About this trip

A wild, beautiful, restful adventure!

Calling all spiritual adventurers, creators, skeptics, teachers, scientists, lovers and curious souls..

If living from a place of high energy, love, joy and creativity is a priority for you this year, this is the retreat for you!!

This retreat will focus on awakening Shakti! the creative feminine force in yoga, is inherent in each of us. The practices and adventures offered will rejuvenate you to freely express this shakti through active and restorative yoga, deep rest, play! dance classes, body painting, breathwork and energy healing.

We are all inherently creative beings and nurturing this aspect of yourself is so joyful and deeply healing.


There's lots of info there about the gorgeous place we'll be staying, the beach a 5 minute walk away! the delicious yoga practices and food we'll enjoy while we're there. These retreats are always a deep reset for the soul and Kauai in particular has a powerful feminine energy that is deeply nourishing and very powerful. 


About us:

Julianne and Devi are soul sisters steeped in the art and science of yoga, ayurveda and creative expression. Our teamwork elevates each of our offerings and we are excited to be collaborating for a week-long adventure for the first time.


About Julianne:

I feel privileged to introduce you to a brilliant approach to wellbeing. I draw on the contemplative traditions of reiki and meditation, yoga, nutrition, integrative wellness and the modern science and tools of positive psychology to address the entire human experience - physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.


My public classes are fluid and strong vinyasa classes that fuse intention, humor, breath work, building strength and feeling into a deep sense of being. Sequences are designed mindfully with the seasons and time of day we're practicing to best support integration of this beautiful practice. I so look forward to meeting you and serving you on your journey.


About Devi:

Devi is a Bay Area hip hop dance, yoga, and group fitness instructor with a background in theatre.  She infuses her classes with a sense of play and moments of comedic relief.  Devi has completed over 700 hours of yoga teacher + dance training and prioritizes integrity of alignment, integration of breath, and expression of soul in her classes.  Devi empowers her students to release the idea of "getting it right" in order to unapologetically be themselves and move their bodies.  Aside from all that, she is passionate about guacamole, beat drops, and yerba mate. 


About Kauai:

If you haven’t yet been, Kauai is absolutely majestic. 


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 and surrender to the healing nature of the island.. 


The retreat:

 will include daily morning meditation and yoga practices that are themed to the season, the place, and the moment. There will a beautiful balance of energizing practices with restorative. 


This is retreat is perfect for someone:

- who loves yoga and relishes in the opportunity to practice daily in a beautiful place. 

- interested in slowing down and soaking up the relaxed pace of Kauai and our trip 

- looking for a balance of quiet, restful time as well as fun adventures, hikes with new friends and surf/ beach trips. 


 Lead by me, Julianne and supported by 1-2 amazing assistants.

My one ask! If possible, please make time to practice yoga or dance at least once a week leading up to the retreat, as this will just make it more enjoyable for you. 


Accommodations:

The place we're staying is a Balinese style resort. It is a one-of-a-kind place with incredible art, infrastructure, and really good vibes! There is a hot tub on site, and one of the most beautiful beaches in all of Kauai is a 5 minute walk away!


Room rates vary based on privacy. Please know that if you choose to stay in the twin dorm-style room, its very beautiful! And there are lots of nook-style places on the property to hang out, read a book, write, and relax. 


Pricing - As you may know, Hawaii in general is expensive! They are islands in the middle of the pacific ocean! A big part of what makes the vibe so GOOD! 


Aloha!

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


I can't wait!

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 slow, 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.

What an epic retreat. We sang, we ate the most delicious food, we danced, we yoga'd, we hot tubbed, we hiked, we chatted, we relaxed - we really did it all in one beautiful weekend. Julie is such a talented instructor, her gifts go beyond leading a yoga class, and into chanting, sound baths, breath work, and she's able to lead you into a really magical state of meditation. This was my second year going and I will make it an annual retreat for sure!
I selected this trip after meeting Julianne Aiello by telephone. We spoke and Julianne invited me to share my yoga journey with her and how taking this trip could deepen my practice. I was excited to travel solo and take the chance at meeting incredible people. Everything I could have imagined came to light. Soulshine is an exquisite beautiful place. From the staff who are so helpful, patient and kind to the amazing food we were presented with everyday. My most pleasant memory is doing meditation and all that was heard in the distance was the crowing of roosters. The quietness of the space despite the busyness of guests coming and going was remarkable. Julie made the experience transformative with her depth of knowledge of yoga, mindfulness, and meditation. She has the ability to make all participants feel welcome and secure. I am looking forward to many more experiences with this amazing teacher. Dianne Roenicke

This retreat was incredible, full of beautiful healthy food, spectacular yoga and the most amazing company. Julie is a true gem and her pure authentic heart shines though in all that she does. Accommodations were breathtaking and Julie took great care to make all the details perfect. I had the most relaxing time and was able to work through some stuck energy with the support of some amazing women. This is my second retreat with Julie and I can't wait to sign up for the next one!
One of the most transformative, rejuvenating vacations. Julie is a true gem, a wonderful instructor with a passion for yoga and a deep commitment to building community. She excellently communicated all pre-trip responsibilities (booking flights, scheduling airport pickups, booking excursions, etc) and made everyone feel so welcomed and loved upon arrival and throughout the retreat. This was my 3rd (!) yoga retreat with Julie and I definitely recommend her to anyone looking to explore or deepen their yoga practice. She is a joy, and it's always a treat to spend a week learning from her :)

I had a phenomenal experience at Julie's retreat. The attention to detail and execution were world class. From the meditation to the yoga, each session was guided and instructed with care and backed with a deep understanding of the practice. Julie helped me improve my yoga practice in particular and I'm grateful for the opportunity to have attended. Thank you Julie!

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.

Julie’s yoga retreat in Kauai was absolutely magical. It was obvious she put her heart and soul into every aspect of the trip from bringing together an amazing group of women to cooking delicious meals to leading us on transformative adventures. Experiencing the infectious passion and energy of her yoga classes daily was a powerful force throughout the trip. The memories from our time in Kauai will stay with me forever!

I couldn’t rave about Julie’s retreats enough. She is the perfect planner and takes all of the hassle out of trip organization and travel with her retreats. From morning practice to meal planning to daily adventures, the February 2018 Kauai retreat went beyond my wildest expectations. Her yoga sessions are the best mix of relaxation and strength. You’ll come away feeling refreshed, rejuvenated, and in a state of bliss.
