Kauai Yoga & Fitness Retreats: Frequently Asked Questions
What makes this experience unique in comparison to other retreats?
This is an all-inclusive experience. There seems to be a magical cohesive thread that weaves our experience together. The retreat size maxes out at 12 guests, making it an intimate week as we dive in and explore out. Each day builds and because Samantha guides the yoga, fitness and all the guided adventures, she can keenly and intuitively assist in the group’s constant expansion and transformation. This gets lost in a retreat where the group bounces from one teacher to the next without any space held for consistent nourishment and encouragement.
We also will not be getting wrapped up in tourist trap excursions. Our daily adventures are guided with a local, and our excursions are private and full of the aloha vibrations. If you are looking to feel more like you are experiencing the island as a local, and not as a tourist, this is the retreat for you.
Please see real testimonials, from real people throughout this page. Also, feel into the energy of the images, all of which were taken during actual retreats with Samantha on Kauai.
Where do I fly into?
The airport you will fly into is LIH (Lihue, Kauai). It’a absolutely the best little airport ever. Enjoy the warm welcome of aloha as you step off the plane, greeted by the aroma of tropical flowers carried by the refreshing trade winds.
When should I book my arriving and departing flight?
The retreat includes shuttle from the airport on the first day of our retreat at 2:00pm. The shuttle back to the airport on departure day takes place after our farewell ceremony. You will return to the airport (LIH) at noon on departure day.
Depending on where you are traveling from, it may be most ideal for you to come a day early and stay an additional day or two. Reach out to Samantha for recommendations and general advice for your extended stay.
What should I pack for the retreat?
All of the following are recommendations not necessities. If it sounds good and you have it, pack it:
- beanie hat for cold mornings or nights (winter retreats only)
- sweatshirt (it is hawaii, but it gets chilly at night and in the mornings)
- rain coat lightweight kine
- retracting walking sticks (if you use them on hikes)
- bug spray (please choose earth-friendly products for the love of our aina)
- head lamp
- bathing suit
- flip flops / sandals
- hiking boots
- water shoes
- day hiking backpack
- water bottle
- sarong is nice for hiking to waterfall so you don’t have to carry a big beach towel (towels are at house so no need pack beach towels)
- sun screen (reef-friendly)
- maybe a sun hat/cap
- hiking clothes (can get muddy on the wettest place on earth)
- yoga and fitness clothes
What if I have special dietary needs?
Our ideal is to suit your dietary needs and desires!
Food will be delicious and nutritious with an intent to eat as local and organic as possible to bring in the mana (life force) of this aina (land) in fully. It’s not uncommon to receive vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free requests, so please let us know what is needed. If you have any special dietary requests then please email firstname.lastname@example.org after you sign up so we can happily accommodate your needs.
“One of the best trips I’ve taken! Such an amazing experience, a fusion of yoga and fitness with an adventure on a tropical island! The food was amazing and my special dietary needs were catered to ( literally). Samantha has such an energetic and also healing energy, I would recommend this trip to anyone no matter their age or level of physical fitness!!” -Lindsay West
Will I have time on my own?
The retreat’s agenda is pretty full with yoga and fitness sessions, meals and daily guided adventures in paradise. I mean, you certainly didn’t come all the way to Kauai to stay in the beautiful rental home right? However, we will have time to unwind and integrate our amazing days every evening after dinner.
Can I add spa treatments to my stay?
Yes. Samantha works with some of the best therapists and specialist on the island and we can have these retreat extras booked in advance and come straight to the retreat home, at your service, for a well-deserved pampered evening to full support your body and re-treat. Pricing varies upon requests and additional services include:
- lomi lomi

“My wife and I had an amazing time in Kauai with Samantha for our honeymoon, it was such a treat! Samantha was a great guide around the island and with our yoga practice. We still carry the island with us in our practice, Samantha’s words ‘find the paradise within’ ring true whenever I am on my mat. Her helpful tips have also stuck with me as I continue my practice, even though it was only a week her instruction leaves an impression. We did so many fun things on Kauai, from hiking to waterfalls and sitting on pristine beaches, swimming in the ocean and yoga in a yurt. Samantha provided some of the most delightful food you can imagine, fresh local fruit and veggies made into something special every day. On top of everything else, our retreat was set up in what must be one of the finest spots on the island, it was simply stunning. It was clear that Samantha went all out to give us a special experience and she succeeded! We love the work this bright and passionate woman does. Highly recommend.” -Jeff Daverman
Is there WiFi?
Yes. And there will be dedicated times that we will request for electronics to be shut down unless you are using them in your room.
Is transportation included?
Transportation is included at specified shuttle times and you will not need a car while here on this retreat. If you are arriving at a time outside of shuttle pick up, contact Samantha to have her set up a taxi service for you.
Shuttle times are 2pm on arrival day and noon on departure day and the shuttle ride is included in your retreat. Then you have your personal chauffeur / guide daily too! Can you say “vacation!”
What if I’m not in the best shape of my life?
This is an all-levels retreat. Prior yoga and fitness experience is recommended but by no means are you expected to be a seasoned athlete to participate fully on this retreat.
Being able to hike on a trail for up to 4 miles will be necessary for a couple hiking/waterfall adventures, but all outings are optional. Any outings not attended, you will have the spacious retreat home alone to relax in and to fully unplug. May be a great day to bring in a masseuse if you wanna go the pampered route.
“Samantha is amazing! She creates such supportive space for anyone’s level to participate and get the most out of what she offers. Kauai is truly magical and our week this summer was epic! I can’t wait to go again — feed my soul from what she and the island give.” -Natalie Adams

18 and older. I have had ages ranging from 22-69 on this retreat.

This retreat tends to fill with all women. However, husbands are welcome and they have had the best time ever when they do attend!

Samantha is a great teacher and inspired us to continue the journey back home. We wholeheartedlyrecommend this experience forcouples.” -Tara B.
