During the retreat, you will stay at Anahata Yoga Retreat and you may opt for a shared room or tent. Limited private room options are available, to find out more, please send Anahata Yoga Retreat an inquiry.

If you are concerned about getting connected, please note that Anahata is only able to provide internet access for essential communications e.g. booking flights and other crucial travel arrangements. Casual internet access for general e-mail and web browsing is unavailable due to their reliance on and limited supply of solar power. They have a satellite broadband connection that is quite power hungry!


Anahata Yoga Retreat provides a supportive yogic environment allowing you the opportunity for clarity, transformation and identifying with the deeper aspects of your personality. Set your new year’s positive resolution into motion utilizing SWAN theory (exploring strengths, weaknesses, aims, and needs) and use powerful yogic techniques such as sankalpa (intentions), Havan (ancient fire ceremony), yoga classes, meditation, and deep relaxation practices to create practical change, affirmation, and direction within your life.

At Anahata, you will get the chance to experience a yogic diet, a vegetarian diet that is based on principles of simplicity, and that supports your being in the process of positive transformation. A proper diet that is pure, simple, and as natural as possible is essential for progress in yoga. If one eats pure food, then the system is revitalized again and again.

All meals provided are vegetarian - simple, nutritious, and satisfying. Much of Anahata's organic food is sourced from local growers or picked fresh from their garden, which is developed along permaculture design principles. They have a closed kitchen policy and no personal cooking is permitted. However, the option of cooking alongside one of the retreat residents and learning about sattwic food preparation and prasad is a possibility during your stay if you choose.

Some special dietary requirements for food allergies can be catered to with prior advance notice. Anahata can cater to vegan and gluten free requirements, but for other required specialty foods or snacks you may wish to bring your own supply. Please confirm when booking if in doubt.

The water at Anahata is from a pure mountain spring and is absolutely safe to drink. Please note that Anahata does not serve coffee, but they do have several nice tea options including black tea.

Driving directions from Nelson

  • If you feel like driving, the venue is 15 kilometers from Takaka, with the last seven kilometers being unsealed. You will have to cross five small fords. A 4WD vehicle is helpful, but many people drive up in 2WD cars without any problem.
  • From Nelson, which is the main city in the north part of the South Island, travel west through the town of Motueka. Note that there are no petrol stations available between Motueka and Takaka, so best to fill up in Motueka. Stick to the speed limits to avoid traps!
  • After crossing the Takaka Hill from Nelson, you will drive towards and into Takaka. Turn right immediately past the Visitors Centre (don't go through Takaka!). *Follow the road to the roundabout at the dairy factory and turn right. Drive towards Pohara Beach for about 10 minutes. The road curves on a big right and then a big left.
  • You will pass Motupipi School (on left), then take the next turn right at the Clifton "+" crossroads.
  • Turn right at the next "T" Junction at Carlyle Street. Follow this road to the next T-junction and turn left continuing on Clifton Road. As you turn you will see an orange "Anahata Retreat" sign.
  • You will come to a gravel road and a sign saying Bird Road. Follow the gravel road (Bird Road) up to the top of the mountain (seven kilometers).
  • You will notice a sign part way up the hill with several family names on it. This is a private driveway or road to their house. Continue on past this drive.
  • There are some shallow fords and various gates. Please leave the gates as you find them (closed if closed).
  • When you are half way up, you will come to two gates side-by-side. Go through the left gate (not the one going down the hill to the farm).
  • When you arrive at the top after approximately 30 minutes' driving you will see a little sign on the other side of the top gate to the right that says Abel Tasman - Wainui Hut. Go through this gate and follow the same gravel / dirt road heading a little left.
  • On your left (a hundred meters or so) you will see a row of big pine trees, a house, and some gardens. There is an “ANAHATA” sign on the fence to the right of the gate. You have arrived. Welcome to Anahata Yoga Retreat!
  • Park outside and walk through the Anahata gate to the office (in front of and attached to the building you see).
