Our newest Down to Earth store will be a 13,000 square foot location just a few blocks mauka of the SALT at Our Kaka’ako cultural center. Down to Earth will be on the ground floor of a mid-rise development called Keauhou Lane at the corner of Keawe and Pohukaina Streets.
Kaka’ako is part of the urban core of Honolulu that is experiencing explosive growth. The development itself will have 209 residential units and other retailers. It is on the same block as another development that will be 40 stories high and have 388 units and a rail transit station.
This upcoming Thanksgiving holiday is a great reminder to count our blessings. One way to do this is to take 15 minutes out of the year and meditate on Gratitude. This is becoming an increasingly important topic in the mainstream healthcare and yoga communities. For good reason. Feeling and expressing gratitude can have a profound effect on your life—especially if you do it on a daily basis, all year round.

“A mother is she who can take the place of all others but whose place no one else can take.”
Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 8th!
Every mother deserve a huge and heartfelt thank you for their selfless love, hard work and guidance, and all the under-appreciated and unseen sacrifices that come along with motherhood. Even if it is a small gesture, take the time to let your mother know that you appreciate her.
