Niue yoga and well­ness ad­ven­ture

Good - - WELLBEING GUIDE - ni­ueis­

One of the world’s largest coral is­lands, Niue will host its first yoga re­treat in Oc­to­ber over Labour Week­end. Niue’s at­trac­tions in­clude crys­tal-clear waters for div­ing, great restau­rants, for­est walks, cy­cle tracks and an im­pres­sive set of caves and se­cluded coves. The re­treat will be held over­look­ing the ocean at the Scenic Matavai Re­sort, and run by Well­ness Re­treats NZ founder and yoga teacher Melissa Car­roll and in­te­gra­tive and holis­tic nu­tri­tion­ist Kay­tee Boyd. It’s an ex­cit­ing first for Niue says Felic­ity Bollen, Niue Tourism di­rec­tor of mar­ket­ing.

“It is so ap­pro­pri­ate to host a re­treat of this sort on Niue, which de­fines the phrase ‘chill­ing out’,” says Bollen. “We think this will be an in­cred­i­bly rich and restora­tive ad­ven­ture for the par­tic­i­pants, and hope­fully some­thing we can re­peat in the fu­ture. There cer­tainly aren’t many such re­treats hap­pen­ing in the South Pa­cific.” The re­treat co­in­cides with the tail of the whale-watch­ing sea­son and it’s not un­usual to see the whales from the re­sort. Even bet­ter, it’s only a 3.5 hour flight away. (See page 43 for book­ing de­tails.)
