AMAZING, INSPIRING, NUTRITIOUS, WELL ROUNDED
I love the yin/yang of Dan & Stacey. Their energy is just totally amazing and they work so perfectly together. Stacey is hugely knowledgable, shares information and a lot more generously. I did not do the immersion version of the course because I was commuting, unfortunately it meant that I missed out on bonding time with the group. But, even still, this was just what I needed...magic! The location is incredible and the yoga studio is incredible as it incorporates nature with fresh air and birds singing in the background.

Mahalo, mahalo!! This retreat has been SO very special & incredible. From the moment Stacey picked us up with a warm embrace, we have been on a spectacular journey. Stacey & Dan have created a magical home and sanctuary to explore your mental & physical health. All details have been carefully and genuinely thought out and it made us feel so welcomed. The food was so nutritious and absolutely delicious. The yoga classes were the best I've taken in such a beautiful surrounding. The wholesome yoga, coupled with daily meditation shifted me and guided me to the next step of my journey. I will take what I have learned from the sensational retreat and do my part to make the world a better place. I am so happy & feel fortunate the universe led us here. Thank you, Namaste.

Such a restorative, calm and centering experience! I immediately felt right at home, welcomed and encouraged. Not truly knowing what to expect, each day I felt that I was introduced to a new outlet, a new approach. I'm excited to implement the new tools I have gained and new approach to yoga, meditation, and diet into my life. I feel motivated and excited to experience my life in a new way!

Absolutely wonderful! The retreat did wonders for me. I didn't know how much stress I was holding on to until we came here. Over the 5 days I started to find myself again, and relearn how to love and care for myself. This week gave me so much perspective and has allowed me to feel excited for life! I got to rest and renew and now get to take home valuable tools that can better my health, my life and my relationship with myself.

Exactly what I was looking for!
Some time to quiet my mind and find some peace.
I loved that everything was done for a purpose and with intention. From yoga, meditation, delicious meals and a tea bar! I'm going to take some precious advice and routines home with me. Thank you, Stacey & Dan. I think I'm going to gift a week of your kindness to my sister.

Phenomenal! I feel so rejuvenated, not just physically but emotionally as well.
The center grounds and the yoga studio are so gorgeous, and so well cared for. The food was delicious. I loved the hot tub and cold plunge! The simplicity and intimacy that a smaller group size allows is perfect. What an incredible vision that you have turned into a gift for others.
Thank you SO much!

Thank you from the bottom of a grateful heart!
My purpose for attending was a physical and mental rest. The moment I arrived I could feel the spirit and magic unique to this place. The whole experience met and exceeded my purpose for attending I have felt totally cared for with unconditional love. Tea all day, and constant variety of activities made 5 days flow with fun while we were learning.
Julie D. Minnesota,
It has been such a pleasure spending the week with you two sweet souls!
You have inspired me to create my own healing sanctuary. I enjoyed every session and felt myself yearning for more. My goal now is to integrate practice into my daily life as well as practice with others. It was such a delight getting to know you both and I look forward to our paths crossing again!

What a nourishing experience! I feel like I am going home renewed in body, mind, and heart & spirit!! There was so much gentle healing yoga that my body aches are better than when I started. The discussions have me filled with such knowledge & inspiration, I can't wait to get home & start putting things into practice! Stacey & Dan, you are wonderful hosts & I felt welcomed into your family this week.
Thank you for manifesting this reality!
ABSOLUTELY BLISSFUL! Thank you Stacey & Dan for everything. Such a beautiful location and property. Stunning rooms and relaxation areas for comfort and downtime. The eye for detail and design even from the small wall hangings and quotes around the house definitely don't go unnoticed. Loved the yoga & meditation, and the sound healing was my favorite! Also loved the morning juice and excursions too!
Thank you greatly, Stacey & Dan! Gratitude abounds. Such a beautiful, therapeutic, holistic experience. I could not have wished for more! The yoga sessions from you both were so beneficial for me, not only physically, but spiritually as well. I loved the focus on breathing, and learning the benefits. I'm inspired to continue a renewed yoga practice! The outdoor studio and nature are such a treasure. And the vegan food! Each meal was delicious. I depart feeling very relaxed, and so renewed in my future intentions. Thank you!
This retreat was so incredibly beautiful and deeply relaxing. Stacey and Dan are the most kind-hearted, genuine and inspiring people who care so much about what they do. During this retreat, my heart opened up to so many new things, and I have learned an immeasurable amount of knowledge and wisdom. I am forever grateful for this opportunity to deeply heal my mind, body, and soul. I will carry this feeling with me as I grow and experience life. Thank you for this amazing time on this beautiful island!
Thank you so much, my experience was great! I did not know what to expect, but the house is beautiful; definitely a place to relax, let go and heal. Every inch of the scenery is beautiful. The yoga studio is gorgeous. Meditating in nature and listening to the birds, the ambience, and workshops were just what I needed! What made the experience even more special was Stacey and Dan. They are both so friendly, calm, and true healers. Thank you for what you do, you have helped me to believe that dreams are possible to achieve, and you have given me the tools to jumpstart the next chapter of my life.

