"perfect balance"

This retreat had the perfect balance. Every day there was enough yoga that I felt like I had done yoga, enough hiking that I felt like I had hiked, enough meditation that I felt totally relaxed, and enough time to sit in a hammock doing nothing but look at the ocean that I felt like I was on vacation. It was truly a perfect stay in the perfect location surrounded by lovely people.

"Unique and wonderful"

I was really made to feel part of the community by Cameron and Jo. The location of the Whangerai Heads Yoga Retreat Center/B&B is superb. The accommodations and grounds are lovely - comfortable, cozy, welcoming and offer breathtaking views of McLeod Bay, Mt. Manaia and Mount Albans. All the meals provided were delicious and great care was taken to cater to multiple dietary restrictions. The yoga classes were excellent. The hiking paths are glorious.

I had an awesome and relaxing time at the yoga retreat. The meals were healthy and fresh. The hiking trips amazing. Jo told us so many things about our beautiful environment, the nature and the animals. During the nights we heard the Kiwis and Morporks what was really cool.

"Une fabuleuse retraite à recommander!!!"

L'accueil, le confort de l'hébergement et ses superbes vues, le sauna, les cours de yoga, le chant nocturne de kiwis, la proximité de la mer, les bains matinaux, les points de vue imprenables sur les chemins de randonnées, la diversité des essences végétales rencontrées...

"Very beautiful spot on earth"

I had a great time a WHY yoga retreat. If u are need to calm down and reconnect to nature. This is the place for you. There are many beautiful tracks with breathtaking views in this area. Some of them are just a couple of footsteps away from the retreat. The rooms are very comfortable and the food is delicious and healthy. Oh yeah and not to forget about the view from the terasse and from two of the three bedrooms. Beautiful! I had a really great stay and would love to come back. In the end I would have liked to stay more than 6 days. But it was time to move on for me.
