VIRTUAL RETREATS

In view of the current situation worldwide, and the closing of all non essential businesses in New Zealand, I have decided to offer Virtual Retreats and live streaming of the regular yoga classes.
 
Join me for a 5-day virtual retreat with all sessions on line. Limited numbers will mean individual attention. You will enjoy the benefits of exercise, stress management, social connection and personal coaching through daily yoga, daily mediation, and a menu plan for the week of easy to prepare healthy food, including the shopping list so you can order your groceries on line ahead of time. Your retreat will include one Yoga Philosophy workshop, a personal medicine card reading and one personal session with me on line, to discuss your health concerns, take your physical practice deeper, or enjoy a personal meditation and distance reiki treatment. You will be able to book additional sessions for additional cost.
Suggested koha for this retreat is $199

SMEAEP TAX DEDUCTIBLE RETREATS

Under an initiative with Exercise Association of NZ and IRD called SMEAEP, exercise programs are tax deductible and not subject to FBT as long as they are legitimately being used by an employer as a tool to help manage workplace stress. Jo Woollacott is an endorsed provider of SMEAEP programs, and can offer a variety of packages that are fully tax deductible. These can include personal training sessions, yoga and pilates classes, workshops and retreats. Participants in the SMEAEP retreats who qualify for tax deductions may also be able to claim accommodation at WHY and travel to the retreat as a business expense.
