In 1967 the Cooke family built a lodge for themselves on land that had been in the family since 1908. This lodge now serves as the primary facility for our guests during workshops. While here you can count on sharing a room with one or two others if you come alone, or with your partner if you come as a couple. Contact your instructor who will determine room-sharing arrangements for singles and couples, as well as our available accommodations.
All bathrooms are shared, including our two outdoor shower houses. A popular highlight for many guests is relaxing in one of our outdoor claw-foot tubs. A hot bath under the stars is not to be missed.
Our guests can look forward to an experience that is simple and close to the earth. Be prepared for natural surface, uneven walking trails as you walk around the property. This requires some fitness and a willingness and ability to hike short distances up a gradual 20% incline.
Please be aware that the Hui Ho’olana is set in a camp-like environment, and that our facilities are not fully accessible for individuals with some types of disabilities. The access to most parts of the center is via natural-surfaced foot paths of up to a quarter mile on a moderate incline. Guests will need to take personal responsibility for their own physical abilities and for using flashlights for lighting during the nighttime hours.
Please print the liability release form, sign and send to your instructor before you arrive.
Karma Yoga is a practice of offering time in support of the household needs of your retreat and is an intrinsic part of living in community. Staff and guests all participate in karma yoga on a daily basis. You will each be given a small job like sweeping a deck or wiping the tables after meals. It is a fun way to feel truly a part of your group experience, and our small staff of volunteers greatly appreciates your willingness to contribute and participate in this way during your stay at Hui Ho’olana.
