Big Island Hoopdance Retreats (Initiate and In-Depth) are annual offerings in January of each year at Kalani Oceanside Retreat. Curated and facilitated by Shakti Sunfire, along with her sister, Luna Breeze, these retreats were born of a desire to provide targeted hoopdance instruction depending on ability level, so that we can GO DEEP and be met in our hoopdance flow. Now in their fourth year, these annual events feel like a coming home; friendships and traditions have been established, and each participant walks with the afterglow of connection and shared experience. Join us and feel for yourself the magic of the Big Island!
Beginner Track : INITIATE
This retreat is for you if you're fresh in the magic of hoopdance and you're looking to LAUNCH to the next level in your practice - especially if you feel intimidated in other big group offerings! The Initiate Track is designed specifically for hoopers ranging from raw beginner to those with a basic skill set of hooping on the body with perhaps a few tricks under your belt. Set in the majesty of Big Island landscapes at Kalani Oceanside Resort, we will join together to go deep for 5 days of hula hoop play!
Advanced Track : IN-DEPTH
In-Depth is an annual intensive hoopdance retreat held on the Big Island of Hawaii at Kalani Oceanside Retreat. An intimate setting with a maximum capacity of 30 participants, In-Depth seeks to provide focused and challenging hoopdance material for advanced practitioners while holding creative and safe space for unplanned and unknown Big Island MAGIC to occur.
