Check-out Time:

You will be staying in a beautiful private coastal New Zealand home in Piha, a laid-back seaside village 45 minutes west of Auckland city. Wake up to a stunning view of Piha’s famous Lion Rock and its beautiful black sand beaches. At night, enjoy a warm cuppa on the large sea-facing deck looking out to the magnificent sunset over the Tasman, and the crystalline views of the extraordinarily bright Southern night sky full of stars.

This comfortable modern home sleeps 9 with shared and private room options. There is a fully equipped kitchen where you can prepare your meals either individually or together (shared meals are always more fun!). Linen and towels are supplied with laundry facilities. Unlimited wifi included.


Here at Asia Pacific Yoga, we strive to create immersive, expansive and transformational experiences that you will not forget. We believe in keeping our groups small, a maximum of 9 students so that each student gets the maximum benefit out of the training and the proper attention he or she deserves.

Yoga practices are about feeling better, no matter where that begins for you. It is not about what it looks like. It is about what it feels like. The training is about exploration, not perfection. Asia Pacific Yoga is passionate about our yoga and love to share these simple but profound practices.

Asia Pacific Yoga go by the principles that everybody is DIFFERENT and individual attention is vital when you begin learning yoga postures and yoga sequences. They understand that there is no ‘One Size Fits All’ when it comes to yoga and that every student has different needs when learning how to teach yoga.

This is a unique opportunity to practice, study, and become an internationally certified Yoga Alliance yoga teacher in coastal New Zealand. The yoga house is walking distance from the beach and you will sleep to the sound of waves. Come and join Asia Pacific Yoga!
