"Sound healing and yoga in the jungle. Retreat not really!"

The aerial yoga and the guests, and the young couple that worked there as help.... they did the cooking and yard work.

In addition they both made me feel welcome and I felt like I was with family.

I liked my cabin and the view from my window of the lush forest. I liked the beauty of the area and the stars at night.

The food was healthy but simple.

Meals were special and memorable; yoga instruction by Heather was patient and helpful; incremental progress made each day. Great suggestions on adventures on the island after the yoga instruction each day.

"Living in the jungles of Magical Maui "

The retreat over all was fantastic! I fall asleep to the sound of soothing rain fall, woke up to birds sings love songs and everything in between was pure magic! I felt so at home with Heather and Donny. It was like I was visiting family; priceless experience. I loved the music! Donny is great on the keyboard and I love the songs he sing. its apparent that he loves creating beautiful music. Heather and Donny's sound Baths where unbelievable! I was bathed in such loving and coherent energy. It was perfect for me. I'm an earlier riser and love a lite and yummy breakfast. we had fresh pineapple, apple bananas, steel cut oatmeal, boiled eggs, Heather's "Chocolate Coffee", Lemon water, fresh nuts, and more! I used the sauna after breakfast followed by 2 hours of yoga/ sound baths. by the time lunch rolled after I was starved and ready to chow down on Heather's yummy meals. We had great conversations and heather pretty much planed out my days. she sent me to the coolest places and I didn't really have to think about much of anything for 8 whole days! what a gift! The yoga was a great warm up before the swing work. my body was loose and ready to rock. The Aerial was the most fun workout I've ever had! once I learned to trust the swing I was free to play and explore how far I could take it. I look forward to continuing.

"Magical Place!"

Coming to this retreat was a very last minute get-away and I had very little idea of what I was getting into. At the end of my 6 days here, I felt refreshed, centered, lengthened! and so inspired. I'd say that was a transformation! Heather and Donny are both generous hosts; amazing vegan meals (see all the other reviews! it's true!), mini concerts every day, and hanging upside down was seriously life-changing, among other life-changing gifts I have received during my time here. Heather is an incredible spiritual teacher and a healer. This is truly a place for spiritual retreat. I am so grateful to have found this place.

"Perfect balance of yoga, sound healing and delicious food"

Heather and Donny were so welcoming and supportive. Food was to die for. I have now decided to convert my family to a mostly vegan/ vegetarian home.

"A Great experience!"

I loved the variety of transformational healing sessions. I loved the meditation/guided journeys too! It was a nice surprise to play the piano and gain a new perspective on music theory/vocal lessons!

"An Enlightening Experience "

Words cannot describe how beautiful and sacred of a place Heather and Donny so graciously lend to others on this retreat! They're both very welcoming hosts and talented human beings! The retreat is very relaxed and not a tight, rigid schedule like most yoga retreats. The living space is beautiful. I woke up to the sun rising from out of my window every morning! The retreat also allows you time to explore the island and Heather was always great with advice and making sure you had what you needed. The food was nothing short of amazing! I ate so well and felt so energized by all of the fresh food.

Heather is very gentle with her yoga approach but also very encouraging. The aerial yoga play is amazingly relaxing and always brought laughter and joy to everyone's face! Heather did a wonderful job at making this yoga just as it is, playful. Her guided meditations during sound healing were an out of body experience for me. She really does a wonderful job of connecting your conscious mind with the unconscious.

Donny's melodies and tunes will be stuck in your head in a good way! I don't think I will be able to practice my own yoga without replaying some of the words in my head! He does a wonderful job of matching the music to the flow of the yoga and adds to the playful side of the aerial. The sound healing accompanied by the music makes for an all around out of body experience. It makes you realize how impactful music really can be on the mind,body, and soul.

A fantastic experience! It brought me to a deep place of stillness and healing. My favorite parts were Aerial yoga, Donny's music and Heather's cooking :-) I also, benefited from Donny's vocal coaching. The itinerary was Perfect. I'm happy we got to do a full moon ceremony too.

I had an incredible experience at the Mystical Alchemy Retreat in Maui. Heather and Donny are amazing hosts, opening their sanctuary and grounds to those that are looking for support, growth and love. I had no idea that I would experience so much self-discovery during my stay, and I certainly attribute those findings to the experience they have so carefully cultivated. The food was absolutely delicious, the aerial yoga classes were fun and challenging and the sound healing broke through mental walls that I hardly knew existed. I came to this place and was asked to set intention - not knowing that I would learn so much over the course of my stay. But every day their conversations of support, their guided meditations and sound healing acted as valuable tools in breaking through that intention - where I ultimately found strength and peace. I was especially grateful for the physical healing that took place - as the aerial yoga/mat work was able to heal my sciatic nerve, leaving me pain free. My body was grateful for the fresh fruits growing on the property and the way they were used in my meals. My mind was clear - and thankful to be able to let so much go. There truly is a mysticism around these grounds. It is a beautiful connection that Heather and Donny create with the land, the island history and their guests. I would not have changed anything about my experience except I am kicking myself for not attending the sound healing workshop where Heather was teaching everyone to play the bowls! I am so thankful for the experience and would recommend this retreat to anyone interested in self care and self discovery!

Thank you from the inner most part of my heart for all that you have graciously given me on this trip. You are both beautiful human beings and I will forever be grateful that our spirits crossed paths.

Heather, I will never forget how nurtured I felt from the moment I arrived by your kindness, your compassion and your gentle way of being. You've given me so many tools as a future aerial teacher but also within my own practice. I will never forget your words of guidance physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually during our yoga and sound healing practice. You have a gift! I will also never forget your amazing food. :-)

Donny, your melodies and tunes will carry on with me wherever I go. I am so grateful to have met a musician that clearly radiates the passion for it. Your kind words and welcoming spirit is just what music feels like!

Somehow, someway, I now I'll be back here. You have helped me gain clarity within and feel strong enough to face my challenges. Thank you for "guiding me on my way."

My stay at Maui Mystical Alchemy Retreat was exactly what I needed to start my healing journey. Heather and Donny are amazing hosts. I had the privilege of staying while Heather's mother was visiting and she was such an inspiring beautiful person, just like her daughter. At first I was nervous since I was traveling alone and new to yoga. They all welcomed me with open arms and calmed my anxieties. Each day I learned more about nourishing my body and practicing mindfulness. Heather is a very talented and patient yoga instructor; she is able to cater to all different levels. I was completely new to Aerial Yoga and she made me feel like a pro! I had a blast learning new poses and by the end of the week I was the veteran in the class. I also challenged myself to complete the Athlete's Transformation Cleanse and Heather was there to guide me every step of the way. The delicious vegetarian lunch was my favorite part of the day. The itinerary leaves plenty of time for sightseeing and exploring the lush and beautiful area. I had fun adventures, met kind and generous people and learned so much about myself. I ended my stay with my confidence soaring, a healthy body, and tranquil soul. I can't thank Heather enough for all the love and support!!!
