Limited spaces!

This retreat is filling up fast!

Join myself and yoga teacher Wendy Douglas for a weekend of holistic Well-Being in the stunning Aiowira centre, deep in the lush tranquility of the Waitakere ranges, only a 30 minute drive from Auckland City.

Immerse yourself in this weekend of wellbeing, find some space to rest, reflect and restore. You will leave energised, and inspired to fully engage with your life upon your return.

My whole life has been a long and winding journey towards a greater understanding of well-being - an experience of abundant energy, joy, contentment and a clear sense of purpose. I have found that there a few key ingredients that are vital to our physical, emotional, mental and spiritual wellbeing.

This retreat will focus on this holistic approach. Throughout the weekend we will engage in energy restoring wellness practices:

  • Mindfulness
  • Meditation
  • Yoga (flow based astanga in the morning and yin and restorative in the evening)
  • Mindfulness in nature
  • Spa and sauna are on site to further promote deep relaxation and a sense of wellbeing
  • Delicious organic energy restoring food will be served (we will start the day with a window of intermittent fasting and a freshly pressed organic juice to lightly detox).

Meditation workshops are a way to remember to stay present as it is a wonderful, joyful, magical experience. Maya’s approach is very calming and peaceful. She is always knowledgeable.” - Jasmine  


  “This was my first workshop. It was a chance to stop and revisit what I love. I can sit, breathe and observe and appreciate myself. Maya has a presence and an aura, her delivery is calm and perfect for me. She feeds your soul.”
