"The deeper you go within, the
more beautiful you will find
yourself to be."

"I will believe the truth about
myself, no matter how
beautiful it is."

Reconnect to self, each other and nature

What's Happening at Mountain Spirit:
Yin Yoga, Sailing and Backcountry Walks

News in Brief

  • Amanda finishes Yin Yoga Teacher Training in Wellington, hosts retreat in March
  • Building our space: The yurt, tipi, sleepouts, garden, done!
  • Our yacht Astrolabe will be used for a "Serenty Sailing" program
  • Stay tuned, we're firing up the blog again after a hiatus - it's time to start writing again!

We're an off-the-grid organic retreat, near Wanaka, New Zealand. We host invidividuals, families, and groups. Get away for a weekend and relax, or join in one of our programs in the beautiful Southern Alps.

There's a twist: It's not just about going within - meditation & yoga. It's also about connecting with community - with your fellow participants, through activities - sailing, hiking, rock climbing, or even helping out with your fellow particpants in the kitchen.

We provide the space and support for you to go an adventurous journey.


Participants on our programs have a greater appreciation and understanding of their own resources, of other individuals around them, and a better sense of their place in the natural world.

Self reliance, compassion, service, centeredness, wellness and interpersonal community-building, as well as caring for, and understanding of the natural environment, are all hallmarks of our mission.

You'll come away with
an increased sense of joy and peace.
