The Yoga of Permaculture

Kalani is very pleased to host a week dedicated to yoga and permaculture, featuring two talented and knowledgeable instructors, Chris Miller and Eric Ellenwood.

During this retreat, Chris and Eric will guide you in an experience of interconnection between Samkhya-Yoga philosophy and permaculture principles, introducing the concept of reintegrating mind, body, nature and tribe.

Chris MillerChris Miller is devoted to the study of yoga philosophy, Sanskrit, and the relationship between spirituality, religion and ecology.

A graduate of Loyola Marymount University with a degree in Comparative Theology, Chris received his training in yoga philosophy in Santa Monica at the Hill Street Yoga and Meditation Center.

Chris has also spent time studying Jain philosophy in India where he became affiliated with Surfing Yogis, a conscious group of surfers who aim to inspire and transform the ecological and social landscape of yoga's motherland.

Eric EllenwoodEric Ellenwood is Kalani's Permaculture Design Specialist, responsible for the development of sustainable agriculture, aquaculture, and agro-forestry on Kalani campus. In this role, Eric teaches regular classes, and works with volunteers and guests to better understand the principles of permaculture and their application to sustainable food.

Eric comes to Kalani with a diverse background, incorporating permaculture design, engineering skills, fabrication abilities, primitive skills, and a deep connection and observation of life and interconnection in nature. After leaving a career in the private jet industry, Eric founded a permaculture community in Nebraska, before transitioning to the hotbed of permaculture here in Hawaii.

`Ohana Yoga Retreat 2013

Gena Kenny & Kent Cuthbert

August 23, 2013 - August 30, 2013

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
