NZ 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 NOV 2020 - HALLOWEEN
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!
