Fundraiser Retreat

Sat 20—Sun 21 May 2023

Our goal is to raise $10,000 for Hawke’s Bay Foundation.

Cyclone Gabrielle devastated Hawke’s Bay. Land was destroyed, lives were lost, and hearts were broken. We felt a deep calling to do something for a community in need. To show our support, we’ve created a special two-day yoga and wellness retreat, to raise funds for the monumental recovery efforts happening across Hawke’s Bay. We’re offering both one-day and two-day retreat packages, with all profits going to Hawke’s Bay Foundation’s ‘Cyclone Relief Fund’.


River Room at Black Barn, Hawke’s Bay
Perched high on the banks of the Tukituki River and offering spectacular views of Te Mata Peak and beyond, The River Room is an intimate stand-alone venue and the epitome of natural, elegant luxury. Owner Andy Coltart is going above and beyond for the Hawke’s Bay community; generously donating the use of The River Room for our two-day fundraising retreat.
