Sakura is a safe haven

Nestled in amongst a planting of 100 Cherry Blossom Trees, Sakura is tucked away in the beautiful, mystical rolling hills of the Waikato in the land of the long white cloud, New Zealand.  Set on 12 acres, the property was designed according to Vaastu principles. Vaastu is an ancient Indian science of architecture and pertains to the physical, psychological and spiritual order of the built environment in consonance with the cosmic energies.


A place of beauty, comfort and peace 

At Sakura you can visit us as a day guest at one of our courses or scheduled events, a retreat guest, or simply spend some time enjoying our luxurious accommodation and beautiful surroundings as a homestay guest.

Sakura is the perfect place for romance to blossom under the shade of our cherry blossom trees.

Support your wellbeing

As a retreat guest at Sakura you will meet a team of loving souls who understand how stressful life can be, how emotion can impact the body, and how food and exercise nourish and heal. We are committed to guiding you on a path that leads you to deep self enquiry, a healthy body, a balanced mind and ultimately a contentment and appreciation of all life. 

Along the way, you will study the art of mindfulness: how to relax, de-stress, and be more present and joyful in your life. You will learn ways of eating that nourish and support your wellbeing. You may even learn how to cook a meal or two! You will also be taught how to listen to your body, love your body and move in ways that energise, heal and invigorate you.  

We are here for you

If you are experiencing sadness.  We understand, we all do.  We are here for you.  In a safe space you will be supported to be with your emotions in a way that inspires transformative change, encourages the breaking of negative repetitive cycles, and brings peace.  At Sakura we only work with small groups, enabling us to focus on each person, and making sure that you have all the support you need to heal.

And if thats not enough of a journey…

Because everyone loves a mystery, on retreat your schedule will also include magical outings to surprise destinations.  You will discover the surreal beauty of the Central North Island, and the surreal beauty of you.
