Following directly on from the Kriya Yoga Retreat in June, this special winter retreat will give you time for personal practice and development, study, time to develop art, writing or inspirational pursuits, and/or a time of silence. As a self-guided retreat you get to set your own pace and outcomes.

Anahata is the ideal environment for this focused withdrawal from the busy world, with options for shared or private stays.
This retreat will suit anyone wanting to develop their yogic practice, as well as writers, artists, meditators, Tai Chi or yoga practitioners, or people who just want to chill out and have quiet space. You could also take time to walk, and explore the nearby Abel Tasman National Park during your stay. Stays will be 1 - 5 weeks, with each weekly stay beginning on a Monday. The first week starts 19 June.

We will continue through the month with an easy schedule of daily practices. All these practices are optional and light guidance will be available if needed.

Practices over the week include:

Karma yoga is optional, but needs to be decided at booking as the price varies for those who give of their time as a Karma Yogi during their stay. Accommodation options are simple, but comfortable, and can be either shared (gender specific) or private. There is also a self-contained straw bale yurt (sleeps 1 - 2) offering a more comfortable private stay, and a separate house with private room options or shared stays.

Weekly Start Time: 3pm Monday - arrival/registration. Weeks start 19 and 26 June, and 3, 10 and 17 July.
Weekly Finish Time: 11am Monday
Complimentary pick up: each Monday 5.45pm Takaka I-site
Complimentary drop off: each Monday 11am back to Takaka I-site
