Jessica Devi brings you a warming Winter weekend at the stunning Warblers Retreat Centre, just 15 minutes North of Albany on Auckland’s North Shore. The award winning Warblers is nestled in bush surrounds amidst stunning landscaping, waterfalls, nature walks and bird song. It’s only a short drive but feels a million miles away. The creators and caretakers of Warblers, Barb and Dave, are a husband-and-wife team who have designed and landscaped the retreat to a breathtaking standard. They’re passionate about protecting their natural environment, they grow organic food on site, recycle waste into compost and have upcycled and used natural materials wherever they can.

This is a 3-way collaboration, not only will you be staying at one of the best kept secrets in the Auckland area, and be guided through your weekend by a passionate practitioner with over 25 years of experience in health and wellness, you’ll also be fed and watered by one of the most delicious plant based businesses around.

About Jessica –

In her 25+ years in the world of health and wellness Jessica has worn many hats; aerobic instructor, personal trainer, yoga teacher, movement therapist, retreat facilitator, course creator and yoga studio owner (to name a few!).
Jessica is committed to a body centered approach to physical and mental wellbeing and loves nothing more than to dive deeply into what makes for a meaningful life. Her approach is sensitive, caring and inclusive and her teaching is pitched to meet you as you are right now (no matter your age, size or level of experience) and support you to reach your health and wellbeing goals.
“I continue to be inspired by the endless possibility yoga and movement practice presents and have first hand experience in their healing power, both within my own body and mind and the bodies and minds of those I have had the privilege of working with. I truly believe we have the power to heal and transform ourselves; body, mind and spirit and to discover new and more sustainable ways in which to be in our world.”

Jessica is drawn to both traditional and modern yoga, dance and movement practices that are sustainable, authentic and therapeutic in nature. She draws from these to create stunning retreats in which the emphasis is on listening to your inner wisdom, nourishing your body and mind and creating long term, life-sustaining, change, growth and development.