Dan and Stacey have created a truly relaxing retreat. The outdoor studio is a spotless, well-appointed environment that allow yogis to feel the mana and the fresh breezes while practicing yoga...and more! And Stacey's chanting of Hawaiian Oli is a heartfelt experience. They definitely have their guests' comfort in mind. In fact, there are places to read or meditate throughout their amazing property. Should you be lucky enough to enjoy a meal, the variety of fabulous vegan food is sure to satisfy every appetite. Stacey and Dan express their love of and connection to Hawaii in everything they do. They love to share the beauty of the Big Island.
I hope you enjoy Hawaiian Healing Yoga as much as I did.
This retreat has been more than I expected! My decision to attend came at a time where I needed help in figuring out my purpose in life. To renew my future and learn to embrace it. The physical practice was healing and welcomed, but more importantly, our conversations about proper nutrition, and the mind/body connection...*I LEARNED SO MUCH* Having never ate vegan before, I was grateful for doing so. The meals were tasty, and I was always full, never ever hungry. I loved the encouragement to pursue my passion! Thank you both, a perfect week!
Stacey & Dan are absolutely the best retreat hosts! I'm so glad I had the opportunity to experience this retreat for myself. The meditation and daily yoga was amazing, and the adventures we made to the beaches and Hawaiian sites made me so very happy inside. Dinner on the beach was marvelous! Five days here have inspired me to live a healthy, happier life.

My 5-Day Sacred Rest and Renewal Retreat has honestly been one of the best experiences of my life.This retreat allowed me to SLOW DOWN. With the craziness of 2020, I wanted a break from all the daily stress back home. I truly enjoyed the Vipassana silent time in the morning. It was a peaceful time to look within myself, to slow down at the beginning of the day and to set the pace and a good intention for the rest of the day. The morning mediation at 730am was a more formal ritual to come together and sit in silence. Beautiful guided and silent meditations with sound healing allowed me to slow my monkey mind and become aware of the present moment. Dan and Stacey tailored the yoga classes to our level, yet challenged us when we wanted to try out more difficult asanas. The studio is in such a picturesque location with the backdrop of Hawaiian plants, flowers and local birds. It was truly captivating to do yoga in this blessed space every day! I really enjoyed the Transcendence Workshop which solidified my understanding of how the power of my thoughts can shape my life, my relationships, and my whole world. As well, our day trip to Pololu Valley was a great day to become one with nature and to take in the breathtaking views of beautiful Big Island!I can't say enough about how kind-hearted Stacey and Dan are. They made their home extremely welcoming to us with our own private and spacious bedrooms - perfect for some alone time! The vegan meals were extraordinary! From avocados and bananas picked fresh from their trees to delicious vegan soups and curries, I looked forward to their exquisite cuisines every day. Also, there was always a selection of tasty organic teas to drink throughout the day! I worked out daily in Dan's gym and daily runs and walks in the Ranch were perfect for soaking up some of the morning Hawaiian sun!After this week, I honestly feel a sense of healing has occurred with my own mind and body. I would greatly recommend this retreat to anyone looking to have some tranquility in their life and a desire to practice yoga and meditation in the magical and energetic land of Big Island.

I'm not overstating when I say that this has been one of the most wonderful, and life changing experiences of my life. I've learned so much and I feel so restored. The pace of the retreat is soothing yet engaging and the curriculum is amazing. I feel that I have been given many new tools to use for building a healthier and more joyful life. I really don't have the proper words to express what five days here have meant to me and given me. I thank you so very much and will be back!
What an amazing five days of physical, mental, and spiritual growth. You have created a beautiful space of peace and tranquility. The gentle yoga and meditation practice are just what you need to go within. Being in nature is truly healing. The yoga deck and property itself is beautifully done and radiate the love you have for Hawaii. The workshops were very educational, you have a true gift for teaching. Your passion and knowledge for health and wellness resonates through you into this space and into others. You have truly found your calling, your purpose in life, thank you!! Loved the field trips, and the food was scrumptious, definitely write the cookbook! Christine...Florida, USA.
Had the best time here!I thoroughly enjoyed all the inspirations about yoga, meditation, and how to live a happy and healthy lifestyle. The retreat helped me a lot to relax and calm down. I found some deep inner rest. However, the best part of this retreat was how I felt I was around friends. The personable and respectful atmosphere made this so enjoyable, and I loved all of our interesting and inspiring conversation. I will absolutely recommend your retreat! Thank you SO much Stacey and Dan!
My Retreat was more than I expected! I loved the experiences that Dan & Stacey created for me in and out of the yoga lodge. Just being in your beautiful retreat space was relaxing and renewing. You took such good care of me and that in itself was such a wonderful experience. I am renewed, energized and inspired to go home and continue to learn and grown from the seeds planted here. Mahalo!

This retreat was amazing! Dan & Stacey are incredible hosts. Everything from their beautiful home, the meditations, delicious yoga, to the powerful teachings well beyond my expectations. I am a psychologist and yoga instructor myself and I learned so much that I am excited to take home with me. The silent morings and the hot tub/cold plunge in the evenings were an extra delight!
H.Greene...Oahu, HI. USA
You have truly created a space of healing and reconnection for body, mind, and soul!
Thank you both for the healing intention that you have brought to the island and retreat space.
The Hawaiian chanting you did really resonated in my body and my soul so deeply. The sound energy healing with the bowls were amazing! I did the commuter package for the five days and now I wish I stayed on property, the energy here is so calming.
Very relaxing in the most beautiful space. I enjoyed all the different areas of the property and different activities we explored. Meals were delicious! and I loved the tea bar & chocolate. I actually slept very well and woke up feeling rested, which is uncommon for me. Learning about the Hawaiian culture intertwined with the yoga was amazing. Thank you so much for your genuine kindness and care..
Just what I needed! You two were so caring and genuinely concerned about my well-being. I truly appreciated you checking in on me. Learning to mediate was a great experience, and yoga twice a day was wonderful. The outings were so much fun and learning about the history and culture of Hawaii was a highlight!
