 Welcome to Sakura Sanctuary 

Here you will be supported and seen as you come home to yourself.

Sakura Sanctuary is a place of beauty, comfort and peace. Here we welcome you into a sacred, spiritual place and space. Here we use yoga, meditation and other nurturing practices to help you return to your natural state of flow. 

You can enjoy Sakura Sanctuary’s luxurious accommodation and beautiful surroundings as a member of our growing spiritual community, as a day guest at one of our classes, workshops or events, as a yoga and meditation retreat guest, or as a homestay guest.

Yoga Meditation & Retreats


Set on twelve acres, Sakura Sanctuary is nestled in amongst a planting of 100 Cherry Blossom Trees, in the beautiful, mystical rolling hills of Waikato, New Zealand.  The property was designed according to Vaastu principles - an ancient Indian science which aligns the physical, psychological and spiritual order of the built environment with cosmic energies.

As a retreat guest at Sakura Sanctuary you will be seen and supported by a team of loving souls. With a daily menu of yoga, meditation, nourishing food, space, and time, you’ll experience just how deeply you can rest and rediscover yourself. We understand how stressful life can be, how emotion can impact the body, and how food and exercise nourish and rebalance your whole being.


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 will also be taught how to listen to your body, love your body and move in ways that energise, heal and invigorate you. 

If you are experiencing sadness, we understand, and 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 Sanctuary 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.


At Sakura Sanctuary,
we know that the beauty of the outer world is simply a reflection of the beauty within you.

Sometimes you forget - we are here to remind you.
Whatever your reason for visiting, we look forward to meeting you, with open arms.
