10 -12 Days in New Zealand
Sanctuary Yoga and Ayurveda Retreat

At the core of this work is connection. 

In a world in which we are always rushing, onto the next decision, project, stage of life, or even the next meal without time for acknowledgement, something is missed. We can know life through books and pretend to have lived it, by listing our moments on resumes or documenting them on social media profiles, but nothing beats experiences, felt fully. 

 

Ayurveda provides us a lens to see, hear, feel, smell, and touch with awareness of our own nature and nature herself and through that lens, we can engage with life purposefully, sensitively, and set ourselves up to live our unique lives well. 

 

The greatest gift of learning Ayurveda has been, for me, the gift of remembering how to tune in (not out). Learning how to truly wake up, slow down, and stop to smell the roses has functions more than just pleasure. It is the doorway to meditation and the medicine for our minds, bodies, and hearts. 

This retreat will include a a balance of yoga, pranayama, and Ayurveda lessons, meals, and practices in our shared home, in natural settings, and even a gorgeous sanctuary in this remote location. 

 

The magic happens through our own awareness, honesty, sincerity, and presence with guidance and special guests who will be a welcoming presence in Aotearoa (The Land of The Long White Cloud).

February 2 - 11th

The 10 day retreat runs from Feb 2-11 2024, participants can arrive from jan 31 to get over jet lag…and stay on after if interested.

Each day will include gentle yoga & pranayama, ayurveda, community vegetarian meals, and other optional events like excursions, thai massage, or body product making workshops with Anjali. 

There will be optional excursions to gorgeous beaches to relax, trails to view native plants, and stunning views on the Coromandel Peninsula, quaint towns, and time to relax on the stunning property under night skies, with outdoor fires, song, and laughter. This will be a once in a lifetime experience to connect with yourself, this sacred planet, and newfound community.

All excursions are optional, but this retreat would be best enjoyed if one is comfortable walking in nature on uneven ground.

Each day will offer time alone, structured time in groups, and unstructured time  in community.

The cost of at least one massage will be included in the retreat with optional add-ons of table massage or water therapy massage with our retreat center host, Sol Peterson.

We will live with intention for the present and the future.
