Friday 7th – Sunday 9th February 2020
Mahalo House, Bangalow, Australia

The Details

I am so delighted to be co-hosting an Australian wellness retreat in February 2020 with a wonderful yoga teacher Phoebe Collins,
at Mahalo House + Studio in Bangalow, 15 minutes in land from Byron Bay.

Phoebe and I love working with people who want to feel at their best and explore how that can impact all areas of their lives.
We have our own unique skills but share a real passion for yoga, particularly Yin, which creates spaces for reflection and deep tissue release.

Entitled ‘Roots & Wings’, this intimate weekend will be spent exploring the balancing energies of earth and sky – establishing a sense of how we can feel both grounded and yet liberated at the same time.

Through yoga, breathwork, meditation, self reflection, beach walks and chef-prepared food we will nurture our bodies, listen to our hearts
and reconnect with our spirit.

You will leave with far deeper self-awareness and harmony between your inner and outer worlds.
Most importantly you will gain practical tools to help rebalance your mind, body and spirit whenever you may need moving forwards.

Our group is deliberately small (maximum of 16 women) to allow for greater connection and individual attention.

We hope to have you join us!
