HOT + Flow 500 HOURS, march 26 - may 19, 2018


Complete your hot yoga teacher training in Hawaii on the captivating island of Oahu. Spend four weeks in paradise as you live the life of a yogi, practice in alluring studios and on spectacular beaches and deepen your yoga knowledge with the evolation team.

During this 500 hour 8 week immersion training, you will be fully equipped to teach Hot 26+2 and Vinyasa classes and will be qualified for your RYT 500 Hour Certification through Yoga Alliance. This course also contains an intro to Yin Yoga.



The training is located on the enticing 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. 


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
