Join us for five extraordinary and “supernormal” days of transformation. Yoga and Art is 4 All People.
YogART is a new and integrative five-fold process, created by Ceylan Hulya MA and Lisa Rasmussen MFA, which includes yoga, stream of consciousness mark-making, creative visualization, transformative art-making and dialogue. The fusion of all five allows creativity to flow abundantly; opening life to infinite possibilities.
Our Retreats honor and foster the intrinsic and empowering creative source within us all. We openly encourage courageous self-exploration through direct experience and reflection. The ultimate intention of our Retreats is to reveal that Art and its amazing process is everyone’s birthright. When activated, Art has the ability to transform our lives as well as the potential to transform the world we live in.
Kalani Oceanside Retreat is the ultimate destination for restoration, relaxation and renewal. In addition to our daily transformative experiences, connect with the mystical land and sea, enjoy the pool, hot tubs and sauna. Get a massage. Enjoy three healthy and abundant meals every day on the open air dining lanai.
Students of all levels of art and yoga practice, including beginners are encouraged and welcome. It doesn’t matter if you’ve never picked up a paintbrush or never unrolled a yoga mat: art and yoga are for ALL people!

“YogART is an amazing retreat of mind, body, and spirit. A beautiful way to connect within and also reach out ~to be lifted out of  oneself and to see things in a new way. This (Art 4 All People) is a “home” of transformation and I believe that if we all connect with who we really are we can change the world. Thank you YogART!” Cathy Salser  (Founder and Executive Director of Window Between the Worlds)
