You have a chance to discover the magical island Steph's ancestors are from by taking a direct eight-hour flight from Los Angeles to Tahiti. This retreat contains two yoga classes daily, including Vinyasa flow, workshops, Pranayama, meditation, Kundalini yoga, restorative yoga, and mini private sessions.
Experience Steph's soulful Vinyasa flow classes overlooking Otemanu mountain, white sand beaches, and Bora Bora's famous turquoise lagoon. You can deepen your connection to your truth with guided meditation and pranayama practices or by simply relaxing under the golden Tahitian sun. After that, you will dive deep with Kundalini yoga or take a relaxing swim from your overwater bungalow.
In 2012, Stephanie signed up for the 200-hour Teacher Training at YogaWorks, not to become a teacher but more so to deepen her practice and understanding of yoga. She fiercely fell in love with the different aspects of yoga and devoted another 300 hours to YogaWorks’ professional teacher training program with mentor Kia Miller. Stephanie is always looking to expand her knowledge of yoga.
Being the most famous of French Polynesia’s Leeward islands, Bora Bora is the quintessential tropical paradise. Volcanic in origin, it is surrounded by sand-fringed motus (small islets) on an outer coral reef that encloses a turquoise lagoon. With only one navigable pass, the crystal-clear lagoon is calm, warm, and relatively shallow. At 727 meters (2,385 feet), Otemanu mountain towers over the main island. Next to it, the more rounded Pahia mountain stands at 658 meters (2,159 feet).
Settled by Polynesians around AD 900, French Polynesia was discovered by Europeans in the 16th century. For centuries, the French and English vied for the possession of Tahiti and its archipelago. A French colony since 1884, Bora Bora became an overseas territory in 1946. Its unequalled beauty has drawn artists and writers, perhaps most famously, author James A. Michener declared it the most beautiful island in the world. Today, most of Bora Bora’s 4,650 inhabitants live on a thin, flat coastal strip, many around the small port of Vaitape.
Heiva, French Polynesia's most important festival, is celebrated in a flamboyant display of traditional costumes, dance, music, crafts, and sports in summer. While the main event is in Papeete, each of the five archipelagos holds events to display their distinctive traditions, beginning at the end of June and carrying on through most of July.
A major annual sports event in winter of Bora Bora is Hawaiki Nui Va'a, a French Polynesia's outrigger canoe race. For three days, over a hundred traditional canoes race between Huahine and Bora Bora, cheered on by supporters in boats in close proximity. The excitement peaks at the finish line, where spectators welcome the winners with music and dance.
