About this trip

East Coast Yoga is based on the Mid North Coast of Australia, we hold annual yoga retreats in Fiji, Bali and Australia. This year we are going to Matanivusi Eco Resort on Fiji's stunning coral coast.

Gretchen Highfield is a qualified JI1 Iyengar Yoga Teacher, she will teach 2 two hour classes per day, active in the morning, restorative at night. All experience levels are welcome!

Iyengar Yoga

Iyengar Yoga, named after and developed by B. K. S. Iyengar, is a form of Hatha Yoga that has an emphasis on detail, precision and alignment in the performance of posture (asana) and breath control (pranayama). The development of strength, mobility and stability is gained through the asanas.

Whether you are an experienced yoga practitioner or not classes are designed to include everyone, so they can work to their own capacity.

The use of props enables the less experienced or those with injuries to benefit from the poses (asanas) even if they can't do the full pose.

Frigates Surf Break

FRIGATES is definitely a world class left that can rival Cloud break for power, size and consistency.  Because of the gradual tapering of the reef it can handle all swell sizes.  The SE trade winds are offshore, so when the inside waves near Matanivusi are blown out there is always the consistent Frigates.  Because it’s out in the ocean, about 20 kilometers fromMatanivusi, it picks up all swell.  However some west in the swell can make it a bit dicey.  It definitely makes the end section stand up!  Frigates is accessed be a number of resorts and can get crowded.  However, once the swell gets up over 10’ there is a drop in the numbers tackling the waves.  A longer board is recommended to tackle the big drops and strong off shore winds.
