This retreat will be held in Puna District, Hawaii, USA. Kirpal Meditation and Ecological Center (KMEC) is located in Pahoa. Being located a half mile from the beach, this ocean view sanctuary has access to swimming, fresh fruits, snorkeling and soaking in the famous thermal warm ponds. This spacious and open 11-acre property is surrounded by a buffer of jungle and features more than 150 trees with 30 or so kinds of tropical fruit. You can taste the freshest fruit possible whenever they are ripe!

Isaac Kepo’okalani Hale Park is only a half mile away, one of the few safe places for swimming on the rugged, extremely scenic, coast. A body-temperature warm-pond park is just a half mile further, as well as excellent snorkeling in the wave-protected Kapoho Tide Pools with dozens of corals, and thousands of brightly colored fish.

The nearly constant lava-flow area is just a half hour to the west. It is perfect for a sunset or sunrise, and hiking where you’ll often see a cascade of red-hot lava plunging 50 or 60 feet into the ocean boiling below. A shopping area, a food market, and delicious restaurants are 10 minutes away in Pahoa Town. Several large farmer markets operate on the weekends too.

    "Thanks to Cat, my overall physical condition has improved dramatically. I bend lower, stretch further, balance better, and stand taller. She has a wonderful, people-oriented teaching style coupled with a soothing demeanor and calming personality."

    "I started yoga because for the last 4-5 years I have suffered from tremendously horrible headaches and have been through every imaginable medication and treatment. Since I start my yoga practice I have been feeling better, and I believe a lot of that has been directly related to the way you teach."

    "Catherine taught me that yoga is not just what you practice on the mat but off the mat as well, and that how you treat yourself on the mat is a good indication of how you treat yourself off the mat. With her help, I have become much more focused on my breathing (off the mat) and being in the present."
