Relax – Refresh – Revive

5 March – 10 March 2020

Important! This retreat has been changed to a weekend retreat. Please click here for further info and to book. 

Join Yoga teacher, Jamila Knopp, for a fabulous six days of wellness in the beautiful natural coastal setting of Kaiteriteri, New Zealand.

You will enjoy daily yoga classes, mindfulness, and guided meditations. Between classes, you will have time to explore this stunningly beautiful area with the option of activities including mountain biking, hiking, paddleboarding, kayaking, skydiving or helicopter ride. Or just relax and enjoy your free time staying in this delightful resort. Resort activities include tranquil native bush walks, a unique glow-worm walk, and scenic beach walking. Or would you like swimming in either the indoor or outdoor pool, relaxing in the spa pool, sauna, steam room, or just reading a book on the sundeck overlooking the breathtaking Kaiteriteri beach?

You will also experience a special guided Maori tour excursion to the healing waters of the Riwaka resurgence natural spring which is a sacred Maori site.

The Kimi Ora Eco Resort is ideally situated at the gateway to the world-famous picturesque Abel Tasman National Park. It is a unique resort that combines the finest European pampering with the best New Zealand has to offer. There is something to delight everyone – from exotic spa treatments to delicious meals or the simple beauty of a birdcall. In Maori, the word Kimi Ora means “seek health” which reflects the purpose of this retreat – to find your inner balance and to create well-being. The Kimi Ora resort has a very special energy which is perfect for a yoga retreat.

We welcome all yoga levels and all ages!
