This retreat will be held at Anahata Yoga Retreat, Takaka, New Zealand, which is situated in the midst of native beech forest with spectacular ocean views bordering the Abel Tasman National Park. It is a residential eco-yoga retreat using alternative power, composting toilets, eco-buildings, and nutritious organic vegetarian meals. It is a supportive, inspiring and dynamic environment that welcomes everyone regardless of age, background, and level of yoga experience.
The Anahata Yoga Retreat is based on the principles of an ashram, which is traditionally a place dedicated to personal transformation through regularity of yogic practice and self-enquiry with the support of a community of aspirants. The rhythmic environment helps an individual to find more clarity and peace as well as form healthy habits and bring yoga into daily life.
The ashram provides the foundation for self growth and development of inner potential. The resident community practices acceptance, compassion, and equanimity in the different activities in life through the yogic principles of meditation in action and selfless service. All visitors are welcome to join in these practices. The yoga room is located in a straw bale yurt and can be used for your personal practice or meditation when it is not in use for private sessions or scheduled programs.
