Tranquil Yoga Retreat in Hawaiian Jungle Overlooking Pacific
Those who believe in the Hawaiian concept of ‘ohana, meaning "extended family," foster a respect for diversity and aspire toward unity. ‘Ohana is found everywhere at Kalani, a nonprofit retreat center located on 120 acres of tropical rainforest on Hawaii’s Big Island.
During this four-night stay for two at Kalani, you’ll get to take one daily yoga class at no extra charge. Kalani’s talented instructors draw on decades of yoga experience, including time spent with eminent yogis around the world. They share a passion for the retreat’s inclusive ethos, welcoming participants of all backgrounds and experience levels.
Between asana poses, you can sample delicious Hawaiian, Thai, and Indian cuisine made with local produce and fresh seafood. Guests can take advantage of the resort’s many relaxing facilities, which include a heated saltwater Watsu pool, 120 acres of rainforest trails, and a 25-meter lap pool.
After admiring the starry sky, retreat to your room in a comfortable hale (pronounced ha-lay)—an eco-friendly, two-level dwelling that lacks TVs, phones, and air conditioning but makes up for it with crisp sea breezes and ocean views.
