4 Days Meditation & Yoga retreat

- This yoga retreat is available all year round -

We believe yoga & meditation is the way home, rising from duality to resting in the bliss of your natural oneness with all life. This allows you to create the space you need to detach from old programming. You will expand the home within to grow your mind and body. This is not defined by your skill level, only your desire for growth

Yoga retreat highlights:

  • Daily meditation in custom designed Balinese Meditation Pavilion
  • Daily yoga in 1000 square foot Yoga Hale with ocean view
  • Full service treatment room (massages, acupuncture, energy work)
  • Complimentary organic fruit from the orchard on the property (when in season)
  • Ocean views over the orchard


During this yoga retreat we'll be staying at Kirpal Meditation and Ecological Center (KMEC) in Pahoa, Hawaii. The retreat center offers a wonderful spiritual uplifting environment to heal and grow. Located a half mile from the beach, this ocean view sanctuary has access to swimming, fresh fruits, snorkeling and soaking in the famous thermal warm ponds.


Kirpal Meditation and Ecological Center offers guest the use of their community kitchen, fully equipped, plus organic fruit from their orchard when is season.

Things to do

The Big Island has some of the most spectacular sites to be found in all of the world! Whether you are visiting the earth's largest volcano, sitting on the rare green sands beach, or sipping on some of the Hawaiian coffee at the plantation before going to watch turtles on the beach, you will be amazed by all that we have to offer!

How to get there

From Hilo (ITO) Airport:

  • KMEC is only a 45 minute drive from the Hilo airport.
  • Leaving the Hilo Airport, turn left at the traffic light onto HI-11 / Hawaii Belt Road / Kanoelehua Avenue and go about 5.9 miles.
  • Turn left onto HI-130 / Keaau Pahoa Bypass Road continuing to HI-130 and go about 12.2 miles.
  • Turn left onto Kapoho Road and go about 2.7 miles. Continue, staying to the right, onto Pohoiki Road and go about 3.8 miles. KMEC Hawaii will be on the left.

From Kona (KOA) Airport:

  • KMEC is a nice 2.5 to 3 hour scenic drive from Kona Airport, halfway around the Island of Hawai’i, “the Big Island”, via either the northern route or the newly finished Saddle road passing Mauna Kea.
  • Make a left out of the Kona Airport and drive north on Route 19.
  • Continue on Route 19 through Waimea, down the Hamakua coast (still Route 19) until you get to Hilo.
  • Past the waterfront side of town, make a right onto Highway 11 at Ken’s House of Pancakes (sign says Volcano 30 miles).
  • Turn left onto HI-11 / Hawaii Belt Road / Kanoelehua Avenue and go about 5.9 miles.
  • Turn left onto HI-130 / Keaau Pahoa Bypass Road continuing to HI-130 and go about 12.2 miles.
  • Turn left onto HI-132 Kapoho Road and go about 2.7 miles. Continue, staying to the right, onto Pohoiki Road and go about 3.8 miles. KMEC Hawaii will be on the left.

Public Transportation from Hilo:

There is also very limited public transportation via the Hele-On county bus that leaves from downtown Hilo. This is a slow, but inexpensive option, that comes to Isaac Hale Beach Park, if you can coordinate schedules. Isaac Hale Beach Park is located approximately a half mile down Pohoiki Road from KMEC. For more information visit the Hele-On bus website.

What to bring

Bring one set of warmer clothes as it can get chilly at night with the trade winds. Also as you go higher in elevation (up to 15,000 feet!) it can get very cold and it even snows on top of the mountain!


Is Internet or wifi available? Can I check email at KMEC?
Wireless internet is available in many areas of the property. Usage is free. There are plans soon to extend wifi coverage to the Ocean Vista Cabin. The Dragonfly Cabin does not currently have wifi or internet, however common spaces around the upper village do. Large downloads are strongly discouraged (it slows down bandwidth for everyone).

How about wild animals and creatures?
KMEC celebrates life in its myriad forms. We live in harmony with the jungle environment, which means you will probably encounter harmless creatures such as spiders, geckos and occasionally mongoose. We have the least amount of mosquitos on this side of the island due to our constant trade winds, and we do provide 100% natural repellents if you need it. Our accommodations are simple and comfortable, with no televisions or phones.

Is smoking permitted at KMEC?
Smoking is permitted in designated areas only.

Do you provide transportation to and from the Hilo airport?
We offer affordable transportation for our guests. The price is dependent on the number of people in your group and number of trips necessary. Contact us for a quote on an airport pickup. The regular taxi rate is about $80 total for 6 passengers in our 7 seater minivan. The cost of pickup and drop off for your participants is NOT included in our group rates unless specified to be included.

Do I need to rent a car?
We are located 15 minutes or 8 miles from the nearest town. There are many natural attractions in the vicinity. These can be visited by arranging a paid adventure with our guide. If you prefer to explore on your own, renting a car from the airport is a good option.

Are children welcome to KMEC?

Children are always welcome at KMEC. However, we do not provide childcare. We can provide contact information for several reliable childcare providers in the area.
There is no room available for the selected dates. Please check the nearest availability for the 4 Days Meditation & Yoga retreat
