balance between serious studentship as well as lots of hugs and laughter.
Karin teaches primarily on her home island of Maui, Hawaii on the famous North Shore, which is renowned for its beaches, hiking, water sports of all kinds and YOGA. Maui draws an eclectic mix of people from around the world who appreciate the near perfect weather, healthy lifestyle, fresh food, outdoor living and aloha spirit – all of which support the yogic lifestyle and practices.
