Typically, yoga studios feature glossy wood floors and big windows that let in plenty of natural light. However, at Salt Yoga in Waikiki, the setting is anything but typical: the big windows are instead the wide-open sky, the hardwood floors the gentle waters of a cove. Even the mats are different; instead of standing atop flat beds of foam, yogis balance on specially designed standup paddleboards that float on the surface. Led by certified yoga teacher Peter Jacobsen, students paddle out to the designated spot before executing carefully planned routines while safely anchored in flat water.

MoonStruck Yogi isn't just a yoga studio; it's a sanctuary for individuals seeking community, empowerment, and an extra dose of flexibility and balance. Between its violet walls and hardwood floors, students of all levels gather for motivating classes filled with strength-building poses, deep-breathing exercises, and stretches as relaxing as a massage from a lavender sachet. To help yogis forge friendships, teachers encourage after-class mingling by initiating friendly conversations or brewing fresh chai tea.
