Healthy Exercise
Sunshine Chi Machine

 We all wish for a healthy and pain-free life!  

The Sunshine Chi Machine can assist, with its gentle wave-like motion. The body and mind are eased into alignment, relaxation, and recharge. An opportunity to reinstate equilibrium and balance.

Working on our physical structure, the fish-tail movement of the chi machine sends a balanced wave of energy from your feet to your head. The health benefits are vast and include: improved circulation, oxygenation and detoxification plus lymph drainage, spinal alignment and mental focus. It is a wonderful destresser and releases mental, muscular and emotional tension.
There are many layers to health and the Zen Chi Machine has the capability of recharging energy, providing the cells with oxygen and balance. This in turn uplifts us physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.

Monica from Sydney says the Sunshine Chi Machine she sent to her friend in Ireland has been a game-changer. After a blood test her friend can’t believe her cholesterol, blood pressure and sugar levels are so much better after daily use of the machine for the last 3 months.

Deb of Sunshine Yoga has been personally using the Chi Machine for over 20 years to help with sleep, increase energy and for relieving back and neck pain

New Zealand is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful countries in the world.

The South Island is stunning to say the least. With high snow-capped mountain ranges, amazing landscape like no other, very little traffic, extremely friendly and kind people, along with culture, adventure, wonderful food (and yes, world-class wine!), and a very laid back and relaxed atmosphere.

Two main locations – hot springs on the West Coast with Lake Wanaka being our base for most of the holiday. This opens us up to an endless array of adventures.

Little surprises always pop up, making your holiday interesting, intriguing and very memorable. The itinerary really is just a guide because flexibility and room for change is the name of Sunshine Yoga Holidays.

    The Zen Chi Machine is a game changer! Most of my leg atrophy has gone! It's incredible. My physio is very surprised, however, I wasn't. I have more energy and blood flow and for walking more muscle mass.

    How can I ever begin to thank you Lyn for the special journey you led us on at Lord Howe Island. It is a magical place – so much energy and beauty! I so cherish our walks and talks. It is one of the most magical and surreal places I have been to.
