WILD SPIRIT - WAIPU
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!
MEMORIES FROM OCTOBER 2020
Photos, words and a beautiful video of the Spring Soul day retreat now avaiable.
A day filled with sunshine, nature, yoga classes, music, guided philosophy chats, connection with others and amazing food!
We are blessed to have a strong community of people lifting each other up.

Check out the recap from our beautiful Lake Tarawera Retreat on Auckland Anniversary weekend of 2019.
Water activities on the lake, silent hikes through the forest, natural hot springs, boat rides, yoga and meditation and some lifelong connections made.
"Raquel, Stu and Za did a great job at facilitating. They provided an enlightening, relaxing and inclusive experience, paying attention to various levels of the 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!"
