Gentle Yoga on the Big Island | November 7, 2017 - November 14, 2017

Gentle Yoga on the Big Island
Devorah's retreat is both rejuvenating and deeply relaxing. With a background in Iyengar yoga, she is skilled at teaching modifications to help students of all levels and abilities.
Her morning class is a well-balanced blend of strengthening, stretching and relaxing, and her evening restorative class explores breath work, meditation, and deep relaxation.

Enjoy a relaxing seven day Yoga Vacation at Kalani Oceanside Retreat Center on the Big Island of Hawaii with three hours of yoga and three delicious meals each day.

This gentle retreat combines strengthening, stretching and relaxing with careful attention to proper alignment. Students are taught to listen to their bodies and modify poses according to their individual needs. The classes are lighthearted and fun. The first part of each day's yoga focuses on developing a well-rounded practice, while the second part explores gentle stretches and restorative poses for deep relaxation.

In addition to yoga, there is time each day to relax by the pool, enjoy a beautiful black sand beach, soak in thermal warm ponds, go snorkeling or visit the nearby volcano or botanical gardens. There is also a lovely short walk to a point where you can watch the sunrise over the ocean.

All levels of students will benefit from this retreat and will leave feeling relaxed and rejuvenated.

Devorah Blum
Devorah Blum began to study yoga in 1975, becoming a dedicated student of Iyengar Yoga at an early age. She learned from senior Iyengar teachers and spent time in India in 1985 where she studied with BKS Iyengar, Gita Iyengar and Prashant Iyengar. She also completed two “Relax & Renew” trainings with Judith Lasater where she learned to teach restorative yoga. Devorah has been teaching yoga since 1986. She has owned and directed Yoga Studio Ganesha in northern California since 2000. Devorah’s depth of understanding of the postures along with her attentiveness, compassion, and sensitive guidance allow her to inspire and nurture each student. In her fun, gentle class, she teaches healthy ways to stretch, strengthen, balance, and open in the poses. Her soothing voice and use of restorative yoga helps students to finish class feeling deeply relaxed.
