About this trip

A wild, beautiful, restful adventure!

Friends, students, big hearted adventurers! I am SO excited to invite you to join me for a magical retreat on the island of Kauai.

If you haven’t yet been, Kauai is a lush, beautiful, majestic place.

Spiritual seekers / peeps call each of the Hawaiian islands as it corresponds to one of the seven chakras. Kauai, in particular, is known as the island of intuition, connected with your third eye, the place of inner knowing and clear seeing. 

From the moment I landed there on my first visit several years ago it felt like my heart and mind were syncing up. Like the sync between phone and computer! The outer beauty - insanely gorgeous mountains, streams, crystal waters.. Connected to a very healing, beautiful inner place. Each time I’ve been here has been a transformative trip in that I just arrive however I am (usually exhausted!) and surrender to the healing nature of the island.. 

Each time walking away in awe of my time here.. feeling most alive, radiant and recharged and ready to grow in my life.

The daily yoga and meditation practices offered will come from that place draw on the healing powers of the island… reconnecting to intuition, clear seeing, and inner sanctuary space.  

This is a retreat for women! Lead by me - Julianne And supported by 2 other women teachers and lots of amazing hands on assists. We've all been students of the yoga practice for a very long time, and 2 of us have been teaching for 4 years.

All levels of yoga practitioners are welcome, all backgrounds, all open-minded, kind people seeking an easy, extraordinarily beautiful, and transformative experience. 

I do ask that you have some kind of  regular practice and can make time at home or at a studio to practice at least once a week leading up to the retreat, as this will just make it more enjoyable for you. Most who come on the retreat practice 'a bit' and enjoy yoga, but are not advanced :)

We will leverage the endorphins, strength, ease and wonder that come from moving the physical body with yoga, hiking, meditate walking in labyrinths, surfing.. and plenty of time in my favorite pose - the beach chiller pose for wellbeing, joy and deep rejuvination.

I draw on the contemplative traditions of reiki, meditation, yoga, nutrition, positive psychology and integrative wellness to address the entire human experience - physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. I teach a steady, strong and spirited vinyasa class. Classes are thoughtfully designed to the seasons and time of day. You can expect to chant, sweat, feel your heart come alive and learn new elements of yoga philosophy in each class. I also love teaching restorative yoga and yoga nidra in late afternoons and evenings on retreat.


This was such a delightful weekend away. A chance to make new friends in the open air while moving my body all day, everyday, for three days straight. The venue Julie selected for this retreat was so unique--we all stayed in yurts, glamping tents, shipping containers, a water tower, a mobile home, and, of course, a house. And they were all incredibly comfortable. My favorite non-yoga part of the weekend was showering in the open air looking out over the forest and cold plunging in cast iron bath tubs under the trees to cool off after our last yoga session before departing. Julie does such a wonderful job shaping the weekend but providing enough flexibility to let things evolve organically. I walked away with a group of wonderful new gal pals after this weekend!

Julie’s yoga retreats bring people of all ages together to share, practice, eat amazing food and relax. I particularly enjoy Julie’s knowledge of yoga and meditative practice. I recommend nourishing yourself with this skilled and nurturing practitioner. DR

This retreat was an oasis weekend getaway. The location was my favorite part, with rustic "glamping" accommodation in the forest near the Yuba River. The flow of the weekend was so organic between connecting with like minded women, attending an invigorating yoga session, eating yummy food, and relaxing by the river. Julie did a fabulous job organizing this from before the retreat even started, up until when we said our goodbyes the last day. I just wish the retreat were longer! A great weekend to recharge, relax and renew in nature.

Julie and Kirin facilitated a fabulous week at Blue Osa and I feel unbelievably grateful for the safe and inviting space they created in a very magical part of the world. I didn't know a single other participant taking the trip and found that there were many other women in my shoes who joined the retreat. There was an incredible age range and women who had a wide variety of job types and life experiences to share. We all got along so so well and Julie and Kirin did an incredible job teaching yoga classes to match student's needs as well as opportunities to connect and be held in a safe and supportive environment. Our time together went far beyond yoga classes. Dance and barre classes were offered and beautiful, heartfelt and tender chants were sung together at the yoga shala with a harmonium and those songs filled my soul in a powerful way. I would love to attend another retreat with Julie in the future!!

Julieanne and Kirin's retreats are the perfect blend of soul food style movement, downtempo relaxation time in a gorgeous environment, friendship, delicious healthy food and fun. I can not provide a higher endorsement for a trip with these women and feel so lucky to have experienced multiple yoga vacations. Honestly, the most relaxing, deeply nourishing and low stress trips of my life. If you are reading this.....just book the damn trip. You will not be disappointed.

I recently returned from an incredible 7 day retreat at the wonderful Blue Osa in Costa Rica, hosted by Julie and Kirin. The community formed in a week amongst 15 women, ranging in age from 23-73, without expectation, and trusting something was there for all of us, was truly magical and something I have never experienced. Julie and Kirin created a safe space for us to share our grief, tender spots, goals and vulnerability. This retreat was long overdue for me, as a mom of two young girls, it truly was one of the best experiences of my life. The retreat gave me the space to be held in nature, by new friends, through delicious healthy meals and most importantly fill my cup first so I can give back to my family and those around me. Julie and Kirin are authentic, loving and inspiring in their own unique way, it was truly a gift to be able to practice alongside them and a group of beautiful women. I highly recommend any retreat with Julie and Kirin as it will change your life forever!

Since returning from Kauai, I have felt a sense of retreat throughout my days. Peace and serenity weave through my day, easing the stress from work and everyday tasks. I am motivated and inspired to continue what I have learned on the retreat and bring it into my daily life. This retreat showed me what it was like to take care of myself and ultimately how that will help me to take care of those around me. From eating healthy meals, to practicing yoga regularly, to calming my mind and practicing kind observations. A huge thank you to Julie for her care and support during the retreat. It was a treat being able to spend this time with her guiding our group. She was prepared and had lots of information and goodies to share, yet was flexible and open to changing the itinerary based on the needs of the group and the weather. Her knowledge of yoga, the island, cooking, and many other great things kept us inspired and in awe. I would recommend a retreat with Julie to anyone with a curious mind, an open heart, and anyone who wants to truly relax and retreat in a healthy and rejuvenating way.
