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.
The accommodation comes as traditional Fijian-style bures (small houses) and self-contained cottages and villas, all with their own deck.
These rooms make use of the divided Family Ocean View Bures overlooking the pool. Each room has its own bathroom, deck, mini-refrigerator, tea and coffee making facilities, and air-conditioning. Two of them are set up on the hillside overlooking the pool and out to the bay, one is in the gardens of the resort.
All of Daku Resort's bures look out over the gardens and onto Savusavu Bay. The resort has five Ocean View Bures and three Family Ocean View Bures. Each Single Ocean View Bure has a bedroom with a double bed and an extra single bed with a private bathroom and covered deck. There is a bar fridge, tea and coffee making facilities, and air-conditioning.
The Family Ocean View Bures have two separate rooms with a lockable door in between, ideal for a family, two couples who are friends but still want privacy, or they can be used as individual rooms. Each bedroom has its own bathroom, deck, and the other facilities of the single bures. Two of them are set up on the hillside overlooking the pool and out to the bay, one is in the gardens of the resort. These are also available as single rooms.
The Bayview Garden Villas are comfortable two-bedroom and two-bathroom water view villas with air-conditioning. Each one has its own private plunge pool. They have all the advantages of being on a resort while still giving you privacy. Situated in the lush tropical gardens of Daku Resort estate with a view out to the bay, it's just steps away from the beach where you can go snorkeling, kayaking, and swimming.
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).
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.
Liz Bennett is an experienced physiotherapist and yoga therapist. She has a thorough understanding of what constitutes a safe and suitable practice. In 2004, Liz took a three-year intensive apprenticeship with physiotherapists and yoga teachers Simon Borg Olivier and Bianca Machliss of Yoga Synergy. After teaching full time at Yoga Synergy, she moved to the Northern Beaches and undertook a diploma of yoga teaching with Michael De Maninco. Currently, she runs a yoga school, Yoga Essentia, at Warriewood Surf Life Saving Club and teaches students in all stages of life, from 7 to 77 years old.
Amelia runs a community centred yoga studio in Bellingen on NSW mid-north coast, and teaches the ancient art of Yoga in a safe, fun and masterful way, based on a deep understanding of anatomy and physiology, modern medical science and traditional Hatha Yoga. Amelia passionately believes the teachings and practices of yoga are for everyone, and a regular practice not only improves your physical wellbeing but enables you to harness emotional vitality, mental clarity and spiritual bliss.
