Yoga & Longevity is a refined retreat experience where all aspects of natural health are addressed. Expect your body to become lean, strong, and flexible, as your mind becomes calm, clear, and present. You are simply required to show up, be present, and allow the experience to unveil your inherent potential.

The entire experience is included in the stated prices, no extra “hidden” charges.  Participants are supported by our team of professional staff who assure safety and enjoyment.  Our guests frequently report improved mood, sharper thinking, better sleep, lower blood pressure, improved direction in life, prolonged weight-loss, and even the lifting of depression.

Peters teachings draw from the wisdom of ancient Indian sages and techniques they developed for increasing life force and providing the means for a long and healthy life.  Through  simple and powerfully effective practices, yoga helps build and sustain the vitality which is key to a fruitful existence. Whether you are in your 20’s or your 80’s, this program will show you ways to support longevity and help maintain optimum movement and awareness throughout your life.

With daily massage, yoga & wellness classes, healthy food, spectacular adventures and a wonderful group of travelers, this retreat will pulse between drawing inward and expanding outward – between the safely contained space held at Aro Ha and the vast, powerful mountain ranges that frame this incredible dreamscape.






In early 2010, Chris Madison and Damian Chaparro discussed their shared interest in creating a transition space for those interested in nature, adventure, self-development, alternative health, and results-oriented fitness. Excited by their common views of the world, and the potential transformative impact of such a project, the concept of Aro Hā was born.

Located on the South Island of New Zealand, Aro Hā is just 40 minutes drive fromQueenstownArriving at Queenstown’s International Airport (ZQN) is breathtakingly easy.  A place where consecutive days are rarely alike, Queenstown is known as the adventure capital of the world.

Aro Hā was born of the intention to create a facility that exemplifies a more resilient localized living solution.  From Permaculture, to Passive Haus techniques, we’ve attempted to integrate best practices for solving the essentials of life.  Our 8.4-hectare site (about 21 acres) sits on a sub-alpine terrace with expansive views of Lake Wakatipu.  Here we’ve merged ancient traditions with modern technology.  So, while crops are stored in cellars, refrigerated by the ambient temperature of the earth, the site is monitored by a state-of-the-art building management system, allowing efficient conversion of sun and water to energy.

The vision is Zen inspired luxury, where the luxury comes from intelligent design, function of space, and exceptional programming, rather than opulence or excess.

Never before have all these elements been combined to provide such a rich guest experience. The facility is designed for group interaction.  Our ancestors shared spaces.  They moved together.  They ate together.  They played together, and so do we.

At Aro Ha our team lives on site.  They support your transformational experience as part of their own transformational experience.  We all evolve together.

All of this magic comes together seamlessly into a guest experience that is unparalleled.
