Our names are Ashlie McGuire and Seeta Krumpe. We are two certified yoga instructors and tour guides on the beautiful island of Maui. We are best friends who met in nursing school at The University of Hawaii Maui College. We both had similar ideas of what we wanted to do with our lives, and immediately bonded over the idea of combining our love for adventure with our passion for yoga. We eventually decided that we no longer wished to pursue nursing, and resolved to go in a more non-traditional rout. We love to go on adventures and we share a burning passion and curiosity for life and exploring our beautiful ‘Aina (land).
We decided that every time we got a day off together we would show each other somewhere on the island that one of us had never been before. We were soon exploring uncharted territory for both of us and ended up discovering some profoundly magical spots. When we are in nature we always incorporate our love of yoga into the adventure.
We feel at peace and in tune with ourselves when we are practicing yoga in some of the most pristine and breathtakingly beautiful landscapes on the planet. We found ourselves healed by this paradise where we have both been so lucky to grow up in. Maui is a huge piece of who we are.
We created Maui Yoga Tours to share the therapeutic and spiritual benefits of what we do for fun on our days off with visitors and Kama’aina (locals) alike who may normally not get to see the island the way we get to see it. We believe in sustainable, eco-friendly, tours that educate visitors about our island and encourage guests to reconnect with their inner selves though unity with nature.
