About This Center
Lolia Eco Village is part of a 25 acre, off-grid, solar powered retreat centre on the south coast of the Big Island with a warm and sunny climate and with lush vegetation and magical beaches. It believes in creating an ideal environment for a truly transformational experience, while providing an affordable and eco-minded opportunity for yoga teacher trainings, meditation retreats, permaculture camps, dance festivals, tantra courses, and more.
Lolia Eco Village was founded in 2012 by Robert Silber, who also founded the Institute for Conscious Sensuality and has taught and led retreats with many of the world leading sacred, sexuality teachers. In line with Robert's values, the property is built on the principles of sustainability, community and living together in harmony with the Earth.
