Why a Yoga Retreat?

When we leave our regular routine and explore new places or spend time with new people, it can give us a different perspective and open us to internal shifts that we can take back to our daily life. We’ll be spending the weekend tuning into our internal worlds and using yogic practices to expand our own personal authenticity.

"An exhilarating and revitalising experience hosted by the most wonderful people who introduced us to new experiences with curiosity and compassion."

"Expand your Light - Waipu Yoga Retreat was perfect for a post lockdown break! Raquel, Stu and Za did a great job at facilitating. They provided an enlightening, relaxing and inclusive experience, paying attention to various levels of yoga experience.The accommodation was excellent, with awesome views all served up with delicious meals! I got to spend time forming new friendships and connecting with some amazing people. My first retreat and looking forward to the next one!"

We look forward to hosting you in Muriwai.
