If you are a business offering products or services related to health, take note. In a recent informal Facebook survey, Maui Now found that getting healthy was a top priority in 2011 for our respondents. While by no stretch of the imagination does this survey accurately reflect all of Maui, it does illustrate Maui’s alignment with the historic trend towards health related New Years resolutions.

More yoga in 2011? There are plenty of Yoga Mats at Paia Yoga

Statistics unfortunately show that almost half of all people who make New Years resolutions break them after six months. Perhaps these respondents will be different.

“Do more yoga and dance” —Johnny Be

“More fasting, cleansing, Pilates and less drinking. That should help me accomplish a ton this year on creative endeavors with a clear mind body and spirit!”—Tristen Noel


“Do 10 sessions of Neural Nurturing.” –Eden Sunyatananda Skye


“No more drinking for me. Waking up with a hangover on Christmas Day with 2 beautiful babies just didn’t do it for me or more importantly for my wife.”—Mike Odwyer

“More h2o time, more yoga and more l’amour.”—Robert Zelkovsky
