Transport yourself from winter to spring in the magical waters of Hawaii. This enchanting retreat held at tranquil Hookena Bay will nourish and relax every cell of your body. A full week of yoga, ocean swimming, kayaking, hiking, journaling, creativity, and quiet moments on the beach will enable a deep peace and restoration island style.
Your home for the week is Hale Kai, a surreal yoga retreat center on the secluded waters of Hookena Bay. Hand built, artful bungalows are set in a luxuriant garden of tropical fruits and flowers, and connected by footpaths. Wake to birdsong in the palms, watch whales pass from the yoga pavilion, swim with the dolphins, and drift to sleep to the lullaby of ocean waves.
Hale Kai offers beautiful open-air living in a peaceful and inspirational environment about 500 feet from the Pacific Ocean. The Balinese style yoga space, kitchen, and accommodations blend with the spirit of old Hawaii to create a magical place for the retreat. There are many bedrooms in the main house and in the screened bungalows located around it.
There are some bedrooms, which are single occupancy, and some that are shared occupancy. There are plenty of bathrooms, some exclusive to the bedrooms. There is also an outdoor shower tucked inside the lush, Hawaiian flora.
Hale Kai is a sustainable retreat center that is off the grid. They use solar energy so the showers are warm during the day when the sun is out. There are two showers that are warm 24 hours a day.
The rooms available are master, Ganesha, Bali, Lanai, Timor, Sanang, Garden, Gecko, Rose, and Nai'a. Please contact Women's Quest for more information about these rooms.
Treat yourself to this tantalizing week of relaxation, with daily yoga practice, guided journaling, and creative exercises including the trademark heart’s desire process, designed to clarify your dreams and unleash your potential. You’ll drench your senses in the island paradise of Hawaii, taking invigorating exploratory ocean swims with turtles, dolphins, and whales, and snorkeling the coral reefs.
Wrapping ourselves in the luxury of nature, you’ll swim, hike the sacred sites, and explore the beautiful area around you. Women's Quest provides expert guidance and instruction during all activities, supporting all ability and experience levels. Take time for yourself, in the company of new friends.
Awaken to the scent of a plumeria-infused breeze wafting through your bungalow, and indulge in a mug of Kona coffee or herbal tisane as the iridescent dawn spread over the ocean. As you like, take a morning jog or hike up to the rim of the cliffs, or stroll a few meters to the beach for your first swim of the day in the bay.
If the dolphins are in, it’s a magical treat and you check the bay each morning to see if dolphin friends have arrived and want to play with you. Breakfast follows, with a vibrant fruit salad, a hearty egg dish, fresh baked goods, yogurt, teas, juices, and cereals. Then, you’ll either relax at Hale Kai, or have a group outing to the beach for swimming, SUP, kayaking, or snorkeling; or a day-trip to one of the favorite spots on the island: the ancient site of City of Refuge, the undersea paradise of Honaunau, hiking to a hidden beach, or kayaking to the Captain Cook Monument.
Lunch is served on the terrace at Hale Kai, or you’ll take a picnic lunch. After lunch, you’re free to take a nap, relax in the fabulous silk cushions on the veranda, or languish in a shady hammock with a good book. You’ll cap off the day with either an energizing or restorative yoga class, depending on earlier activities, in the open yoga pavilion overlooking the ocean.
After a sunset dinner, featuring the sumptuous fresh cuisine of chef David, you relax in an after-dinner circle with guided sharing and lots of laughter before letting the sound of the waves lull you to sleep under the starry velvet sky.
You do not need to participate in everything; you can pace yourself so that it is the perfect amount of activity for you. Women's Quest fully support you in doing as much or as little as is right for you in the moment. The schedule gives you a sense of the flow of each day. It is subject to change, depending upon the needs of the group, weather, etc.
The staff is an inspiring and spirited group of women! You will have the chance to play with women who are both phenomenal athletes and articulate teachers. The high staff-to-participant ratio allows opportunity for individual guidance, safe supervision for all activities and personal attention to your needs. The staff or mermaids for this trip are Colleen Cannon and Anna Pettis Scott.
The retreat begins on Sunday at 4:00 p.m. at the Hale Kai house with dinner at 6:00 p.m. The retreat ends on Saturday after breakfast.
