Are you seeking some Aloha healing energy for the soul?

Join us in Hawaii and drop into paradise at the gorgeous oceanfront Hawaii Island Retreat and Wellness Spa, an eco-boutique hotel and wellness spa located on Hawaii Island's North Kohala coast. With 50 acres of oceanfront tropical forest, organic gardens and ancient valley trails, this is the perfect setting to relax, recharge, reconnect and renew! Feel the ocean breeze, watch the sunrise and sunset at the private cove, and draw on the magical energy of this sacred Hawaiian land.

Enjoy delicious local food from the organic farm on property, stay in Hawaiian decorated comfortable accommodations with ocean or forest views, swim in the solar heated and salt purified infinity pool, relax in the salt purified hot tub, and connect with the rich and beautiful culture and nature.

There will be free time to take local trips to nearby sandy beaches for swimming and snorkeling, local Hawaiian towns and other sites, explore the island, or enjoy activities such as surfing, SUP, kayaking, snorkeling, horseback riding, zip lining, fishing, sailing, whale or dolphin watching and more! We hope you can make the most of your time on the beautiful Hawaii Island whilst also taking time to relax and recharge, deepen your yoga and meditation practice, and connect with like-minded yogis and friends.

The morning yoga classes will be vinyasa flow yoga for all levels, linking movement with the breath for an energizing yet relaxing flow. With creative and balanced sequences, strengthening and lengthening, detoxing and pranayama, you will experience a strong, safe and supportive practice. Modifications and options will be provided for different abilities. You'll have the opportunity to play with some backbends, arm balances, and inversions if you choose, and cool down with some deep stretches to restore the body and mind.

The evening classes will be yin or restorative yoga, with longer held seated and supine postures, stretching, lengthening, releasing tension and creating more space in deeper layers of connective tissues in the body. Yin yoga is also a perfect opportunity to journey inwards and practice meditation. All levels are welcome as we provide options and modifications so everyone feels comfortable.

We look forward to sharing this journey and adventure with you in beautiful Hawaii Big Island!

"I have been practicing yoga for over 10 years and this was hands down my favorite retreat. Sally comes with a wealth of yoga knowledge and experience that she shares in a comfortable and supportive way. Her classes were deep, insightful, nourishing, and energizing. The group was awesome professional women from a variety of backgrounds. I love that we practiced yoga and meditation together but also had time to explore on our own or in small groups. I already signed up for another Body Flows retreat! Thank you Sally." - Angela B

Throughout the property, there are walking trails to explore ancient Hawaiin sites, organic farm and gardens, and a private cove for whale watching and stunning sunsets. The towns of Hawi and Kapaau, with local boutiques, cafes, restaurants, and farmer's markets, are just 1 mile from the center and well worth the visit for a taste of the local Hawaiian culture.
