Yoga + Writing = Hawaiian Dream Retreat
March 26 - April 2
8 Days of Bliss in a luxurious Hawaiian Retreat Center! Indulge yourself with a few of our favorite things: yoga, writing, delicious food and spa time! Restore from the rigors and stress of daily life in this deeply rejuvenating wellness retreat. Throughout the week, you will discover the balance between grounding and enlightening, doing and undoing, relaxing and energizing, and centering and expanding. You will use meditation, essential breath work, adaptive pose variations, creative writing lessons, and indiscriminate curiosity to experience your natural state of peace.
Each day will begin with 2 hours of yoga and yogic breathing taught by urban mystic Sweta Saraogi.
Sweta incorporates yogic mythological storytelling that will transport you to times of yore when gods co-habited with humans, divine voices could be heard and visions seen.
Whether you’re a seasoned yogi or a complete beginner, Sweta will meet you at your level and customize a practice best suited to your needs. Let this session help you add a new dimension to your practice, understanding, and love for yoga.
In the evening, poet, children’s book author and award winning journalist Reagan Jackson will guide you in a writing workshop that will get your creative juices flowing. You’ll have the opportunity to play with different forms and discover your voice.
In between workshops there will be time to avail yourself of the spa, participate in cultural ceremonies, or just hang out with cool people. Hawaii Island Retreat is located near the small country village of Hawi, in the historic district of North Kohala on Hawaii’s Big Island.
