A serious thank you to Anahata Yoga Retreat. For the yoga and so much more. Coming to NZ in a state of let's say less than me. And worse than I consciously thought. I found myself in this magical place up in the mountains where someone & several others acknowledged me for the condition I was in. They took me in, shook me a little bit more awake & let me see that there was still life in me. It seems that in the chaos we all live in, as Lena Dunham puts it "we can only control the chaos we create around us", sometimes one place can really make a difference. Life events took an unexpected turn & so did our paths but no matter what, I am forever grateful for the experiences and the people I have met.
My life has made such a big change since the retreat. I wake up earlier every morning to do my early morning yoga and meditation! I also changed my diet, following the one from Anahata, organic, no processed food... and I'm feeling great! I feel more creative and I don't get frustrated easily. I'm so grateful with everything I have experienced and what is happening in my life. Anahata was exactly what I needed to start this beautiful journey.
I feel quite different after my time at Anahata. I have reduced the ‘toxins’ from my diet, started a better sleeping routine, increased my home yoga practice and am loving the sense of purpose and calm that seems to be part of my daily life now.
Thank you so much – timing is everything and clearly the timing of my immersion into Anahata was exactly right for me.
If your looking for a peaceful, spiritual, connected place to retreat and immerse yourself, learn, heal and be nourished then Anahata is the place for you. The people, ceremony, native environment and the knowledge/wisdom that is shared up there is the best!!
Really appreciate your way of making the world and our community better. Thank you for everything you are doing. Wonderful people and place; I really enjoyed my stay with you and will be back!
A heartfelt thank you to your lovely team that attended and presented at the Yoga Festival 2018 in Auckland! I really enjoyed your presentations and found them thoroughly enriching; sharing old yoga principles in a way easily understood and made relevant in our modern way of life is a true gift. Your session content, presentation delivery (supported by great hand outs) and care to enable so many to fit into the room are all proof; that you do what you do really well! I wish you well for your wonderful work; changing and enhancing peoples lives where you get a chance to touch them. Namaste and Thank you
I had the most beautiful, energising and relaxing, informative and enabling time at Anahata. The setting is stunning. The teachers are approachable and supportive. I learned tools that helped me to progress in my own practices and gained greater insight, knowledge and understanding. The connections made were beautiful. I have already returned once for a Havan Ceremony and I will continue to do so, for I feel so at peace and held in this amazing community space. Love and thanks x
Anahata Retreat and the beautiful wise souls that welcome you there are hard to describe adequately. If you are even slightly thinking you might need some ‘me time’ or want to know more about what yoga really is, then book your stay.
An open door into a way of life that is effective and empowering. It's the real deal. An authentic exposure to the essence of living Yoga.
I joined the New Years Retreat to surprise one of my close friends, I'd never even been to a Yoga Class...so wasn't aware of what was to come.
What a treat. As one of the teachers said to me...if you want to learn about Yoga and the holistic lifestyle...you've taken the Golden option.
Simply a fabulous way to embrace the New Year with beautiful people at one New Zealand's top locations. I highly recommended for those that want to understand what Yoga has to offer...and for those like me that are brand new to the yoga experience, go for it.
Thank you to the residents and teachers. Your knowledge and support were outstanding. The lessons will be with me for a lifetime.
