      About this trip

      With Heather Salmon, Donny Regal and Special Guest Chef Kyra Bramble

      Begin 2018 with a transformative raw food, yoga, Aerial Yoga Play, and sound healing retreat in the lush tropical north shore of Maui in Hawaii, surrounded by wild exotic fruit trees and flowing waterfalls. You will leave this retreat spiritually inspired, physically detoxed, and mentally empowered to take your new understanding of holistic health and apply it to your daily life.

      You will empower yourself to live at your highest potential while vacationing in paradise. This retreat will cleanse your body with fresh organic live food bursting with nutrients and flavor as well as learn how to make your own gourmet raw food at home. Your day will begin with the chirping of tropical birds as you awaken in a lush nature sanctuary. You will enjoy a raw breakfast followed by a two hour Hatha yoga, Aerial Yoga Play, and sound healing session.

      Next is another raw gourmet meal followed by free time to explore the local jungles and waterfalls, come back for a raw food cooking class, and then enjoy your creations for dinner. This special retreat offers daily raw food classes, three gourmet raw food meals, aerial yoga play classes, and sound healing sessions.

      Morning Practice

      Experience the healing power of yoga and sound. You will begin your day with an amazing two hours program.

You will then move into the new technology of the Aerial Yoga Play swings where students from ages 10 to 87 have experienced incredible empowerment and inspiration.

      The session completes with a 30 to 45-minute journey into the world of sacred sound and the healing 432 Hertz frequencies of the crystal singing bowls and live music and soundscapes. During the sound meditations, you will embark on specific journeys that may include chakras, organs, energy bodies, astral travel, or other transformational journeys.

      This yoga retreat will take place at Black Swan Temple Maui in Hawaii, USA. This tropical jungle earth temple is surrounded by waterfalls and situated in a very sacred part of the island that was known as the home of the owl, the resting place of mature souls and a place where Hawaiian royalty received training. If you are needing the amenities and creature comforts of modern hotels, this is not the place for you. If you are adventurous and are willing to unplug and tune into nature then this nature temple will be paradise. You will wake up to beautiful sunrises and the sounds of nature.

      The 2.5-acre sanctuary is a living food forest with coconut, papaya, banana, avocado, starfruit, orange, lemon and lime trees, a garden full of organic greens and passion fruit. Black Swan Temple Maui also has giant bamboo, exotic tropical flowers, and gardens. Moreover, the temple has gorgeous Indonesian art, statues, and fountains throughout. Black Swan Temple Maui is somewhat rustic and does not have air conditioning.

      In general, Black Swan Temple Maui has good cell service, especially for Verizon. With satellite internet which is not the strongest service. It is recommended that you plan on unplugging and taking a retreat from the internet during your time here.


      Black Swan Temple has simple yet beautifully appointed Balinese cabins as well as a suite with a private bathroom. These cozy cabins are nestled in the tropical garden creating privacy for each. These cabins are somewhat rustic and have a shared bathroom and an outdoor shower. There is a lovely suite also available with its own private bathroom. There are limited satellite Wi-Fi and no television. There is a communal kitchen, office space, and a far infrared sauna that is also available for the guests. Classes and workshops take place in the beautiful sanctuary.


      The retreat is all inclusive of gourmet raw food that will tantalize your taste buds, rejuvenate your mind, and allow your body to cleanse without feeling deprived.

      For breakfast, you can expect fresh fruit, raw pastries, fresh nut milk, superfood smoothies, and cold pressed coffee (yes, you can have coffee). For lunch, you will anticipate rich and innovative salads, raw chips, and spreads. For dinner, you will look forward to full spreads showcasing raw food twists on items you never knew could taste so good vegan will let alone raw.

      Heather and Donny Regal are the founders of the Black Swan Temple and the Mystical Alchemy prayerformance group! We offer sacred sound healing, yoga, Aerial Yoga Play, high vibrational plant based cuisine retreats out of our beautiful nature sanctuary in the lush tropical part of Maui, Hawaii!!!


      This place is magical! Donnie and Heather were perfect hosts. We learned about Non-violent communications and singing bowls. Both of their voices are heavenly and the accommodations fantastic.
      By Suzann R for Suzann & Gary Mini Retreat on May 22, 2024
      It was absolutely EPIC - ticked all the boxes I could have imagined and then some. Accommodation was amazing, the lovely garden that Heather & Donny live in is so wholesome, you feel like you are in your own little Oasis. Delicious breakfast served every morning, and YUM plant-based lunches. Honestly some of the recipes I still make at home (and definitely recommend Heather & Donny's recipe book for more). It really felt like I was coming home to family. The retreat itself was a wonderful experience. From the morning Yoga, Aerial Yoga and Sound Baths, to the evening Circles, Ceremonies and Sound Baths, it was an all-round incredible experience. I also have to point out that you won't experience a class like the ones with Heather & Donny anywhere else, as Donny plays live music while Heather teaches and guides you through the practice. An absolutely magical experience that makes each class as unique as the people within it. I also want to mention that there is plenty of free time to integrate the experiences and explore the island. During my entire stay with Heather & Donny I managed to get around Maui and see all the places I wanted (like Hana, Haleakala Volcano Crater, town, some beaches, etc.). I will definitely be back, and if you're thinking about heading there - I highly recommend it. If you're still reading this, make sure the thing you do after this is book your retreat (and tell me how it went!!). :)

      I had a great week with Heather and Donny. The meals were amazing, I actually purchased a cookbook at the end of the week so I can recreate some of my favorite meals and try some new ones at home! During my free time they offered a cold plunge, hot tub with clay and also had a sauna available. Free afternoons left me with time to explore the island a bit and Heather and Donny had plenty of recommendations! Would love to return one day.
      By Heather G for 6 Days/5 Nights Feb. 26-March 2, 2024 YOGA & SOUND HEALING | Maui HI on Mar 07, 2024
      The retreat was beyond my expectations! I got from it more than I could expect. Infinite inspiration, lots of self-understanding and lots of love for me and my body. I already experience positive effects from it and will experience more in the next few months! I highly recommend it to everyone!
      By Nina K for 6 Days/5 Nights Dec. 11-16, 2023 YOGA & SOUND HEALING | Maui HI on Feb 16, 2024
      Thank you so much Nina for your beautiful testimonial. We are so happy that you received so much value out of our program and that two months later the transformation is still deepening for you! <3 xoxo

      This was a wonderful experience! Besides all the experiences an Egypt trip can offer, we had multiple private entrances to temples and the Great Pyramid along with meditations in sacred places that only this spiritual couple could offer. Mohammed is the best guide while also finding comfortable places for us to rest while sightseeing. The hotels are top notch, the boat was our floating oasis between activities and the food was great. I wish I could do this trip again!
      By Scot M for 15 Day Ancient Egypt Spiritual Pilgrimage on Feb 04, 2024
      We loved having you both on our pilgrimage! Thank you for bringing your sacred presence. Yes, come on another one! Please!
