I really benefited from Wai Lana’s instruction on breathing—how to use the diaphragm and breathe fully. Part of my condition was that I wasn’t using the lower part of my lungs. I was breathing shallowly through the upper part of my lungs, and I had to practice learning how to breathe correctly.
Over the years, many people who have been introduced to yoga by Wai Lana, or who have been inspired by her in their yoga practice, have written with questions or gracious expressions of gratitude.
I have a very extensive library of yoga and meditation teachings. Wai Lana is probably one of the best I have been able to work with. Her products are also very affordable which is very nice.
Wai Lana is just the best, her show is just perfect! She is very encouraging and just an excellent teacher. I feel 20 years younger doing Wai Lana Yoga. I feel more limber and my breathing is so much better.
Wai Lana Yoga is the best yoga I have ever seen. Wai Lana really knows what she is talking about.
I love Wai Lana! I've been doing Wai Lana Yoga religiously for 1 year after I initially discovered her on my local PBS station. I really depend on her to get my day going, it's a really big part of my life. My body has changed so much, it's doing things I never thought it could do before. It twists in ways I never thought it could twist, I'm even doing headstands! Thank you Wai Lana and to everyone that has made this show possible.
I'm 73 years old and watch Wai Lana Yoga every morning on PBS. I love the ocean, the scenery and the exercises. The music is very nice and relaxing.
I like Wai Lana’s sound meditation because of the experience I had in silent meditation. With the silence it’s like your thoughts are moving or wandering. That’s definitely a distinct difference in Wai Lana’s sound meditation versus the silent meditation. It puts the mind in the right place instead of your thoughts wandering in silent meditation.
I have been practicing neti every day for a year now, and for the first time I can remember, I didn’t get sick during cold and flu season. When my husband got sick, my son caught it as well. I increased my neti practice to twice a day while they were sick and I never caught it! That’s unheard of for me. I am so grateful to you for teaching me this wonderful technique. I have encouraged all my friends and family to try neti.
As a massage therapist and a full-body reflexologist, I’ve used a lot of Wai Lana’s music in my therapy with my clients, and I find it really relaxing. It relieves a lot of stress in my body, and the relaxation that it promotes within myself gets transferred to my clients and makes my treatment more satisfying and more successful for them.
The best thing is that she’s very gentle and beautiful. I love to watch the background and what she’s wearing. But her gentleness really comes through in that I don’t feel pressured to do the moves farther than I should. I don’t feel like I have to look exactly like Wai Lana when I’m doing them. I like that.
Wai Lana is a great brand with a health conscious awareness. They produce these amazingly delicious cassava chips, that are healthy and great in taste. They understand that healthy products can be both great for your body an delicious on the go.
A day without Wai Lana is like a day without sunshine! I love stretching with Wai Lana Yoga every morning. I also enjoy listening to the Meditation Trilogy. Practicing the “Rest and Relax” helps me breathe better.
I used to have a problem with digestion. And I've noticed that since I started doing the Wai Lana Yoga DVDs about a year ago, I haven't had those problems anymore. I used to have a lot of pain and it’s gone now. I do believe that practicing with the DVDs has helped with that a lot. It's very exciting.
I Love Love Love Wai Lana! I love her PBS show and her DVD's. When Wai Lana used to air on my local station, although my friend and I lived in different cities, we would do Wai Lana Yoga at the same time together.
I really enjoy Wai Lana's PBS program. If it were not for Wai Lana Yoga, I would be in a lot of pain. She has made such a wonderful impact on my life and has helped me in so many ways!

I am a yoga teacher and have been doing Wai Lana Yoga on PBS for many years. Wai Lana is so wonderful and I appreciate what she does. All I can say is that to me, she is one of the best yoga teachers. It is not just the yoga but the spirituality of her teaching. She is excellent in her techniques and she also teaches people to relax and breath. She is the best in my opinion.
I love doing yoga with Wai Lana. What sets Wai Lana apart from any other yoga program I have seen are the beautiful outfits she wears and the scenery is just so beautiful. I also love Wai Lana's music. It really gives me a boost!
Wai Lana Yoga has been so complete for me. It's working on your skeletal structure, it's working on your organs, and it's working on the neurological part of your body. It works on every part of your body. And every day that I do the yoga, and I get quieter and more peaceful, I find that I become more spiritually awakened. And I can bring that into my work. As a massage therapist, it's really important for me to be grounded and for me to feel good because I need to transfer that to my clients. Wai Lana Yoga brings me that inner peace.
After doing Wai Lana Yoga, I carry it with me. I am able to be present with my breath in that same calm manner that I achieved while doing Wai Lana Yoga. Carrying it with me as I go about my everyday business in the world keeps me grounded, keeps me centered, keeps me focused and less anxious about the world and my place in it.
I’ve been in several auto accidents in my lifetime, and I’ve had a lot of whiplash and lower back problems from that. I’ve also had a lot of stress lately, and my neck is my weak point. So I knew I needed to do something. When I was flipping through the channels and found Wai Lana Yoga, I was thinking I could try this yoga, maybe just three times a week or so. And within two weeks, my neck isn’t hurting me anymore. It’s wonderful.
I used to smoke and yoga gave me the desire to quit smoking, and to stick with it. I think smoking is really that your body wants to breathe. You really want oxygen, not nicotine. So what I do now is breathe deeply. It's like the same act as smoking that cigarette, yet I am breathing oxygen. Doing the yoga makes me more aware of my body, more aware of my breath.
With Wai Lana’s tone and the mood she sets, you’re able to calm down. When I come home from my job on the floor of the stock exchange, my energy is a 10. I’m bouncing off the walls. My wife is like, “Just relax.” And with Wai Lana, I’m able to come back and find myself and slow down and just remember who I am and what I’m about. Yoga and Wai Lana has done that.
I do the meditations with her and it’s as if the spirit that connects you to the divine is there. It’s encircling you. I am growing spiritually through her DVDs as well as changing my body physically and feeling my emotions lightened.
I started seeing improvement in my lower back pain and my varicose veins right away. Over time, I have also seen a reduction in the oiliness of my skin, which was also a byproduct of the hormonal imbalance, as well as the acne clearing up. And I do attribute that to the regular use of Wai Lana’s DVDs.
The bottom line is that yoga has certainly helped me a great deal with stress, blood pressure, and flexibility. I wake up in the morning raring to go. I just don't seem to have the problems that many people have when they get older. I don’t have the aches and pains. I am very fortunate because there is a history of heart disease in my family. My doctor's aware of that and he is amazed. He says, "Don you are doing very, very well. Keep it up. Keep up the yoga.” So I thought that was very good. He's a specialist and I have worked with him for some time. He is very pleased with my progress.
