Gorgeous views, peaceful environment, great retreats, delicious food, and friendly locals. If you’re considering going to a yoga retreat in Hawaii, or are planning your first trip to Hawaii (or are just plain curious about what it’s like), then read on for 10 reasons why you should practice yoga on one of America’s most amazing islands.
2) It’s tropical
If you’re dreaming of white sandy beaches, swaying palm trees and sunshine – then no other island is going to make you as happy as a visit to Oahu, Maui or Kauai. Spend your days hiking up volcanoes, snorkeling with sea turtles and swimming with dolphins. If you prefer activities that land-locked folks can do too, don’t worry: there are plenty of them on all three islands!
3) Breath Taking Views
Take in some of the most gorgeous views in all of Hawaii at Pohakuloa, a protected wilderness area that overlooks Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa, two active volcanoes. Breathe in fresh air and do yoga at sunrise or sunset; you will not regret it.
4) Perfect Weather
The temperature ranges between 70 and 80 degrees throughout much of year, so whether you’re looking for a refreshing swim or an invigorating hike, practicing yoga on the big island is one way to kick start your vacation right. It’s easy to get out and explore; simply walk out your door, rent a car, or book a tour. Regardless of where you choose to go on Hawaii’s big island, you can count on warm weather!
5) Warm Waters
As you swim through warm ocean waters, a feeling of weightlessness sweeps over your body. It’s a strange sensation that makes you feel as if you’re not even touching water—it’s that relaxing. Swimming laps is one way to lose weight and keep fit, but it’s only part of what makes practicing yoga on the Big Island special. You can expect more from each session here.
6) Friendly People
One of my favorite things about living in Hawaii is that people are so friendly. I’ve traveled to many places throughout my life, and it seems like islanders just have a different attitude when it comes to meeting new people. This vibe makes practicing yoga on these tropical islands even more enjoyable.
7) Beautiful Landscapes
The island of Hawaii, also known as the Big Island, is one of the most gorgeous islands in all of U.S. The green valleys and surrounding peaks are a sight to see from any place on island. If you’re looking for a place to meditate and grow spiritually, look no further than our big island!
8) Aloha Spirit Lives Here
There’s a saying here in Hawaii that aloha is more than just a greeting, but it’s also how residents show their love and kindness toward others. The spirit of aloha embodies those values that most embody our unique way of life: compassion, respect, and honor. Aloha spirit can be found at its finest right here, in one of America’s most breathtaking destinations: Island Of Hawaii.
9) Affordable Accommodations/Food/Activities
You can do yoga here for less than you could in other parts of the country, or world for that matter. It is by no means cheap, but since it’s a slower paced island, your dollar will go a lot further. The exchange rate between US dollars and local currency is also one of, if not THE best in the world.
10) Surround Yourself with Good Vibes
There’s no better place than being in a relaxed state, surrounded by pure beauty and good vibes, doing yoga. –Taryn (Yoga on Fire) , an instructor based out of Hilo, has been practicing yoga for more than 20 years.
