Hawaii Bliss - A Rejuvenation Yoga Retreat

jaRed Sam, Dennis Dehler, Timothy Schirmang

February 18, 2017 - February 23, 2017

We are excited to invite you to join us in Hawaii during the new moon for inspiring yoga, island-style relaxation, local adventures and energetic rejuvenation.

We'll offer two yoga practices each day: a Kundalini Yoga class and a Vinyasa Flow class. Afternoons will include excursions, beach time, pool relaxation, massages and a hike along majestic ocean cliffs. In the evenings, we'll dine on Kalani's open air lanai with fresh fish, organic vegetables, chicken and scrumptious desserts. Delicious vegan and vegetarian options are also offered at every meal. After dinner we'll stargaze and relax in Kalani's hot tubs.
Monday night we'll have a bonfire as we ascend into higher levels of awareness and love.

This retreat includes a complimentary massage for the first twelve participants registered.

Dennis Dehler

Kundalini Yoga is known as the yoga of awareness. It involves exercises to open the 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.    

Dennis completed "The Master's Touch" Kundalini teacher training in 2005 with Gurmukh. He also completed Don and Amba Stapleton's Interdisciplinary Yoga Teacher Training in 2001. He currently enjoys the teachings of Lynne Minton. 

Timothy Schirmang 

Passionate and inquisitive about the offerings that come with living an inspired life, Tim embodies an energy that utilizes and reveals the gifts that come from the world around us.  He is an avid surfer, photographer, world traveler, dancer and aspiring yogi.  Throughout his travels he has been drawn to areas of the world that inspire a deep connection to the spirit of the land, ocean and community, from the Hawaiian islands, Big Sur California, to where he currently resides on Cape Cod, Massachusetts.  His experiences have revealed the opportunities for healing and self empowerment that are available to everyone.  He is grateful to share and give back to the community and to encourage one another to thrive through their own practices and embody whatever is it that will evoke a mindful, lighthearted and joyful life experience.
