Practical Yoga: Cultivating Inner Strength and Radiance

William (Bill) Donnelly

May 6, 2012 - May 11, 2012

Christmas Holiday Retreat

Come experience the stunning Hawaiian spring for this special yoga retreat, celebrating and honoring ourselves and our spirits through this magical and awakening time of year. Each day will feature two sessions of practical yoga and meditation in one of the most stunning environments you could imagine, surrounded by fiery lava, invigorating ocean, tropical foliage, and people celebrating the spirit of aloha.

Christmas Yoga HolidayOur retreat will combine the physical benefits of hatha yoga with the ancient and powerful technology of kundalini yoga & meditation (as originally taught by Yogi Bhajan.) This combination is a potent way to consciously cultivate inner strength, compassion and self-awareness.

Our retreat is designed to help you tap into your inner radiance, reach your full creative potential, and head home with tools which will assist you in living a happy, healthy, more spirited life. Practical tools and techniques for beginning, or continuing, a mediation practice will be also be provided.

In addition to our yoga sessions, we have also planned adventures to the most potent and  inspiring sites in the region:  Volcanoes National Park, the Kapoho Tide Pools, and Kehena Black Sand Beach, where dolphins often come to swim and play. 

There will be plenty of free time for relaxation, or to engage with Kalani's vibrant Hawaiian culture programs, classes, and events. Connect with others in family style meals on the open air dining lanai, enjoying the healthy, local, mostly organic food that Kalani is famous for. 

Join us over this special week, as you relax and enjoy all that Hawaii has to offer - and set yourself on a vibrant course.

All levels of yoga practice, including beginners, are welcome. Yoga mats, props and blankets are all provided.
