YOGA

We will be practicing once some days, and twice on some days and will be explore breath work, precise alignment and energetics of postures, the blueprint postures, meditation, reading and seeing bodies, the 8 limbs of yoga and living our yoga off the mat, restoratives, and more. We will begin most days with a morning practice and some days we will meet back on the mat in the afternoon or evening for a workshop and asana lab to dive into and break down the asanas and practice in greater depth, or a restorative class to relax and restore. 





MEDITATION

We will enjoy guided meditation and will explore the style of Vipassana meditation also known as insight meditation. Within this style we will explore a variety of methods including breath meditation, and heart meditations including a compassion meditation and a metta or living kindness meditation. We will talk about the basics of meditation, finding a comfortable seat, and the roots of mindfulness.





Hiking 

We will be getting out for a hike while on Kaua'i to further immerse in the lush vegetation and island flora and fauna surrounding us. Please plan on some uphill and incline hiking as many of Kaua'i's hikes go up up up for those exquisite island views, as well as mud and hiking amidst Kaua'i's gorgeous red dirt. Kaua'i's red dirt stains so please plan accordingly and bring some clothing and hiking shoes you do not care about getting muddy or stained. 





Surfing 

We will be heading our for a surfing lesson with a local instructor during our retreat and will also have some free time to surf more or add additional lessons. We will surf on the north shore most likely on Hanalei Bay, but swell dependent. 


Hanalei Bay is one of the most well-known spots on the island of Kauai, and there are many other spots in and around the bay. Hanalei itself is a long right point that breaks on the eastern side of the bay for up to 300 yards over lava reef. 


It is a fairly powerful wave with occasional barrel sections that ends with an inside bowl section in the middle of the bay. Farther north, up and around the point from Hanalei, is a reefbreak right called Hideaways. Further inside the bay is PineTrees, which needs a larger swell and a good sandbar setup at the rivermouth. Directly across Hanalei Bay from the main point is a fickle left reefbreak called Waikokos, which needs a large N swell and W wind. The beloved pier offers friendly waves for all levels. 







Hawaiian Lei Making 

Immerse in the Hawaiian culture and learn the art and techniques of traditional lei making on the garden island of Kauai. Enjoy a lei-making workshop and immersive experience in a beautiful workshop-style floral adventure using local and native flowers and plants. 








Lodging -- 


Princeville, Hawaii - North Shore 


We will be staying in several beautiful private homes/condos for the retreat. 


Located in the heart of Princeville within a mile of many activities such as tennis, bike/exercise paths, golfing, surfing, snorkeling. Nearby beaches are at SeaLodge, Pu'u Poa, Pali Ke Kua (Hideaways). 


There are restaurants and shops all within the Princeville Resort Community. Foodland Supermarket, a gas station, a post office, and banks are about a mile away at the Princeville Center located to the left of the entrance to Princeville. 


The world-famous Hanalei Bay is just a few minutes drive. Hanalei town is home to unique and flavorful restaurants and food trucks, farmers market, shops, and beach equipment rental. Beyond that lies Tunnels Beach, Ke’e Beach and the Hanakapai‘ai trailhead, to name a few jewels. Traveling south you will find the newly opened Anaina Hou miniature golf course with a Hawaiian tropical theme. Kilauea Lighthouse, botanical gardens, zip lines, helicopter rides, and kayaking.








Welcome to Kauaʻi

Kauaʻi is Hawaiʻi's fourth largest island and is sometimes called the "Garden Island," which is an entirely accurate description.


The oldest and northernmost island in the Hawaiian chain is draped in emerald valleys, sharp mountain spires and jagged cliffs aged by time and the elements. Centuries of growth have formed tropical rainforests, forking rivers and cascading waterfalls! Some parts of Kauaʻi are only accessible by sea or air, revealing views beyond your imagination.








Princeville, Kaua'i

Framed by stunning cliffside views that overlook the Pacific, Princeville is a common destination for many visitors to the island of Kauai. In fact, sunsets and beaches in the area are picturesque. Many restaurants accentuate this beauty with outdoor patios that are perfectly lit to enjoy the sunset and your meal at the same time.


You can also enjoy nature by walking, biking, or running along the many paths in the area, such as Princeville’s main corridor or Princeville Path. You can even take in a waterfall or two at the nearby Namolokama Mountain which can be viewed when there has been a good bit of rain.


Princeville offers a strong sense of community that not only attracts residents but visitors as well. Enjoy the peaceful beauty of Princeville. The town has embraced its ancient history that shaped much of the area and Hawaii as a whole.


The Princeville community continues to grow amidst Kauai’s beautiful, lush valleys and tropical forests. Through this growth, the community still values the memories and traditions of the old Kauai, as well as the area's historical ties to the Kamehameha dynasty.





See you on the beach friends and family, xo

A wonderful retreat with Mary and new friends on the beautiful island of Kauai!! My first time on the island… simply an amazing place! Mary was not only a great yoga instructor but her shared island adventures with us was just perfect! Beautiful accommodations, fun shopping, beach cleanup day, shared meals, paddle boarding, plenty of sun & surf, lei making and many breathtaking site seeing photo opportunities …. An all around wonderful trip!! Thank you Mary for a memorable experience!!

I enjoyed the kids yoga teacher training. Mary Stults is a wealth of information. I am excited to get started.
By Barbara P for Kids Yoga Teacher Training with Adventure Yoga For Kids (50HR) on Oct 10, 2023
This trip was so great!! I had the pleasure of attending this trip in the past and couldn't wait to attend again. things have only gotten better since I last went. All of the accommodations were great, close to shops and events, and the activities are well thought out and things I would not have thought of myself. The paddle along the cliff sides is breathtaking, and the VIP experience at Cova d'en Xoroi is a once in a lifetime experience. i wouldn't hesitate to attend more Trips with Mary Susan.

Thank you, Mary for the experience of a lifetime! Mary was very prepared for any and all circumstances during our many adventures, most of which I can personally say gave me the assurance and comfort to have the best day ever on our excursions. Mary provided all dietary accommodations offered at each food venue, gave valuable insights on local customs and celebrations, personally vetted and obtained trusting relationships with all activity guides, prioritized safety protocols, and prepared a backup plan for all the weather interruptions on the trip. More importantly, at each major point in the trip she was conscious of each person’s needs for well being and rest. I personally could not have had a successful boating excursion without her peppermint oil and her guidance on how to position oneself on the boat. I also appreciated when, after seeing our state of being after a full day, she offered a lovely and deeply thoughtful meditation instead of her personalized yoga class (which I can attest gives invaluable insight into improving foundational yoga poses). I want to note that her yoga practice is not strictly abiding, and she values the allowance and space to move in a way that suits each body and mind. With no stone unturned, she offered a wide array of accessible yoga and meditation resources after the trip with thoughtful detail via email, and shared amazing photos that we could all view on all devices. Everyday offered something new and exciting, as she allowed space on the itinerary to offer some fun evening activities based on special events. We were in awe of Barcelona and Menorca for its beauty and its people. I’m grateful for Mary’s nurturing and knowledgeable approach to all her activities, as well as the friendships formed with each lovely woman on the trip. If you want countless opportunities for something your soul can smile about, I would go on one of her adventures.
