Journey to Aloha: An Awakening Retreat
Kauai, Hawaii    ~ November 3rd-8th 2024

Adventures that Await

​Kauai, considered an energy vortex that has been referred to as the Third Eye Chakra of the planet, is the oldest of the Hawaiian Islands, with the majority of the land being untouched by development.  It is a power spot for more "mana" (Hawaiian for "life force" - called "prana" in yoga) than any other destination on Earth!



What to Expect:

~Daily yoga and meditation classes with breathtaking views of the ocean and mountains at our favorite locations on the island

~ Opportunities to discover a better balance within through activating your chakras (energy centers), integrating Ayurveda (the sister science of yoga), tapping into your subtle body energy, and other outlets of creativity

~ Guided oceanside, jungle, and elevation hikes to take in all the stunning scenery of the island

~Extra special gatherings at our favorite places and sights on the island while enjoying the aloha spirit

~ Excursions from sea to sky!

~ It's hard to believe the Pacific tropical oasis of Kauai is US soil, allowing you to travel to and from the mainland more freely and safely.


*** You will also have plenty of free time to relax, explore, and experience the island ~ all planned retreat activities are optional. ***


Accommodations at the Sheraton Kauai Coconut   Beach Resort

Your Hawaiian Hosts

 We have both traveled multiple times to the beautiful island of Kauai and explored the island sea to sky. 

It is a dream to be able to offer two of our much loved pastimes ~ Yoga & Hawaii!
