Lotus Rising, Vietnam


A BREATHTAKING RETREAT THROUGH THE STUNNING ANCIENT HEART OF CENTRAL VIETNAM. JOIN US FOR THIS UNIQUE TWO CENTRE BOUTIQUE RETREAT EXPERIENCE, AMONGST STUNNING LANDSCAPES FOR WHAT WILL BE THE MOST INCREDIBLE AND TRANSFORMATIVE JOURNEY.

 

You are invited to join Mindful Tribes and the team from Liquid Room, a bespoke yoga studio and floatation centre in Melbourne’s bayside, on a breathtaking journey of transformation to stunning Vietnam.  

You’ll be graced with the hospitality of Vietnam, guided by Ivy the owner of Liquid Room, who has spent a significant part of her life exploring Southeast Asia while dedicating the last 10 years exploring her spirituality and yoga teachings.

‘Lotus Rising’ is a yoga retreat for individuals wanting to explore inner awareness, inner strength and freeing of one’s mind to make space for the present and the future. ‘Lotus’ is an exquisite flower which represents purity, serenity, commitment and optimism.  This flower begins its journey in muddy water and rises above the surface to bloom with remarkable beauty, giving rise to the symbolism of one’s hope in life that through darkness there will always be light.  Most appropriately, the lotus is the national flower of Vietnam representing the country’s cultural diversity and tenacity, having survived one of history’s most devastating wars, evolving to become one of the world’s most beautiful country's to visit.

This retreat offers a week of unique travel experiences as the team from Liquid Room guide you through life transforming moments surrounded by the serenity of mountain fresh air, water and sun.  You’ll enjoy sunrise meditation, yoga flow practices, workshops and cultural trips into the ancient villages of Central Vietnam, while stimulating the senses with mouth-watering local cuisines and hospitality along the way.  

Embark on this breathtaking two centre retreat, with our welcoming team to experience a personal journey of self exploration, self-empowerment and cultural diversity, meanwhile finding deep relaxation and peace in the timeless beauty of Central Vietnam.

If you are new to yoga and or a more dedicated yogi, this trip will be a transformative escorted journey run by our amazing MINDFUL TRIBES and LIQUID ROOM communities.

 

OUR STAYS

Our 7 Day / 6 Night retreat is made up of of 3 Nights at the Vedana Lagoon Resort & Spa near Hue and 3 nights at Ancient Village House in Hoi An. 

Vedana Lagoon Resort & Spa, our first beautiful retreat home, is located half way between the ancient cities of Hue and Hoi An on the central coast of Vietnam. Upon arrival at Danang airport, you will be met by a driver and transferred the hour to the Vedana where you will be welcomed by our Mindful Tribes community for your first three nights. 

Nestled in plush tropical gardens and next to the blue lagoon, this first retreat is a breathtakingly beautiful boutique stay. From the moment you arrive your breath will change pace, with the quiet and calm of the lagoon around you.  The inviting swimming pool and day beds will allow you to relax and unwind and you can enjoy your complimentary massage in the inviting day spa.   Our private overwater yoga shala is stunning and its setting totally divine for your transformational yoga practice. Each of our rooms at Vedana are located with an uninterrupted lagoon view to enjoy the sunset and let your mind wander whilst watching the local fishing boats bob by.

On bidding Vedana farewell, we will continue our journey onto the world famous world UNESCO city of Hoi An where we will stay at Ancient House Village. Here our peaceful location nestled near the canals, fields and waterways gives way to a picturesque and colourful town, easy to walk around. The rivers closeby lead to a stunning beach for you to enjoy at your leisure.
