The Yoga

In the mornings explore the energetically balanced fluidity of Hatha Flow Yoga and in the warm afternoons enjoy a slower, deeply inward turning yoga experience. You will learn simple, yet effective tools to calm the mind and lead a healthier lifestyle through asana, pranayam and meditation. Giving you one to one attention and helping you develop a home practice are important aspects of the retreat. If tide and weather permits we will do one or two of our yoga sessions on a private stretch of beach.

The Accommodation

We will be staying at a lovely ‘West Coast’  home with cottages located right across the road from an unmarked  beach access at Chesterman Beach. This perfect
facility, with its quaint garden, has a  yoga studio located on the property.


The Beach

Beautiful Chesterman Beach is miles long. At low tide search tide pools or walk out to Frank Island. This is a favourite surfing beach.
