Kauai, Hawaii Yoga Retreat
Yoga – Meditation – Snorkeling – Hiking
April 10-17, 2020
Welcome to our first Yoga Retreat in Kauai. We did one retreat on Maui some years ago, and dozens of other trips around the world, but this will be trip number one to Kauai, and we have ideas for an amazing combo of yoga, meditation, hiking, beaching, snorkeling, kayaking, paddleboarding, eating healthy delicious food and more. This will be a small, intimate group of about 14, and should fill fast, so do not delay.
Beautiful like all the Hawaiian islands, yet smaller, lush, unpretentious, and friendly, Kauai is often seen as the third eye chakra of the islands, for clear seeing. Yoga, Meditation, Healing, Snorkeling, Swimming, Hiking, and Sunshine. Price (depending on room selection) includes 7 nights hotel, 2 meals a day, fresh coffee and tea, all ground transport on the island, snorkeling trips, Napali Coast boat trip, guided hiking, all classes and workshops. Roy Holman and Liz Gross offer heart-centered, breath connected, body-friendly yoga and meditation. Note: Please fly into Lihue Airport on Kauai.
The truth is, most of us do not feel so good about ourselves. At best, some of us accept ourselves for who we are, and a few even truly honor ourselves. But the norm, unfortunately, is that most of us wallow in low self esteem, low sell acceptance, or even self loathing, shame and guilt. We will explore the roots of this common disease, and more importantly, guide us out of this mess with a road map to self love.
We will stay at a beautiful and conveniently located Kauai Retreat Center. It is less than an hour from the Lihue airport, conveniently located so we can access the beautiful northern beaches and villages, but also the sunny southern beaches, towns, sites and Waimea Canyon. The hotel has 6 simple but comfy rooms, a nice outdoor but covered yoga patio, and a hot tub.
Instructors, Cooks and Guides:
Heart centered, breath connected yoga for every body. Roy Holman is 500 hour trained in viniyoga, has taught yoga and meditation since 2000, and teaches a heartfelt, breath connected, meditative class. He is also certified in meditation, reflexology, hands on energy healing, HeartMath and other healing arts. Liz Gross will also teach her meditative yoga, as well as offer her healing gifts as a side option. She is also an excellent cook and along with Roy, will offer healthy delicious meals (two meals a day included). Please see details on the style of yoga on instructor page.
Activities and Schedule:
The whales should be around! We have morning and / or sunset yoga, healing workshops, snorkeling, swimming, hikes, ocean wildlife sighting, and many other options. Lihue Airport is the primary airport on Kauai island and receives both overseas and inter island flights. This is where we fly in and out of. Shuttles are included (when possible if you arrive at reasonable times!) and will be arranged to and from hotel.
