  • Description


    My career is body work and instructing yoga. I live in a small village, Kukuihaele on the Big Island of Hawaii USA. My family has an acre of land with beautiful ocean views across horse pastures. There is a rental, our home and a small yoga and massage studio. We have an organic vegetable garden, fruit trees. The property is non smoking.

    Waipio Valley is 1/2 mile down the road. This historic valley has beautiful hiking, black sand surf beach and river for swimming.

    I have many interests, yet great food, healing, health and exercise seem to have priority. I am learning the ukulele and some ballroom dance.

    Being here has changed many lives for the better. They may be invited to explore other areas of the island, volcano and the white sand beaches, the warm ponds of Kapoho or hikes and camping in the valley. Night fires and Bacci balls in the moonlight with open conversations are enchanting. Healings take place. We work and play hard ;-)

  • Help


    Mainly bio-dynamic gardening, weeding invasive species, organizing, cleaning and mulching with wood chips around trees.

    Important is the positive compassionate mind and thinking you cultivate always, with loving kindness towards your self and others....including the plants.

    Please only inquire if you are 24 years+

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Hawaii has many beautiful beaches and camp grounds to explore. Often I travel to the white sand beaches of South Kohala where there is snorkeling, swimming and hiking. Skies are clear for star in the world. Telescopes on Mauna Kea at 13,000 ft. offer new moon star gazing. There are no big cities on this island. Active volcanoes and warm ponds and two national parks are great adventures here.
    The Big Island of Hawaii has every climate except Sahara desert and arctic.
    I have been blessed to travel many places. Living in Hawaii these last 41 years...there is no place like home!!!
