7 Day Spirit of Aloha: Yoga Retreat in Kalani, Hawaii - March 2018

About us

Yes, you are worthy of love…. Are you ready to let go of all that is preventing you from stepping in to your fullest and most radiant self. By the end of this retreat, you will feel loved, whole, and ready to come back to your daily life renewed.  Reclaim your Aloha “your joyful spirit, your true connection

What if anything is possible? What if all of the constructs, the defences, the stories we tell our self that we are not good enough were all an illusion?  What if you are deeply connected to everything and therefore You are infinite beyond your wildest dreams.  What if all of your true desires and dreams could come true.  What if your dreams are the gifts that are needed in the world right now.

Recently, I posted on a group that I belong to… I shared my deepest vulnerabilities and then shared my biggest dreams that I would like to see happen.  One beautiful and courageous soul wrote me and said that from the way I expressed myself, she thought my dreams had already happened.  She had belief in my dreams. Why not?  In fact, she thought they were already a reality. When I really examined that, although I was sharing my BiG dreams, deep down I didn’t believe they could really happen for me.

In our Retreat, The Spirit of Aloha: Yoga Retreat Hawaii, March 4-10, 2017, we will retreat and embrace nature and ourselves in order to Renew our energy.  We will tap into the deeper rising of our BIG Dreams to bring them forth into reality. It is my hope that renewing, nourishing and loving yourself the Aloha way by joining us on Retreat in Hawaii is one of your BIG Dreams.

“Drea is the reason that I finally stuck with yoga, she is a patient, clear, communicative, hands-on teacher. She instills confidence in you while still pushing you. I appreciate the humor and lightness she brings to her classes; it helps to get through the more challenging poses. I always look forward to her classes and always leave feeling energized.”

Imagine yourself being called to dinner by the ancient sound of the conch shell.  You are reminded of your deep belonging and the daily rhythms of ancestral village life and the rich cultural heritage of the mystical Hawaiian land that we will be fully experiencing. Kalani’s outdoor dining lanai is its central gathering place, where we eat our meals and is often referred to as the “heart” of the centre.

The abundance of Hawaii is celebrated by serving local tropical fruits and vegetables which inspire the chefs to create delicious and healthful meals. The chefs also believe in preparing each meal with Aloha and invest care and love into the cuisine.

One of the many blessings is the meals which are always fresh and inventive. The salad spread is incredible along with the amazing homemade salad dressings. As one past guest says “When I think of Retreats at Kalani, I immediately taste the food, smell the desserts and kiss the sky! The Kalani way of eating – healthy, abundant, creative, green, local, nothing wasted and cooked up with love. Wow, what a treat! Yum imagine yourself sitting down to freshly caught “grilled balsamic-marinated ahi with smoked tomato & dill vinaigrette, or mushroom-stuffed tofu with pineapple teriyaki sauce, smashed potato and parsnips, green beans with roasted red peppers, jicama and sweet potato salad fresh salad bar with house-made dressings and for dessert fresh Hawaiian mango and macadamia nut crisp.

“Drea does a wonderful job of leading and holding space for people to truly get in touch with themselves”

We will be spending six luscious nights at Kalani on the Big Island. As your senses immerse into the relaxing sounds of the jungle all your worries fade away. Or you can relax by the pool, or sip a cool refreshing drink from the luxury of your hammock. Time to unwind and be part of all the natural beauty around you.You let all your stresses go as you rest in your beautiful room with large screened walls giving you the sensation that you are outside with all the comforts of home. Soft light filters down on you as you gaze out – you can see for miles. The soft breeze caresses you to sleep. The natural construction of bamboo makes this a place where you can really unplug and let go.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

My inspiration is a desire to gain a deeper connection to and understanding of myself, something that I've been working hard on for so long and will continue to do in the future. I view a retreat as a wonderful way to focus entirely on this without the distractions of every day life! Nicola

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
