Kanuka Yoga at Yoga Paradise
Kanuka Yoga Space was recently invited to our inaugural Yoga Retreat at Paradise View in Waipu.
The weather was promising to be a stunning weekend. The beds were made, the yoga floor swept, the fridge’s stocked. The stage was set for our first Yoga retreat at Paradise View.
We waited in excited anticipation for everyone to arrive. Many of the group arrived Friday evening and it was joyous to hear the buzz of conversation as people met for the first time, connected and started to get to know each other. By 9am the following morning, the rest of the group had arrived, and we kicked off with our welcome meeting and a delicious shot of green vegetable juice.
The rest of the weekend was filled with yoga, meditation, singing and talking, sharing cacao, swimming in the pool, sitting in the sun, resting and sleeping, eating delicious food and dancing on the beach at the full moon.
There was fun and quiet time, laughter and tears, hugs and kisses, learning new skills and developing experiences, New friends were made, and relationships deepened.
We are full of gratitude for the amazing people that came along and fully engaged in the weekend, shared their skills and knowledge and made our first retreat such a success.
