The calendar of events continues to grow with Celebrated LA-based Instructor Kathryn Budig, February 27 to March 3 and World Renowned David Swenson and Shelley Washington Return for Ashtanga Yoga, June 13 to 17

Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea, the Hawaiian island’s first and only AAA Five Diamond and Forbes Five-Star resort, has literally taken the next big leap by offering two one-of-a-kind yoga retreats as part of its year-long series of Unforgettable Events.

Kathryn Budig, a celebrated Los Angeles-based yoga instructor, who teaches the Vinyasa style of yoga, leads off February 27 to March 3, 2012. At her retreat, guests will learn techniques to better connect the breath to movement, allowing poses to flow together like a choreographed dance. Widely recognized for her playful mixture of challenging classes, infectious love for yoga, and joyful personality, she teaches her students poses designed to identify, open and strengthen both body and mind. She also will demonstrate ways to make the body more graceful, accepting and flexible.

Kathryn Budig has been featured on the covers of Yoga Journal, Yoga International, Om Yoga and Common Ground. She also is a published writer whose articles have appeared in the Huffington Post, Yoga Journal, Yahoo Shine’s Living Section and MindBodyGreen.  An avid food lover, Budig is passionate about sharing healthy, organic and eco-friendly recipes.

The retreat will include five nights in a luxurious garden-view room; full breakfast daily in the resort’s DUO restaurant; four sunrise and three sunset yoga sessions with Budig including two offsite excursions to inspirational settings; a Welcome Reception and a traditional outrigger canoe closing ceremony; and “Talk Story” sessions with Budig in the Yoga Suite. Pricing for this package begins at $3,800 for a single participant.
