On your retreat you will be immersed in Mother Nature. You will boost your immune system and calm the fluctuations of the mind, through diving deeper into your yoga/ meditation practice or starting from a place of new.
The opportunity to explore the lush sub tropical forest and gardens within the property and beautiful nearby golden sand beaches. Daily you will be served wholesome, organic locally sourced foods, prepared with love and precision. Immerse yourself in the Balinese style salt water spa or pre-book for an in house massage.
There will be time for you to socialise on the day beds, read or journal. The fire will be lit in the evenings then retreat to your private boutique room, waiting for you will be a cosy personal robe.


My mission is the take you on a journey, to a place of calm and confidence where you can unravel.

With 1-2 yoga practices daily. There will be a variety: Abundant Flow, Sweet Slow Flow to ignite and awaken. YIN Wisdom offered in the late afternoon / evenings for rest and to dive deeper into you. Each class includes pranayama  (breath work) and meditation.

I’m truly honoured to share with you that Michelle Allen will be my special guest teacher.
“Deepest bow of gratitude to Simmy for inviting me along to share with you a nurturing and nourishing heartwarming practice.  Together we will explore yoga asana, pranayama, meditation and crystal sound bowl healing to lead us into our deepest listening so we may learn and live from our own innate wisdom.  Through my own experience I have come to understand that when we practice with attention and deepest care we are practising for everyone, we are creating a ripple of healing that the entire world receives.”


AKITO will lovingly source and prepare, breakfast, lunch and dinner for you daily, no cleaning no organising – stress free, just relax and enjoy every bite. All meals served will be vegetarian with a seafood option.
 There will be no alcohol present on this wellness retreat, a time to rest the brain and liver. Don’t worry there will be organic coffee and a bounty of herbal teas to sip sip away.


Immerse your whole self in Mother Nature. There will be a breath work session followed by cold water therapy. You have the choice to bath in the ocean or cold shower in the lodges outdoor shower.
Palm Beach is a short stroll down the hill from the lodge.
It’s a full moon on 20th September,  we will create a sacred space for you to journal, meditate and release any old tired seeds in a full moon ceremony.


There are 4 houses, the atrium and a newly built solarium located within the privacy of Kauri Springs Lodge Resort, Waiheke.
We will practice yoga outside in the gardens or in the tranquil atrium.
 The resort is plentiful. Space to breath, explore and rest.
There will be staff and myself to help assist you with any special requests you may have.
Each house has room service daily and waiting for you will be fluffy white towels, eco friendly shampoo, conditioner and body wash… OK amazing right.
Phew you are nearly there.


The lodge is located in Palm Beach about 25 min drive from the passenger ferry on Waiheke.
Ferries leave from Auckland CBD Quay Street wharf, or Devonport wharf.  Approx 45 minutes boat ride.
Or if you choose to take your car to the island, 15 min drive from transporter terminal.
The ferry ticket (and in house massage)  are the only fees NOT included in retreat packages. You will need to book this online yourself prior to your retreat through Fullers or at the wharf terminal office box.
Adult return tickets are $35 when purchased online, this is an off peak travel price (travel between 12:01pm-3:29pm) which you most definitely can do.
There is a bus that can take you to Palm Beach. Bus stops at lodge driveway or you could organise a taxi to share with a friend.
*Highly recommend taking the 1pm Quay St Auckland CBD ferry -as this will stop at
1.10pm Devonport -Waiheke ferry.
I understand life, children, our families and work all come into play when co-ordinating a 3 day excursion so just make your way
