Yoga Retreats + Ocean Safaris

Leigh-based Swimming/Yoga Retreats with YogiFish

Ahoy, beautiful salty souls!

I’m super excited to offer three new sand & land boutique adventures based in my hometown of Leigh (1 hour north of Auckland)!

Leigh offers some of the most stunning coastlines with NZ’s oldest marine reserve, secluded bays, crystal-clear inlets, caves, and underwater canyons. There’s something here for every urchin among you.
