Blue Mountains Yoga & Meditation Retreat

Friday 30th October – Sunday 1st November

RETURN TO BALANCE & RE-INSPIRE

Spring RETREAT

Join Kelly Ryan and guest teacher, Shell Whitbread on retreat in the Blue Mountains this coming Spring Equinox.

Come away with us as we ground ourselves in the cosiest of clifftop retreats in the stunning bush lands of the Blue Mountains. A little while ago we were practicing with the theme of coming to rest in your peace before acting on your next calling. That is exactly what we are inviting you to do on this very special and intimate weekend getaway.

Our retreats are a beautiful blend of  time spent in stunning natural surrounds, bush walks, yoga & meditation philosophy & practice, time to relax, rest, read, explore or just do whatever the hell you like! We believe as a culture we have lost the art of giving ourself time to just be, to slow down and replenish – and that is what we hope to offer you on retreat.

Wether you are an experienced yogi or fresh on the mat, we will ensure you receive all the support you need to truly relax and take what you need from this weekend.

 

Slow down, clear, & ClARIFY

CLEANSE & REJUVINATe

This weekend has been carefully designed to help you get away from the busyness of life, throw away your to-do list and cultivate a sense of peaceful homecoming that fills you from the inside out.

This retreat is a time for you to slow down, catch your breath, balance your nervous system and welcome a renewed sense of inspiration and joy for your life. You will be provided the practices and the space to reconnect with yourself and nourish yourself from the inside out.
