Retreats will be held in New Zealand at the fully residential YMCA Wainui Park Conference Center, just 1-1/2 hours drive from Christchurch in the South Island. The conference center is situated in some of the most spectacular scenery in all of the South Island far from the hustle and bustle of city life. A chartered bus is arranged to depart Christchurch city on the commencement day of your event, and will return you to Christchurch on the day of departure.
Wainui Park Conference Center is a beautiful modern purpose-built facility with a spacious yoga studio, dining facilities, and modest but comfortable rooms. Every bedroom has a private ensuite and direct access to the sun deck with views across the valley. Single, double and dorm room accommodation can be arranged to suit your budget but is done on a first come, first served basis.
There are pockets of native bush throughout Banks Peninsula and the beach is a 10 minute walk away!
We have worked together with the Wainui caterers to produce a menu which focuses on simple, fresh and delicious vegetarian food. Some fish and eggs will be available for non-vegetarians on request. Although we cannot specifically cater for non-dairy and non-wheat diets, there are always plenty of options given at each meal to allow you to make alternate choices. There is some extra refrigeration space for those that need to bring special supplements or foods.
