Love is the Answer

Hawaii Forrest Yoga Retreat

January 25-31, 2015

Nurture your Spirit in paradise on this 7-day, 6-night Forrest Yoga Retreat at Kalani on Hawaii Island. 

Students of all levels are invited to participate in this heart-opening experience – designed to connect you with your breath, moment to moment, on a journey of self-inquiry where Love is the Answer.

Yoga and meditation take us on an exploration of our inner paradise – helping us to discover and polish our unique gifts of beauty. We’ll begin each morning’s session with intention setting, calling the 4 directions, drumming with song, meditation, and then dive deep into practice, with lots of individual attention and hands-on assists. In the afternoon or evening we’ll have a second, shorter session. By the end of the week, you’ll feel all the beneficial effects of your yoga immersion infused with the Aloha spirit of Hawaii.

The daily program includes:

  • 2 yoga classes
  • Heart-opening chanting and meditation with morning sessions
  • Lodging
  • 3 delicious buffet-style meals, with vegetarian and gluten-free options
  • Use of Kalani’s amenities, including hot tubs, pool, and sauna
  • Hawaiian Culture classes offered by Kalani: Lauhala weaving and Hula
  • Bonfire overlooking the ocean
  • Plenty of free time to explore the local warm pools and beach
  • For an additional fee, sign up for a massage or Watsu session with one of Kalani’s talented bodyworkers, or go on an off-site excursion
