I think that Wai Lana is probably one of the strongest women that I’ve seen, she makes the poses look so extremely easy. But when I was a beginner and I turned on the show and tried it out, I didn’t feel intimidated; I only felt inspired to find that strength too.
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 dance a lot. I started dancing as an adult so the flexibility isn’t there as much as for a young person and it just helps my flexibility. The Cobra poses and the different poses help with the flexibility of the spine. I do one of Wai Lana’s videos before I go to dance class to help me get warmed up and ready.
Wai Lana Yoga in particular is really strength building. She does very well thought-out, consecutive poses that help build your strength yet you feel very relaxed by the end of the session.
I’ve been in the service industry, serving food and bartending. And I always had so much pain in my shoulders from the heavy lifting and the trays, and with the Wai Lana Yoga… all that tension and stress has just gone away. I have no more shoulder pain, I feel like I stand up taller. I can breathe deeper. I feel amazing.
I like to spend time with Wai Lana. I like that I can practice her show quietly at home.
Sometimes if I’m feeling a little blue, I put in a Wai Lana Yoga video just to watch because they’re so beautiful that they’re very uplifting for me.
While practicing with Wai Lana, it helps make my activities easier. Also picking up things… because sometimes, when we age, we get a little stiff, so it helps me to relax those muscles. When I wake up early in the morning, it’s just best to work with Wai Lana, first thing.
The sounds in Wai Lana’s sound meditation take you away. They put the mind in the right place instead of my thoughts wandering in silent meditation.
It’s easier to handle things that come my way during the day because I’m doing Wai Lana Yoga and I’m calmer. When things happen, no matter what it is—you get cut off on the freeway, or you can’t find your keys—I just take a deep breath, and I’m learning to observe things rather than take part in all the drama that the day can bring. It’s helpful. It’s peaceful.
I do Wai Lana exercises every day. I lost 6 lbs and owe it all to Wai Lana!
I particularly like the meditation part of Wai Lana because I am a type A personality. As a type A personality, the more I can do to relax and kick back and meditate, the better off I am from a physiological standpoint and a psychological standpoint.

I am so impressed with the Deluxe Hibiscus Totes. The design is absolutely gorgeous and I love all of the colors. The shoulder strap is a great size, I love the zipper and the lining. They are so beautiful. I've been buying Wai Lana products for years. I have her DVD's, cd's and mats. I think she is absolutely wonderful and gorgeous. I just love her products, they are really good.
The way Wai Lana teaches relaxation is, in a way, the dessert on the yoga meal. It really helps to seal in the benefits of the poses, and we’ve found that it’s actually kind of a new approach. I’ve done relaxation stuff. But to take each body part, going say from the toes to the feet to the ankles, is really very helpful.
My osteopenia, it hasn’t progressed. I’m certain that it’s due to practicing yoga with Wai Lana.
I started with the power yoga, which I have to say was very lovely for a long period of time, however I injured myself. And after that injury, I was not able to recover and continue doing power yoga. So I started switching around looking for something that would be gentler on my body. And it was really nice to find Wai Lana’s videos. It was nice to see the progression, with no injury.

I just love Wai Lana, she is really, really good. I watched 5 different yoga instructors before finding Wai Lana and she is definitely the best.
I had a stroke in June. At first I started doing some easier yoga, then I started practicing the Hello Fitness Series which really helped me a lot. I also have vertigo and get panic attacks, I was very scared I was going to get another stroke. It’s a miracle how much practicing Wai Lana Yoga has helped me. If it were not for Wai Lana's tapes I would not be feeling as good as I do now. My body is also getting firm which is great. Thank you very much.
Wai Lana has a sense of serenity and clarity so that you can run through the exercises knowing what is expected of you. She doesn’t push to the point where you are afraid of injuries and she leaves you with both a physical and an emotional serenity.

I’ve always had an interest in yoga but never pursued it. I've seen many yoga dvds but it wasn’t until I discovered Wai Lana on tv while I was travelling that she really made everything make sense. She really moved me from just thinking about doing yoga to taking action and doing yoga.

I'm 83 years old and I've been practicing Wai Lana Yoga for 20 years. I use her tapes every morning, they really help.
When I was in the hospital 12 years ago for a knee replacement I brought my Wai Lana tapes with me. i did all of the sitting up exercises I could. People kept coming in the room to see what I was doing because they loved the music on the tapes so much.
Hola wai lana ..I watch you every day at 5:00-6:00 am Oklahoma time ......I love yoga!! Just wanted to say hola from Rose Moreno!
JuanitaI feel amazing after practicing Wai Lana Yoga. I've been practicing yoga for about 36 years and discovered Wai Lana a few years ago. Other yoga teachers don't make me feel amazing like Wai Lana does. I feel happy and my body becomes energized.Wai Lana has a great personality, has nice energy, is happy and has a beautiful way about her. I love that the ocean is in the background when she is teaching yoga.
I love Wai Lana. I've been practicing with Wai Lana for many years, she is really good and I really like her yoga sessions. My husband and I are great admirers. I really like the fact that during her yoga sessions she only says what needs to be said. She is classy, beautiful and I love her clothes.
I watch Wai Lana on PBS every day. Today I saw Yoga for Office Work where everything was done in a chair. It was fabulous, I just loved it! It is something I could do at work.
