What is it about Yoga Holidays? 

Our yoga, health and adventure holidays are about getting away from your job, responsibilities and these days, social media! Sunshine Yoga Holidays create personally prepared programs and unique itinerary, mostly out of towns and cities. 

Are you in need of an adventure?  Do you want to experience new cultures, new landscapes, new challenges? Do you want off-the-beaten-track adventures, allowing nature to embrace your very core?  Is the draw card architecture, history and culture?

Amidst all of the above, we add yoga, meditation, energisation and qigong, It is this that makes an ordinary holiday in to an extraordinary holiday.

Sunshine Yoga has been offering these style of holidays for over two decades, taking clients all over the world. They are unique, with just small groups of like-minded souls, making these holidays extremely memorable and special!

“Nepal was an AMAZING adventure Lyn. I could have continued trekking for another 6 days! My resting pulse went from the 80’s to 64. Very regenerating. Look forward to seeing your amazing photos.”  Liz.

Thank you Lyn for an amazing ‘first retreat’ to Stradbroke Island. It was perfectly timed giving me much needed time out for myself. I returned home feeling relaxed, rested, rejuvenated and ready to take on life again. Amelia.


Lord Howe Island

To Be Advised

Fitness Level: medium

Islands are special places that capture our imagination in some fascinating way. Perhaps it is the mystical feeling of isolation, untouchable, quiet, that we connect with and discover a part of ourselves, difficult to find on the ‘mainland’.

Lord Howe is world heritage listed and offers the perfect setting for escape, with its:   untouched beauty; rare species of birds and fish; flora and fauna; white sand beaches; sheltered lagoon; crystal clear turquoise water; hideaway coves, mountains; wonderful walking tracks and mountains to climb; snorkelling and kayaking.

There are wonderful restaurants, cafes and grocery stores on the island

15 nights/16 days

Tuscany Rovello Arrone

To Be Advised 

Fitness Level: medium

Tuscany, Ravello and Positano are on the stunning Amalfi Coast. This coastline is amazing and hugs the coastline in Southern Italy for miles. It is indeed one of Italy’s most memorable destinations with an outstanding Mediterranean landscape.

The mountains plunge down into the sea and homes hang on to the side of the cliffs. There is amazing architecture, history, stunning views of turquoise seas.

There are great restaurants and hiking trails. Our tours to Capri, Sorrento, Ravello and the wonderful hike on the Path of the Gods with its stunning views, cliff faces, caves, ancient convent, vineyards and gardens, make for the most memorable holiday

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, 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 game!

Lyn’s history of yoga and health goes back to the 1960’s when I was a child in New Zealand. I took to it like a duck to water and have never ceased to be involved. I was teaching yoga long before I became ‘qualified’, as was my mother, Marion,  who was also a yoga teacher.
