Spiritual Community, Yoga & Meditation in Hawaii

Polestar is a spiritual community on the Big Island of Hawaii that offers year-round, hands-on experience in cooperative living based on the universal teachings of Paramhansa Yogananda. We offer an energizing life-style of daily meditation in Hawaii, karma yoga or service projects, hatha yoga and outdoor-adventure opportunities for those participating in our internship program, guests on vacation or personal retreat, and families and youth. People of all faiths are welcome.


“The spiritual practices, good company, great food, sacred music and all the amazing natural beauty of Hawaii made this an unforgettable time for me.”

DW — Minnesota

“It is hard to sum up in a few words how powerful every visit to Polestar is for me. It’s an altogether invigorating experience; one that always recharges my body, mind, and spirit. I find myself learning more, laughing more, and living in my body and from my heart more fully.”

CK — Nevada City, CA

“This experience changed my life. I look on life with a new perspective now – I am beginning to see each moment as a blessing and a gift.”

EP — Portland, Oregon

“I was lucky to be a part of such a special and supportive environment, even if only for a short while. I feel like I experienced a lot of spiritual growth and learned things that will stick with me for life. From the food to the smiles and the blessings over meals, you guys have helped to re-inspire a positive and new definition of religion in my heart (and I’m sure in the hearts of many others as well).”

AC, - World Traveler

“A renewing experience and complete joy!… a beautiful community that will teach you how to live harmoniously with others!”
