Put down your phones, open your minds, and just BE.
Allow us and our extended whānau to treat you to a weekend of yoga, guided walks, weaving, and of course, SUP. Let the stories of old transport you to a different time away from all the toils of modern society. Absorb the values of the Maori culture and healing properties of the water and native bush to enhance your overall well-being.
Never tried stand up paddle boarding? No worries, this retreat also includes a SUP lesson for those who want it.
You will have opportunities to paddle and swim a private lake, view the awesome glow worms at night, learn about the native bush, and take away a flax taonga woven by yourself. Share food and conversation (and wine) with like-minded women, sing and move to your heart's content.
This is also a weekend of bonding and building friendships...
We will be staying in an exclusive Māori marae-style accommodation - that is a communal sleeping hall, or wharenui. Mattresses, pillows and sheets will be provided, just bring your blanky. This sleeping arrangement encourages whanaungatanga, or a sense of family connection, making for bonds that could last a lifetime. All food will be provided, but we'll work together as a whānau (family) to prepare our meals.
Upon registration, you will soon after receive further information, including the agenda and what to bring. The event runs from 6pm Friday 28 September through to 2pm Sunday 30 September. Perfect timing as we see out the tail end of winter, and say kia ora to summer.
Naturally, you will have plenty of questions to ask before registering, so feel free to email or call us about this Ladies Only Retreat - Te Okiokinga.
