What To Expect?

We've created a day of activities dedicated to speak to the masculine. Allowing space to learn by doing, utilising physical/mindful movement, dedicated time to explore sauna and ice baths and learning/reflecting on what it means to harness your masculine energy. Breath will be our anchor for the day; we'll explore some breathing techniques to use in our yoga flow and for the sauna/ice immersion.

The day will flow like this:

  • Become familiar with the people and space

  • Exploring the Waitakeres and enjoying a warm drink in nature

  • Breathwork and guided meditation

  • An energising yoga practice (influenced by Hatha and Vinyasa)

  • Learning, discovering and reflection on the ego, vulnerability, resistance and courage; topics discussed throughout the day

  • Sauna and ice bath combo

  • A mixture of uplifting and grounding, peaceful sounds

  • Cleansing juice shots and nourishing food to re-fuel for the evening

  • Space and time to share and connect

If you are curious if this day is right for you, please reach out to Stu at or David at

We look forward to hosting you in September.
