Couples in Paradise Retreat

Joyce and Barry Vissell

During these 7 days at Kalani, you will not only open to more love and connection you thought possible, but you will have enough time to integrate these positive changes into your lives back home. We focus on seeing our partner with new eyes, healing dysfunctional patterns, communication of feelings, enhancing the sexual relationship, and practicing loving appreciation. Charley Thweatt’s intuitively chosen songs deepen each process.

About the Facilitator(s)

Marianne Williamson says “Bravo to the Vissells for helping us find the connection between spirituality and relationship.” Ram Dass describes Joyce and Barry Vissell as “a couple who live the yoga of love and devotion.” They are two people deeply in love for 49 years, who have led couples retreats for 35 years, raised three children and “walk their talk.” Their model of relationship and deeply heart-oriented approach have made a unique impact upon many thousands of people’s lives. They are the authors of The Shared Heart, Models of Love, Risk To Be Healed, The Heart’s Wisdom, Meant To Be, and A Mother’s Final Gift. They are the founders and directors of the Shared Heart Foundation (www.sharedheart.org), a non-profit organization dedicated to changing the world one heart at a time. The Vissells write a monthly column on 'living from the heart' that appears in about 80 publications worldwide.

“Special guest musician Charley Thweatt is a multi-talented singer, songwriter, and recording artist who has opened thousands of hearts around the world with his musical gifts. His intuitively chosen songs accelerate soul healing for the couples.”

One week package cost $1,250 per person for double occupancy shared bath and $1390 for double occupancy with private bath. See packet for other housing/cost options;  Two yoga classes daily and three delicious healthy meals daily. 

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 her to teach when she moved to Alaska in 1977.  She 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 founded the Inner Dance Yoga Studio in 1982 in Anchorage, Alaska and oversaw  its growth and development into a thriving center with 20 plus instructors for the next 26 years . She  started the Inner Dance Teacher Training program in 1999 which  trained over 100 yoga teachers in the 8 years of her  oversight of the program.   Lynne sold the Inner Dance Yoga Studio in 2008.   She now travels the country and the world teaching yoga wherever she is invited.

Lynne  draws inspiration from yoga on and off the mat,  attending local classes and  sharing practice with others .  She honors her  teachers of  the Iyengar  tradition, Judith Lasater, Donald Moyer,  and  Fr. Joe Pereira .   Self-Realizaion Fellowship, Paramahansa Yogananda's organization, to which she was first exposed in 1978 is another continuing source of upliftment.   

Yogananda says, "The true purpose of life is to realize one's Self as wisdom and bliss".   Patanjali's yoga sutra book II, sutra 41 (Light on Yoga Sutras, BKS Iyengar translation) states, " When the body is cleansed, the mind purified and the senses controlled, joyful awareness needed to realize the inner Self, also comes."  My mission statement is to help myself and others to awaken joyful awareness through the practices of yoga;   asanas that cleanse the body, pranayama that calms the mind, concentration that controls the senses, and meditation for realizing the Inner Self.

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 , and together they made 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, hula, play her ukelele,  garden, bike and hike. She is in the process of relocating to Prescott, Arizona.

Restore Your Roar: a Re-boot Camp

Amanda Trusty & Olivia Petzy

January 15, 2015 - January 20, 2015

 Face your fears, dance your joy, and fall in love with the skin you’re in.

About the Facilitator(s)

Amanda Trusty is known as “The Roar Girl” for her viral burlesque video that was filmed right here at Kalani. Her popular blog, amandatrustysays.com, raises awareness on emotional eating, body struggles, and the lessons that Hawaiian culture can teach us. Amanda's 24 years of dance training and teaching combined with her personal journey with binge-eating disorder has prepared her to help others cultivate their own roar, and share it with this world that so desperately needs it.

Olivia Petzy used to hide in the bathroom and cry during dance class in college. She ended up in a Shrink Session class, and while she did cry, they were happy tears of freedom. Addicted to the feeling of joy in movement, Olivia knew she had to share this bliss with others. She trained directly with Shrink Session creator Erin Stutland and loves every perfectly imperfect shimmy and shake.
