About this trip

IMMERSE - A Hawaii Yoga and Surf Adventure Retreat 

with Mary Susan Stults 




July 20th - 25th, 2022





The Garden Island of Kauai, Hawaii ~





Immerse this summer in Hawaii. 


Finding beauty, balance, and stillness amidst the flux and flow of life. Meet in the land of rainbows where the ocean and soft sand beaches meets the towering green mountains and waterfalls.


Join me at home in Hawaii this upcoming summer on the picturesque, nature-laden, and majestic Garden Isle of Kauai, Hawaii this July for an immersive, expansive, adventurous, joy-filled, and naturally luxurious week shared together on the lush and iconic North Shore. 


Together we'll enjoy a return to and celebration of our True Nature and a recognition of our innate wholeness. We'll create a sense of spaciousness to slow down as we follow the natural rhythms of the sun, the moon, and the tides. 


Let's soak up and enjoy a deep dive into our yoga and vipassana meditation practices, plenty of surfing, the Hawaiian culture and history, Mother Nature and our earthly roots, art and creativity, Paddleboarding, and into life lived fully and well. 


Take some time in paradise to progress your yoga practice, surf and learn on the waves with an incredible local surf instructor, paddle, play, hike and explore, and enjoy that island life and plenty of beach days.


We'll enjoy a stay at the wonderful resort hotel and locale in Princeville and take advantage of all of their incredible amenities on site and endless activities surrounding us. 


Retreat yourself next May in Hawaii and take time to explore the best beaches, get out into nature, venture to see other areas of the island, slow down and connect in a lei-making workshop, and enjoy time to enjoy our days to the utmost fullest.  


We believe that community is medicine, and together we thrive. 


I can hardly wait to share all of the beauty of my home with you all on retreat this July under the summer sun, xo

YOGA

We will be practicing once some days, and twice on most 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 meet back on the mat in the afternoon for a workshop and asana lab to dive into and break down the asanas and practice in greater depth.





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 or two while on Kauai 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 Kauai's hikes go up up up for those exquisite island views, as well as mud and hiking amidst Kauai's gorgeous red dirt. Kauai'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 surfing lessons 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 with Kaua'i-born and raised Ivory Kealani Lloyd in a beautiful workshop-style floral adventure using local and native flowers and plants.

Reviews

Mary gave us a wonderful trip. I enjoyed her easy-to-follow breakdown of popular yoga poses. I found that it enhanced my experience and improved my physical/mental connection to the poses and yoga practice in general. I fell back in love with power yoga again after years of it being stale. Her yoga nidra and restorative yoga practice reinforced some great mantras and relayed positive reinforcement and good vibes. She’s truly lovely and has practiced from the best. The travel experiences were so much fun and very relaxing. I felt very safe and loved throughout the whole trip. Could not have asked for a better facilitator.
By Noelle H for Aspen Yoga, Meditation, Hot Springs Retreat on 22 Dec, 2021
This yoga and meditation retreat was the perfect reset I needed, spiritually and physically. I'm grateful for all the care and attention Mary put into planning our sessions and activities. There was a comfortable flexibility, with lots of good options, and the right amount of downtime, too. She is knowledgeable, real, and down to earth; a beautiful and refreshing presence. She created a warm and accepting atmosphere, offering us the space to tap into what we needed. I like learning about different kinds of meditations and breath work, it is so incredibly helpful and centering for me. The yoga sessions were revolutionarily helpful in breaking down the foundations of the poses to align properly, and with gentleness. It felt so good to move my body and breathe!
By Lisa R for CO Yoga, Hiking, Hot Springs Adventure Retreat - SOLD OUT on 24 May, 2021
MARY is 5 STARS all the way around......From the moment I met her and throughout the Telluride trip everything was AMAZING. The accommodations, food and extra excursions Mary set up for us despite COVID, despite an unexpected snowstorm in September and juggling schedule changes she made the TRIP by far unforgettable. Her hospitality and Yoga expertise were outstanding. Mary made me feel like I've known her forever and I consider her a wonderful close friend. She is very gifted in her chosen practice and such a BEAUTIFUL SPIRIT. If I could afford it I would love to go on all of Mary's yoga retreats and adventures. Maria LeMieux -Telluride 2020

Being a yoga novice, I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect. I can honestly say this trip was everything I wanted and more! Mary did an excellent job accommodating participants of every skill level and making everyone feel equally comfortable. There was an instant bond among all the women on the trip that just grew stronger throughout the retreat. The food was phenomenal as were the add-on activities. I loved every minute of it and would highly recommend this trip to anyone who needs a little “me time.” I definitely left more relaxed, yet alive, then when I arrived.
