Corporate Wellness & Mindfulness Programs


Sanctuary Hill Retreats corporate wellness programs can be tailored to suit your business. We have a wide range of offerings including short classes and workshops through to full day courses and team building events and retreats.

In 2022, we were endorsed by Exercise NZ as Stress Management Providers. These programs are:

Tax Deductible and no Fringe Benefit Tax

Even on our best days, stress can prevent us from being fully focused and doing our best work. Too much of it can lead to burnout, disengagement, more sick days, and strained relationships in the workplace. It has never been more critical for businesses to address the mental well-being of their team head on. Our mindful program leads to healthier organization from the inside out.​


We currently work within many industry areas including Oil and Gas, Health sector, Schools, Professional sports and more.

Benefits from this Program:

  • Healthier employees operating under manageable levels of stress will be happier and more positive, helping to maintain a strong, healthy workplace culture that's conducive to creativity and productivity.

  • It will also reduce the amount of sick days taken by employees due to a weakened immune system as a result of excessive stress.

  • Employees who aren’t overly stressed are much more likely to stick around, and prospective employees are much more likely to work for an employer that promotes a low-stress work environment and takes the initiative to help keep their employees healthy.

  • Actively working to reduce stress through measures like stress management programs and policy shows that you care about your employees and their health and happiness.

It has been a long journey since we first tapped into yoga. We have both studied under the Sivananda Yoga Organization, which led us to run the Sivananda Yoga Centre in NZ for about 10 years. During that time, we led various retreats and workshops which ignited our intention to keep developing our centre. We also both worked at the amazing Aro Ha retreat centre in Queenstown.

We believe that teaching is about giving back what Yoga has already given to us. We have two beautiful kids which are our best teachers in service. 

We have a passion not just for teaching yoga and wellness but also living it. We feel that by connecting to all elements of nature around us, it helps us tune into the nature of peace within ourselves.
