During the retreats the aim is to bring harmony to daily life and encourage awareness of habitual patterns. I like to encourage participants to look at life from a curious point of view and to embrace the moment.
Here at yoga and health retreats Brisbane the key word is flexibility, thats why every retreat can be different depending on the size of the group, the groups wants and needs, its a journey we travel together:)
Every evening after dinner we will offer a movie for those who are interested. The movies, mainly documentaries, have been consciously chosen to challenge our perceptions and to soothe the spirit.
The retreats are always six days, unless otherwise indicated. You are welcome to arrive anytime after 2pm on the start date and check out is after breakfast on the last day of the retreat. If you have any special need or requirement dont hesitate to ask, flexibility and change is a part of the journey!
We prefer to not divide yoga into different categories, styles or names. Yoga, in its true meaning, allows us to balance the two energies that reside in the body, breath, mind and soul – yin and yang, sun and moon, Shiva and Shakti or whatever we prefer to call them.
Yoga and meditation Brisbane is not just something we do on the mat, it’s something we practice every living moment. Through our practice we enable ourselves to become aware of our deepest nature.
During the retreat we try to practice outdoors as much as the weather allows us, surrounded by beautiful nature. The asanas (poses) that we practice here at Melbourne yoga studios are developed to suit the beginner as well as the more experienced practitioner. The morning class is energetic and we emphasise on building strength, while the afternoon session is more relaxing and soothing. The classes are very holistic, profound and clear!
We believe that what we eat are of profound importance, both for ourselves and others. Its a big commitment on our yogic path to chose food that are less harmful for our bodies as well as the planet and all beings. Whether you are a vegetarian or not, during your week here you will be offered nutritious vegetarian (vegan) food that has been prepared with care and love. We try to eat as much according to season and organic when possibly!
Through the practices of yoga, we discover that concern for the happiness and well being of others, including animals, must be an essential part of our own quest for happiness and well being. The fork can be a powerful weapon of mass destruction or a tool to create peace on Earth.
