Hawaii Island Retreat at Ahu Pohaku Ho'omaluhia
Welcome to our first ever Dirty Girl retreat....
Yes, it's really happening!
We're so excited to offer this seven-night retreat on the beautiful Big Island of Hawaii. It's all happening Friday July 27th 2018 through Friday August 3rd 2018 (seven nights total) at the Hawaii Island Retreat Center, located on the Northern most tip of the island. Check out the photo gallery here, it's a truly breathtaking venue.
It will be a week full of Dirty Girl food, yoga therapy, meditation, Molly talks, beautiful surroundings and connecting with other Dirties in person!
You will walk away from this retreat refreshed, revitalized, restored, inspired and ready to tackle any fucking thing that life has in store for you.
Your Retreat Hosts...
Molly is really damn good at helping people eat more plants and inspiring and educating people how to mend their relationship with food and their body.
What gets her hot is helping people prevent illness and disease with the food they eat so they don't have to treat illness and disease because of the food they eat.
Molly has quite the Dirty following and this will be the first time she's doing a live event.
Molly (and Luanne) will be at the retreat the entire week, giving talks and doing what she does best, inspiring people to get their shit together, while making them laugh and bringing light and love to the process.
Michelle's unique gift lies in her ability to read and comprehend the language of the body and to deeply listen to the stories coming from the mind. Based on this information, she helps people become aware of their particular challenge, accept this as their work and develop a Yoga practice to release, modify or change the struggle, pain, disconnection, disorder or disease. Ultimately, leading to a deep connection with the life force that creates healthy balance.
As a Yoga Therapist of 25 years, she has touched the lives of over 6,000 students. She guides clients to a state of wellness from physical, mental/emotional and spiritual challenges.
Michelle offers small classroom yoga therapy classes and clinics, online classes, personal therapy sessions, Skype therapy sessions, yoga therapy teacher training, workshops on the Energy Body and retreats to The Big Island of Hawaii.
We are renting out the entire retreat center so it will be nothing but Dirties all week long!
[Space is limited to 30 participants so sign up ASAP to reserve your spot.]

Now, before you get too nervous about a full week of yoga sessions, know this.
Michelle's yoga therapy is a completely different experience from most Yoga taught in the U.S. Here’s what she has to say about her instruction:
“Yoga for me is a multi-dimensional experience, where my students work on all levels; mental, emotional, spiritual and physical. It’s all about getting to know all parts of yourself.
Even in a classroom with other students, you will stay connected to you and only work on you, at a pace you find comfortable. The practice is NOT about the pose or achieving a work out. It is a way to inform you about what’s really going on in your body and mind.
Each practice begins with myofascial release which informs you deeply where you are holding on and where to release. The release begins to relax you as we unwind from there with gentle stretches and breath work on the floor.
We then move to seated poses, then to all fours and ultimately to standing. From standing, we journey back to the floor and ultimately to deep rest.
Throughout the practice you will only go as far as you can go. I will instruct you to know your edge and how to keep yourself safe and comfortable.
My yoga practice has been described as transformational, life changing, deeply relaxing & better than any form of therapy. This practice is important for everyone, especially those with chronic pain and mental and emotional blocks.
I look forward to working with you and guiding you into a comfortable and happy space in your body and mind. That, paired with amazing plant based, Dirty Girl food, a loving and supportive community, and Molly’s inspirational words, you will leave Hawaii totally refreshed, inspired, uplifted, rested, energized and feeling powerful and strong. I can’t wait to meet you in July!” XO / Michelle
Michelle is right, her yoga classes are unlike anything I have ever experienced.
From the first time I went to one of her classes I wanted our Dirty community to experience her magic. I am thrilled to pair up with Michelle and offer this amazing, life changing, healing and empowering week in Hawaii. I would be honored if you joined us.
Here's a sample of Michelle's yoga therapy
Watch Michelle and Molly and feel free to follow along!
