Discounted spa day benefits art programs

Circles of Light is going to treat residents and visitors to an affordable day at the spa to benefit Kaua‘i’s youth, a Circles of Light release states. All the money raised will go towards providing After School Art programs for young people on the west and east sides of Kaua‘i.

“Most of the children who come to my after-school art program in Kekaha are not able to play sports, be cheerleaders or afford extra curricular activities,” says Lisa Achuara, a Circles of Light teacher. “They arrive eager, excited and curious. The children’s gratitude for having this program shows by their presence week after week.”

Organizers say the June 17 spa day, called E Malama Kou Kino: Caring for Mind, Body and Soul, is a favorite for residents and visitors looking to relax in a friendly environment.

The event is designed to cater to guests’ desires: a beautiful, restful, and restorative setting; healthy foods; massage; live music; and yoga and art classes.

Organizers say the new Kilauea location has been a hit, with expansive ocean views from sprawling lawns, a chlorine-free pool and a covered outdoor living room area.

The basic package is just $50 and includes fresh morning treats and juice bar, luncheon buffet, swimming and live music. Participants can tailor their day with add-on preferences, including an art class for $25, a massage for $65 and yoga for $10. For $145, guests can enjoy all the add-ons.

Practitioners are licensed, experienced professionals who donate their time, the release states, including local artists, a certified yoga instructor, a gourmet chef and a variety of licensed and experienced massage practitioners.

The organization thanks all those who participate, volunteer and donate time and supplies for this event. After School Art is currently offered twice weekly at the Kekaha Neighborhood Center.
