On Friday night, we'll have a bonfire under the stars.We are excited to invite you to join us in Hawaii for inspiring yoga, island style relaxation, local adventures, and energetic rejuvenation.
This retreat includes a complimentary massage for the first 12 guests to register.
During our journey, we'll experience the tranquility, warmth, and beauty of Hawaii with an excursion to our local clothing-optional black sand beach and another island-style adventure. We’ll also enjoy beach yoga and Uncle Robert's night market for food, music, and gifts.
Lava tours are an option (depending on the flow) but are not included in this retreat. They must be booked and paid for by the guest directly with tour companies.
And, of course, there is always the option to relax at Kalani and enjoy the pool, hot tubs, massages, choice of 3 hammocks and free Hawaiian Heritage classes like hula, lei making, and lauhala weaving.
All meals are complimentary buffet style and we'll be dining on Kalani's open air lanai. Meals include organic Kalani grown vegetables, greens and fruits along with fresh fish, organic chicken, and locally grown organic salads. Meals will have vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options with delicious dinner desserts.
Last year we filled up and we are expecting to do so again this year. Be one of the initial 12 to join to receive a comp massage. Feel free to arrive a day early or stay later and Kalani will extend the group rate which includes meals.

Getting to practice with these three guys just makes it all the more special.” Clint, Cape Cod

Kundalini Yoga is known as the yoga of awareness. It involves exercises to open the energy centers of the body (chakras) while strengthening the central nervous system and stimulating the internal organs and glands. It is both relaxing and invigorating, and you will leave class with an open heart and a smile.
