You deserve a break from your daily schedule and commitments. Spend a week with Nectar Yoga on beautiful Maui and feel renewed, refreshed and rejuvenated.
Your senses will be heightened by the surrounding aromatic botanical gardens with over 1000 medicinal plants. Your body will feel toned, stretched, relaxed and lighter after your week with Andrea, owner of Nectar Yoga. Executive Chef, Michelle DeLand, will prepare delicious and detoxifying meals while sharing her wealth of knowledge and industry experience.
Enjoy the award winning spa, dip in the outdoor pool, meditate in the open air yoga studio, walk through the countryside, visit the local town and art galleries, snorkeling, reading, and relaxing are just a few of the activities you will partake in during your Nectar Yoga Retreat.
During the week we will participate in distillation demonstrations and learn about aromatic plants and their healing properties.
This small exclusive retreat is your perfect getaway. Feel the warmth of the Hawaiian sun and breathe in the fresh North Pacific Ocean air this winter!
Situated inland on the second largest island in the Hawaiian archipelago, Nectar Yoga Retreat is located in Upcountry Maui with sweeping open landscape and ocean views.
Rolling hills and misty mountains unfold as cool breezes carry the scent of eucalyptus throughout Upcountry Maui. Located on the high elevations around Haleakala, the fertile slopes of Upcountry are home to ranches, botanical gardens and farms with soaring views.
There are three homes on the property exclusive to our retreat. The grounds are private and open for you to explore. The Main Villa is the largest home and accommodates up to 8 guests. The Private Villa and Private Cottage both accommodate two couples and are a romantic abode.
Each morning and evening we will practice meditation and yoga in the Main Villa’s open air studio.
You’ll experience a magic, unspoiled relaxing yoga retreat and holiday of a lifetime.
Six nights full board.
Two yoga classes per day. Open air, overlooking the spectacular view.

YOGA AND MEDITATION
Wake up to the sounds and smells of the North Pacific flora & fauna while practicing your daily guided morning meditation. Breathe in the fresh air during your morning yoga asana and pranayama (yogic breathing) class. Whether you are an experienced yoga practitioner or blossoming into your practice, you will learn to move with awareness, strength and balance. Your two daily yoga asana classes will be catered to your specific body needs. As the week progresses, we will build from a foundation geared towards taking yoga home. Your knowledge will deepen during our daily yoga discussions on methodology, history and alignment.
The goal: let go of the past, be present in the Now and, most of all, to BE HAPPY!
FOOD AND NUTRITION
Be inspired by Executive Chef Michelle DeLand and owner of Extraordinary Foods.
Michelle will lead you through a culinary week filled with new dishes and take-home inspiration. Michelle was one of the first chefs in Canada to work directly with farmers, bringing back the farm-to-table approach to restaurants. Michelle now works with one of the most high-profile families in Canada as their personal and event chef. Each meal will be an array of delicious fresh and mostly local cuisine with an emphasis on detoxifying the body. This is your chance to closely observe a professional chef and her creations.
The meals on this retreat are completely vegetarian and vegan adaptable (upon request).

Have a look at my past sold-out retreat in Greece, October 2013 HERE
“Amrita is the best yoga teacher I have ever had. She is wise beyond her years and her students feel in very safe hands – her teachings are both philosophical and physical – her approach very holistic. She is crystal clear in class and encourages people to ask questions and really explore postures and yoga teachings – and she is the only person who has manage to teach me how to meditate – there were many lightbulb moments. Dont miss an opportunity to do her amazing retreat – or other workshops. I’m looking forward to booking my next one!”
– Elizabeth, Greece Retreat 2013
“One of the best experiences I have had in my life. The knowledge Amrita shared has broadened my perspective, it has given me the power to believe in my own strength for changes in my life. Thank you so much for every minute with you.”
