When you are inspired…dormant forces, faculties, and talents become alive, and you discover yourself to be a greater person by far than you ever dreamed yourself to be. — Patanjali

Ideal for…

The Hatha yoga classes, deep relaxation sessions and meditation instruction are experiential and uncomplicated.

These methods are ideal for beginners as well as those who wish to ‘deepen’ their already established yoga practice.

People of all ages, body types, walks of life, professions and dispositions are welcome.

If you seek to maintain good health; incorporate relaxation for wellbeing; or restore equilibrium, then these weekends away are ideal for you!

It is a weekend retreat vacation and not an ashram.  The cuisine will be vegetarian and non-vegetarian and wine will be served.  (And yes, there will be chocolate!).

The Domino Trail

Original rails and sleepers form the walking trail for the first 500 meters, so you need to make sure where you put your feet. After crossing Falls road the trail enters bushland made up of Eucalypt species including manna gum, peppermint and mountain gums.The trail uses the Powerful Owl as it’s symbol on all the track markers. The Powerful Owl lives in tree hollows and is listed as an endangered species. The bushland which the trail leads, has been protected to preserve the habitat of this largest of Australian owl species.The bushland is also home to swamp wallabies, grey kangaroos and short-beak echidnas.
