Rebecca

Rebecca Chabot and Pure Yoga Tasmania

Born in Mississippi, Rebecca Chabot began studying yoga and meditation in Seattle over 25 years ago. She moved to Tasmania in 2001 and has been dedicated to teaching for 15 years, in both Australia and North America. Rebecca is recognised by the international yoga community as an exceptional instructor who fuses yoga, meditation and philosophy in an accessible and relevant way.

As an ecologist, Rebecca understands the interconnection between the internal and the external, and she inspires students to use the practice as a deep dive inwards to stretch and strengthen not only the body but also the heart and mind. Pure Yoga Tasmania, offers special workshops, online courses and yoga retreats in Australia, Sri Lanka and Indonesia.

“Yoga for me is a way of life. My practice enables me a deeper awareness of my thoughts and emotions, and therefore of my actions. Once we are aware of what’s going on inside, we can take the reins and change what needs to be changed in our lives. It’s like returning home. ”

About Our Venue

Set on a hilltop, 40 metres above the pounding of the sea and surrounded by National Park, the Bay of Fires Lodge is the only building on 20km of outstanding coastal wilderness.

Enjoying views up and down the pristine white sandy beaches in an area of great significance to the Aboriginal community, a truly ecologically-aware building has been gently let into the landscape. Two long timber and glass pavilions allow maximum connection to the landscape with minimum impact on the environment: all building materials - Tasmanian hardwood and plantation pine - were lifted in by helicopter or hand carried to the site.

The lodge is autonomous in providing and managing its existence. Here you will experience true communion with nature in accommodation that combines simplicity of design with comfort and warmth. In the magnificent living area with its large timber deck and open fire, you’ll enjoy delicious meals prepared with the freshest local produce, accompanied by fine Tasmanian wines. Solar power provides the lighting, while hot showers and comfortable hotel beds add a touch of luxury at the end of each day’s activities.

All accommodation at the Lodge is twin or double share, arranged as two king-singles or one king bed. There is a small library which is comfortable and cosy looking out over the ocean. This is a great place to sit back and relax or look through our selection of books and magazines.

Day 1: Launceston to Mt William National Park

Approximately 4 hours walking

After our morning journey from Launceston, we arrive at the Bay of Fires, to be greeted by the azure blue waters, white sandy beaches and iconic orange lichen-covered granite boulders.  Our lunch spot today is nestled in the dunes near Eddystone Point Lighthouse. We’ll have time to explore the lighthouse and its long-standing story before it's time to get our walking boots sandy as we trek far-stretching beaches that lead to the celebrated Bay of Fires Lodge.

Afternoon tea will be waiting. Come evening, venture into the library or have your hosts deliver a cold drop while you dip toes into a foot spa on the back deck. Dinner is a Tasmanian long-table affair, featuring produce from the island matched with fine local beer and wine.

Workshop elements:

  • pre-walk mindful moment
  • After dinner discussion and evening journalling

In the morning there is time for a walk nearby with our naturalist guide. You can choose to fish, snorkelling in the marine nursery, exploring shell coves or enjoying the lodge surrounds.

After lunch, the afternoon is devoted to a yoga workshop with Rebecca.

After dinner is when the native wildlife wander out - keep an eye out for wombats, wallabies, Forester kangaroos, possums or even a Tasmanian devil. Don’t forget to look up! The night sky from this pristine coastline is an awesome spectacle.
