Kalani Retreat Center
In a casual tropical setting this intimate yoga retreat invites guests to get back to basics.
A place of refuge and renewal for more than 30 years, Kalani Retreat Center on the Big Island invites guests to downward dog, Hawaiian-style. The accommodations are simple, bordered by tropical jungle and the Pacific Ocean; phones and televisions are absent; and the food is fresh, local and vegetarian-friendly. Yogis of all skill levels take part in a wide array of yoga practices, including classical hatha, kundalini and vinyasa flow. The weekly activities calendar is loaded with numerous classes taught by certified in-house and visiting faculty. Once you finish your breathing exercises for the day, shake things up with an Ecstatic Dance workshop or round up a team to play volleyball. Kalani's location makes it easy to hike to active lava flows, zipline through the jungle and explore cultural and heritage sites.
