Experience the magic of Maui, daily yoga, meditation and sound alchemy with Jennifer Lynn, ERYT-500 and Sarah Gray, ERYT-500. Your retreat includes nature adventures, sacred ceremony, Hawaiian teachings and local farm-fresh meals prepared by culinary experts Larry Duran and Ryan Averhart. Our beach side retreat center is equipped with pool, hot tub, and a beautiful underground yoga studio. Just a few steps from one of Maui's most beautiful south-side beaches, this luxury yoga retreat is sure to soothe your soul and inspire joy.
The moment you land in Maui, we sweep you off your feet and treat you like family. We can meet you at the airport, slide you into an air conditioned vehicle, put a cool drink in your hand, and drive you to our beach-side retreat center to get you settled in. Or you can rent a car and drive yourself. Just after sunset on our first day we meet in the dining room for dinner and orientation. Our first day closes with a gentle yoga class to ease your travel-weary body.
Each day begins at sunrise with tea, coffee, juice, and light snacks. Enjoy a quiet sunrise or walk the beach as you sip your morning brew. At 8AM we meet on the mats for an energizing morning yoga practice with one of the Wisdom Flow Yoga teachers. After class we gather for brunch and plan the adventures for the day. You are free to join group adventures or stay on site to swim, snorkel, surf, schedule a massage or settle into a hammock for a good read. We meet back at 5pm for gentle yoga with pranayama (breathing exercises), followed by dinner and evening events.
A balance of group adventures and personal free time make this retreat rich and engaging and yet deeply relaxing. Our group adventures may include organic farm tour with farm-to-table lunch, waterfall hike and swim, rain forest hike with upcountry sunset picnic dinner. Special events may include hula dance performance and Hawaiian Wisdom stories, Celestial Navigation and astronomy talk. Events are always scheduled based on weather conditions and the desires of the group.
Important note: this is a very luxurious retreat. You might return home a little spoiled and will have to join us every year to get your fix of being treated like the divine being you are!
Even though the retreat center can hold many more, we accept only 15-20 students per retreat. We believe the intimacy of the group plays a huge part in the joy of the journey. We also want to assure that each person gets plenty of personal space and personal attention. Apply early to assure your spot.

Jennifer Lynn - ERYT 500 and founder of Wisdom FLow Yoga School, Jennifer was raised by nature-loving parents. She learned early on that the wisdom and glory of the divine are alive in nature, and we would be wise to follow the wisdom of nature in all we do. After a battle with level 4 cancer at age 28, Jennifer radically changed her life priorities and started a path of karmic clearing and joyful growth. Her first yoga class brought a profound out-of-body experience that awakened her sleeping soul. She has been on a path to share the gift of self-realization through yoga ever since. Jennifer believes it is through the reverant exploration of our brilliant bodies that we discover our divine roots. Jennifer has taken over 2000 hours of trainings and workshops with masters like Richard Freeman, John Friend, and Desiree Rumbaugh. In the Wisdom Flow Yoga Teacher Trainings Jennifer teaches alignment principles based on the sacred geometry of the body and sees our practice as a means to align more deeply with body, planet, cosmos and Love.

A note from our founder...
- Jennifer, Wisdom Flow Yoga founder
Wisdom Flow Yoga School was founded in 2007 by Jennifer Lynn. With an engineering background, Jennifer appreciated the precise alignments of styles like Iyengar and Anusara, but also felt the importance of celebrating the flow of spirit through joyful movement. Wisdom Flow Yoga blends the Yang elements of organized structure with the Yin of dance-like flow. Structure must align with the laws of nature in order to be strong and sustainable, yet too much dogma can pinch off the organic flow of the heart. Wisdom Flow Yoga embodies a balance of precise alignments and core-centered movement with a playful dynamic flow that keeps the pathways clean, clear and strong, and the song of the heart coming through. In our training students learn a set of elegant alignment prinicples based on the sacred geometry of the human body. We learn to balance these principles in all poses. We learn to ride the flow of breath as the vehicle of awareness to keeps us exploring and refining our body-architecture towards healing and joyful growth.
