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 25 ecologically designed houses, 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 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.
All civil engineering works have been completed, i.e. road building, laying of services (water/sewage/electricity/internet), and preparation of building sites. The original cottage remains and the first nine houses have been completed and occupied, and a further four houses are underway and will be progressively occupied from March through to August 2021.
The new yoga centre/community centre, aptly named Lotus House is now being used for classes, workshops and community gatherings. Office admin and reception have moved from the old villa to the new centre, with the grand old villa now relocated to Otaki having been purchased for renovation and a new lease on life.
