Photo shoot Feature: Wellness Retreats New Zealand

For the past year I have had the pleasure of photographing for Wellness Retreats New Zealand. I have been inspired on every retreat to think twice about the effects of our nutritional choices, the chemicals we subject our bodies to everyday (soaps and cosmetics), how we exercise, how we sleep, how we live. Surrounded by amazing people and hearing presentations from the most respected names in the Wellness Industry it's a day not to be missed (held regularly throughout the year).

"Wellness Retreats NZ brings together New Zealand’s most inspirational and talented wellbeing professionals, like-minded brands and fabulous venues to create beautifully balanced days of wellness."

"Set in luxurious surroundings, their retreats comprise of energising yoga, educational seminars, practical workshops, guided meditation and one-on-one consultations to help you nourish mind, body and soul."

An experiential journey to Bali with H+H LIFESTYLE

On a winters Sunday morning here in Auckland a bunch of gorgeous yogini's gathered at East West Studio in Ponsonby to be taken on a experiential yoga journey to Bali. The event was the creation of H+H LIFESTYLE who are so excited about their Bali retreat happening on 17th-23rd July that they decided to show us what blissful activities they have in store for their guests. With a little imagination we were transported to tropical Canggu where we rode on scooters, saluted to the sun, worked our cores ready for our bikinis, took our yoga practice from the mat to the surf board and had relaxing meditations to the sound of ocean. 

Afterwards we were delighted by a Bali inspired smoothie bowls loving made by Bowl and Arrow http://www.bowlandarrow.co.nz so delicious and full of yummy healthy goodness.

The girls in the room who are going on H+H's all inclusive luxe retreat can look forward to experiencing the real deal. A week of Yoga, Fitness, Wholefoods, Wellness Seminars, Spa Pampering and Massage, Connection, Meditation, Surfing and glorious photographs capturing the magical experience taken by...............ME!!!!!!! Thank you Universe.

Words can't describe how excited I am to be invited on this journey of women giving back to themselves, honouring their bodies and minds. 

They have one spot left for one lucky lady so if this sounds just like what you need (well 'want'...it is the dream week after all) then check out H+H's website,  meet it's founder the gorgeous positivity powerhouse yoga teacher Abbeylee, and read all about the retreat https://www.thehhlifestyle.com 

I hope you enjoy these photo's, stay tuned for part two of the story xxx
