Yoga and Meditation

Yoga and Meditation Retreat

Lino Laure and Maxwell Starkhouse

Meditation Waterfall ImageThe tradition of practicing yoga and meditation (dhyana) are two complimentary systems. They have been around for thousands of years. Because of their universal and beneficial effects, they have both withstood the test of time. Many people from all walks of life enjoy the practice of yoga and meditation today in our modern world. Yet, their roots come from the rich traditions of the Vedic sciences of India.

I try to make my messages human, poetic, inclusive, humorous, accessible and comprehensible to everyone.

Introduction to Yoga Retreat for Men

Joel Benjamin, jaRed sam & Dennis Dehler

WaterfallEscape the winter season to Hawaii, where you can experience the joy of discovering the benefits of the ancient practice of yoga.  Join an all male group of beginning yoga practitioners on the Big Island as we explore the basics of a gentle yoga practice at Kalani Oceanside Retreat.   Under the guidance of Joel, JaRed and Dennis, we’ll explore kundalini breathwork and meditation, stretching, chanting and partner yoga in a relaxing, tropical environment

About the Facilitator(s)

Joel BenjaminJoel Benjamin

Joel Benjamin is very excited to be teaching a yoga retreat at Kalani- one of his most favorite places on the planet. He has been practicing yoga since 1998, and has been teaching since 2004. Joel believes that when the ancient yogis created what we refer to today as yoga, it was never their intention to design a series of exercises to develop "yoga butt," (even though this is how many in the West have come to view this 5,000 year old art form.) Yoga is a system of breathwork, mindfulness, and physical postures all designed to improve the quality of our lives by bringing us into the present moment, opening our hearts, and making us better human beings. At its core, Joel believes that the true intention of yoga is to create embodied presence and emotional responsiveness.

Joel has a BFA from Syracuse University in Theatre, and is certified to teach yoga from Pacific Yoga, and master teacher Max Strom. He is also a member of the Yoga Alliance. Joel owns Yoga Shack, a private yoga school in the Georgetown neighborhood of Seattle.
