Peppers Salt Resort & Spa at Kingscliff in Northern New South Wales offers seasonal yoga retreats with YOGA TV host, Ryoho teacher and writer, Kris McIntyre.
The weekend yoga retreats, which are now in their third year, are attracting many repeat guests who return season after season. The summer retreat will focus on good digestion, beating sugar cravings and improving energy levels.
Designed for beginners through to experienced practitioners, each weekend varies to suit the changing needs of the seasons according to Ryoho (a form of yoga therapy combining traditional Indian Hatha poses with the meridian based healing arts of China and Japan).
My aim is to create a yoga escape that is approachable, both financially and in terms of accessibility of the program - something that sits between the existing offerings of intense, strict and often expensive health retreats and, at the other end of the scale, the more hippie, bunk-style intense yoga camps which aren’t for everyone.
The weekend yoga escape at Peppers Salt Resort & Spa isn’t a yoga ‘boot camp’ and we don’t have any ‘rules'. We instead provide a platform for attendees to get as much as they want out of the weekend.
When guests aren’t striking a pose, they can step out into nature and enjoy a network of beachside walking and bicycle tracks, unspoilt surf beaches, the resort’s large tropical beach lagoon pool, or head to The Golden Door Spa for a wide range of soul soothing spa treatments.
Peppers Salt Resort & Spa is located just 15 minutes from Gold Coast Airport, 60 minutes from Ballina Airport and less than 90 minutes drive from Brisbane.
Priced from $557* per person twin share, the all-inclusive escape includes two nights accommodation, five Ryoho yoga and meditation classes with Kris McIntyre, a yoga mat and a 50 minute spa treatment at The Golden Door Spa and all meals in Season, full use of resort leisure facilities and unlimited in-room movies.
Non-residential packages are available from $400* per person including all yoga classes, mat, The Golden Door Spa treatment, one lunch and two dinners.
