Is it time to pause, unplug and reconnect to your heart? Re-energize your mind, body, and spirit in Molokai, a soulful island in the heart of Hawaii. Give yourself time in this natural paradise to reconnect, stretch and unwind in new, transformative, and restorative ways. Support your body, mind, and spirit while being held in an environment of relaxation and nourishment. Through yoga, meditation, personal growth, and heart-centered reflective practices, you will be invited to let go and connect deeply as you immerse yourself in a natural and soulful environment.
Guests can look forward to an experience that is simple and close to the earth at the Hui Ho'olana. Rooms in both the lodge and cabins are non-smoking and may be shared. Couples will have their own rooms.
The workshop will be hosted at the Hui Hoolana Retreat Center, a non-profit, tax exempt organization on the island of Moloka'i, Hawaii. Through workshops and volunteer residencies, their mission is to create a self-sustaining facility that supports educational programs and provides an environment for inspiration. A safe haven for the growth and nurturing of the creative spirit.
There are some magical parts of Hawaii, a place sometimes referred to as the heart chakra of the world. The island of Moloka'i is often experienced as the heart of Hawaii, both geographically and spiritually. Moloka'i has been the training ground of the Hawaiian Shamans and has been referred to as Mother Molokai because of the strong feminine and embracing energy it holds. The Hui Hoolana retreat center is nestled into the heart of Moloka'i, a heart that is deeply felt and experienced by those who choose to visit.
You will be guided through yoga practices that support a gentle and deepening connection to your own sense of inner knowing and wisdom of the body. Experience a sense of self-compassion, connection, fun, and adventure through daily yoga practices infused with mindfully designed conversations and experiences intended to bring awareness to the unique weaving of the heart, mind, and body in a beautiful, down to earth setting.

Turn left at the T-intersection onto Highway 460 towards Kaunakakai.
Then left again onto the Kalae Higway 470 towards Kualapu'u.
Drive three miles north, uphill, and turn right at the three mile marker.
Press the yellow button on the pole before the gate and enter.
After dropping your luggage, park above the Lodge at the end of the private drive on the left, between the trees.
Please do not keep your car in the turnaround in front of the lodge.
Please book your flight to arrive at Honolulu International Airport (HNL).
After that, you need to book an inter-island flight to Molokai. From Molokai Airport, Embody Life Yoga can arrange an airport transfer to the retreat center at an additional charge.
From 2 p.m.
If you are interested in visiting a beach or exploring the island, a rental car is recommended. The island of Moloka'i is in a rural setting and the Hui Hoolana is located on a hillside near the center of the island. There are many beaches and points of interest on Moloka'i but almost none within walking distance of the Hui.
As you are packing for your trip to Molokai, be sure to go online to check the weather forecast. Please note that the Hui is located up on a hill near the lower edge of the rainforest, and is therefore a bit wetter and several degrees cooler than the general Molokai forecast.
Embody Life Yoga suggests you allow yourself plenty of time between connections from your departure city to your final destination in Moloka'I as there are no direct commercial flights from the mainland to Moloka'i. Major commercial airlines offer flights from the Mainland to Honolulu, Oahu (HNL) or Kahului, Maui (OGG). Typically major carriers offer the best fares and more flights into and out of Honolulu (HNL).
Inter-island flights from Honolulu or Maui into Moloka'i are served by small, inter-island carriers. Some major carriers subcontract with an inter-island carrier and issue tickets from the Mainland to Molokai and back as one ticket. It is often preferable to book flights from the Mainland to Honolulu or Maui separately from the inter-island flights. Please be sure and coordinate your flights with the retreat centers check-in and check-out parameters listed.
