Bula from Fiji. The sun is bright, the weather is perfect, the water is blue, and my cup is full! I was offered an amazing opportunity to lead yoga on this little heart shaped island for 13 lovely families. Here's a snapshot of what i've been up to on the insanely beautiful island of Tavarua.

|eating lots of this|

|finding great things|
|meeting great folks|
|spending time here|
|teaching lots of yoga|
And just having a good ol' time!
Now you might ask what good time is to be had on vacation without a little tropical cocktail? I left it up to the surf/boat guys to make sure my coconuts were well taken care of.
Little did i know that harvesting a coconut is quite a feat. While i've been told the local fijians can do it in one fell swoop, it took my friend a solid 20 minutes of determination, sweat, and a 40 foot stick to get one down.
|i tried my hand at it too. It was a complete joke and i'm sure i looked absurdly ridiculous.|
|hard work, and he still has to knock two more down!|
We mixed up the coconut water with a little rum and a splash of pineapple juice and made what will forever go down in history as my FAVORITE tropical drink. It's so simple, i only hope that the coconuts we can get here in the states will make it as good!
|RECOMMENDED: coconut water from the coconut, rum, splash pineapple, ice|
As for anyone who is interested in going to this magical place as well, please send me a note on Facebook. This would be an awesome surf/yoga/SUP/boating adventure trip and i'd love to be your host next year in 2013.
