Yogi Times Magazine May 2005

"Yogi Times is out to explore the "hotspots" in our community  where yogis can go to find interesting things to do, hidden treasures and mindful gifts from off the beaten path. Not your everyday trip to the mall, we search for special spots that will appeal to those who are looking for more than your basic retail. This month we took a flight to Paia in Maui, Hawaii. Paia, known for its abundant sugar plantations, is situated on the north shore of Maui with beautiful beaches protected by a barrier reef. It is a quaint, coastal town with brightly painted buildings and a strong, health-conscious community. You can get healthy snacks, delicious crepes, fill up the tank or rent a surfboard. It is the last town on the exquisitely scenic road to Hana, here are some of Paia's highlights."#1. Mana Foods Grocery-Bakery-Deli "Whether you're looking for your favorite nutritional bar or to just grab a "raw meal" to go, Mana Foods has it all! We were surprised to find all our goodies from the mainland, including French gourmet goat cheese, and our special soy milk. Almost everyone in Paia pays a visit at least once a day to Mana, making this modest yet extensive grocery store a community hot spot!"
