Mahalo Maui: Full Moon Wellness Retreat
September 29th – October 4th, 2020
Maui, Hawai’i – Wailea Inn
Grassroots Yoga invites you to celebrate gratitude on their Mahalo Maui Full Moon Wellness Retreat! Experience pure bliss and peace of mind through sacred wellness techniques, including daily yoga, meditation, nourishing wholesome meals, and a full moon cacao ceremony. A personal transformation magnified by the magical island of Maui!
Step into your true self while honoring life’s beauty. Your hale (home) for the stay is the Wailea Inn, a luxury private estate located across the street from two of Maui’s best beaches for surfing, stand up paddle boarding, and snorkeling! Time no longer exists on the island of Maui, meaning you can focus solely on rejuvenation and living with the rhythm of the universe.
Mahalo is the concept of gratitude and respect, a fundamental component of Hawaiian culture for far longer than the origin of the word. It is used to express every day thankfulness, as well as a deeply-felt appreciation. The word is rooted in a wider, deeper gratitude for the world around you. Mahalo will be an influential theme within your Maui immersion. You will even have the opportunity to practice gratitude in action on the island by volunteering with our non-profit partner, RAKlife!

Autumnal Equinox and the power of practicing with the full moon
On October first, the first full moon since the Autumnal Equinox, you will channel the mana (energy) of this magical moment, taking time to reflect and journal about what you are harvesting. Through consciously linking our awareness to Mother Earth’s cycles, we will deepen our understanding of our own cycles.
The ebb and flow of the moon influences the mind, body and heart (seat of the soul). We see it by observing the tides of the ocean. This is a time to draw from the lunar qualities of reflection, intuition, introspection, femininity, receptivity, and illumination, shifting our meditation into the intuitive and subconscious parts of ourselves.
This day will be a day of detoxification and intermittent fasting. We will treat our bodies to cleansing nourishing foods in the morning, a sunset moonrise cacao ceremony, mahalo meditation, gong bath, and chanting/singing. As an Integrative tool of empowerment, fasting and detoxification allows us to go inward and feed our soul. Providing an opportunity for connection and reset, offering many healthful benefits. Strengthening your integration with our sacred cacao ceremony as a result. Cacao ceremonies are a medicinal healing practice for the mind, body, and spirit. Cacao increases the energetic field of our hearts, only to be amplified when joining together. By ceremoniously drinking cacao as a group, the collective energy shifts to the same vibration. It is a time to find clarity and inspiration for where you are in your life.
By combining these practices with the added bonus of sending our technology into hibernation, you will experience 24 hours of freedom. Absolute Samadhi (yogi bliss).
“Ahuwale ka po’okela i kau hana ia ha’i.”
(It is through the way you serve others that your greatness will be felt).
Mystical, Magical, Maui
You are 100 steps from caramel-colored sand and sapphire blue seas. There are dolphins dancing in the distance, while the carapace of honu (green sea turtles) glisten amongst the rocks— you have found paradise. In September the daytime high averages within the 80s F, and at night a dip into the 70s F. Hawaii’s most pleasant ocean temperatures are at this time of year. The island air and salty sea brings out a special glow in those it touches. There is an undeniable magic in the air.

The perfect day
It started with an ocean sunrise meditation. A gentle yoga flow on lush grass. The birds sang as you floated into bird of paradise.
You will forever hold onto that moment, when your breath and mindful movements aligned with the nature surrounding you.
You are now lounging on the warm sand at Cove Beach, the condensation of a finely crafted beverage made of local ingredients cools your palm.
You dream of starting every day in this fashion, but retreat to basking in your gratefulness of this present moment.
Afternoons are for you. Explore the island, join a group hike, relax on the lanai (balcony, patio), or in the private villa’s pool.
Wander back down to the beach for some stand up paddle boarding or snorkeling with brightly colored butterfly fish and turtles.
A farmer’s market, shops, cafes, grocery stores, and beachside running path are all within casual walking distance.
Nourishing, healthy meals will be whipped up daily by our private chef. Enjoy ono grindz (delicious food), with the tropical flavor of the island.
“The loveliest fleet of islands that lies anchored in any ocean.” -Mark Twain
Haleakalā Volcano Sunrise & The Road to Hana
Start your day with an experience unlike any other as Haleakalā National Park awakens with a bright, beautiful sunrise to reveal breathtaking views over Maui’s volcanic crater. The Haleakalā National Park Sunrise tour is the #1 rated tour experience on Maui and is an adventure not to be missed.
Be present in the process. The act of getting to Hana is all part of the experience. As a group we will depart as the sun rises for a privately guided tour to remote Hana. Travel a serpentine rain forest road, known to be one of the most spectacular journeys of a lifetime. Your eyes will widen as you soak in the scenes of rich jungles giving way to rugged shorelines, sea arches, black lava, and cascading waterfalls. With 59 bridges and 620 turns, this heavenly road is an adventure you cannot miss out on!
*full-day trip to Hana is included for active Grassroots Yoga auto-pay members, and is an optional add-on for non-members. Haleakala Volcano Sunrise Tour is an optional add-on for all guests.

Your Fearless Leaders
I love being on vacation traveling fuels my soul! The main difference for me was that when I was on the retreat, I loosen my grip. I was more relax and just let things happen.
It was my first retreat. The expectation was to go travel with a very good friend and discover new things. That happened and so much more. Self discovery. New perspectives. Personal growth.
After the retreat I felt a deep connection to these beautiful women I share space and time with. I feel like we have a special bond and learn from one another. They are women I look up to and every time I see them I am taken back to a special place. I also have become more aware of certain things about myself and am trying to be more consistent.
My biggest take away is cool things happen when you step out of your comfort zone.
