With uninterrupted views of National Park, and Mounts Ngāuruhoe and Ruapehu,

our Eco Lodge was the perfect setting for a yoga retreat.

This was 3 days and 3 nights of blissful yoga, with 9 stunning women.

During morning practice, we watched sunrise in perfect silence, with bird song rising out of the surrounding bush and trees.

In the day there was free time to explore the natural beauty of the area.

In the later afternoons we settled in for 2 hours of silence, giving us a chance to be creative or rest as we wished.

At night people sat round the table for 3 course vegetarian meals. I was chef and got some amazing help when the pressure was on.

On night 2, we had a wild fancy dress to let off steam, with a in-house show, which had us all in fits of laughter and pure enjoyment.

On the final night, a deep red moon rose up into the expanse of the Milky Way, offering us majestic reverie and solidarity.

Nine women worked like a dream, participating in yoga, meditation, silence, and sharing of insights.

The next yoga retreat will be in April 2021, and then again in October 2021.

Don’t hesitate to contact me if you would like to join is for the next one.
