New Orleans, LA (PressExposure) September 27, 2012 -- Shanti Yoga Shala is pleased to announce the completion of a successful Hawaii Yoga Retreat. Almost 20 yoga students traveled to the magical and pristine island of Maui for a week of transformation and rejuvenation while deepening yoga practices, swimming in the ocean, horseback riding through unspoiled landscape, touring volcanoes and medicinal gardens, taking beautiful hikes, sitting in meditation and enjoying delicious organic foods.
Instructors Melanie and Nathalie have a long history of working and playing together, from trips to India and Brazil to extensive yoga training and practice time. Melanie taught traditional Ashtanga classes and Nathalie taught Vinyasa Yoga classes. Together they led the group through dharma and sutra talks and immersed the group in aspects of yoga and asana that daily life does not leave much time to explore.
The week was a great success, and included accommodations, two yoga classes a day, breakfast and dinner.
