Find Your Inner Zen at Peppers Parehua Martinborough

Media Release 11 February 2013

Find Your Inner Zen at Peppers Parehua Martinborough

Martinborough is serving up another fine blend. Not of the wine variety this time; but a perfect combination of health and wellbeing with a special yoga retreat at the boutique Peppers Parehua Retreat from 8 to 10 March.

Led by Kris McIntyre, the host of Australia’s YOGA TV, the Peppers Parehua Weekend Yoga Retreat will combine dynamic yoga, meditation and wholesome cuisine selected and prepared with the balancing properties of macrobiotics.

Designed for beginners through to experienced practitioners, the Weekend Yoga Retreat at Peppers Parehua starts from NZ$370* per person (twin share) or $840 (single supplement) staying in a Winemakers Cottage. A wholesome welcome dinner will take place on the Friday night and over the weekend, guests will enjoy three yoga classes per day with Kris McIntyre, a pamper pack of spa products and all meals prepared at the onsite Pavilion Restaurant.

The Peppers Parehua Weekend Yoga Retreat will be based on the principles of Ryoho Therapy, a combination of corrective yoga therapy, Shiatsu and nutrition. The retreat will address issues related to the respiratory and lower digestive system, strengthening the lungs and increasing vitality and hope.

Peppers Parehua Martinborough offers the perfect location for guests to reconnect with nature and find inner peace. The meticulous sprawling country estate, just over an hour from Wellington has sweeping gardens, a private lake and jetty and panoramic views of the surrounding countryside.

Away from the yoga mat guests will have full use of Peppers Parehua’s tennis court, swimming pool and bicycles available to hire for those who wish to venture further through the village and vineyard trails of Martinborough.
