Golden Bay, South Island
Anahata Yoga Retreat

Eco-friendly Anahata Yoga Retreat is located on top of a mountain 640 meters above sea level in Golden Bay and offers glorious views of the ocean, Farewell Spit and lush, green valleys. Retreats, personal sessions and daily activities are offered year-round, with a focus on personal growth in the Satyananda tradition, which draws on a number of yoga styles, including Hatha, Raja, Karma, Jnana, Mantra and Bhakti. Different lodging options at this Ashram-style, integral, residential retreat range from shared rooms to a private straw bale round house with beautiful Golden Bay views. Outdoor accommodations are also available, such as tent sites and camping. All meals provided are organic and vegetarian, sourced from local growers or picked fresh from the retreat's garden. Asana takes place inside a straw bale yurt, and other activities include walks, kirtan, cooking or gardening.
