The Lotus Yoga Centre is on the brink of major change and transformation. Circumstances have recently aligned to propel us into a future that previously had only been a dream. Our Centre Director has long had a vision of a new centre being built further up into our property close to where the meditation Sanctuary is situated. Plans are now well advanced to make this a reality.
The Lotus Yoga Centre has entered into a partnership with a sympathetic property developer who will assist us to achieve our vision. In so doing and as an outcome of this partnership, we will soon see the implementation of a plan that includes 27 ecologically designed houses, a community centre, a guest house, and extensive organic vegetable gardens as well as a brand new yoga centre itself. So between us, we will create a very significant property development, and more importantly, a community development too.
This new village will be called Lotus Eco Village, and will incorporate the very latest in ecological and environmental design. We are planning for a community that will co-exist under a model called cohousing that is becoming more common in Europe, North America, and now here in New Zealand.
Resource Consent is currently being applied for. Site works will begin around April 2018, with construction starting in spring 2018. By autumn 2019 we hope to be fully ensconced in our new premises. The full construction of all 27 houses will take a little longer though.
Enquiries are most welcome.
