Kawai Purapura is the Maori term for that eternal oneness that exists within the heart of all peoples and all creation. As a whole, it signifies a haven where nature abounds with mature trees, indigenous birds and flowing streams and brings a sense of being at peace with ourselves and the world surrounding us.
The Yoga Teacher Training is held and accommodated at Kawai Purapura, Albany, Auckland – a 20-minute drive from Auckland CBD, 40 minutes by car from Auckland International Airport and, while set in native bush, is just a stroll away from a large shopping mall.
In addition to being a yoga school, Kawai Purapura is both a retreat centre and holistic village located in native New Zealand bush, that offers a natural and tranquil setting for many energetic yoga and spiritual practices, alongside music, dance, healing and natural therapies.
