Cleanse Your Mind and Body as You Feed Your Heart and Soul


Retreat Overview

In the same way that a room collects dust and clutter and needs regular cleaning, the body and mind can collect toxins or blocks that create imbalance or sluggishness in our systems, eventually leading to ill health. A regular inner clean up and the development of positive lifestyle habits are key to maintaining health and wellbeing at all levels.

In this retreat learn Hatha Yoga, traditional detox cleansing practices, and mindfulness and mantra meditations to activate and purify the body and mind. Also, gain modern nutritional tools to support healthy eating, strong digestive powers and balanced body systems and mental states.

  • Hatha Yoga to activate all the body systems
  • Talks on Wholesome Food, Yogic diet, Green Juices, Fermented Foods
  • Heating and cleansing breathing exercises
  • Detox Cleansing Practices
  • Mindfulness Meditation to let go of the old patterns
  • Ana Yoga – conscious and nutritious cooking and eating

Sannyasin Atmabhava came to yoga for the health benefits and the practical and scientific methods immediately made a strong impression on him. He spent 10 years living the yogic lifestyle and teaching yoga, meditation and chanting at Anahata Yoga Retreat. Now back in NZ, Chris works therapeutically in Rimutaka prison and mental health sectors and continues to share on a variety different topics in workshops and weekend retreats around New Zealand.

Sannyasi Priyadhara first came to yoga in her youth and was eventually drawn to the teachings of the Satyananda-Bihar tradition at Anahata Yoga Retreat. A yearning to deepen her experience and understanding of yoga led her to live and receive training under the guidance of Swami Niranjanananda Saraswati at the Bihar School of Yoga in India for a period of her life. The opportunity to imbibe yoga not only as an integral science but as a way of life & culture was a life-changing experience which today inspires Priyadhara to work with people of all ages and walks of life who seek to connect with positivity, find balance in life and express true potential from within.
