The retreat

Yoga is a fantastic way to bring balance and harmony, to calm a busy mind and relieve stress, anxiety and tiredness. I believe that through the regular practice of yoga one can restore physical and mental health, giving you a more rewarding life.

My aim is to share the joy and balance that yoga brings to my life.

Join me for a fabulous week of Fijian sunshine, beaches, yoga, meditation and warm Fijian hospitality in Savusavu, Fiji 2024 at Daku Resort.

Thank you for facilitating such a beautiful retreat, it was very special for me. I think the most talented yoga teachers manage to create some type of healing in people that is enduring and I think you really have that gift Emmie. It is inspiring that you are following your heart and sharing that healing with people. Seeing someone be courageous like this is really inspiring for me.

I recently attended one of Emmie’s Women’s Weekend Wellness retreats. Having practiced yoga for over twenty years, this was the first time I had been on a retreat and it was nothing short of wonderful. Emmie is a truly beautiful soul, and she wove a really good balance of yoga and meditation sessions through the weekend – we even had the amazing experience of an evening sound bath. Highly recommend to yogis of any level.

I went on my first yoga retreat with Emmie in July 2023 – it went so far beyond my hopeful expectations that I couldn’t believe it.

Emmie has a wonderful way of inviting people into yoga asanas, a beautiful way of speaking and simply shines like a light of loveliness.

She made everyone feel included and part of things, and had provided some great extra options in terms of a sound bath and the best massage I’ve ever had.

I hoped I would come away rested – what I hadn’t expected was that not only would I feel rested, but also very peaceful and inwardly strengthened, and that those feelings would continue to grow and consolidate and last for a long time.

It was such an enriching experience that I am eagerly awaiting my next retreat with Emmie.

Teacher Emmie Allwood-Holmes

Meet Emmie in her own words.

I’m a yogini, mother and hobby beekeeper. I’m passionate about all things yoga & I aim to deliver a challenging, but safe and well balanced class to students.

I studied under Swami Vinyanand at the SriMa school in Auroville, India, where I completed a 200hr Yoga Alliance International teacher certification. Obtaining proficiency in; Anatomy, Pranayama, Meditation, Core Hatha Yoga Asanas, Communication Skills. I’m also a fully qualified meditation instructor. Since my initial yoga teacher training I have undertaken various other yoga courses which have helped shape my yoga teaching and retreat offerings today.

I discovered that when body, mind, & spirit are in unison through the practise of yoga, a beautiful sense of equilibrium and contentment is possible.
