Hawai'i Island 'Ukulele Retreat

Multiple Artists

October 21, 2013 - October 26, 2013
Kalani CoastImagine the best of the West Coast 'Ukulele Retreat and Camp Ooo-Koo-Lay-Lay, rolled up together on the beautiful shores of Hawai'i Island. 

About the Facilitator(s)

As always, we have chosen instructors with a proven track record for teaching, engaging their students, AND the ability to present material in a variety of musical genres. (And folks who are just, plain fun!) As we do at the West Coast ‘Ukulele Retreat, we plan to keep the student-to-instructor ratio right around 10 to 1. Here’s who will be there to instruct and inspire you: Sarah Maisel (you can see how excited she is to be making her Hawaiian debut), Peter d’Aquino, Bryan Tolentino, Andy Andrews, and Dave Egan. To offer guest workshops and local insights, we will also be drawing from the significant pool of local Hawai’i Island talent: Keoki Kahumoku, Alan Hale, Kona Bob, Chuck Moore, Ka’ulani Trainor, and more. Naturally, there will be more of an emphasis on Hawaiian music and culture than we have at Asilomar and Camp O, but please note that all other musical genres will be well-represented at the Hawai’i Island ‘Ukulele Retreat.

Big Island Bikram Retreat - awaken what was once lost

Lucas Miles and Cheryl Grivell

May 24, 2014 - May 30, 2014

big island bikram

About the Facilitator(s)

Lucas Miles - Senior Bikram Teacher

Lucas has taught full time for 10 years, owned his own studio in New York city for 4 years, and spent time directly with Bikram, working closely with him and other senior teachers over the course of a dozen Bikrams teacher training programs and a couple of advanced seminars as well. Lucas will go in depth on breath work, philosophy and directional movement in class as well as in the posture clinics. I believe that Bikram yoga is a powerful transformational tool. Transformation does not require anything complex or fancy, exclusive or elite. It is a process that we all have available to ourselves, should we have the courage to utilize powerful tools like Bikram yoga in an honest way. It is my aim to facilitate this process with every student I meet, in whatever way serves that student the most. I am certain that along the way we can have some laughs and enjoy the world around us also!

Cheryl Grivell

Cheryl will bring 10 years teaching experience in Bikram yoga as well as Hawaiian chanting.  Owning a studio and helping to coach yoga competitors of all levels,  she will share with you alignment, connection and expression.  With a open mind we will explore the 84 hatha postures to add to your foundational practice.  Hawaiian chanting has been a passion of hers since she was 18.  Chanting is a great way to build prana, and break though self doubt and expression.  With her guidance and grace you will be able to see your true potential on your mat and in your life.
