March 12th - March 17th, 2018



Immerse yourself in week of yoga with world-renowned instructors in Hawaii! Spend five nights in Hawaii focusing on yourself, deepening your practice, and eating great food! This is a special New Years immersion that will prepare you to take on the new year with clarity and energy from within. 



The training is located on the island of Oahu only a short ride from the airport, Honolulu, Waikiki and Diamond Head. We will still be secluded in our own Hawaiian yoga world steps away from Kailua and Lanikai beaches.

In your free time, possible activities include beach lounging, snorkeling, hiking (amazing views - especially for sunrise/senset) and merely walking down the expansive white sand beaches can give you an unmatched feeling of tranquility.



Our all-inclusive food program consists of filling, healthy, and delicious vegetarian meals prepared by private chefs. We will also accommodate other dietary restrictions and food allergies

Your daily practice is at Bella Kai Yoga, a warm and inviting space with a glorious view of the majestic Ko’olau Mountains.

Bella Kai is a community oriented studio with offerings in Hot & Yin yoga as well as Barre classes. The studio even has a program called "Warriors at Ease" where veterans, active-duties and dependents can practice for free. 



For a short but immersive weekend, you will live, study, and practice alongside a small group of other likeminded aspiring yogis, creating friendships and bonds that can last a lifetime. 

"This isn’t just a company making money selling yoga, but a true family sharing love and knowledge in the purest way. I am reminded of WHY we teach yoga… to help people to connect to the highest version of themselves, to become healthy in body, mind and spirit."

-Zana O'Conell, Evolation Graduate

About Zefea

In 2009 Zefea and her husband Mark Drost founded evolation yoga in a desire to evolve the way the Primary Hot series is passed on and to focus on a collective and community approach. They have conducted hot yoga teacher trainings since. Over 20 trainings and more than 250 trainees later, Zefea feels that they truly have developed an inspiring and effective service.
