You need: Yoga at Shakespeare Cliff Lodge

Everyone who knows me gets an earful on a more than regular basis about my newfound love of yoga and the way it makes me feel, as well as more than a few facts about the wonders it can do for your body and your mind. I attend classes and have private sessions with Vincent Bolletta at Yogashala, who also leads yoga retreats on a regular basis that are reportedly quite a treat. So it is with great fanfare that I’d like to tell everyone about his next one, which will take place at a luxury getaway is located on the Coromandel Peninsula of New Zealand’s North Island. The venue is Shakespeare Cliff Lodge & Retreat, which is nestled amidst the hills above Cooks Beach and surrounded by vineyards. Views overlooking the Pacific Ocean and a beautiful white sand beach just below make this spectacular boutique hotel the ideal destination for activities and relaxation, so lucky for us Vincent’s next Yoga Weekend will be taking place there on September 4 & 5. 
Vincent bases his classes on an "integrated practice" where asana (postures), pranayama (breath work), mantra (sound) and meditation can be incorporated within a single session. This exclusive weekend, designed for a small group to get the most out of the retreat, will deliver the following program:

Friday September 3 - Arrive in the late afternoon for a breathing/meditation session prior to dinner.
Saturday September 4 - there will be three sessions during the day, starting with an early morning one on the beach (weather permitting)
Sunday September 5 – two sessions (depending on the guests’ leaving schedules there may be a 3rd session time permitting) 

All attendees will get a one-on-one session included as part of the weekend’s schedule. These individual sessions allow you to focus on specific areas of your practice, or for meditation coaching. 
Other activities that are worth a bash are walks to the beautiful Cathedral Cove, bush walks, digging hot pools in the sand at Hot Water Beach, golf, surfing - or just relaxing in front of the open fire or in the Lodge hot tub! All meals, accommodation, yoga and your private coaching sessions are included in the $600.00 package,
and accommodation is on a shared basis with two guests per room. All levels of expertise are welcome, and the retreat will have a maximum of eight attendees all up. For bookings email I can't guarantee that you'll ned up looking as super glorious as Christy here but hey, you can but try!
