Come surf, stretch, and strengthen with Tais on this yoga retreat in natural New Zealand! You will stretch every morning to prepare for your day of surfing ahead. You will have personalized small group instruction for yoga, enjoy the beach, and have a relaxing evening practice before sunset. The yoga will be structured to enhance your surf strength and abilities and to stretch your muscles at the end of the day.
You will be accommodated at Waoku Lodge, one of New Zealand's top-rated lodges. The lodge has four luxury apartments, each with its own private deck, spa pool, and spectacular bush and ocean vistas, which offers couples, families, and groups space and serenity to take a real break from the world.
You’ll stay in one of the five-star, self-contained apartments which features two queen bedrooms, a spacious living area, kitchen facilities, a well-appointed bathroom and a private deck and spa pool, the perfect spot for curling up with a book or basking in the glow of a west coast sunset.
Your retreat will retain an intimate, personal feel. You will have your own bedroom to retire to each night (or for a blissful afternoon snooze) and will share your apartment and bathroom with another person. While you’ve probably come away to escape your screens, Netflix and complimentary Wi-Fi are available in each apartment.
Originally from Wahroonga, suburb to the north of Sydney, Australia, it is no secret that Tais is one very positive vibrant person. She has a big love for the sea and yoga lifts her spirit gracefully. Yoga and the ocean calms and compliments her style of practice, and others feed off her light and energy. A well-travelled woman who has met so many other beautiful and like-minded yogis, she has learned many variations and styles like Yin, Restorative, Ashtanga, and Vinyasa yoga. She finally decided that this was her calling. Many years later, Tais was inspired to become a yoga instructor.
This retreat will take place at Waoku Lodge in Whale Bay, Raglan, New Zealand. Located two hours from Auckland, on the west coast of the North Island, Waoku Lodge sits high above the ocean in Whale Bay, Raglan. The world-class surf breaks of Indicators and Whale Bay are just a short stroll away, while a little further down the road are dramatic beaches, gentle harbor waters, and a township brimming with independent galleries, boutiques, and cafes.
Daily breakfast, lunches, and dinners are included in the price. Awake to freshly-ground coffee and a laden breakfast buffet served at an area overlooking the ocean. Linger over long, leisurely lunches. Swap surfing stories over magical dinners and generous glasses of wine.
Locally sourced, seasonal food is the specialty of the lodge which has its own vegetable garden, chickens, bees, and an organic farm right next door. Expect farm-fresh flavors that strike just the right balance between healthy and indulgent. This will be a family-style breakfast with fruit platters, muesli, yoghurt, freshly cooked pastries, and cooked options including omelettes, bacon, tomato dishes, and others.
The breakfast also includes fresh organic juices such as mixed green juice and orange, ginger and beetroot kind of mix. The food will be "farm-to-table," organic, and locally sourced (from the organic farm next door and our own garden, local butchers, and the wharf) with an emphasis on fresh and healthy, and that feeling of indulgence.
A one-hour complimentary massage is included in the price.
Please book your flight to arrive at Auckland Airport (AKL) or John C. Munro Hamilton International Airport (YHM). Transfer from and to the airports are included. Kindly inform Waoku Lodge by email prior to departure.
