You can also add in extras such as personal health coaching, an extra yoga class, or a massage at additional cost. 

After your morning yoga class, the pristine beaches, native bush and iconic landscape of the Whangarei Heads Peninsula await you. All levels of fitness can be nurtured and challenged in this  Yoga and hiking retreat. Hikes range from flat beach walks to 5 hour mountain trails.
Your choice of room is well appointed and includes all linen. Enjoy panoramic views from a private deck off the guest lounge.
Your host is passionate about healthy food, and puts flare and imagination as well as taste into the vegetarian meals prepared fresh for you. Food sensitivities and special dietary requirements are no problem. Jo is happy to share her recipes and open to meal time discussions about nutrition.
