This retreat offers a blissful journey into the heart with a combination of Vinyasa Flow, traditional Hatha practice, and deeply restorative classes.
During the week you will find your inner bliss, deepen your flexibility, attune to the way yoga poses can flow on into the next, learn to follow your breath within sequences, strengthen and tone your body, and relax deeply. You will come away with a practice you can bring to daily life, and an awareness of how Yoga can enhance your inner experience.
If you are holidaying with your kids, we’re structuring the week to offer separate classes to 7- 14 year olds; exactly how we mix them up will depend on how many are interested. It’s a great way to introduce your children to a practice that they might benefit from for the rest of their lives.
In the morning sessions, Lotus focuses on the physical aspects of yoga, teaching a fun upbeat session of flowing from yoga asanas to strengthening exercises, movements and awareness of posture, and core body alignment. Evening classes offer a unique blend of pranayama: a powerful way to cleanse, rejuvenate, and find deep inner peace. Lotus has studied pranayama in depth, and will introduce you to a number of different yogic breathing techniques that help expand your awareness.
The combination of these two approaches is a path to a stronger body which can then more gracefully settle into a practice that brings peace to the mind. That is the beginning of bliss.

With a strong background in dance Lotus began studying yoga in 1991, and quickly found a deep passion for the practice. Deciding her dream was to teach, she went on to explore that world under the lineage of her master yoga teacher Allan Tafole. Extensive studies in Hatha Yoga, Prana Yama, Rasha Yoga, and Kundilini Yoga gave Lotus a wide-range of practical knowledge which lead to the development of her own eclectic style of ‘Vinyasa Yoga’ with a strong focus on breath, strength, balance, and deep relaxation.
In 2001 she opened a Yoga Retreat Centre in Hawaii where she taught individuals and groups for over eight years. She moved to Fiji in 2009 with her husband and four children, and is excited to teach in the wonderful environment that only Fiji offers.
