Body and Movement— Wellness begins with movement, time in nature, fresh air and beauty.
You are welcome to as many or as few of these sessions as you desire. We encourage you to plan on movement at least every other day during your retreat, whether on your own or guided by our expert practitioners.
Our sessions generally run between $195-350 a session depending on topic, length of time and the practitioner.
Morning Beach Walk
A practitioner-guided walk along one of Maui’s most beautiful beaches! A beautiful way to get oriented to Maui and your retreat, while greeting the day and being caressed by the soft saltwater breezes of Maui’s beautiful North Shore. Time for self-guided walks on your own can also be added to your itinerary.
Adventure in Awareness
Guided nature experiences and beach walks, combined with spiritual awareness. Nature is an amazing teacher. As a practitioner guided hike, available for any fitness level, this session will take you on a journey through the beautiful and varied rain forest of Maui. But perhaps more importantly, you will be guided to heighten your awareness of your own senses, and discover the depth of the present moment—something you can access anytime, anywhere.
Tune into your breath and bodily awareness as you are guided through the ancient healing poses of yoga. Whether you’ve practiced for 30 years or never done yoga in your life, and whether you are seeking a challenge or prefer a gentle restorative session, classes are tailored to suit your individual needs. The use of props, adjustments and modifications of poses are incorporated as needed to optimize your experience of yoga, or complete union with your highest Self. We specialize in private yoga sessions where you get personalized assistance with your specific needs, however, if you prefer a group class we can assist you in finding the perfect one to attend.
Our bodies create holding patterns due to stress, trauma, hidden emotions, and/or unconscious habits. Transformative yoga is an opportunity to notice where we have pain, blockages and tension, while receiving the support needed to move toward an optimally functioning body, a harmonious mind, and a greater spiritual connection. This one-on-one session can accommodate anyone at any level of yoga practice using props and modifications as needed. When approached in this safe, intentional way, yoga is a powerful path to healing through self-awareness, conscious breathing and emotional release.
Turtle Longevity QiGong
Qi Gong translates to “energy work” or “energy exercise.” It is closely related to the concept and practice of Tai Chi which means a balance of opposites. Whereas Tai Chi often has an external, martial application, qi gong has an internal, medical focus bringing harmony and balance to the body, mind and soul. In Chinese traditions, nature is always observed because our external landscape can teach us a great deal about our internal one. What’s going on “out there” is a macrocosm of what’s going on “in here.” So many forms include animal mimicry, and engaging with the energy of the cosmos and the earth using simple movements, visualizations and contemplations.
