• Mission Beach

  • Six days/seven nights at beautiful Sanctuary Eco Retreat.

    Had enough of looking at the same four walls? Not looking forward to a soggy, dreary winter? Join us for a week-long getaway at the Sanctuary Eco-Retreat Centre at Mission Beach. Beach on one side, rainforest on the other. In fact, Mission Beach is one of the places the rainforest comes down to the beach and the Sanctuary Retreat Centre is on the shore, snuggled into the forest itself with gorgeous little huts that find a nice balance between letting nature in and keeping it out!
    Sarasvati and Danni will lead a week-long retreat in this idyllic natural setting, providing a practice that is soothing and invigorating. Practice at your own pace in the morning with a general Hatha practice, and finish the day with a more gently-paced practice to slow down and renew your energy. The week is interspersed with some yoga workshops, some meditation practice, and plenty of time left over to walk the beach, the forest, or spend some time quietly chatting with other like-minded people. Bring a book to enjoy some quiet time too. Leave the computers, the cars, the trains, the workplace, and the stresses of life behind for a week and return to the simple freedom of yoga, nature, food, and friends.
