It is designed as a retreat style format, offering you a delicious, feel-good flow in the morning followed by juicy and informative lectures, long midday breaks, and a powerfully deep and restorative Yin yoga and Myofascial Release practice after lunch.

Leleuvia Island Resort offers two types of accommodation. It has a traditional thatched 28 square meter private Bure’s right on the beach and a male a female dormitory capable of sleeping 20 in each. The newly built bure's are located on the east side of the island granting spectacular views of the Lomaiviti group of islands.
