Practical Yoga Experience: Cultivate Strength & Radiance
March 2-8, 2017 @ Kalani
Will Donnelly, facilitator
Are you ready to set your life on a vibrant course? Join us for this truly unique and popular yoga retreat, described as "truly transformative and nurturing.” This approachable workshop has been designed to help everyday people like you tap into your inner radiance, reach your full creative potential, and head home with a vision which will assist you in living a happier, healthier, more spirited life.
Will’s retreats are always popular and welcoming, with many students of varied backgrounds & body types returning again and again. The Practical Yoga retreat week experience is a great investment for your body & spirit. It is enriching & valuable for yoga teachers, yoga students, as well as those who are yoga-curious. It is a powerful, healing retreat that will give you direct experiences which will help you get fit and transform in the direction of your highest vision. Practical tools and techniques for beginning, or continuing, a meditation practice are part of this retreat.
Get ready to sweat, laugh and uplift your spirit, as each day features one-to-two sessions of Will’s signature (& fun) Practical Yoga & Meditation in one of the most stunning environments you could imagine, surrounded by fiery lava, invigorating ocean, tropical foliage, and people celebrating the spirit of aloha.
We have planned adventures to the most potent and inspiring sites in the region: Volcanoes National Park at Night to view the stunning glowing volcano cauldera; and an early morning gentle yoga & meditation-for-expansion gathering at the ocean (weather permitting). Other activities are in the works, pending facilitator availability.
In addition to yoga and adventures, there are special sacred ceremonies planned to allow you go to deeper into transformation, including a sacred offering to Pele (Hawaiian symbolic Goddess of destruction and rebirth).
The schedule also offers you opportunities to take in the gorgeous sights and activities nearby including black sand beaches, hot springs, lava hikes, lava tube exploration, waterfalls, turtle nesting areas, snorkeling, volcanic flow into the ocean (when flowing) and much more!
You will be gifted a free journal at our opening ceremony to encourage you to process all that you are experiencing. There will be scheduled free time for relaxation or to engage with Kalani's vibrant Hawaiian culture programs, classes, and events (either by donation or a nominal charge). You will connect with others on the open air dining lanai while enjoying three delicious and abundant chef-created meals per day (included). Vegan, Vegetarian and gluten-free options are always available. If you have special needs, please contact the retreats department well before your arrival.
About Practical Yoga
Practical Yoga is simple: it’s Will’s signature combination of both the more common Hatha/vinyasa flow yoga with the ancient powerful white tantric technology (for the spirit) of Kundalini Yoga & Meditation (as originally taught by Yogi Bhajan.) This potent combination is a practical way to consciously cultivate physical strength, spiritual fortitude, and energetic radiance. You will tone your abs while you lift your spirits!
Join us over this treasured week, as you relax and enjoy all that Hawaii has to offer - and set your life on a vibrant course. All levels of yoga practice, including beginners, are welcome. Yoga mats, props, and blankets are all provided.
