Workshops and Retreats
September 30th Evolve Day Retreat with Sankalpa
Spring is the perfect time to clear out what is no longer serving you. A time to refresh and look at what you may have been holding that is creating a denseness in your being.
Lighten the energy with our Evolve Day Retreat.
Join us for a morning yoga practice to connect to your body and breath, followed by a nourishing breakfast, followed by a discussion on creation and understanding how our thoughts and feelings create our perceptions.
You’ll have plenty of time to relax, enjoy the beautiful bush setting of Aio Wira, before a deeply transformative Yoga Nidra session. After a delicious lunch, spend time reflecting and relaxing amongst nature, before we come together for our final Energy focused Yoga session.
This one day retreat can help shift your perceptions and raise your frequency to higher feeling emotions. Return to your life with a renewed desire, passion and understanding.
We have purposefully chosen to create this ‘one day’ retreat so that even in your busy schedule and life, you can take just one day and feed and nourish your being.
Join us. You’re worth it!

October 27 - 29 Sacred Feminine Retreat with Rosanna Marks
When groups of like-minded women get together magic is created. Sacred Feminine workshops awaken awareness of the feminine form with beautiful flowing, simple yet sensual dance, yoga and a deeper understanding, honouring and integration of energy and companionship.
Aroha Sacred Feminine healing retreats are designed to empower women, sharing ancient sacred knowledge. During this retreat we bring in the element and sense of touch. An introduction to embracing tantric ritual, sacred circle and an introduction to learning tantric floor massage (fully clothed, energy moving and deeply connecting), then implement this knowledge into your everyday lives, enhancing relationships and benefiting in a more permanent way.
Bellydance, yoga, nature, relaxation, water, copal and white sage cleansing ritual and learning deeply about 5 specific, very simple yoga poses and mediation rituals for Tantric floor massage are all on the agenda for this healing retreat!
Sacred Feminine annual retreats are perfect for beginners and women who have previously attended Aroha sacred feminine retreats. This spring time retreat is perfect for reconnection with nature, clarity, and learning with like-minded women with beautiful energy enhancing movement. Perfect for all levels of yoga and bellydance from beginners to advanced.

“I’ve always felt quite shy, and therefore afraid to take risks within my business and my everyday life. However through clowning, I’ve lost my inhibitions, I feel much more confident and I take life a lot less seriously.” – Belinda Duffy, Graphic Designer
“I learned to be 100% present and connected both on stage and in my everyday life…It has been a springboard to endless possibilities.” – Greg Goodyer, Teacher and Comedian
