Pay homage to the ancient Hawaiian village of Kahuwai, visit the sacred volcanic lake Ka Lua Wai a Pele, and be awed by the fabled place of Pu`u Ha`eha`e. Enter the lowland rainforest of Puna and learn about this special `āina (land). Learn about native botanicals and their healing attributes, traditional chants and mo`olelo (stories), and prepare offerings to the volcano goddess Pele.

About the Facilitator(s)

Lynda Saffery Tu‘a received her formal training from a 1988 State Foundation on Culture and the Arts, Apprentice Grant for Ulana Lauhala, a 1989 State Foundation on Culture and the Arts, Masters Grant for Ulana Lauhala and a 2002 sabbatical to Tonga to study weaving and kapa making and design.

She continues to teach the traditional ways and designs of the kupuna, enjoys being part of the holua culture and ulana makaloa revival, and uses and teaches la‘au lapa‘au (traditional herbal medicine). She especially finds fulfillment in honoring Wahi Pana (Sacred Places).

Wailana Simcock was born in the Philippines to a Pinay mother and a New Zealand father and was raised in O'ahu since age 5. He speaks fluent Tagalog and Hawaiian and is influenced by his own and of Hawaii's native cultural practices. The history of colonialism in the places he was born and raised in has impelled him to question the ideas of race, culture, and power. Wailana is trained in Hula, Modern, and Aerial Dance. He performed with the groundbreaking productions of 'Ulalena (Maui) and Waikiki Nei (O'ahu). Designing a unique multidisciplinary degree at the University of Hawai'i at Hilo titled “Culture and Performance in Contemporary Hawaii” (2006), Simcock merged Hawaiian language, culture, and ethos with western theater arts. He continues with this focus in his participation with N2 Dance program (Maika and ‘Ānela Woods) in the honorable Hawaiian immersion school Nāwahīokalani‘ōpu‘u (K-12) where he teaches western dance theater constructs in the Hawaiian language.

About the Facilitator(s)

Gena Kenny

Gena Kenny

Gena has been teaching yoga for over 15 years. Her studies began with Jilda Liddicut of the Gaia School of Yoga. She has continued expanding her yoga studies under the guidance of internationally renowned teacher Donna Farhi. Her teaching focuses on nurturing from the inside – out. This approach allows students of all levels of experience and from all traditions to build their own authentic Yoga practice.

“My connection to Hawaii and the spirit of Polynesia comes from a twenty year history of paddling outrigger canoes. Through my many travels to Hawaii, I have had the opportunity to discover the magic of the Polynesian Islands and peoples. In essence the spirit of the islands is "Aloha", which means to be kind, nurturing and loving to yourself, to others and to the planet.”

The creation of "`Ohana Yoga" comes from blending this 'magic' and 'spirit' into her own unique style of teaching. Gena has also authored a book and dvd "The Gift of Yoga".

Kent Cuthbert

Kent has a lifelong passion for the outdoors and an active lifestyle. From participating in sports from an early age right up to competing in 5 Ironman Triathlon events Kent has continued to find reasons to be outside. After spending fifteen years as a professional in the corporate world he followed his passion and currently owns and operates Kayak Melbourne a tour business in Australia, and assists Gena as partner in Ohana Yoga & Wellness.

Yoga, Natural Earth Excursions & Conversations in Consciousness

Susan Bowen & Zoe Marae

In our retreat we will experience being in this beautiful land, walking together in deep inner flow, exploring waterfalls, volcanoes, ocean, fresh air. Retreat to explore yoga, healthy food, and grounding permanent expansion of your soul through heart in an energized body. Perfect timing…2012, now, a new human experience-living in an activating body.

About the Facilitator(s)

Susan Bowen.  Studio owner of Thrive Yoga, Rockville, MD is a RYT500 and Certified ISHTA Yoga Instructor & Certified Baptiste Power Vinyasa Yoga Instructor. Susan’s classes are challenging and inspire students to explore the practice of unifying the breath, mind and body to a place of comfort from the common Western habit of distraction and discomfort.

Susan has studied and practiced more than 12 yoga styles and encourages students to explore what works for them in yoga without concern for the “right” way to practice. Susan was first introduced to yoga 20 years ago while in college and has studied and practiced yoga while traveling for 15 years in the corporate world. Because of many years in a high-stress job (tight shoulders and distracted mind), Susan sequences yoga classes to help students de-stress, de-tox and become more aware of their own vitality. Sometimes that means getting more fit through movement and breathing exercises… sometimes that means hands-on assistance to stretch an ailing or tight muscle! Susan cues her classes to inspire awareness of the whole being-physical, emotion, mental and spiritual.

Susan has been honored as a leading woman entrepreneur in Montgomery County, MD for over a decade. As the Director of Programming for Thrive Yoga, she has been responsible for bringing both classical and cutting-edge yoga and wellness programs and staff to the studio. Susan facilitates and lectures at corporate, non-profit, and government events and retreats on a variety of topics including: stress-management, goal setting, and techniques for greater vitality in a busy world.

Zoe Marae.  Dr. Marae has a PhD in biological science. For 15 years, she did medical research on complex multi-system disease leading to a joint appointment at Harvard Medical School and Children’s Hospital, Boston. Zoe Marae is a scientist who believes in “magic” (Vibrational magic, that is). She playfully refers to herself as a “mapmaker” specializing in formats (maps) of higher personal energy flow. These very practical maps lead to transformation inside (peace and flow) as well as outside (new life attractions). Her “zoeisms” combine vibrational physics with graphic humor… functional and entertaining!
