I like everything about Wai Lana

I like everything about Wai Lana. So many people in New York are yoga people and she has so many fans here. I love the entire set up of her show, the beautiful background, her clothing and the way she explains everything so clearly. I love all the exercises she does. She even does exercises for your eyes! I love the fact that Wai Lana focuses so much on physical health. She is very different from other yoga teachers I have seen.

Wai Lana is just awesome!

Wai Lana is just awesome! I've been practicing with Wai Lana for 5 months and she has made such a huge difference in my life. I'm 76 years old and am getting around like a teenager, it’s incredible what I can do with my body now. I've seen a lot of other people teach yoga however there is something very special about Wai Lana. I used to watch her 6 days a week on my local PBS station, I'm very upset she is only on 2 days a week now.

I love to wake up with Wai Lana in the morning

As a long time practitioner of yoga I find Wai Lana Yoga to be the very best. She does yoga very slowly, the way it is supposed to be done. She also explains all the benefits the body derives from the different yoga postures in a very comprehensive manner. Wai Lana Yoga is the most beautiful and beneficial. The music and scenery are enjoyable, uplifting and meditative. I love to wake up with Wai Lana in the morning. I miss watching her so much since she is no longer aired on my local station in New York, nothing can replace Wai Lana Yoga.

I really benefited from Wai Lana’s instruction on breathing

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.

Wai Lana is just the best

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.


I love Wai Lana!

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 like Wai Lana’s sound meditation

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

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.

Relieves a lot of stress in my body

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.

Gentle and beautiful

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.

I love stretching with Wai Lana Yoga

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 lot of pain and it’s gone now

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.

Love Love Love Wai Lana!

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.

Helped me in so many ways!

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!


Best yoga teacher

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.

Love doing yoga with Wai Lana

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!

Brings me that inner peace

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.

Less anxious about the world

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.

Janet Seaforth

It's wonderful

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.

Yoga gave me the desire to quit smoking

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.
