Hello Siargao

The Host:

Katharina Bleinis

Meeting Katharina for the first time is like running into an old friend you’ve known for years – conversations are effortless, she’s there when you need to talk, and she gives some pretty kick-ass advice along with some corny jokes to lighten up the mood. Within minutes, her quirky and playful personality energizes the room, creating a space of comfort when leading a class. Through intention, pranayama, meditation, and asana, her goal is for her students to leave each class inspired to learn more about themselves and the strengths of their bodies.

Having studied under the traditional Sivananda lineage, Katharina leads a strong alignment-based Hatha (and Vinyasa) practice to encourage her students to develop more body awareness and structural alignment. Looking for a sweat? Katharina’s Vinyasa practice will have you feeling sweaty, soulful, and physically empowered by the end of it. Don’t be surprised if she has you coming up into an arm balances out of nowhere!

Location:

Be careful not to catch the Siargao Island fever, because no matter how many days you stay, you’ll always want to stay for for longer. Siargao, a remote Island located at the northern eastern tip of Mindanao, which to many, is recognised as ‘surfers paradise’. However, Siargao Island offers so much more than just its famous waves that even non-surfers can enjoy! This island is made up of expats, locals, and assorted Siargao lifers have come together to build a caring and eco-friendly community that the kind of chill and laidback island life that everyone could ever wish for.

The Main Accomodation

Nestled within the jungles of a wave-fringed island, the Lotus Shores Yoga, Surf & Farm Retreat is a commune for yogis, seekers, surfers, and conscious adventurers travelling to Siargao to rest, manifest, connect, get barreled and (or) enlightened.

Life at the retreat is a celebration, exploration and preservation of the sacred wisdom that yoga and surfing have to teach us about ourselves and the world around us. The commune at Lotus Shores is home to the island’s only yoga center, Yoga Dojo, and Kali Ma Cafe, a plant-based kitchen and restaurant.

 

The Menu

The Kali Ma Café is a whole-food, plant-based café and restaurant within the commune. We source our produce from our growing vegetable garden and the island’s organic farms. Meals are made from scratch. Nothing from a can or plastic bag. We work with time (e.g organic farming methods, fermentation, etc.), nature, high vibrations, and loving hands.
