About The Event

ACTIVE HOPE: Join us for an extraordinary, heart-felt journey into enhanced connection and empowerment through Deep Ecology & Yoga 



During this 4-day/3-night residential gathering we will be touching our innermost responses to the condition of our world and reconnecting with our sense of wonder for the web of life.  Strengthened by generations past and encouraged by those yet to come, we can tap our own deep awareness and creativity to chart a course for taking action in a way that brings us alive.

Inna will guide us through experiential practices, poetry, ritual, song, movement and silence to guide our journey through the four stages of the spiral of the Work That Reconnects. These four stages support one another and help us experience first hand that we are larger, stronger, deeper, and more creative than we have been brought up to believe.

We will support our journey with yogic practices lead by Swami Karma Karuna. Guided practices include Asana, Pranayama, Yoga Nidra, and Meditation.

Drawing on the work of Joanna Macy, John Seed and Arne Naess this workshop will empower you to act on behalf of Earth with clarity, love and direction.

No previous experience in Yoga or Deep Ecology necessary.

THE IMPORTANCE OF PLACE: Our host, Anahata Yoga Retreat, Golden Bay, South Island

We are fortunate to be able to immerse ourselves in a quiet, pristine natural setting for this four-day retreat: Anahata Yoga Retreat, situated in the midst of native beech forest with spectacular ocean views bordering the Abel Tasman National Park, offers a supportive and inspiring environment that welcomes everyone regardless of age, background and level of yoga experience. It is a residential eco-­yoga retreat using alternative power, composting toilets and nutritious organic vegetarian meals. Accommodation options include shared accommodation in eco-buildings or camping.



“An essential experience to awaken ourselves to reconnect with our innate nature. Through creative and explorative exercises the workshop lead me to feel and be with myself and others authentically with a joint vision to be part of healing our world.”

~ Jenni Robertson, NZ, 2018

“Inna was a wonderful facilitator of this important work. I am so grateful to her for passionately caring for this work and leading us through it in such a safe and supportive way. We were held so well. The work is powerful and I can recommend it and Inna’s beautiful approach to facilitating.”

~ Amelia, Australia, 2018

"This retreat made me feel really connected to all of my emotions. I felt safe to express them in a healthy way, especially my anger. I now feel more connected to my purpose, my passion and my mission here on Earth.

Inna is a beautiful soul who leads with such grace, presence and love for all beings." 

~ Lauren Hill, NZ, 2019
