THE TRAVEL YOGI

Fiji Yoga Adventure

Trip in One Word: Sun-Kissed

What You’ll Experience In Fiji

On this Fiji yoga retreat adventure you’ll find yourself in one of Nature’s most luxurious settings.  You’ll revel in natural beauty, learn about local culture and explore marine and mangrove biodiversity—all with a daily dose of world renowned Fijian hospitality. Fiji comprises over 300 islands and has three official languages, English, Fjiian, and Fijian Hindu—the mix and warmth of cultures and language is as impressive and varied as the astounding colors and warmth of nature. Snorkel among electric coral gardens, learn about sustainability and conservation efforts and discover the richness of Fiji on this adventure. The mix of wonderful people, breathtaking nature and island culture that will wow even the wildest of adventurers.

How You’ll Experience Fiji

You’ll sleep and eat in luxury at the Jean-Michel Cousteau Resort, overlooking Savusavu Bay. You’ll explore Fiji’s marine wonders just like the resort’s namesake oceanographic explorer—driven by curiosity, a passion for conservation and adventure. Extraordinarily, you’ll snorkel through vibrant coral gardens and barrier reefs with a marine biologist, so be sure to pack your thinking cap! Get hands-on and help replant endemic mangroves, hike to inland waterfalls to swim in cascading freshwater and explore deserted (by people, anyway) islands. You’ll eat fresh, local cuisine, practice your Fijian as you get to know the locals and stay grounded on your mat with daily practice. Despite the archipelago’s size, this Fiji yoga retreat adventure doubles down on the truism of our interconnectedness through nature and each other.

How You’ll Feel When You Return Home

You’ll arrive home sun-kissed, snorkeled-out and drenched in new knowledge and inspiration. Courtesy of this Fiji yoga retreat adventure you’ll be lightened by your experience of the Fijian way of life and the islands’ unbounded beauty.  Imbued in your memory bank, you’ll carry with you the lesson that only Fiji can teach: happiness is the way.
