About this trip

Tap into and envelop yourself in the magical Hawaiian energy named Mana to enliven, strengthen and heal your body from inside out. Lumeria is the coveted wellness resort and gem in the high country of Maui, Hawaii. It is a serene, tropical jewel and island paradise with 5.6 acres of private retreat and offers beautiful views of the north shore and central valley. Lumeria Maui is located between the famous historic plantation towns of Paia and Makawao, with easy access to the best beaches and surf breaks on Maui’s north shore as well as a plethora of offsite adventure and learning experiences. A wellness resort exquisitely designed to offer an oasis of healing and tranquility to restore your soul. It’s the perfect haven for rejuvenating, rebooting, diving deeper and reconnecting with your yoga practice, fun and yourself.

Your days will be filled with powerful, uplifting and deeply connected yoga led by Carla Herzenberg. Morning sequences will be 90-100 minutes of dynamic and fiery flow mixed with restorative and regenerative stretching to ignite the energy and lift the frequency of the day. Following a beautiful, nourishing breakfast of organic fruits, yogurt, and granola or hot options, you will be off to play, explore and island adventure on one of the many magical island excursions. Whether you go surfing or SUP at the dream like Kaulahao or Ho'okipa Beach, hiking  the lush, green trails of the majestic Waterfall or Bamboo Forest, kayaking or snorkeling with sea turtles and (maybe) whales or enjoy the palatial grounds of Lumeria and relax, read, swim or luxuriate next to the heated mineral infinity pool, your day will be full of restorative island energy and big fun! You may also enjoy a deeply healing massage or spa treatment before your evening Yoga Flow with Carla, which will be a mix of restorative and slow flow stretching. This will deliver you to a gorgeous farm to table dinner. Chef Ben Diamond harvests the edible landscape for his farm-to-table dinner menus (which change daily) using seasonal ingredients— harvested from the bounty of Lumeria's organic gardens and other local farms. Each night, sample new dishes prepared from mahi-mahi, Pacific steelhead trout, and other local fish and seasonal produce.

This will be a week filled with light, tropical vibes, joy, sweat, laughter, adventure, connecting and lifted spirits. You will grow your yoga practice, give yourself love, self care and truly live aloha. Finding beauty, balance, and stillness amidst the flux and flow of life. Spend the week floating in the land of rainbows where the ocean and soft sand beaches meet the towering green mountains and waterfalls. You will return home longer, leaner, lighter and brighter, full of Mana.

We created Metta Yoga to bring a yoga studio to Marin County, CA that is dynamic and fun, yet still deeply rooted in yogic tradition. In the spirit of metta, or loving kindness, we created a beautiful space for our community to come together and explore the practice of yoga – both on and off the mat. We hope that Metta Yoga inspires you to live vibrantly, compassionately and joyfully.

Todos was a great trip! The retreat center was beautiful, clean and very comfortable. I can’t say enough about the delicious food. We had 3 fresh meals a day that were fresh, healthy and different. The staff there was very helpful and friendly. All of the executions and activities were so fun. My favorite was swimming with the sea lions! Above all, the yoga classes/workshops were top notch and a the yogi's on the retreat were the best! I certainly want to go again! Thank you Carla!
By Karen K for Todos Santos Yoga in Paradise Retreat with Carla Herzenberg on Oct 30, 2023
This was the most wonderful yoga retreat. There were ~20 of us and we had the option to join meditation each morning, attend 2 yoga classes/day, eat wonderful, fresh food for meals and join excursions with the group. It was incredibly relaxing and everyone was warm and welcoming. I highly recommend joining a retreat with Metta Yoga if you are considering one.

We had a wonderful time. Lumeria was perfect for a yoga retreat. It was serene, food delicious- it had everything we needed. Temple and July from Metta did an incredible thoughtful retreat. I would recommend to anyone!!

This was my first yoga retreat and I didn't know the studio or people that would be joining so there were a lot of unknowns. I'm happy to share that this was a life changing experience. The yoga teachers were amazing, we had two leaders and they complemented each other very nicely. The group was also great, such a nice and supportive group of women. This retreat gave me a chance to self-reflect and practice self-care that had been lacking in my life. I highly recommend this yoga studio and look forward to another retreat with this team.

This was a fantastic trip led and organized by Carla! I would do it again in a heartbeat. Lumeria is a beautiful location for hosting a yoga retreat: lush, comfortable, relaxing, and some of the best vegetarian-option meals I've ever had. But really, Carla's leadership and planning is what really made this trip special. The yoga was as juicy and fulfilling as the papaya and pineapple. The day trips--beaches, rainforest hiking, waterfall cliff jumping and pool swimming, SUP with whales--were a celebration of the natural beauty of Maui. Can't wait to go again!
