Holiday Yoga Retreat
Hawaii Transformation Bliss

Hawaii Holiday Yoga Retreat
Join us over the 2106 holiday period for this truly unique and popular yoga retreat, now in its sixth year, celebrating and honoring ourselves and our spirits through the winter solstice and Christmas. Described as "truly transformative and nurturing", this approachable workshop has been designed to help you tap into your inner radiance, reach your full creative potential, and head home with tools which will assist you in living a happier, healthier, more spirited life. Practical tools and techniques for beginning, or continuing, a meditation practice are part of this retreat. Be sure to read the testimonials on our website. 
Get ready to sweat, laugh and uplift your spirit, as each day features two sessions of Will's signature Practical Yoga & Meditation in one of the most stunning environments you could imagine, surrounded by fiery lava, invigorating ocean, tropical foliage, and people celebrating the spirit of aloha. 
We have also planned adventures to the most potent and inspiring sites in the region: Volcanoes National Park at Night to view the stunning volcano cauldera; and a morning yoga sunrise session at the ocean (weather permitting). 
In addition to our yoga sessions and adventures, there are special sacred ceremonies planned to allow you go to deeper into transformation. The schedule also offers you opportunities to take in the gorgeous sights and activities nearby including black sand beaches, hot springs, lava hikes, lava tube exploration, waterfalls, turtle nesting areas, snorkeling and much more!
There will be scheduled free time for relaxation, or to engage with Kalani's vibrant Hawaiian culture programs, classes, and events (either by donation or nominal charge). You will connect with others on the open air dining lanai, while enjoying three delicious and abundant chef created meals per day. Vegan, Vegetarian and gluten-free options are always available.
About Practical Yoga: It's simple - it's Will's elegant and fun combination of both the more ubiquitous hatha/vinyasa flow yoga and the ancient with the powerful (and less familiar) white tantric technology of Kundalini Yoga & Meditation. This potent combination is a practical way to consciously cultivate inner strength, self-awareness, and radiance. You will tone your abs while you lift your spirits!
Join us over this treasured week, as you relax and enjoy all that Hawaii has to offer - and set your life on a vibrant course. All ages & levels of yoga practice, including beginners, welcomed. Yoga mats, props and blankets are all provided.

A Vision Changes Everything
How to Conquer Money, Health and Love

Vision Quest Hawaii
It sounds like fun stepping into clear warm ponds on a tropical oceanfront, footsteps from your bedroom. Maybe you are asking yourself, if I want to go to Hawaii for the New Year, why would I want to be in a Vision Quest?
So, let me ask you, what holds you back? Not enough love, money or health in your life? Do you want to know why not? Then fix it? How long have you held back? Is it time for you to rekindle your passion?
Are you headed for trouble if you don't reinvent and reset soon? Are you coping with a difficult situation and stuck? Did you somehow set aside the person you wanted to be when you grew up?
The answers you seek can be found at a Sacred Vision Quest. Rewrite the script of what you think and feel about yourself and find the answers that will naturally reshape your future.
Vision quests have been used for centuries to guide people to find the answers to complex questions deep inside themselves. Once you learn this, you never forget.
Imagine what you could accomplish with the right vision? Take advantage of expert guides to support you to feel a new way. Envision your prosperous life upgrade.
We only have 5 bedrooms left to fill so now is your moment of power to register. Call to book a 50 minute complimentary phone call and strategy session to decide if this Vision Quest is right for you.

Horses Make Your Soul Light
Tired of Counseling or Therapy?

Horse Therapy Retreat
Try a horse retreat to heal your soul.

Merge your soul with a horse and feel your anxieties melt away. He invites you to throw your leg over his back, grab a handful of mane and pull yourself up on him. You grab 2 handfuls of his thick mane and he takes off. Your hair flies behind you just as his tail flies. No words are necessary; you two can communicate without words. You feel healed, your soul is light. Joy. Peace. Happiness.
