Blooming lotus adventures

It's difficult to put into words how much I learnt and grew from this yoga course.
I felt held in a loving nurturing space while being guided through yoga and meditation to invite growth and change inside myself. The physical side of this course was the tip of the iceberg. Francie and Ellanah were wonderful teachers who I cannot thank enough. I will certainly be returning on my next travels. So much gratitude for Blooming Lotus!!

An Important and Powerful Experience.

My time at Blooming Lotus Yoga's Thailand retreat with Francie Fishman and Ellanah Fawcett was one of the most memorable experiences of my life. I spent three full weeks at the retreat and cherished every minute. On the border of lush jungle and white sandy beaches you will find physical and mental challenges you may not have expected. You will also find rewards you may have forgotten were even attainable. During my time there a youthful energy of happiness and gratitude was awakened.


I was reminded of how large and beautiful the world was and how much there was to enjoy.

Don't worry. You will get better at your asana. You will be stronger and healthier and look better. You may be quite sore on Tuesday and Wednesday but by Thursday your body will start to open and walking itself will be a pure joy. When you leave you will be toned and tanned but you'll know that's not what matters. More importantly, you'll be smiling. A deep smile that even a 35 hour trip back home won't be able to wipe off your face.

I can't get enough of this retreat

I have just got back from a week at Blooming lotus in Thailand. This is my 2nd time there. The 1st time, in August, i went for one week and stayed for 2. I went back this january and this was the best start of the year. Francie is the most fun, loving, fascinating, encouraging yoga teacher. This is not just a retreat, it is a spiritual journey in most stunning location, beautiful beaches on the edge of the jungle. I love that place.
Thank you Blooming lotus, Francis and Philly for taking so good care of me, i hope that will return soon

What a wonderful escape

Blooming Lotus was a wonderful experience for me. Lily Goncalves is a true Yogi, both in technical knowledge and ability to teach and in understanding and living Yogic philosophy. As a yoga teacher, my time with her was priceless in helping to take my practice deeper on many levels. The setting is amazing-- beautiful beaches with a relaxed vibe, a little partying for those who want it and quiet reflection for those who don't. I highly recommend a trip to Blooming Lotus with the caveat that it would be best to plan your visit for a time when Lily is teaching. Other teachers were good, but for those who are deep in the path Lily is a treasure.

Teachers Training

Lily and Ramananda are wonderful teachers and very knowledgeable. They 've shown me how I can deepen my self practice by using the true essence of yoga. I hope to meet these lovely yogis again someday as there is so much more I would like to learn from them. Thank you for this wonderful experience.

much love,

happy place

At Blooming Lotus, Lily and Ramananda led us through a path of personal exploration and gentle understanding about what it means to live yoga. The studio is peacefully perched on the top an island hill, surrounded by jungle and its natural song, with the ocean breeze sifting through the screened walls to cool you from the Thai air. It is an absolutely beautiful experience, inside and out. My happy place.

Life changing experience

The experience I had personally, and together as a group was amazing. Lily and Ramananda are both knowledgeable teachers. Their wisdom, energy and love is given freely so everyone feels special, loved and at home in their cosy retreat.

The location is breath taking, a real escape from the stress of everyday life. You are made to feel part of the family from the very start and that stays with you, forever!


Every day is planned for enjoyment, hard work and a bit of fun:-) The time just goes too quickly and every evening we were all shouting "more, more" when Ramananda closed his session. He is a humble man, full of love and just wants to share his knowledge with you. I truly feel special just having met this man and experienced his wisdom

Lily is a vivacious ball of energy. Her smile could light up New York! You just want to touch her soul, so you are part of her, and her energy. Her teaching methods are professional, safe and fun! She makes everyone feel special and loved.

I am planning to go back there in a year or two. They will always be my teachers and Guru's for life.

You really don't need to look for another school, teacher or Guru. You have it all here in Thailand, and I can say hand on heart, you won't be disappointed.

Perfect retreat for our honeymoon in paradise

My wife and I attended a 5 day retreat in late July of this year. Francie, our teacher was warm, super attentive, accommodating, and so much more. It was everything we were looking for and more. Not only did we get to practice some of the most fulfilling yoga and meditation we've ever known, we did so in a place that could only be described as paradise. We were constantly wrapped in jungle sounds, tropical breezes, and we had an amazing time getting to know our fellow kindhearted travelers and students. If you're willing to go off the beaten path to find a little slice of heaven, this is the place for you. I can only hope for a chance to get back to this magical place.

A beautiful experience

I could not be more grateful for my Yoga Teacher Training experience at Blooming Lotus. Everything I learned I've taken into my life as well as my practice. The program is intuitive, well balanced and comprehensive; the studio is an oasis. Lily and Ramananda are incredible teachers and their guidance provides a deep understanding of the essence of yoga, a beautiful balance between the spiritual and the physical. I walked away with more than I could have hoped for and am eager to return.

You are in the right place.

Lily and Ramananda are two beautiful souls who will provide you with what you need. They taught me the most valuable lesson you can get at a teacher training, which is to communicate the true essence of yoga. If you are lucky enough to land in one of their yoga retreats or teacher trainings, just rest at peace knowing that you are in the right place at the right time.

A retreat to discover

I had a excellent experience in the retreat. The yoga that was shared by Annette was not the usual commercialized yoga your everyday life. She has a wealth of knowledge when she shared from her heart and it felt genuine.

It was a retreat where openness was encourage yet not pressed upon. It was about discovering more then just yoga, it was a moment to reflect on your life which many of my retreat mates did.

The facilities were decent, the food around bamboo hut was great and if your looking to improve your health (mentally, spiritually, physically) this is an excellent retreat.
