Relax Revive Restore Retreat


I hope you are healthy, happy and shining brightly!

 This is an update for you on what is happening in my yoga world over the next few months in 2015 in case you may be interested in joining me. I have changed some of the planned event dates & postponed some of the events.
Indian Yoga Tour – I have decided to postpone my Indian Yoga Tour  from Feb/March 2015 to Feb/March 2016 If you were planning on coming on ‘The Best Exotic Indian Yoga Retreat Experience’ I am sorry to disappoint you with this change. I have decided that with the Ebola epidemic so up in the air with still so little known about it,  that it is probably best not to go to such a highly populated country at the moment and also adding to that the unease of racial tension everywhere makes it all a bit scary. So I thought I would wait until the next year and hopefully things may have settled by then. Also for those of you who need more time to save and prepare you now have a full year to do so. You also now know approximately (it will differ a bit from the cost of 2015)  what it will cost and you have an itinerary. Deposits will need to be paid by October 2015.
Beef Week Country Women’s Retreat – 3pm Tuesday 5th May – 3pm Thursday 7th May – The Haven, Emu Park - This retreat is open to anybody who wishes to come, especially country women who may wish to have some special timeout for themselves whilst in town for Beef Week. There will be a shuttle bus running from Rockhampton to Emu Park and also an option for people to come for just the day on the Wednesday if they can’t manage to do the whole retreat, although I would highly recommend doing the whole retreat. The retreat will cover the health benefits of yoga in daily life & will offer some little tips on how to approach & include yoga in your daily life.
Other Plans for June 2015 – A blissful 7 day Yoga Retreat in Ubud, Bali staying at a most divine Retreat Centre where some of the movie EAT PRAY LOVE was filmed. Details are yet to be confirmed but just letting you know it is in the pipeline. For those of you who are disappointed about missing out on the Indian Trip you may be interested in this. Deposits will be needed early in 2015 if you wish to join this retreat.
Pumpkin Island 4 day Yoga Retreat September 2015 - apparently by September next year Pumpkin Island will be back to being Pumpkin Island and I have tentatively booked it as I am planning a 4 day Yoga Retreat to celebrate the wonderful rebirth of Spring. I will keep you updated on this throughout the year next year.
Montville, Byfield, The Haven Emu Park, Pumpkin Island & Private Retreats - 
Montville - I will be continuing with my monthly retreats at my home in Montville – included in these are my 4 special Retreats – Yoga & Art,  Yoga & Healthy Cooking, Journalling & Yoga, Ayuveda & Yoga. These retreats will have professional cooks, artists, writers etc along to give classes & talks.
Byfield Mountain Retreat,  The Haven Emu Park, Pumpkin Island - I will be having 4 retreats throughout the year on the Capricorn Coast – 2 at Byfield, and one each at The Haven & Pumpkin Island.
Private Retreats this is a wonderful option for a group of people wanting to do something healthy & different together - friends or work colleagues – you gather your group, choose your dates & your location/venue, then I come with the yoga & the nutritious food!
Well I’m sure I’ve given you plenty to think about. If you would like further details on any of the above please contact me.
Oceans of love,

So far 2014 has been a great yoga year for me with a steady flow of beautiful people coming to my weekly classes and to my monthly retreats here at Montville. The power of yoga never ceases to amaze me. Seeing how people grow and flourish within themselves and then open with warmth and grace to the world around them, like lotus flowers.

My Montville retreats have been popular and each time I see people come, settle in, relax and retreat, like little birds to a nest. Taking time out from their normal life activities, allows and creates space for them to simply be.

September brings Spring, a new season, new life. At present I am in Margaret River, WA, awaiting the birth of my grandchild, such an exciting and eventful time! For me a time to reflect on life and all its beauty. A reminder also, as we wait….as the baby is late….that the arrival of a baby can’t be planned, patience is required. We need to just go with the flow, the rhythm, and simply be in the moment.

In early September I have a retreat planned at breathtaking Byfield and later in the month, an Art and Yoga Retreat at Montville with renowned artist Sarah Larsen. Sarah will be teaching two art classes over the weekend. A wonderful way to let your creative juices flow!

Another great option I offer people wanting a yoga retreat, but are unable to make it to my venues, is my private country retreats. If you organise your own group at your choice of venue I will come to you. I will not only teach the yoga but I will also do all the cooking. My next country retreat in October will be in Longreach. I am so looking forward to going west again, to feel the great space of our outback.

In 2015 I am taking a Yoga Tour & Retreat to India for three weeks. We depart on the 25th February. The tour begins at the amazing International Yoga Festival in Rishikesh, followed with trips to Dharamshala, Agra, Rajasthan and Kerala. This trip will hopefully offer you an opportunity to experience the spiritual India and enjoy the benefits of yoga practice whilst travelling.

Also planned for 2015 is my Country Women’s Yoga Workshop and Retreat during Beef 2015 at Rockhampton. Women will have the option of participating in the daily workshops or joining the full retreat staying overnight. The retreat will be held at the Capricorn Coast and a bus will be available for transfers from Rockhampton to the coast. The workshops will be an opportunity for beginners to get started and for others familiar with yoga to enjoy yoga practice in a pleasant and invigorating environment.

If you are wanting to begin yoga why not get started by either joining a regular class with me at Montville or coming on a retreat, it is a beautiful way to a healthier you and it’s never too late to start. For further information on any of the above please don’t hesitate to contact me either by email or phone or refer to the schedules on this website.

Love and blessings,
