Our Story

Kūaloli Retreats | Robin Duryea

The year 2020 brought a momentous shift to Robin Duryea's life. While deep in meditation she received an intuitive hit that called her very specifically to the East Side of the Big Island, Hawaii. Initially met with hesitation, Robin contemplated the unexpected call for a month before summoning the courage to purchase a one-way ticket. Uprooting herself from her city life in San Francisco, where she had thrived as a yoga and meditation student and teacher, little did she know that this leap of faith would reshape everything about her life.


Upon reaching the island, Robin embarked on a journey marked by surrender, coupled with trust that something profound was unfolding, even in the midst of uncertainty and the unknown. For a year, she lived out of a suitcase, following the guidance that eventually led her to Kūaloli, the concealed jewel she now owns and cares for. 


As she delved into the intricacies of off-grid living in the lush jungle, a new chapter unfolded as she embraced the role of both custodian and host, welcoming visitors from across the globe who sought Hawaii's natural beauty and its enchanting magic. Robin takes immense joy and pride in accommodating her students and fellow teachers, offering a haven for those yearning to deepen their practice and enhance their lives by reconnecting with nature and spirit. 

Robin Duryea's unique and straightforward approach empowers you to navigate your path from your current state to your desired self and life, cutting through the clutter and guiding you with clarity and purpose.

Each day spent on this sacred land serves as a reminder to Robin of an invaluable lesson bestowed by the land itself. It whispers to her the significance of not giving up, of holding onto the belief that there is something greater in the universe providing for our needs. With even a glimmer of faith and lot of courage and patience, the seemingly impossible transforms into a realm of possibility.


In the embrace of nature's wisdom she is reminded that when we align our lives with the rhythms of nature, we open doors to profound healing and prosperity that extends to all living beings. With open arms and an unwavering sense of purpose, Robin invites you to experience the awe-inspiring beauty and enchantment of Hawaii within the haven she now lovingly cares for. Here, the profound teachings of the land gracefully merge with the nurturing attention she bestows, creating a sanctuary for personal transformation, meaningful connections, beauty, joy, healing and awe.

Robin is a long-time Yoga and Meditation teacher who extends her personalized mentorship and support to those seeking individualized guidance. She also hosts group retreats, and opens her space for others to convene and create their own retreat experiences.
