Spring is a time of renewal, of shaking off the heaviness of Winter and embracing new heights of energy and freshness.
On this one day retreat you can experience a deep rejuvenation as you release layers and layers of tension. Out in the rolling hills of the Bilambil country side, just 15 minutes from Coolangatta, our hosts Maladhar dasi and Saratbihari das have artistically woven a beautiful retreat centre that equals anything you'd experience in the popular resorts of Bali or Thailand.
During the retreat you will experience many skills that can be easily implemented in your daily life to help to recreate the sublime peace you will be experiencing each moment of this day. We will be learning calming yoga breathing, a variety of meditations, a simple yoga class perfect for all levels and a relaxing head massage technique. The delicious vegetarian lunch always surprises those who are not used to plant-based meals at how tasty going vego can be (and we even give you a cooking demonstration to show you how easy it is). Come along and meet new friends or come as a group and share the experience.
Everyone finishes the day with a lightness of spirit and smiles on their faces as they float off back to their homes, a little regretful that such a wonderful day had to end.When your heart is warm and open, when you are feeling relaxed and serene all your friends and family, all the people you care about, in fact everyone around you, will benefit. So do them all a favour and give yourself the gift of a day with some like-minded people who know how to appreciate the finer things in life!

“I have been studying yoga philosophy, meditation, asana, yogic breathing and relaxation since the 1970's in my quest to deepen my understanding on a physical, mental and spiritual level, and I have grown to appreciate holistic yoga for all its wonderful benefits. My health and energy have improved over the years and my mind has calmed, I have learnt to listen to what my body is telling me, but best of all my appreciation for this wonderful journey of discovery of the real self has increased."
