A Big Island Retreat
November 5 – 12, 2018
A week filled with sacred ritual, yoga, delicious local vegetarian meals,
lots of time in the water, under the sun, on the sand. Hikes to waterfalls, volcanic formations, chocolate plantations, fruit orchards, COFFEE. Snorkeling, stand-up paddleboarding, sailing! Our home base
will be in the Pahoa region, at a gorgeous eco-retreat called Kirpal Ecological & Meditation Center. Visit: http://kmechawaii.org/
Our morning yoga practices will include chanting, traditional pranayama practices, alignment-based movement, and plenty of time spent in meditation. Our evening yoga practices will be a bit more fluid – depending on our group energy we might explore yin, restorative, gentle, kundalini, dancing, chanting... whatever calls to us! Every practice will be all-levels, with options to enhance or modify.
We will spend the week cultivating and deepening our connection, gratitude and love for the out-of-doors, for our yoga & meditation practice, for those we spend time with and of course for and with ourselves. This is a beautiful way to reTREAT yourself – on the Big Island of Hawaii with your yoga peeps!
