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.




"Awesome experience that gave opportunities for self development and a deepening passion for yoga and wellbeing.  YogAscend and Kanuka yoga went above and beyond and created something special and I cannot wait to be apart of their next retreat. Highly recommend!"

"An absolutely wonderful and uplifting yoga retreat at the stunning Lake Tarawera. It really was a heavenly way to spend a weekend. From the moment we arrived we were greeted with big warm smiles, amazing views and a beautiful, thoughtful goodie bag. 


Jock, Raquel and Stu made us all feel so welcome and the level of care was exceptional. We we're spoilt with all the array of activities and delicious food and drinks. 


I still can't believe that in acro yoga I was sitting on someone's hands! Yoga on the lake was so much fun mixed in with tranquil meditation and topped off with a refreshing swim in the lake. The silent hike was beautiful and allowed time for introspection and to reflect on the weekend. 


What a bunch of super lovely people to be surrounded by. So positive and accepting of the whole group. The flow of the weekend was perfect, there was so many connections made, new experiences and lots of laughs. it certainly wont be a weekend I will forget."

"Having never really done yoga before the retreat, I went not knowing what to expect. After this weekend I can tell everyone that I would gladly go again as it was an excellent experience and will recommend that everybody go try it.
