Practice yoga or meditation, write that song poem or book.  Create space to be. A peaceful and nurturing sanctuary that supports you on your journey of introspection and self awareness. 

Thank you to Randall and Amanda at Mountain Spirit for providing the perfect place to unwind and recharge.
7 Days full of yoga and meditation, lovely hikes, mini road trips, reacquainting with snow, beautiful lakes, fresh homemade bread with apricot jam from their trees, a sweat lodge (that I helped build), and all around outstanding company. Thank you for welcoming me with such open arms, I felt right at home.

I had never done yoga before - Amanda was kind and inclusive and I have come so far - I love how I feel and my incredible flexibility, vitality & energy is so much better and there is nothing I can’t do - Yin has totally changed my life - what’s not to love Yin Yoga in a Yurt in Hawea.

Had a wonderful stay in the bungalow at Mountain Spirit with my partner and our 2 year old son. It was the perfect spot to find some peace and relaxation and take in the beauty of this part of NZ. Randall, Amanda and Dexter were such welcoming hosts, so open to sharing their beautiful space with us and we made some beautiful memories here. Our son loved feeding the lambs, devouring freshly made bread and I got in a beautiful yin yoga class with Amanda. Thank you so much, you have a very special place here. Eve Croskerey
