Whether you are looking to deepen or begin your yoga practice, contemplate where you want to go with your life, explore ways to de-stress or simply take some well-earned time out, this retreat is the ideal answer. Explore the balance between ease and effort through gentle asana practice, guided relaxation and meditation with an emphasis on creativity and ease of flow between postures - a moving meditation. Yoga is a practice of awareness: body, breath and mind - the vehicles through which one finds harmony and connection with spirit. This retreat is paced to offer a gentle, meditative practice that allows you the opportunity to sink deeper into the asanas and gain a thorough awareness of your bodys needs.
Our accommodation is in beautiful tropical gardens overlooking Savusavu Bay, which is straight over the road in front of us. Behind us, the property stretches up the mountain – you’re welcome to walk there. And we’re surrounded by a wealth of beauty: lush green forests, coral reefs, warm seas – plus the endless warmth of Fijian hospitality.
Daku Resort is on Fiji’s northern island of Vanua Levu, just outside the small town of Savusavu. Fiji has about 300 islands. The two big ones are Viti Levu where you’ll arrive when you fly into Nadi airport, and Vanua Levu – that’s us. But whilst Viti Levu has most of the population and gets most of the tourism, we’re still a sleepy backwater with a small population and a fraction of the tourist numbers.
The program is structured around morning workshops with afternoons for activities and free time to enjoy a massage, go snorkeling, or relax by the pool. The order of workshops may vary depending upon weather conditions.The listed activities are part of the course and are covered by your fees. If you want to add on extra excursions, e.g. diving, you are welcome to do so and they will be added to your bill.

"I’ve been one week in Daku resort for a yoga retreat, I spent one of my best holidays ever! The staff is fabulous, always looking after your needs, its a friendly and warm atmosphere, they make you feel at home in family. The location is just amazing front of the sea, the ideal place to have a beautiful rest and yoga classes. Everything you need to enjoy Fiji and its culture. Amazing excursion and especially snorkeling and village trip. The owner JJ and Delia are lovely soul people, always smiling and willing to have discussion, lunch or dinner with you. I’ll never forget those holidays and cant forward to come back there. Thanks for all!"

"Hi Liz, just a thank you note about the wonderful retreat you ran at Daku in Savusavu. I enjoyed all aspects of the retreat: the yoga, the other attendees, the resort, the food, the warm friendly people, and their customs, the excursions - the list goes on and on. Most of all was the benefit I received from the yoga. Your teaching was just fantastic. Your gentle, yet lively manner together with your intuition resulted in wonderful yoga classes. I have returned home full of inspiration to continue to extend and deepen my own practices. Liz, your integrity, ecological awareness, and fun-filled attitude carried on from the classes throughout the whole retreat making it all such a pleasure to be a part of. I hope the other attendees gained as much benefit and enjoyment from the retreat as I did."
"Thank you and namaste."
