The Ashram is close to art and culture, restaurants, cafes and 10 minutes walk to the city centre. It is safe for solo women travellers and those interested in an ashram experience. At this stage accommodation is being offered to solo women only. Here you get to stay in a quiet, comfortable environment where a lead yoga practice in the morning is an option.
This is an Ashram that has yoga and meditation classes and study groups that guests are welcome to join. Guest have a private bedroom.
Guests have access to the whole house but limited access to the kitchen.
The host/co-host will be available in the mornings for yoga sessions by arrangement and will provide breakfast. Evening meals not provided.
- Solo women only accommodated. No smoking, meat or alcohol permitted, a basic understanding of ashram etiquette. This can be further explained on arrival but it is simply showing respect to the place and people. Accommodation at this ashram includes the option of a yoga and/or meditation session.
I have lived 25 years in Nelson and worked in the arts for 16 of those years. Since 2012 I have worked as a volunteer in the Pacific both in Solomon Islands and Bougainville, Papua New Guinea. My house is full of Nelson art and craft and some works from the Pacific. I have an eclectic mix of music and books. I'm a keen tramper, gardener and movie goer (arthouse and the like). I care about sustainability, humanity and equality, kindness and generosity. I also practise yoga and meditation. I am managing the "Ashram Experience" listing on behalf of the Swamini. I look forward to hosting you in my home.
