Bula Wellness Retreat Recap 2016

Bula friends!! We just wrapped up another amazing and successful trip to Fiji with this year's Bula Wellness Retreat crew! I have a serious case of Missing-the-islands Blues, so as I sit here and flip through my photos, I present a slideshow for you!

One of my favorite things about this trip is that it's never the same; the people who come with us provide a new dynamic each time, of course... but it's also different every trip because of Fiji itself, and the ever-changing landscape and slow-pace of life. We've learned to go with the flow, because the unexpected twists always end up giving us the best memories!

Case in point: I'd planned the first morning's yoga session for out on my favorite deck where we could watch the sunrise as we practiced... and then a huge rainstorm rolled in! So we moved the morning session into the Seaside Restaurant. It's round, and all windows, so it made such a cool experience to be practicing in the middle of the storm itself, facing each other, slowing down to really appreciate it!

We had some other awesome adventures too; with a trip to the Vuadomo Waterfall, to Savusavu town, a kayak up the Salt River to Salt Lake, and a day trip to the most dreamy white sand beach you could imagine for beach-combing and snorkeling.

We ate some pretty incredible food... fresh fruit ALL DAY and the freshest local catch on the menu daily:

And the coolest part to me, is how a group of different people from all different walks of life can come together on a trip like this and have an absolute blast getting to know each other, and sharing the adventures with new friends. Sounds cliche, but it's true... I was so grateful for this group!!
