This is an eco-friendly purpose-built retreat center in Kohala, on the Big Island of Hawaii that features a boutique hotel fashioned after 19th century Hawaiian palaces. It strikes this perfect balance between luxury and "home." There is a lovely courtyard, panoramic view of the ocean, salt-water infinity swimming pool, solar-heated hot tub, walking trails, and on-site spa treatments. The facility is located on 50+ acres and produces its own electricity (wind-generated) and organic food: fruits, vegetables, goat cheese and more. Meals are prepared in the fabulous kitchen by professional chefs that use the food grown on the property to create beautiful, delicious cuisine! Get ready. Visit www.hawaiiislandretreat.com to learn more about the retreat center.
In the mornings, we will begin with a short seated meditation, mantra and a mindful practice that will awaken and revitalize your body and open your heart.
In the afternoons/early evenings we will have a second practice that is often more explorative, playful and may involve other aspects and limbs of the yoga practice including partner work, restorative yoga, pranayama, rolling around on the floor like animals, and more! Each practice will strike a balance between effort and ease--depth and play. It is suggested that you have taken a minimum of 10 vinyasa yoga classes before attending this retreat. You will have at least 1 afternoon off to explore the island on your own.
You will be fed very (VERY!) well with fresh, farm-to-table local ingredients-- most of which comes from the retreat center farm! This is a vegetarian retreat, and there will be vegan options, however eggs, milk, yogurt and butter will also be available. There will be plenty of high protein vegetarian options available daily.
You’ll arrive on Sunday, March 11th and we’ll have an evening practice at 5pm, opening circle and dinner. You’ll depart on Friday, March 16th after a morning practice & breakfast, all finishing around 11am.
