Our “Yoga in Nature Retreat” is focused on mindful movement, breath awareness, relaxation, connecting with nature and most of all, having fun!  
 

Our accommodation is just out of Dwellingup, on a large property set in natural bushland, backing onto the forest.  We stay in a mix of Chalets, or rooms within The Lodge and are utilising the lovely long veranda, overlooking a tranquil lake as our ‘Yoga Space’.  The peaceful setting of this property, daily yoga/meditation, bush walks, amazing food, wine & company are sure to provide you with an opportunity to unwind, relax and reflect.
 

You have time each day for fun and to connect with like-minded women, as well as plenty of time for rest and quiet reflection.  The aim of the retreat is to encourage you to practice mindfulness through movement, enjoy time away from habitual routines & the demands of daily life, bring laughter and adventure into your life…. and ensure you go home feeling refreshed & relaxed, with a big SMILE on your face.

Is the “Yoga in Nature” Retreat Suitable for me?

We have purposely developed this particular retreat program to fit the ‘Adventurous Women’ style of doing things.  It’s a little different, in that we don’t stick to a particular philosophy or practice, our food is not vegan (happy to cater for vegetarians though) and complete silence is not our strength.  We appreciate that there are plenty of excellent companies who already provide this end of the spectrum when it comes to Yoga Retreats and we’d be more than happy to recommend them, if our style doesn’t suit your needs.  
 

Beginners Welcome, You don’t need to be flexible or fit … all bodies can do yoga!
 

Alcohol is not provided, however you are more than welcome to bring your own if you enjoy a tipple.
 

We provide lovingly prepared homemade meals and they are amazing!  There may even be a little naughty twist at times, however  you do have a choice as to whether or not you wish to indulge.
 

Self Drive - We will provide directions to the property
 

You need to have a “Go with The Flow Attitude”
