Escape the hustle

Welcome to Maraetai Yoga Studio.  Our boutique studio is nestled in the bush offering you the opportunity to switch off, unwind and reconnect while practicing yoga under the guidance of a certified Iyengar Yoga instructor.


Your community by the sea

Maraetai means “meeting place by the sea”- fitting for people who are looking for a meeting place to practice yoga, making time for yourself to reconnect with your breath and body.  At Maraetai Yoga Studio we practice Iyengar Yoga which focusses on detail, precision and alignment in the performance of yoga poses and breath control.  The style often makes use of props, such as belts, blocks and blankets which enable students to perform the asanas (poses) correctly, minimizing the risk of injury or strain.  Come, join us and leave feeling the best version of you.
