Next, get ready to take your yoga practice offshore and settle into a hatha yoga flow while you skim the surface of the water. Your instructor will guide you through poses that will help you enhance your balance and strengthen your muscles. Sync your movements with each breath and begin to wind down with a meditation session on your board. Finish your experience with a peaceful meditation to calm your mind and expand your consciousness.

Full day tour! The river experience was nice and saw some lovely flowers at the Grotto. Our Tour Guide Steve, (who missed his calling as a stand up comic) filled the day with interesting facts on the areas we visited, the culture of Kauai and choose a great place for lunch. He had our entire tour team laughing all day long.

Really great turn out for my kids. Even had my hubby get up and surf. The instructor was professional, laid back and really knew what he was doing. My kids felt so comfortable with him and he was extremely patient. Wish I would have booked again for the next day. Highly recommend. Keola was great

The boys really enjoyed the surfing lesson. Kaipo was friendly and very professional.

Steve was a great tour guide. We enjoyed everything from start to finish. Great day!

We were picked up in a luxury van at our resort and it just kept getting better!
