It's not by coincidence that Tina Pashumati James decided to do her next retreat in Molokai with Danny Paradise. Molokai'i is one of the smaller islands in the center of the Hawaiian island chain with only 38 miles long and 10 miles wide. Even with the modern pressure of development and growth Molokai'i community worked hard to maintain this small island a dreaming place. Protecting their resources and tradition. With 7,000 people on the island and one road, there isn't a single traffic jam or light to slow your travels. The mountains highest peak is about 5,200ft and there are beaches that run the coast for miles. Molokai'i is known for having the highest sea cliffs in the world at 3,900ft and being the most friendly island.

Today, the people of Molokai continue to foster a strong connection to the land, a responsibility to perpetuate the Hawaiian culture, and a love for country living that sets them apart from the other Islands of Aloha. Yogis have been establishing this strong connection to the earth for thousands of years. "Sthira-sukham āsanam"PYS II.46
With a high percentage of Molokai’s population being of Native Hawaiian descent, it’s no wonder why Molokai is sometimes known as “the most Hawaiian Island.” A visit here is like a journey into Hawaii’s past, where historic spots can be discovered today, looking much like they did hundreds of years ago.
