"The Maruia thermal springs retreat was amazing! Great location, food, people and of course the yoga. Highly recommended. I can't wait for the next one! Thank you Amanda."

"I did the spring retreat last November and it was one of the best things I've ever done for myself... I left feeling focused, energised, lost some weight and totally loving yoga, which I now do at home every day. Amanda is passionate and such an amazing yoga teacher. So I say do this retreat - you won't regret it."

"I came to the yoga retreat very excited to be spending time relaxing, restoring and learning. The retreat was fantastic. I couldn't have been more relaxed. Amanda has a very gentle, kind, comforting demeanor. I enjoyed the free time to relax and restore. The yoga sessions were equally restoring and refreshing. The location and setting of the retreat was perfect. Thank you, Amanda."
"During our time attending Amanda's yoga sessions, we found her very personable and caring as she offered ways to build and develop our practice. She helped us to understand the benefits of yoga for our health and wellbeing, offering other ways to hold a pose on those days when a pose just wasn't going to happen. We would certainly recommend to anyone the value of participating in her yoga sessions"

Amanda organised a lovely balanced programme of yoga, walks and self care information, yoga practice and hot pool relaxation.
Not to mention the delicious nutritious food prepared by Tom the chef. It was innovative and exciting.
The group of women were very supportive, and caring we so enjoyed each other’s company as well as having time to rest and relax. I would certainly recommend Amanda’s retreat at Maruia for an uplifting nourishing and restful experience in a beautiful place.
