Hanmer Springs Yoga Retreat, September 1st & 2nd 2018

On Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd September, I will be hosting a wonderful weekend retreat at the alpine village of Hanmer Springs, a thermal resort that offers a soothing environment for you to relax and unwind in.

The weekend will be held at the Heritage Hotel in Hanmer, a turn of the century lodge that has been beautifully restored. The yoga sessions are held in the ballroom, with an open fire to add to the ambiance.

The Saturday morning session will run from 9am - midday and the afternoon session will be from 1.30pm - 4.30pm.  These sessions will be a mixture of discussion and practice.  Sunday morning session will be from 9.am - midday, also a mixture of discussion and practice, and an afternoon session from 1.30pm - 3.30pm. Discussion covers the theory behind the practice, how you make yoga powerful and deeply peaceful for you as an individual and will cover detail on asana, pranayama and meditation.  Included in the retreat will be a detailed understanding on how to create and maintain a daily yoga practice.

The early bird price for the weekend is $210 (if paid by the 1st August), and $250 thereafter, covering tuition and refreshments. 

I really appreciate your support of these weekends!  The price for the retreat has hardly varied over the last 7 years, but I have had a significant increase in venue cost, both in Hanmer and Wanaka, hence the increase in price.  I hope this still makes the weekend possible for you.

There is a wonderful range of accommodation in Hanmer, however if you wish to stay at the Heritage Hotel they have offered us their corporate rates. You can book yourself and mention you are with the Pure Yoga retreat to receive the discount.

For further details on the accommodation and contact details, view the Heritage Hotels website.
