Testimonials from previous retreats…..
“Thank you for making the Yoga retreat the most liberating holiday ever”. Labrini, Fiji 2014
“Firstly as you are aware Yoga on any scale is new to me so to do the week retreat in Fiji was quite a leap of courage. The ambience of Daku Resort had a wonderful homely and warm welcoming feel. Your encouraging direction was very comfortable and clear. I’m containing myself and not wanting to be too gussy but I want to share how much I enjoyed the week and how much more comfortable I am feeling about Yoga and now I’m a convert and am looking forward to incorporating it into my normal weekly routine. Thank-you for such for a pleasant learning experience”. ~ Chris (Fiji 2014)
Recently, I was part of a yoga retreat in Fiji with our teacher Gabrielle Boswell and seven other participants. We were a diverse group with respect to background, experience of yoga, age, interests and gender, yet the group quickly bonded. We had visits to gardens, a village and a waterfall, as well as having fantastic massages between yoga sessions. The wonderful staff knew our names and treated us as part of their Fijian family.
Especially wonderful was the open air yoga platform built high up on a hill surrounded by beauty on all sides. Rainforest, blue skies, palm trees, expansive lawns and a magnificent view of the ocean made this place magical for the practice of yoga.
Gabrielle’s teaching was the highlight. We all learned so much on that retreat and I think most will continue to practice on our return home. Her wonderful voice, imagery, wisdom and silence entranced the whole group.
I for one will be returning to Fiji next year to learn more yoga with Gabrielle. ~ Liz, Daku Resort, Fiji 2014
