Non-Profit Yoga Retreat Repair Fund

$918 of $28,000 goal

Raised by 14 people in 39 months
Anahata Yoga Health and Education Trust (AYHET) has been around since 1996, enabling people from all over the world to experience the yogic lifestyle and develop life skills as well as promoting health and wellbeing. We are committed to providing experiential learning opportunities & accessible yoga education for all.

We are actively working towards preservation of the natural environment & sustainable development of the retreat infrastructure.

Over the years our main building Surya has been used to house our kitchen, library, office, and shared accommodation facilities. It has now deteriorated to a point where urgent repairs are needed in order to keep our building safe and up to a standard for people who come and stay with us. 


So far we have already replaced the roof as this was damaged during Cyclone Ita in April of this year, but other parts of the building are still in urgent need of repair and rebuilding. 

As you are well aware, building costs can add up up very quickly, we are having to repair Surya in three stages; the first being the most urgent - to replace and re-clad the accommodation side of the building. This first stage will cost $10,000. The second stage will be to re-clad and repair the front of Surya building as well as replacing the windows - this has been estimated at a further $10,000, and finally stage three is to re-clad the kitchen and replace the windows there, at a cost of $8,000 - giving us our total of $28,000 to restore Surya to its original state of sound and structural integrity.
Thank you for your contribution to help us to continue to provide a space of health and wellbeing for you all.

We would like to deeply thank all those who have already donated to our building fund. All the donations have allowed us to move towards our goal to complete the urgent repairs on Surya, our main building and keep Anahata Retreat buildings safe for all our guests and residents.

A big thank you goes to our volunteer builders who have dedicated their time and long hours to do the much needed repair work. We are proud to say that we have completed Stage 1 of the repairs. The windows on the south side have been replaced with double glazed windows and the siding re-claded . We have had rave reviews from guests and residents who have noticed the difference in the warmth within the guest rooms and absence of drafts.

We are now working towards manifesting some more funds in order to begin Stage 2. The second stage will be to re-clad and repair the front of Surya building as well as replacing the windows and front door. This is a BIG job and we hope to entice our wonderful volunteer builders back to help us achieve this.

All donations are gratefully received… small or large. Your support allows us to continue to uphold Anahata, so people from all walks of life have the opportunity to transform in this special yogic environment.

Thank you for your support that allows us to continue to create and sustain a space that inspires the lives of many.

Hi Everyone,

Firstly, we'd like to offer a HUGE thank you to our volunteer builders who have dedicated their time to begin the much needed repair work on our main building.

We'd also like to thank all those who have already donated to our building fund. We still desperately need funds to pay for materials to continue the repairs in Stage 2 before winter is upon us.

Update on our Repair Work:
Stage 1...to replace and re-clad the accommodation side of the building has been completed. The windows that were literally falling out and leaking have now been replaced with new double glazed windows. With new windows and cladding our guests are already noticing the difference in the warmth of the building and the elimination of drafts.

As soon as we have the financing we will begin Stage 2. The second stage will be to re-clad and repair the front of Surya building as well as replacing the windows.

Again Anahata Retreat thanks everyone who has already donated their time and helped finance our repairs.

Update on Repair Work:
We have two amazing builders at Anahata ready to generously volunteer their services during February to help Anahata with the urgent repairs to our main building where the kitchen, dining room, library and accommodation is housed and we need your help to raise funds to purchase the materials.

All donations are gratefully received… small or large. Your support allows us to continue to uphold Anahata, so people from all walks of life have the opportunity to transform in this special yogic environment.

Thank you for your support that allows us to continue to create and sustain a space that inspires the lives of many.
