As space is limited, reservations are recommended and can be made by calling (808) 875-4325 or signing up online. Participants may pre-register for one class and sign up on a waitlist for further classes.
808 Wellness Center is located at 2439 South Kīhei Road within the Rainbow Mall. The center is located within suite 206-A and the studio is located within suite 208-A.
Founders Alan and Sara Schroepfer opened 808 Wellness Center in 2016, and prior to that have been serving the community of Maui in various healing capacities for over a decade. The center currently offers a full range of holistic health care for locals and visitors of all ages. Traditional Chinese Medicine, massage therapy and energy healing are among the most popular treatments.
“Community is one aspect I notice that gets left out of the equation of integrating wellness in life,” said Sara Schroepfer. “To incorporate all elements – physical, emotional, mental and spiritual – a community truly allows individuals the opportunity to become whole and find their center.”

The studio holds daily yoga and wellness classes in a variety of disciplines. Speciality workshops and trainings are also available. The Schroepfer’s believe that becoming a part of a wellness community within one’s neighborhood can expand an individual’s knowledge base and help support them in becoming a balanced, centered and happy person. A wellness community not only shares many tools and lessons for personal growth, but for the growth of the entire community.
The expansion of a community studio was inspired by Sara Schroepfer’s experience in India where she lived in an ashram outside of Rishikesh. “The biggest impression it left on me was the immense benefit of having a true sangha, or spiritual community, that supported every individual, regardless of skill or knowledge,” said Sara Schroepfer. “The only requirement was an openness to become a part of something more than what you could achieve on your own.”
The studio is 700 square feet, and can seat up to 50 individuals. For yoga or movement classes the studio can accommodate 25 individuals. The studio is available to rent for wellness classes, workshops and events starting at $35 an hour. Wellness providers renting the space will have access to yoga mats, blocks, meditation cushions and/or bolsters, ten folding chairs, complimentary wifi, air conditioning and a bluetooth sound system.
“808 Wellness is a sanctuary where people can come heal,” said Alan Schroepfer. “It is a place where people can learn about their bodies. It is a place where people can teach and share their knowledge and wisdom with the community. All these things help uplift the soul.”
