Through the Good Morning Show on TVNZ (New Zealand) we offered two places on DeidreLee Allen’s PureBalance YogaPilates course in the first week of June. The winner was Dannette who brought along her sister – and subsequently wrote this lovely letter of appreciation for the week:
I was the winner of the 7-night Yoga Pilates retreat at Daku Resort, Fiji, with Deidre-Lee Allen. I returned home from Fiji on Sunday night, what can I say…thank you SO much, what an absolutely amazing life changing week it was, both for myself and for my sister who I took with me.
The staff at Daku Resort are so wonderful, they welcomed us with open arms as part of their family. Our bure was beautiful, looking straight out onto the ocean, surrounded by gorgeous tropical gardens. The food..wow…from the fresh tropical fruit to the outstanding kokoda, our tastebuds were fully sated.
Purebalance Yoga Pilates with Deidre-Lee Allen… each morning we would be in the yoga shala by 7am, set up on a hill, surrounded by coconut palms and looking out to the ocean, a beautiful tranquil space to start our day. Deidre-Lee is a wonderful teacher and was such an inspiration, her passion for Yoga Pilates shines and somehow she managed to make all of us stretch or bend just that little bit further, or hold that pose for just a few more seconds… magical! We walked away from each session feeling refreshed, relaxed & oh so happy & fortunate to be there, living in the moment.
Our days were filled with snorkelling, visiting local villages, a boat trip, beach picnic, swimming… or just lazing around the pool drinking pina coladas, ahh, bliss! It was fabulous to have a week with my sister Linda, she & the others doing the course are all amazing strong women whom I feel very lucky to have shared a week in paradise with.
Daku Resort now has a small piece of my heart, magical memories made.
Thank you Good Morning, if I could’ve taken you all with me I would’ve!
