12-19 February 2018

Join us for this once in a lifetime experience to swim with wild dolphins in this sacred yin yoga retreat in Hawaii. This is your chance to fulfil your bucket-list dream of swimming alongside beautiful wild dolphins, giant sea turtles, magical manta rays and possibly whales during your yoga retreat.  This is a unique opportunity to fully immerse yourself into the healing vibrations of the dolphins and humpback whales of Hawaii. February and March are the only times of year the Humpback whales are around as this is their migration time.
