Rejuvenate from the inside out during this special weekend retreat designed to recharge your body, mind and spirit through yoga, song, dance, storytelling, meditation and community. Not to mention staying in the stunning setting of the Marlborough vineyards with nutritious food to nurture!
Choose to fully immerse yourself over the weekend with sunrise practises before two full days of yoga, chanting, live music, meditation, Thai massage and delicious food.
If you prefer to join solely during the day, a 9 to 5.30 option is available.
Leza Lowitz, author, yogini and meditation guide, will return to Marlborough after many requests from students who attended her previous retreats!
Lowitz's classes interweave the power of mindfulness, the awakening of sensation through yoga, and the wisdom of philosophical tradition through poetry and storytelling. She is an award-winning author who uses her passion for writing and language to engage students deeper with their physical practise and meditation.
Leza is a popular yoga teacher and beloved teacher trainer who travels around the world teaching yoga, meditation, and self-transformation--when she isn't at home minding her teenage son, wolf dogs, kamikaze husband, and Sun & Moon Yoga, the popular studio she founded 16 years ago in Tokyo.
We are thrilled to invite Daphne Tse to co-host the Tune-Up for Body, Mind & Soul Yoga Retreat, her first visit to New Zealand. Daphne is a spirited, soulful artist and yoga teacher originally from Texas. She has travelled extensively sharing her music and teachings around the world. She is the co-creator of Vibrance, an embodied movement, sounding, singing and fully integrated practice that brings us back to our medicinal roots of the yoga of dance & sound.
Daphne embraces the teachings of Ammachi, Pema Chodron, O.P. Tiwari, Erich Schiffman, Shiva Rea and Mark Whitwell in her daily practice. Traveling around the world in 2019, Daphne has shared this practice in Bali, Costa Rica, India, Thailand, Japan, China, Europe and beyond. Daphne has co-created retreats and workshops with her longtime friend Leza, in Japan, and they are excited to offer their first retreat together in New Zealand.
Come and experience grace and joy for living life fully with Daphne's soulful teachings and music combined with Leza's wisdom, meditation and awakening yoga.
