Waikīkī- Sunset Yoga Hawaiʻi
Many visitors stay in Waikīkī, so it’s important to point out a great spot for daily yoga practice within walking distance of your hotel. Sunset Yoga Hawaiʻi offers morning and sunset yoga sessions every day, held at the eastern end of Waikīkī towards Diamond Head (and away from the biggest crowds). Classes are held in a grassy area that’s typically frequented more by locals than tourists. Book your class on their website to find out the exact location. They also offer mindfulness waterfall hike days, with yoga and meditation mixed in. It’s a great chance to find a little peace outside the bustling city, you’ll love this hybrid O’ahu yoga class.

With three O’ahu yoga locations to choose from (Kahala, Piʻikoi, and University), Power Yoga Hawaiʻi is the place to go if you want to seriously sweat. They offer classes in Original Power Yoga (Kest Style), Thirumoolar Ashtanga, Shakti Flow, and Bhakti Flow. All classes are on a donation basis; $15 is the suggested amount. No reservations are needed.

Located in the historic neighborhood of Kaimuki (just behind Diamond Head), you’ll find one of Honolulu’s best yoga shalas. Yoga Hawaiʻi’s open and welcoming approach will make any newcomer feel at home. It’s only $5 for your first class, but you’ll want to come back for more.
