Maui Yoga &
Vocal Activation Retreat
April 15th - 22nd, 2022
An 8-day retreat to inspire and rejuvenate your life through singing, yoga, and nature immersion!
Join us for a restorative and inspiring week at a tropical, herbal sanctuary and permaculture farm in Maui. This retreat is an opportunity to immerse yourself in nature, while activating your yoga practice and creative vocal expression.
Here on this well-tended, 13-acre permaculture farm, you will learn about sustainable living as you enjoy organic food, grown in rich volcanic soils onsite.
-- Through our singing and yoga practices, you will have the opportunity to release and cleanse, as well as gain much inspiration and nourishment to take forward into your life.
-- Singing is a way of remembering our belonging to this Earth and to each other as human family. When we sing together, the effects are life-giving.
-- We will hike through the bamboo forest to the Seven Sacred Pools, visit private beaches, hike to Maui’s tallest waterfall, practice Thai massage, and study with a local master herbalist.
-- Every participant will receive herbal remedies, bodywork, and cleansing protocols matched to their particular Ayurvedic body type (dosha), learning how to adapt your diet and lifestyle in order to live in greater harmony.
-- In the spirit of reciprocity and deep gratitude to be able to hold retreats on these sacred lands of Maui, 10% of the proceeds will be circulated forward to support a Hawaiian land restoration project.
*We often receive the feedback that these retreats are beyond people's expectations!
What is "Vocal Activation"?
As an African proverb states:
"If you can walk, you can dance.
If you can talk, you can sing."
If you can talk, then your voice has incredible healing potential.
We will activate and explore this potential through various voice exercises.
Oftentimes many of us have had our creative expression shut down by parental or other important figures in our lives.
Through Hanna Leigh's guidance, we will reconnect with the joy and freedom of our natural voices.
We will develop a deeper, trusting relationship with ourselves through our singing voices and experience the pure enjoyment of lifting our voices together!
