Dennis

Dennis agrees with Pattabhi Jois' statement in the movie Enlighten Up that the main goal of yoga is to discipline the mind. Dennis feels that Kundalini Yoga is one of the most effective, fun and quickest methods to practice the art of disciplining the mind.

His approach is gentle and focuses on opening up the energy centers in the body with Kundalini Yoga exercises. He has studied with Kundalini master Gurmukh and completed Yogi Bhajan's Kundalini Teacher Training. His classes are invigorating, grounding, intuitive, fun and leave you feeling centered, calm and smiling.

jaRed warrior beach picjaRed has been learning, deepening and sharing his yoga flow practice at Kalani for the past eight years. He first discovered his yoga body through the primary series with Pamela Richardson in the summer of '97. He graduated from Kathy Elder's original yoga teacher training class in 2001 and has since deepened his understanding of teaching vinyasa flow yoga through intensives with Duncan Wong and Shiva Rea.

He has felt honored and inspired by the teachings of Shiva, Kathy, Duncan, Saul David Raye and many others. He continues to hold a sacred space for breath, gratitude, yoga and love in his weekly classes at Kalani Oceanside Retreat.

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.

jaRed has since deepened his understanding of teaching vinyasa flow yoga through intensives with Duncan Wong and Shiva Rea.

About the Facilitator(s)

Lynne took her first yoga class while in college, at the YMCA in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. Her first instructor and mentor, Trudy Davis, encouraged Lynne to teach when she moved to Alaska in 1977. Her students were her main teachers for those first few years and then, something had to be done. Lynne enrolled in the Iyengar Yoga Institute of San Francisco’s Teacher Training Program the summer of 1980. Encouraged by Donald Moyer, she attended her first yoga Intensive at the Ramamani Iyengar Memorial Yoga Institute in Pune, India in 1981. She was certified to teach yoga by BKS Iyengar in 1984. Subsequent trips to Pune followed in 1988 and 1997.

Lynne continues to study and be inspired by teachers of both the Iyengar and Anusara traditions of yoga. Judith Lasater, Donald Moyer, Fr. Joe Pereira, John Friend, Sarahjoy Marsh and Desiree Rumbaugh are influential in her teaching. Lynne founded the Inner Dance Yoga Studio in 1982 and has overseen its growth and development into a thriving center with 20 plus instructors. She trained the majority of the teachers through the Inner Dance Teacher Training program that began in 1999.

Lynne grew up in Wisconsin. Her love of travel and degree in Environmental Geology brought her to play and work in Alaska in 1975. That year she met future husband, Jim, who greatly influenced her decision to make Alaska home. They have been married since 1978. Together they enjoy camping, flying, overseas travel and their wonderful community of family and friends. Lynne also loves to sing, garden, bike and hike.

The ninth, and final rite, was delivered in the summer of 2006 by the Laika Elders in the Holy Mountains of the Andes.

Tending the Feminine Psyche

Carolyn Costin, Elissa Shapiro, Francie White, Anita Johnston

A Professional Workshop & Training for Women Treating Eating Disorders.

Tending the Feminine PsycheThis 6-day/6 night retreat/workshop offers a continuum of incredible didactic teaching balanced with dream-like, soulful and spiritually enriching experiences that are unique only to Kalani-based retreats.

About the Facilitator(s)

Carolyn Costin, M.A.,M.ED., M.F.T. Author of The Eating Disorder Sourcebook & 100 Questions and Answers About Eating Disorders will focus on advanced techniques in therapy sessions that use mindfulness. Her unique use of mindfulness principles sets the clinician free from getting hooked into patients’ stories, sucked into dramas, and caught up in their own agendas. Carolyn will demonstrate firsthand how to remain free from burnout while offering profound recovery opportunities for patients. Bring your difficult cases and your difficult self as Carolyn's demonstration sessions will focus on how, time and time again, you can take the path toward transformative moments in your professional and or personal work. Carolyn will bring us her new version of “Ten things most important to transformative work.”

Anita Johnston, PhD: Author of Eating in the Light of the Moon will teach how to become fluent in storytelling and storylistening, how to use metaphor as an aspect of your own work professionally and personally, and how to find meaning in the life stories you inhabit. Using archetypal psychological principles, expand your own access to inner realms of the deep feminine -- realms outside of linear thinking and three-dimensional space and time – realms which will enrich your own life and your sessions with patients.

Francie White, M.S. R.D. : Mixes practical ideas advancing nutrition therapy with fundamentals about the science of consciousness (PhD candidate in consciousness-studies). As a colleague of Geneen Roth, she will bring key insights from Roth’s new book: Women, Food & God commenting on the role of self-judgment in finding a path to the heart of the sacred. Francie brings life to client-sessions about recovery blocks and how to navigate through them. Prevent burn-out through 5 processes that inspire recovery.

Elissa Shapiro, LCSW: Back by popular demand! Elissa is a licensed therapist, movement and dance facilitator. She becomes the connecting force for all the elements to fuse within the body of each participant. Her work never fails to bring powerful meaning and unity to the group through the elements, rituals and the soul-themes of the workshop.
