Wait what are the dates again?
Arrival Day is Sunday 1 November and we have 5 days of teaching lined up for you starting Monday 2nd thru Friday 6th of November 2020.
How do I get there?
Our venue is a 45-60 minute drive from Queenstown Airport to Kinloch. There will be one airport pick up on arrival day (Sunday 1 November) and one airport drop off on departure day (Saturday 7 November) included (if you arrive at an odd time we can arrange pickup at an extra charge).
What should I pack?
Dress code is casual business, bring with you comfortable clothes for a casual setting with peers from diverse organisational backgrounds. You'll also need clothing for gentle stretching in the morning and outdoor hiking-type activities. Please do ensure you bring warm clothes as temperatures can drop unexpectedly in an alpine climate, or alternatively swimmers for the hot tub also work (but it's a cold streak down the hill back to the room). Please pack at least one pair of closed-toe walking shoes.
What's the climate like?
During November, in spring, you can expect temperatures to range between 8-22C (46-72F) as the area eases into long summer evenings. An alpine climate, weather can be changeable and it is always best to be prepared for the sometimes sudden drops in temperature. Snow is rare on the ground in the township even in winter when the ski fields are at their peak. You can read more about Queenstown's climate and seasons here.
Do I need a travel visa?
Please check visa requirements for your stay through New Zealand Immigration here. If you have any questions we would be happy to assist.
How fit do I need to be?
We cater for all bodies and all levels of mobility. We fundamentally believe these techniques should be available to all and we are happy to work with you to ensure everyone has a chance to participate in a meaningful way. If you have any questions please reach out.
We build our programs assuming that you are able to work through a one hour beginner's yoga class, could walk comfortably for a 2-3 hour gentle trail hike, or perhaps an hour swimming in the lake is more your style. We also cater for ultrarunners and handstand yogis, wheelchair access and differing learning habits.
How do I convince the boss?
If you're seeking funding, or the time off work to participate, our employer support kit helps you to structure a conversation with your boss and peers about what you're up to and what the benefits will be.
