THE DEEPER MEANING OF ALOHA
In Hawai’i it is common to hear the word Aloha. It’s often used as a greeting or farewell and in expressing love. But the word means even more, it is a way of life and has many parallels to the deeper meanings and philosophical underpinnings found in Yoga.
Aloha, contains a deeper meaning and explanation of our place in the world and a code of ethics to help us with our interactions in the world. This can be found within the root words that make up Aloha.
alo, 1. sharing 2. in the present
oha, joyous affection, joy
ha, life energy, life, breath [prana]
“To consciously manifest life joyously in the present.”
We can translate this literally as “The joyful sharing of life energy in the present” or simply “Joyfully sharing life”.
The spirit of Aloha was an important lesson taught to children about the world of which they were a part:
“Aloha is being a part of all, and all being a part of me. When there is pain – it is my pain. When there is joy – it is also mine. I respect all that is as part of the Creator and part of me. I will not willfully harm anyone or anything. When food is needed I will take only my need and explain why it is being taken. The earth, the sky, the sea are mine to care for, to cherish and to protect. This is Hawaiian – this is Aloha!”
As the children grew up this fundamental code of ethics was taught within a deeper layer of the meaning of the word Aloha. The code is derived from one of the acronymic meanings:
A, ala, watchful, alertness
L, lokahi, working with unity
O, oia’i’o, truthful honesty
H, ha’aha’a, humility
A, ahonui, patient perseverance
TIME TO RELAX
In between yoga classes and workshops you will have plenty of free time to relax and explore the incredible beauty around you. You may also like to explore other areas of Maui, enjoy world-class surfing and if we’re lucky… swim with sea turtles!
One afternoon we will take a sailing & snorkeling trip to visit world-class beaches, followed by free time to explore the local town of Lahaina.
*Please note, transportation offsite is NOT included.
YOGA & SPIRIT OF ALOHA
Yoga deeply aligns with the Hawaiian Spirit of Aloha – both are a way of life and offer a holistic view of our connection to Nature and one-ness with all of creation. Yoga offers practices of physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being underpinned and aligned with the deeper meaning of the Aloha Spirit.
Asana workshops focus on technique and alignment – on this retreat we will explore various inversions & postures to unlock your hips, shoulders and spine.
Breath work (pranayama) offers opportunities to increase your energy, improve your focus and experience greater harmony with the innate intelligence of the mind, breath and body.
The practices of yoga are designed to unlock joy and your innate ability to manifest beauty & abundance in your life! Our workshops and meditations will enable you expand your knowledge, connect more deeply to your own natural source of energy.
This retreat is open to yoga students of all levels. A general level of fitness is required.
