Please see the events page for future workshops and retreats in 2023.

This Autumn we are heading to Yanada in St Albans, near Wiseman’s Ferry which is around a 90 minute drive out of Sydney. This is a mid week retreat, so a perfect, quieter time to step out of your actual routine!

The retreat is an opportunity to stretch our bodies and brains, be in nature, get fed well, hang out with other yogis and be nourished.

Time spent in another stream of consciousness, which is accessed through yoga asana, pranayama and meditation. This is memorable, not only in your heart but in your body, and lasts a lifetime. Life affirming, even life changing, it will definitely touch deeper into your being even if you’re not aware of it at the time. 

On retreats we get time, space and conducive surroundings to hold us as we launch into this other way of being.

Yoga days

Yanada has a settled Yoga space looking out to bush lands. 

We start on Tuesday afternoon for an ‘arrival’ asana class, then get together after for dinner. Wednesday & Thursday start with an early morning sitting meditation then a two hour asana class.

In the afternoon on Wednesday there is another asana class. Thursday AM is the same as Wednesday except we will leave after brunch and the final wrap class around 1.30 pm.

The retreat welcomes everyone with some yoga experience, and a desire to work and explore. Modifications are made for any injuries and or physical limitations.
