We didn’t waste anytime getting on track with our yoga schedule. Jeanne Sunderland, the founder and owner of the Hawaii Island Retreat Center, greeted us and welcomed our group on the first morning. We were privileged to have a wonderfully spacious asana room overlooking the ocean. We practiced each class with the large french doors opened to allow warm ocean breezes to flow into the room as geckos scampered across the walls. David and I set a schedule offering two yoga classes a day–morning and evening including workshops. In addition, we organized an exciting itinerary for the week which featured: Hapuna Beach, nearby Hawi, Hilo, Mauna Kea Observatory, Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, and Polulo Valley.
