AUTUMN EQUINOX "LIVING OUR ALOHA' IN-TOWN RETREAT: September 22nd 4:25 pm - 7:25 pm (gathering at 4:15 pm)
"Aloha calls. Listen into the breeze, the splash of the waves - the air is filled with Aloha. Listen, you are being called to the Aloha Spirit."
Offered on the eve of the Autumn Equinox, this 3 hour in town retreat is intended to help you find balance & harmony within as we leave the summer months behind & move into autumn. We will be working with simple, yet powerful breathing practices that unleash mana loa (power/ energy) & renew us. We will be calling the beautiful Aloha Spirit as we spend time in contemplation & in rythym with nature, bringing balance into our lives on this day when night & day are of equal length. Beginning with meditation & stretching on Aina (land), we will transition to a relaxed paddleboarding tour to warm up and connect with Wai (water), eventually landing in a serene location to anchor our boards & begin our SUP yoga practice. We will paddle back just before sunset and gather for a special closing to celebrate autumn.
Come and LIVE your ALOHA with us as we welcome autumn! Aloha! Mahalo!
Pre-requisite: Basic Paddleboarding experience required. No prior yoga or meditation experience required. Beginners encouraged!
Come with friends or make new friends! Cost: $70 per person, all equipment and instruction included. BYOB rate $55
