"Step into Spring" Weekend Yoga Retreat
October 30th-November 1st 2015

Join Ondine Savage for a blissful weekend yoga retreat to mark the start of spring!

The weekend retreat will be held at the Yanada Retreat Centre in St. Albans. This fully equipped yoga retreat centre on the Hawkesbury River is surrounded by beautiful bush land so you can escape the bustle of the city and enjoy some real silence, and it´s just a short 90 minute drive from Sydney.

Over the weekend we will explore the strength of Hatha Yoga and the power of a Dynamic Yoga practice, Meditation classes, workshops as well as a Restorative yoga class and Yoga Nidra class to help you relax soon after arriving. The retreat is fully catered and all meals will be vegetarian. 

Classes will be suitable for all levels from complete beginners to the more advanced yogi.

In your spare time there are many things to do (or not do if you choose!) including:

• Swimming in the pool
• Exploring the adjoining Yengo National Park by foot where you will discover many Aboriginal sacred sites and rock engravings
• Walk or drive into the historic St. Albans village
• Relaxing on the veranda or meditating under a tree
