Our days will be spent hiking through native forest, swimming in waterfalls, snorkeling tropical reefs, lounging on secluded beaches, witnessing an active volcano, soaking in hot springs, and more!  In the evenings there will be plenty of time to relax in Kalani’s clothing-optional sauna, hot tub, and pool area.

Richard Koob

From growing up as a corn-fed Minnesota boy in a loving family of eight, I moved on to Hawaii in 1973. 

Richard Koob

That is, after a few years in Germany (college and travel), New York (art studies, civil rights work and the beginnings of my dance career), and France (dancing, mostly modern).

In Hawaii I continued performing, reaching out to communities and schools with programs celebrating cultural diversity. I also taught movement in the schools, continued programs that liberate men (from socialized limitations to creativity, community and intimacy), and instructed modern dance at the University of Hawaii campuses in Hilo and Honolulu, where I received a Master of Fine Arts degree. Beyond dance, which has matured into a continuing love for hula, I also enjoy the visual arts, particularly figure drawing, painting and architecture. Sport passions include volleyball, bicycling and swimming. Our Puna area offers lots of splash fun including dolphin play, snorkeling in coral castles, body surfing, and sensuous waterfalls -- all of which are included in Kalani adventures I often help lead.
