I spent a week at the Mindful Balance Kauai retreat in 2013 and was blown away by the amazing experience. Alisha is very welcoming and makes every guest feel comfortable no matter their level of yoga experience. I got to meet new people and had such a rewarding experience, transforming my mind and body. There were many opportunities for planned group excursions and free time. I would recommend a Mindful Balance retreat for anybody who wants to experience yoga in a unique locale among happy, adventurous people.
