My Story


Let me tell you a little bit about myself. I love to travel and have created my businesses around this. Gecko Gearz is my store in Kaikoura, New Zealand. I have been travelling to Bali, Thailand and Nepal to buy goodies to sell in my shop and support local families for 25 years. These Wellness Retreats have come about due to my own personal health journey. A few years ago I recovered after suffering through 5 years of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, despite being told by my doctors I would never recover. I often reflect on this time and wish I knew then what I now know about my body and mind and the ways I could have overcome the challenges CFS often creates in our lives. Whilst we explore Egypt, I also will take you on a journey where you can discover some easy practices that you can add into your daily routines. Our yoga will be gentle and easy, perfect for beginners and I will be incorporating breathing to calm the nervous system. I will guide you through many tips and ways to help reduce stress and anxiety, sleep better, gain more flexibility in your body and just have that overall sense of calmness. I can not imagine a better way to do that, then while exploring the beautiful country and people of Egypt. Return home feeling relaxed, refreshed and empowered.

"I have taken a long time to write this testimony for Penny because I'm not actually sure how to put into words what I want to say. Penny is amazing at what she does, very intuitive and works with the body in beautiful ways that are suited for you. She also has a great worldly knowledge on so many things and just knows what to say at the perfect time. She is a kind, caring person and I would definitely recommend her to anyone."

"My partner and I recently attended a discovery yoga session with Penny and we came away so happy to have gone along. My partner was very nervous being his first time at yoga and he found Penny to be very patient and made him feel comfortable and relaxed. You can tell Penny has a wealth of knowledge on the subject and went through everything with ease. Can’t wait to continue on the journey with her."

Yoga / Breathing Techniques


"I had my first one on one yoga class with Penny yesterday, it was fantastic! I have done previous yoga classes but have always struggled with my technique.Penny gave me helpful cues right through our session and made sure I was in the correct position plus lots of tips and helpful information to make sure I keep progressing with my training. The session flowed well, was in a relaxing environment and I left feeling relaxed but energized. I would definitely recommend her classes to anyone looking to improve in technique and truly feel the benefits yoga brings to the body and mind.Looking forward to my next class with her."


I'm always looking for new and exciting opportunities. Let's connect.
