Parito Coastal Yoga Retreat

Kia Ora and Welcome to Parito Coastal Yoga Retreat


Parito Yoga Retreat is devoted to honouring and nurturing the life essence, wholeness, and well-being of people and the land.


Parito is located on the west coast of the North Island of New Zealand, in the community of Ruapuke, near Raglan, an hour from Hamilton and 2-3 hours from Auckland.  Karioi is the maunga (mountain) who watches over Parito and surrounding lands. Parito, surrounded by nature, looks northward to Karioi and the bushlands encircling her and looks westward towards Tangaroa (Tasman sea) and Karewa (Gannet Island).



Parito has been offering a range of retreat options, including personal yoga and meditation retreats available throughout the year for beginners as well as for those who are experienced.  Also available have been organised retreats, workshops and events including cleansing retreats; meditation and silence retreats; retreats for well-being and retreats for management of stress), and mindful sustainable living retreats. Retreats are provided in a peaceful coastal setting within a cosy, clean, comfortable and techno-free environment.  


At January 2015:  We are grateful that Parito has found new Kaitiaki/guardians who will be living at Parito for the long term.  Sorry we are not able to offer any retreat programmes at this time until further notice.


If you need to contact Atmavidya or Pete, contact The Vishuddhi Yoga Centre (; or ring 03 9813228).  We are running yoga classes, workshops and some retreat programmes from there. 


At Parito, your whole well-being and your individual needs is the focus.
