This retreat is a course which bridges theory, the scientific “how” with the human “why”, and movement - yoga, dance, and structured play using poi and hoops - with the purpose of getting you back on the path of happiness, flow, and abundance. (Or, to extend that path, if you’re already on it.)
During this very unique journey, expect to discover:
- The path to re-igniting your feminine creative Inner Fire & Flow
- Creative ways to live your PASSION & Soul’s PURPOSE, guided by the WISDOM of your Sacred Womb-Heart
- Basic poi & hoop flow movements to feel AMAZING in your body and INSTANTLY TRANSFORM anxiety or depression into lightness & JOY
- Simple yet powerful techniques REPATTERN YOUR NERVOUS SYSTEM toward possibility & empowerment
- Secrets to releasing old patterns, habits, beliefs, and trauma to BIRTH YOUR INNER BLISS
- Hawaiian, Sanskrit, Native American & Divine Feminine Wisdom Teachings to enrich your life
* NaiAsana Yoga blends the basics of poi** with yoga, dance and elemental wisdom into a soulful movement meditation with neurological and spiritual benefits. This unique somatic healing practice may incorporate other flow art props such as the hula hoop. Ultimately, NaiAsana is a practice to awaken, honor, and celebrate the sacred feminine fire and wisdom within.
**Poi-dancing is an ancient movement and performance art with roots in the Polynesian culture. Modern poi-dancing involves swinging tethered weights, and sometimes fire, in various rhythmic, synchronized, geometric patterns.
Here's a highlight video of our week-long, Beauty that Transforms - Hawai'i retreat from 2015 & 2017:
We are thrilled to be bringing some of the beauty and spirit of Aloha from our heart-home of Hawaii to share with you. Together, we will inspire each other to dive deep into our hearts, and honor our truths. We welcome you in taking a huge step toward birthing a new realm of grace and beauty that transforms within and all around you.
There is no other organization or person that has more greatly affected my life than Soul Flow Alchemy and Dr. Jinju Dasalla. I almost backed out of attending the retreat because it was a time in my life when I felt deeply depressed and like a failure. I’m so thankful that I didn’t cancel my trip. I really needed to be there to help me become the person I wanted to be and let myself be me. The magic and tools you provided and the space are something I go back to every day. Your retreat brought me more peace and hope than anything I had tried before.

MEET YOUR GUIDE
Jinju Dasalla, PhD, RYT, embraces the power of dance, flow arts, and yoga as portals for somatic healing and personal transformation. Featured in Elle Magazine after her successful debut at Wanderlust 2016, Dr. Dasalla is on a mission to share the medicine of “flow” and inspire the awakening, honoring, and celebration of the sacred feminine fire and wisdom within us all. With a doctorate in neuroscience and deep reverence for ancient wisdom teachings, Jinju offers truly unique perspectives for personal growth that harmonize science, art, and soul.
Jinju co-founded Soul Flow Alchemy Institute (SFAI) with her husband, Nova Dasalla, as a platform for training and educating health professionals, individuals, and organizations on the neurological and psycho-spiritual benefits of embodied play. As the visionary leader of transformational Soul Flow Retreats, trainings, and author of upcoming book, Beauty that Transforms, her vision is of a world that remembers how simple and sweet healing can be. She holds emotional attunement as the foundation of all flow practices and believes, to love is to flow. Her classes, workshops and coaching journeys consistently call forth elements of play, possibility, and purpose to ultimately awaken one's inner fire and innate wisdom.
Since becoming a mother in 2015, Jinju is more inspired than ever by the miracles of Life and the reminders her little one brings on the true meaning of Flow.
MORE TESTIMONIALS ABOUT DR. JINJU'S WORK
Jinju has been a great help to me for over 9 years now. Recently I experienced working with a Cognitive Behavioral Therapist. The work I did with her was very helpful, but I couldn't help to think while I was working with her that even WAY back when Jinju first coached me (she was a new coach) she went over A LOT of the same stuff, and had me do wonderful and helpful exercises....similar to what the therapist had me do. Jinju's knowledge and intuition about the brain, body, patterns, moods...it has so much depth. I know now, 9 years later, she has that much more experience and her intuition has been reinforced. I recommend working with Jinju to anyone who needs some soulful direction in their life.
~ Meagan Brown Panton, Health & Nutrition Coach
You and Nova have been a huge source of inspiration to me. There have been times when I lacked motivation to keep moving forward and wanted to give up, I would think of your beautiful stories, the miracles and magic.. and I could find the strength to overcome whatever obstacles were placed in my way to reach for my life purpose.
~ KrystaLyze Glass
I just wanted to give you and Nova a special thanks for being sensitive enough to hear and meet my needs at the retreat. It was refreshing to feel validated by two respectable adults who don't know me at all, and I feel more empowered and inspired than ever . . . . I can't thank you enough for doing your work, I hope to see you again one day!

Are you trying to struggle your way through a major life transition on your own? Please, do the most loving thing for yourself and check out Dr. Jinju Dasalla - she is the embodied intersection of intellectual, physical, and emotional intelligences!
~ Jacqui Becker
Dr. Jinju Dasalla embodies the grace to honor all life as divine blessing. Her deep rooted compassion and heart felt acceptance of others creates safety and playfulness into the art of living that she masterfully cultivates. Flowing with her through one-on-one sessions, classes and workshops brings joy and stability to all who encounter her. It’s my honor to train, work and flow alongside such a vibrantly grounded being as Jinju.
~ Adria Perkins, Founder - Hawaii Yoga Institute
I didn't know what to expect by taking on a life coach, but Dr Jinju arrived in my life at exactly the moment I needed her. Luckily, my mind was open enough to let her in it because a little piece of her will forever reside there, cheering me on. I can't express how deep and genuine our connection is. She helped guide me through a really positive period of growth and also a rocky period of reflection and helped me redesign my interior world to better suit my life's purpose by inviting me to face my subconscious drives. I've been waking up happier and I'm well on my way towards living my life's purpose out loud. Thank you Jinju, from the bottom of my soul!
~ Brandon Smith, Honolulu, HI
I just have to take this moment to express my gratitude for Jinju Dasalla. Not only is she one of the most lovely beings I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing, she is also a beautiful poi dancer. She’s been my life coach since October last year and I can’t express enough how much her guidance and wise counsel have transformed me and how I process challenges. She is so gifted and I find myself greatly looking forward to each of our sessions. She’s pushed me in areas I was so fearful of and I’m amazed by the amount of self-work and healing I’ve accomplished with her assistance. I love you, Jinju.
