Shelley Carroll and Cara Griffin are teaming up to create Ohana in this curated yoga and surf camp adventure retreat. Ohana means family in Hawaiian. The family you are born into, and the family you choose. Ohana emphasizes that families are bound together, and members must cooperate and remember one another. In Hawaiian culture, family is everything. We will create Ohana together on this magical retreat!
We are not tourists. We are visitors and travelers to this magical and special land, and this retreat will allow you to visit Maui, responsibly, ethically, and in partnership with the locals and the land.
We will practice yoga, take surf lessons with the world famous Maui Surfer Girls, explore Maui, and we will also practice Hawaiian cultural values and giving back to the land-- ‘aina.
Our adventures will include the West Maui Mountains, Iao Valley, Waihe'e Ridge, Lahaina Town, and an epic trip on the Road to Hana.
We believe in keeping Hawaii beautiful and this trip is both planned to be socially, ethically, and ecologically responsible.
