Itinerary

Maui Days 1-3
Soak in the Sun & Fun

  

11/30 Wednesday:  Fly into Maui

Pack your bags and join us for some Maui Fun in the Sun!!  Step off your plane and escape to one of the world's dream vacations, along the world famous Ka’anapali Beach.  Wear your favorite aloha attire, sink your feet into the sand and meet us for Happy Hour at the relaxed, open-air setting of Hula Grille.  At our Welcome Dinner, you will savor the experience of Hawaii’s unique culinary and cultural dishes, paired with unforgettable live Hula dancers!

12/1 Thursday:  Relax and Rejuvenate! Enjoy the spectacular view at your beach resort and take in the ocean air, in your serene setting.

You may explore many of the Oceanfront Boardwalk Trails.  Most are considered easy routes and are very popular for birding and walking. There are many lovely, partially paved coastal paths and climbing spots to watch for whales in Nov/Dec.

Beginning at sunset, a conch shell call and torch lighting signal will start the ritual for Lele Kawa, also known as cliff diving.  According to Hawaiian legend, the last chief of Maui, Kahekili, proved his spiritual strength by jumping from sacred Puu Kekaa (now commonly known as Black Rock) and plunging into the ocean below. One by one the torches along the beach will be lit as the diver makes his way to Black Rock. Once he reaches the summit, he offers his torch and a flower lei to the ocean and takes a plunge. 

12/2 Friday:   Rise and Shine its Java Time!!  We will start our day with a visit to a local coffee shop to smell the authentic aroma and taste of Hawaii’s own, Kona Coffee.  Roasted in small batches, Kona Coffee is a true labor of love from farm to flame to cup.  Afterwards, we will take a sightseeing tour through beautiful Maui and walk through a lovely park for a small scenic hike (approx. 1.2 miles) to view and bathe in the incredibly warm Lava Rock Pools.  

Early evening, we will visit Maui Winery, situated in one of the most remote spots on Earth — about 1,800 feet above sea level! Formerly known as Tedeschi Winery, it is Hawaii's oldest and most famous winery. Stepping onto the King’s Cottage lanai, we will sip wine and immerse ourselves in this historic estate which was built during the 1870s to accommodate King Kalākaua, the last reigning king of Hawaii.  (Wine Tasting is a la carte).

Thank you Maria and Brie. The day was wonderful. The venue great. Your teachings are so helpful to destress and detox especially during this amazing time.

This was a transformative experience with amazing people. The accommodations were beautiful and comfortable. The food was delicious. Maria is an amazing host for the Myofascial courses and had great representatives for yoga instruction. I am definitely going to go to another trip.

This trip was excellent. Maria set the tone for a wonderful, open, warm group dynamic. The location was beautiful, food was excellent, but the community is what really made the trip. Thank you, Maria!

1. Why did you sign up for the retreat? I followed Nalie Agustin since Feb 2019 as needed to find “younger” people to connect with who are living with metastasised cancer. I saw her advertise it on Insta and the dates of the June one exactly coincided with my 12 day break from infusions and blood tests = it was meant to be! 2. How were you feeling before you arrived? Very tired! 14 hours plus 4.5 hours of flying straight after immuno infusion = I am mad. But only a fever/temperature and my twin girls being sick would’ve stopped me getting on those planes!! How do you feel now after the retreat? Really great, refreshed, energised from the yoga and fascia release Healing, a bit tired from all the travel, but really not too bad. 3. What tangible takeaways are you leaving the retreat with? To practice yoga more To meditate To believe one can heal To use Fascia Release massage healing techniques 4. What 3 parts of the retreat are most memorable for you? The second sharing circle where we all shared our innermost thoughts, baggage, mother stuff, issues, cancer stuff. The first yoga practice with Emily at 8am on the first morning with the beautiful views and sounds of the sea. Having Gael as my partner for Fascia Release Healing ... she is my British metastasised TNBC partner in crime and we really connected. 5. What is the single biggest impact that the retreat has had on you? To be kinder to oneself and others and ones body and make time for you 6. If you could have changed anything about the retreat, what would you have changed? Maybe have yoga a little bit later the first couple of mornings as the people coming from US, Canada and Australia were all pretty jet-lagged! As Andros and the villas we were staying in were soo beautiful ... No need I think to arrange a Mykonos trip but the group only came to that conclusion the day before! Vassos’ cooking was amazing!! But some salt and pepper on the dinner table would’ve been a good addition 7. How would you rate the retreat venue ( 1 being sucky, 10 being amazing)? 9 7b. Would you prefer the retreat venue to be a hotel or villa? Definitely the retreat venue 8. How would you rate the food at the retreat (1-10)? 8 9. Do you have any feedback about the co-teachers facilitation style on the retreat? Anything you particularly loved or didn't love about how we ran things? I actually really liked the differences chemistry between the 2 Greek Maria’s - chalk and cheese, but a lot of love there, very entertaining. I thought Emily was an amazing yoga teacher and cancer survivor inspiration! 10. Can we use some of your words for a testimonial for future retreats? Yes
