A ReTreat for your Soul
November 2021 Yin, Yoga & Reiki Retreat
Mount Victoria, November 19th-21st
Dive gently into a meaningful, healing yoga & reiki immersion
Yoga, Reiki, Meditation. Boutique, friendly eco retreat.
I am so excited to take you on this gentle healing immersion experience. This retreat is the culmination of all the things I love (yoga, spirituality, nature, energy healing, food as medicine) and it truly lights me up bringing it to life and sharing it with you to bring you joy, expansion and nourishment. This retreat is about YOU! I carefully created a program that will leave you well nurtured and taken care of physically, emotionally and spiritually.
THE RETREAT EXPERIENCE
THE DAILY FLOW
This retreat is carefully curated for you to slow down and de-stress. We will be welcoming gently the summer months, giving ourselves the opportunity to let go of stress that has accumulated throughout the year. Through the healing blend of yoga, meditation, reiki and nature you will reconnect to Self and regain clarity & focus. Each day will consist of meditation, slow, breath guided yoga practices, evening yin & reiki immersions. We will align with the cycle of nature in our daily flow with sunrise and sunset rituals and honouring’s. There will be guidance for journaling, questions of enquiry and nature walks around the stunning base of the mountains surrounding us. There will be time to rest, digest, to enjoy a bath in the natural rainwater spa nestled within the woodland forest, and to read or just be with the most spectacular mountain views on many decks or secret hideaways for quiet contemplation. I will share throughout the weekend my most favourite healing, cleansing and daily rituals with you and gently guide you through these practices and techniques of morning and evening rituals. I will offer a workshop on the Saturday afternoon on the energy body, which will allow you to connect to your subtle body, to feel your energy body and to understand more about energy hygiene and energetic boundaries. The evenings (Friday and Saturday) are focussed on lunar arts (yin, reiki and yoga nidra).
THINK BOUTIQUE ECO RETREAT
The boutique eco retreat venue is positioned on 100 of acres of secluded natural land, with spectacular views of majestic mountains (Blue Mountains; Mount Victoria, 2 hours drive from Sydney). The boutique retreat space is a tasteful designed living, breathing home of straw, cob, recycled timbers and earthen renders held within extensive landscaped gardens making it easy to access natures remedies. The retreat space uses its own solar system and rain water system. This eco sanctuary experience was VERY important for me when carefully choosing the venue. I strongly believe in creating holistic experiences for mind body soul, and Vanam retreat centre really ticked all the boxes. This retreat space really provides an all-natural remedy to modern life. All rooms have their own ensuite and are in comfortable twin, three or quad share, uniquely and tasteful designed. There are three suites in the main house, each with private ensuite and 2 beautifully repurposed shipping containers with private ensuite.
Jeff and Andrew, our lovely hosts, will be providing three nourishing and satiating meals per day. Food is one of the main things we all look forward on retreat and therefore the menu is carefully handcrafted to provide the most wholesome foods complementing your retreat experience and yoga practice. The retreat owners take great pleasure in preparing thoughtful, delicious and nutritious meals using fresh seasonal produce from their own garden and orchard. And eggs from happy free-range chooks that are roaming around in the gardens! The food is made with lots of care, organic ingredients and any dietary needs will be met including gluten-free, dairy-free and vegetarian/vegan.
VALLEY VIEWS FROM SUNRISE TO SUNSET
The rooms are tasteful designed and you’ll feel that the owners have put a lot of love into the creation. You have access to stunning valley views from your private bay window and generous decks offering peaceful views into the gardens. There are three rooms in the main house (3x single; 4x single; 3x single) and two beautiful repurposed shipping containers with private ensuite also (1 queen; 2x single). All rooms have their private ensuite.
The share community area is beautifully decorated and has spectacular views overlooking the mountains and valley. Lots of natural material, wood, colours and balinese features, plants, a stunning sunny large deck and a cosy fire place inviting to relax with a cup of tea and a book or to simply sit and ponder. It does actually feel a bit like Yogatime:).

YOGA, REIKI, MEDITATION
