Our activities are designed to help you drop into a deeper connection with yourself and the surrounding bush, as well as your fellow retreat guests. Many guests come solo and leave with life long friends.
Our Fabulous Retreats always include Yoga, Pilates, Dance, Bushwalking, Canoeing, Guided Meditation, Art n Crafts, Music and more. All activities are optional. If you’d prefer to sit out an activity and read your book in the sun or have a nap, be our guest. This is your retreat, your time, your happiness. You do what nourishes your Fabulous self.
Past Arts n Crafts workshops include; working with clay, making Kokedamas (hanging plants), Permaculture, flower crowns, art therapy and more. We usually have two arts n crafts sessions per retreat, with workshops varying.
Our Yoga and Pilates is suitable for all levels and instructors work closely with students to ensure safe practice. Our Instructors have a wonderful way of creating deep body awareness through their practice; making sessions both invigorating and healing.
We have multiple bushwalks, appropriate for everyone; gentle flat ground for those who prefer a sturdy surface and adventurous mountain climbs for those seeking something a little more challenging. Supportive walking shoes are recommended.
Throughout the retreat there are many opportunities to sing, dance and chant. Saturday nights alternate between live music performances and dance sessions under the light of the moon.
Bellydance workshops are always tons of fun. Though it’s often of more interest to the ladies, we've have plenty of men give it a go too. We explore some of the core movements of Bellydance in a fun and light hearted manner. We explore a little bit of history, a whole lot of mystery, and laugh a lot through the process.
We explore meditation in multiple forms throughout the weekend. Morning Mountain Mediation with herbal tea, is at sun rise, thirty minutes prior to Yoga. Guests are encouraged to breathe, sip their tea, contemplate the view and just BE. Some guests sit on the balcony overlooking the magic mountains, and some take their tea for a little walk through the gardens.
Gliding silently down Wheeny Creek, with the sounds of the birds is a soul soothing experience. The creek is also our amazing swimming spot so make sure you pack your swimmers.
Enjoying time by the fire is a favourite past time. The smell of the eucalypt bark in the fresh mountain air really is special. The opening and closing ceremonies, and meals by the fire evoke a sense of unity with the land. *Please note we need to adhere strictly to fire bans and weather conditions. If having the big outdoor fire is not an option, having the indoor fires going is still magic.
All activities are optional. If you’d prefer to sit out an activity and read your book in the sun or have a nap, be our guest. This is your retreat, your time, your happiness. You do what nourishes your Fabulous self.
