by sunsalute Comments Off on Wintering – a yoga retreat
I’m delighted to offer this very gentle and restful retreat, in the later days of winter at the very pleasant and simple Waitetuna Retreat Centre.
The retreat runs from Friday night to Sunday afternoon (with an option to just attend the Saturday). It’ll comprise of morning and afternoon yoga, chanting, meditation, beautiful food, time for a massage and plenty of rest and quiet time. If we are lucky enough to have Claudia Williams free, a ‘story time’ in the evening and maybe a yoga nidra before bed time. Art supplies and crafting/knitting supplies out to use, but mostly … lots of rest and literally quiet or silent time.
This is an ‘art of wintering’ retreat. There is a wood burner in the dining room and cosy woollen blankets in the bedrooms.
The accommodation … is a very simple shared style. The rooms are comfortable, clean and tidy as a pin and very sweet. There is something entirely appropriate and uplifting about the simplicity and pared back nature of the accommodation that will match the retreat – away from the mod-cons of urban living and the demands that come with it. They are shared rooms and in most cases, just 2 per room. There are one or two bigger rooms where there’ll need to be 3 or 4 maximum. The shared bathrooms are serviced each day.
And about the retreat centre itself:
The retreat centre has, apart from the accommodation block; a practice room, a dining room and a beautiful meditation hut set back from the main buildings, all with a big garden and surrounded by bush. The retreat centre is 4kms at the end of a road in a very quiet bush setting equidistant between Hamilton and Raglan. It was originally used as a school camp, many years ago, but is now run and owned by the Foundation for Higher Learning. It is hired out for meditation retreats and gatherings with a kaupapa for art, spirituality and cultural work. The garden is reflective of the care and positive energy about the place.
I welcome your enquires. Please get in touch. I am happy to answer specific questions, particularly about the ‘day visitor’ option, which could suit some of you.
