Description of Workshop:

Enjoy Hawaii’s Big Island with two teachers from San Francisco’s Naked Yoga for Men group, as well as a group of adventurous yogis. Deepen your practice and work with the island’s elemental energies in 2-3 naked yoga classes daily; hang out at the pool, sauna, hot tub, and the local black sand beach, all clothing-optional. Three healthful and delicious meals a day are included, there will be a group outing to a local area of interest, and you’ll have free time to explore your own adventures.

As one of last year’s participants wrote us:                                                                                                                     “…what I’ve brought back I never could have thought to wish for, which I find is often the case for such magical gatherings, this one due in no small part to the hard work and kindness of you and Ken.”
