Set your clocks to island time and enjoy the opportunity to relax, nourish and balance your body, mind & soul on an idyllic Fijian island with renowned Aussie Yoga by the Sea founder, Sasha Hawley. Her award-winning yoga retreats welcome everyone, regardless of age, health, fitness, or yoga experience, as is the custom in Fiji – the friendliest place on earth!

 

Yoga Holiday

In tune with the tranquil location, this is more of a yoga holiday than a bootcamp, with all activities optional, including (meditative hatha, restorative yin and challenging vinyasa) yoga classes, catering for the many reasons one practices the art of peace. You can expect to deepen your practice, your connection to nature and oneself; cultivate wellbeing and mindfulness; improve fitness, flexibility and strength; experience positive transformation within a no-judgments, no-pressure, lighthearted atmosphere.

 

You’ll enjoy 6 days and 5 nights accommodation at Koro Sun Resort and Rainforest Spa, nestled between coral reefs, tropical gardens, waterfalls, mountains and rainforests on the Fijian island of Savusavu. A hidden paradise, the resort brags luxury frills including a pampering Spa, tennis courts, pool, bicycles, 9 hole rainforest Pitch ‘N Putt golf, access to kayaks, paddleboards and snorkeling equipment. Immerse yourself in the surrounds and create your own adventure between yoga classes… Kayak to saltwater caves and nearby islands; relax and read by the pool; explore reefs or trek through the rainforest to Vuodomo waterfall; bike the Hibiscus Road to hidden beaches; play a round of bocce ball, golf, tennis, croquet or volleyball… And, embrace Fijian cultural tours and activities eg. a cooking class, ancestral herbal remedy walk, local village school or Sunday church visits, handline fishing, pearl presentation, Lovo dinner, Meke dancing and kava ceremony.
