You know you deserve a break from your daily schedule and commitments. Why not spend a week of Yoga on the beautiful island of Maui and feel renewed, refreshed and rejuvenated?
Allow your senses to be heightened by the surrounding aromatic botanical gardens containing over 1000 medicinal plants. Your body will feel toned, stretched, relaxed and lighter after your week with the owner, Andrea. Executive Chef—Michelle DeLand—will prepare delicious and detoxifying meals all the while sharing her wealth of knowledge and industry experience with you.
Relax in the award winning spa, bathe in the outdoor pool, meditate in the open air yoga studio, take a walk through the surrounding countryside or pay a visit to the local town with its art galleries. Snorkelling, reading, and relaxing are just a few of the activities you can partake in during your Yoga retreat stay.
You will also have the chance to participate in distillation demonstrations: learn about aromatic plants and their healing properties.
This small exclusive retreat is your perfect getaway. Feel the warmth of the Hawaiian sun and breathe in the fresh North Pacific Ocean air this winter!
Situated inland on the second largest island in the Hawaiian archipelago, this Yoga Retreat is located in Upcountry Maui with sweeping open landscape and ocean views.
Rolling hills and misty mountains unfold as cool breezes carry the scent of eucalyptus throughout this area. Located on the high elevations around Haleakala—the east Maui volcano—the fertile slopes of Upcountry are home to ranches, farms and botanical gardens with soaring views.
There are three homes on the Yoga Retreat with private grounds which are open for you to explore. The Main Villa being the largest can accommodate up to 8 guests. The Private Villa and Private Cottage both accommodate two couples and are a romantic abode.
Each morning and evening we will practice meditation and yoga in the Main Villa’s open air studio. You’ll experience a magical, unspoiled relaxing yoga retreat and holiday of a lifetime.
Yoga and Meditation
Wake up to the sounds and smells of the North Pacific flora & fauna whilst practicing your daily routine. Breathe in the fresh air during your morning yoga asana and pranayama (yogic breathing) class. Whether you are an experienced yoga practitioner or blossoming into practice, you will learn to move with awareness, strength and balance. Your two daily yoga asana classes will be catered to your specific body needs. As the week progresses, we will build from a foundation geared towards taking yoga home. Your knowledge will deepen during our daily yoga discussions on methodology, history and alignment.
The goal is to help you let go of the past, be present in the Now and, most of all, ATTAIN HAPPINESS!
Food and Nutrition
Be inspired by Executive Chef and owner of Extraordinary Foods Michelle DeLand.
She will lead you through a culinary week filled with new dishes and inspiration you can take home. Michelle was one of the first chefs in Canada to work directly with farmers, bringing back the farm-to-table approach to restaurants. She now works with one of the most high-profile families in Canada as their personal and event chef.
Each meal will be an array of delicious fresh and, mostly local, cuisine with an emphasis on detoxifying the body. This is your chance to closely observe a professional chef and her creations.
The meals on this retreat are completely vegetarian and vegan adaptable (upon request).
Additional Activities on the Island
Your yoga Retreat is an 8-minute drive from the town of Makawao—with its charming galleries, delicious restaurants, and unique boutiques. We are 35-minutes from the south shore beaches, 20-minutes from Paia and Baldwin beaches, and an hour to historic Lahaina Town. The top of the volcanic crater is under 2-hours, as is the drive to the district of Hana.
For the more adventurous, activities offered in Maui include zip-lining, snorkelling, scuba-diving, surfing, horse-back rides, fishing, hiking, helicopter rides, whale watching tours, and more. When booking, day trips can be arranged for an additional charge.
