Shambhala Retreat, 1234 Takaka-Collingwood Hwy, Onekaka 7182, New Zealand

Embodied Flow™ 200-hour Foundational Yoga Teacher Training New Zealand

Do you feel called to make a difference in big or small ways in this short, blessed time you have walking this earth ?

It is my experience that all who seek yoga teacher training are pulled by something big! Something magnetic. Something that feels to be just ahead of them and deep within their heart at the exact same time.

They suffer a bitter-sweet yearning for depth of connection.

A yearning that will bless them for a life time. A yearning worth yoking their attention to.

And if moved toward with grace and dedication, this yearning nourishes all other endeavours of their life with the most crystalline life force energy, bringing vitality, flow and freedom to more than just the humble ready student.

Are you ready to transform your life at last ? Do you want to facilitate others into greater ease and wellbeing? Yoga Teacher Training is the ride of a life time. Awakening Arts welcomes you aboard this world class training.

Accommodation is rustic but cozy, think kiwi batch styles. What Awakening Arts loves about this place is the 'non-pretentiousness' allows everyone to drop in and relax.

Rooms are shared, which will be intense at times, but this is excellent fodder for the fires of transformation. Single rooms can be organized for an extra 30 AUD per night.
