“Mirka is a master yoga teacher and therapist who has years of experience.  Maui has natural beauty and amazing energy.  Combine Mirka with Maui and add in the sangha and you have a recipe for opening, nurturing and healing that I have never experienced before.  This retreat was yoga in so many layers – the spiritual, physical, emotional and energetic taught from spirit through Mirka.  Namaste with Love!”

– Camille, Maui Retreat Oct 2021


This is a very special opportunity be in Sangha as loving community near a sweet Hawaiian ocean cove. We will greet the dawn and kiss the sunset in silent celebration of the wonder of nature.

Each day, fresh fruit will be available in the mornings, and Chef Consuelo will prepare lunch from organic local food prepared fresh in house! We will also have communal meals as well as open evenings for exploring the offerings in Kihei.Viniyoga Yoga Retreat, Maui, Hawaii, Mirka Kraftsow

Our Hawaiian hideaway, the Wailea Inn:

Tucked away on a residential side street, oceanside of S. Kihei Rd., the Wailea Inn offers privacy and convenience. Guests can walk to The Cove beach across the street and go surfing or stand up paddle boarding. At the end of the street is Charley Young Beach, a long stretch of white sand great for swimming, beach walks and boogie boarding, also a popular location for sunset wedding ceremonies. Snorkeling, whale watching, shopping, and dining at nearby restaurants and bars are some of the many activities within walking distance from the Wailea Inn. Families with children can enjoy the neighboring Kalama Park’s large playground, skate board park, outdoor roller skating rink, tennis courts, basketball courts and running paths. Surf Schools, bicycle and scooter rentals, spa treatments and a farmer’s market are just around the corner.
