Dance Your Heart And Soul On The Big Island Of Hawaii!
This 6 night retreat features yoga, dance, poetry exercises, and guided meditation with plenty of time to relax and rejuvenate. Kalani retreat center is the perfect location to unwind with lavish pools and gardens, nourishing cuisine and comfortable accommodations. Start your days with morning yoga and a guided meditation to clear your mind. Spend the afternoons dancing Soulsweat style to invigorate your body and open your heart. Indulge your senses with guided poetry writing, and spark your sense of adventure as we explore the Big Island’s hidden treasures of black sand beaches and geo thermal pools. If you are ready to feel an emotional release, take a soul affirming journey in a joy filled and playful environment, this retreat is for you!
SoulSweat is for adults with all dance backgrounds – you will feel energized and healed by this dance. SoulSweat touches on your emotional, spiritual and physical body by encouraging you to let go, forget about what it looks like, open up and have fun! If you are looking for a high impact workout that has an emotional and spiritual focus – this is not about tightening your abs or counting calories – this is a life affirming dance fitness class for everyone! Lucy Wallce will be guiding!
Just like with dance, poetry writing is a wonderful adventure, allowing us to indulge in both wild leaps and small steps of imagination, to satisfy some yearnings for pattern, mystery, freedom and release. Each day during the SS retreat we will gather after dancing and write spontaneous poetry. The informal sessions will be facilitated by Gayle Nosal, long time SS dancer, poetry enthusiast and writer.

ABOUT YOUR FACILITATOR
Lucy Wallace, MA started teaching dance ten years at Alchemy of Movement. In 2010, Lucy bought the studio and continued to teach SoulSweat throughout the week. Her classes are cathartic, high energy and celebratory! You will feel inspired while you forget that you are exercising!
In March of 2015, Lucy founded Dance 2B Free with the mission of sharing the healing power of dance with women in prison nationwide. Their program launched at the Denver Women’s Correctional Facility in July of 2015 and has grown into weekly classes and a teacher-training program. We are expanding into Pueblo, CO, York, Nebraska and Honolulu, Hawaii with our Teacher-Training program.
