July 28 - August 4 2018
There's a Hawaiian saying, "Maui no ka oi" that translates to "Maui is the best." The Hawaiian royalty chose to live on Maui before Europeans arrived on ships. Today, Maui has been voted "Best Island in the World" over 20 times by Conde Nast Traveler Readers' Choice Awards poll. Maui has it all - amazing beaches, volcanic mountains, bamboo forests, dramatic waterfalls, and outstanding aquatic life.
While we will practice yoga and meditation daily, our retreat will be very active to take advantage of all there is to experience in Maui. Summertime is great for surfing, boogie boarding and snorkeling as the waters are calmer and more manageable for the average person. When not swimming in the heavenly Pacific Ocean we have activities planned including a sunrise hike from a volcano summit into it's crater and trekking through a bamboo forest to visit the seven sacred pools for a dip and optional cliff dive. Come experience paradise with us to refresh your mind, body and spirit!
