Come and join us for a 3 day, 2 night yoga retreat in the beautiful Bay of Islands. Longer stays welcome.
As well as four yoga sessions, you’ll have the opportunity to explore the coast, bush trails and the sub-tropical gardens of our retreat. You can choose to be as active or relaxed as you want.
Our yoga instructor Lisa teaches alignment focused Vinyasa flow classes for beginner to intermediate levels. Her classes incorporate asana, pranayama and mindfulness – building strength and stamina, while increasing flexibility and fluidity of movement through the power of connecting to the breath.
Anais is our other yoga instructor. She is a certified 200h YTT Hatha-Vinyasa yoga instructor and is now training in yoga therapy. Anais teaches beginner and intermediate levels and is always aware of people's abilities and injuries, allowing anyone to fully embody its own practice and get the best of it. Anais's classes can be yin and restorative or yang and energizing depending on the students' energy levels and needs. A dynamic Vinyasa flow will connect movement and breath, balancing out effort and relaxation, while a Yin or Restorative practice will enhance a meditative state a therapeutic effect on the body and on the mind.

"I very much appreciative Philippa listening to my goals, and organising a personalised retreat which worked for me. Her gentle, calm approach and manner was great. Fabulous location, accommodation and food."

"I LOVED my experience! Every guest gets to customize their own experience. I chose to focus on yoga and taking time to slow down, I left feeling relaxed and energized. The hosts took care of every detail and went above and beyond with every detail. The room was extremely clean, the yoga classes were fantastic, I loved the infrared sauna and really enjoyed the mini trips that were offered. I can't say enough about my stay, I can't wait to go back!!!"

"The yoga was excellent plus the hosts were friendly and helpful. The venue was lovely and excellent value for money. The furnishings and things like nice soaps/ body lotion was a great quality and tasteful. The setting was lovely and there were nice places to visit and the hosts provided transport or took us."
