Future developments are now current! The Lotus Yoga Centre has embraced major change and transformation. What was once a dream is now a reality.
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. We have now fully manifested that vision.
Back in 2017 the Lotus Yoga Centre entered into a partnership with a sympathetic property developer who has assisted us to achieve our vision. In so doing and as an outcome of this partnership, we are now seeing the implementation of a plan that includes 21 ecologically designed standalone houses and 8 family friendly 2 storey townhouses, community facilities, and extensive organic vegetable gardens as well as a brand new yoga centre itself. Between us, we are creating a very significant property development, and just as importantly, a community development too.
This new village is called Lotus Eco Village, and incorporates the very latest in ecological and environmental design. We are creating 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.
All civil engineering works have been completed, i.e. road building, laying of services (water/sewage/electricity/internet), and preparation of building sites. The new yoga centre/community centre is now being used for classes, workshops and community gatherings. The original cottage remains and the grand old villa has been relocated to Otaki having been purchased for renovation and a new lease on life. Twenty houses have been completed and occupied, and the last of the standalone houses is nearing completion mid-October 2022. Work has begun on Stage two of the development. The eight 2 storey townhouses are due for completion from early 2023 through to the end of 2023.
