`Ohana Yoga Retreat 2014

Gena Kenny & Kent Cuthbert

August 21, 2014 - August 28, 2014

The Ultimate Yoga Retreat

Come and experience yoga, adventure, and the spirit of Polynesia all in the most spectacular venue on the Big Island of Hawaii.

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.

He loves to facilitate helping others get active and have memorable adventures, ensuring his groups have fun filled, safe experiences. He has worked with diverse groups at all levels of fitness and age groups from high school students to Corporate Teams. He has a wealth of fitness related knowledge and is a trained Pilates instructor

Ecstatic Living Retreat

Max Fathom, Maxwell Starkhouse & Lino Laure

July 16, 2014 - July 20, 2014

Ecstatic Living Retreat PosterAloha!

About the Facilitator(s)

Max Fathom

Max Fathom

Max came to the conscious dance movement through the "doorway" of a 5 Rhythms group in Austin,Texas called Body Choir. After 5 years with that group he moved to Hawaii and started Ecstatic Dance Big Island. This group spawned many other groups around the country, the largest of which is Ecstatic Dance East Bay, which itself has spawned many groups around the country, as well as the planet. This movement is expanding. “I feel like my particular contribution to the conscious dance movement and specifically what is now commonly referred to as Ecstatic Dance, has to do with combining the electronic dance music that is part and parcel of the DJ culture and the 5 Rhythms or Wave format that was created by Gabrielle Roth. The wave is a perfect fit for facilitating ritual, community dance space. I enjoy using electronic music for these events, equally I have a vastmusical collection and nothing is off limits if I believe that it will inspire, motivate, move and touch the participants on the dance floor. I am excited to see this movement grow because I believe it is a valuable and worthwhile contribution to our New Earth and our awakening human collective.”

Maxwell Starkhouse

Maxwell StarkhouseMaxwell first came to the Big Island of Hawaii in 2001 as a volunteer at Kalani Honua. He soon discovered Ecstatic Dance and was so inspired by the musical, dance journey that he began to attend the weekly dances at Kalani as well as attending various yoga classes a few times a week. In 2003 he completed his first yoga teacher training with Kathy Elder and began teaching weekly Intuitive Yoga classes. In the same year he became a Licensed Massage Therapist and began offering sessions. He then went on to travel to Chicago for a Yogic Arts teacher training and then onto India to practice Ashtanga Yoga in Kerala and discovered Vipassana Meditation in Gujarat. When he returned to Hawaii and the dance community, he yearned for more tribal and world music. So this inspired him to become a DJ. In 2009, he DJ-ed at Kalani’s Ecstatic Dance and has been collecting music and DJ-ing ever since. At Kalani, he also teaches Intuitive Yoga classes, Intuitive Aquatic Movement classes (in the warm therapy pool) and works as a Massage Therapist, offering sessions on the massage table and, uniquely, in the water. He also enjoys playing various musical instruments, spinning fire, bodysurfing and playing in Hawaii's nature.

Lino Laure

Lino LaureLino discovered the joy of Ecstatic Dance at Kalani in 2003 when he moved to the Big Island of Hawaii 10 years ago. Dancing has always been part of his life and the nature of Ecstatic Dance, as a conscious dance process, fulfilled his spiritual inclinations. In 2009 when Lino moved to Kalani, he accepted the honor of facilitator for Ecstatic Dance Hawaii (one of the largest venue in the US) and has been facilitator for Ecstatic Dance Hawaii since. In his personal life, Lino has been practicing meditation for over thirty years and studied under the auspices of his teacher, JK Gurukal, a master healer and martial artist from Kerala, India, learning aspects of yoga, meditation, martial arts and the healing arts: applied sciences from the tradition of Dhanurveda. Lino is also a painter and artist. He enjoys sharing all of his various skills by way of teaching and facilitating workshops and classes at Kalani, on the Big Island of Hawaii, where he also resides.
