For owner Nicole Robinson and the instructors at The Roof, yoga classes are about connecting with students in both the physical and spiritual sense. To encourage these connections, Nicole and her team lead sessions seven days a week from within the 2,300-square-foot Kailua Town studio, a sister studio to Hot Yoga by the Sea. Here, students of all levels improve their minds for meditation and body for flexibility during a variety of physical practice from Rock the Roof Flow to Twilight Vinyasa to Rooftop Restore. As muscles strengthen, minds can seek out inner peace on the spacious rooftop patio where twinkling string lights and panoramic views of Hamakua Marsh intermingle with the stars above and an occasional full moon during twilight yoga sessions.
To further encourage clients' search for calm, Nicole and company provide regular meditation workshops and yoga retreats as well onsite childcare services. The latter service, dubbed Yoga Playtime, provides a safe space for kids 1 year to 6 years to practice yoga and learn as parents participate in yoga classes or hide from their kids in a bathroom stall.
Paradise Rent-A-Car’s staff of easy-riding cycle renters maintains a stable of gleaming Harleys and other combustion-driven bikes, as well as a variety of four-wheeled vehicles, for drivers 18 and older. They invite roadsters to feel the muscular thrum of rubber on pavement in the cozy saddle of the Harley-Davidson Fat Boy, or to hurtle past sluggish vans and tortoise-drawn SUVs in a nimble Suzuki GSXR 750. To ensure the safety of the riders, they outfit customers with free helmets to protect brain domes during the rental. In addition to bikes, they also rent snorkeling gear and boogie boards for those hoping to ride chrome steeds to the nearest beach or public fountain.
For more than 30 years, VIP Transportation's professional drivers have showcased Honolulu's scenic and historical sites from behind the tinted windows of their vans, mini coaches, and charter buses. In addition to manning the steering wheel, they also dish out tidbits during tours of Pearl Harbor, Honolulu, and the island's scenic escapes. The 24/7 airport shuttles give visitors a cozy welcome and send off, and VIP Transportation’s fleet carts clients to an array of events that demand extra space, such as large weddings, graduations, or transplant ceremonies for the actual family tree.
Hawaiian Style Rentals mobilizes island sightseers with zippy two-wheeled transporters and expert-guided tours. Fully automatic standard mopeds pack 49 cubic centimeters of power that can propel riders to speeds of up to 40 mph?nearly the same speed of a saddled Road Runner. Following a brief lesson, riders embark with locks and helmets as they explore a complimentary map?s worth of suggested routes, including sojourns past Diamond Head Crater and the North Shore.
Aloha Activities equips adventurers with the tools needed to cruise Oahu in style. Over the course of 24 hours, speed racers perch on a 50cc Daelim moped and scoot past swaying palms, crashing azure waves, and people crushed by the realization that they don't have a moped. The two-wheeler's 1-gallon tank should last for about 70 miles, and a complimentary lock and chain allow ample freedom to make pit stops and take advantage of photo ops at leisure. For an additional fee, customers can join a guided tour to visit volcanic formations, look at waterfalls, and get a rare glimpse of the world-famous ocean.
