Kia Ora and Welcome to Parito Coastal Yoga Retreat
This website will show you all about Parito, and the type of activities and offerings we have been engaged in over the last 10 or so years. Parito welcomes the arrival of a beautiful young couple who are assuming care and guardianship (kaitiakitanga) of this place and enjoying a long term Retreat until we return towards the end of this year (2014).
There will be some organised activities run through Parito. If you wish to be on an email list for information about these events, you can contact Ganapati (firstname.lastname@example.org).
