8 Days Balanced Practice Family Yoga Retreat in Savusavu, Fiji

Daku Resort, Savusavu, Vanua Levu, Fiji

Fiji Family Therapeutic Yoga Retreat

Liz Bennett has created a special space within her yoga retreat in Fiji to encourage parents to bring along their kids! It’s a wonderful way for moms and dads to embrace yoga within a family holiday and reconnect with each other, nature, and a gentler pace of life. There are special (separate) classes for the children and they can come along on all the excursions. At the same time, the kids never overwhelm the yoga so if you are not bringing children, don’t worry, the focus of each class is still on the adults.

Program

This year, Liz is running "Balanced Practice Family Yoga Retreat" together with her friend Amelia Disspain, who is the co-director of their Balanced Practice yoga teacher training and retreats. During this retreat, Liz and Amelia will be working with you on a daily basis to explore your capabilities and develop confidence and understanding of your body.

They will modify the practices for people with injuries and they will develop a take-home program for you that you can do on your own (recording it for you, so you won’t forget it the minute you leave the yoga shala).

Special Offer

Yoga in Fiji is offering moms and dads the chance to bring their kids aged 11 and under for free, including special kids’ yoga classes! There is a limit of two kids per adult. Accommodation will be in ocean view bures which sleep up to two adults and a child or one adult and two children. If you’re on your own with one or two children, they’ll charge you the single rate and put both kids in with you and they will have all meals and excursions at no extra charge.

If there are two adults both doing the course, you’ll be charged the twin share price each and then there’s room for one child in a bed and one in a cot, or if each adult takes a single room, they’ll put you in a double bure with adjoining bedrooms and you can spread the kids out between you however you choose.
