Yoga retreats

New Zealand based yoga retreats, brought to you by the team at Kanuka Yoga Space. Inspired by vinyasa, hatha, restorative and yin/yang styles of yoga.

We have practiced yoga with like minded souls from around the country, at iconic locations like Mt Ruapehu, Lake Tarawera, Waipu, Bethels Beach and Muriwai.

Yoga retreats provide you with a chance to try something different; change your perspective, learn something new and connect on a deeper, or different level than you normally would.

 

Take your time to connect with others, reflect, journal, listen to yourself, be nourished by delicious food and breath/move mindfully using the practice of Yoga.

MEMORIES FROM INNER COMPASS

WEEKEND YOGA RETREAT - OCT 2023

Inner Compass was the only Weekend Yoga Retreat we were able to host in 2023 and we put in extra time and effort to make sure it was memorable one.

We landed on this theme as it just felt right; spending the weekend in Muriwai with amazing coastal views, nature walks, and a weekend filled with yoga classes, meditation and philosophy chats - what better way to refine your own, inner compass.

Here are our memories from this magical weekend yoga retreat at Kula, Muriwai.

MEMORIES FROM OUR DAY RETREAT - JULY 2023

We're always very grateful to spend time at Kula, Muriwai; this very special place, nestled on top of a hill with gorgeous views of the West Coast, a calming energy and well equipped to host Yoga Retreats.

Our latest one-day Yoga Retreat in July 2023 was as special as anything we've done before, and was a beautiful reminder that human connection, moving, breathing and being intentional has such an important place in our modern worlds.

WILD SPIRIT - WAIPU

MEMORIES FROM NOV 2020

This year, we all decided to take a break from handing out pieces of fruit to our young neighbourhood friends dressed in scary costumes...

 

Instead, we gave ourselves a treat of time and space to relax, unwind, read, practice yoga asana and breathwork, swim, eat, play, learn, dance and connect!
