Our Snowy Mountain Yoga and Wellness Retreat is the ideal way to reset your healthy habits and nurture your own holy trinity of wellness -  the body, mind and spirit.

Since it is the cooler season - the two daily yoga classes are practised in front of our warm inviting fireplace

 

Our all-inclusive 8 day/7 night retreat located in Jindabyne is the perfect gift to yourself, providing you with some well deserved space to bring your awareness back on to yourself so that you can focus on what you need to heal, release or nurture in order to align your mind-body connection and bring about vibrant overall health and well-being.  

Staying in the alpine town of Jindabyne at The Jindy Inn, the region is both healing and beautiful,  cradled in one of the most scenic, soulful and inspiring corners of NSW - The Snowy Mountains. 

Our Yoga + Wellness Mountain Retreat includes two daily yoga classes by the warmth of our fireplace [during cooler months],  meditation,  wellness practices and healing workshops, all led by your yoga teacher and host Claire Charters

This retreat is specially designed for all levels and experience - and beginners are welcome. All activities, yoga, meals and accommodation are included with 2-3 hours of down time each afternoon which can be used to read, relax, have a massage or explore. 

Our Snowy Mountains Yoga and Wellness Retreat truly is the holy trinity of complete wellness gifting you with healing, energy, positivity and self-empowerment. Over the course of the retreat:

    • You will nurture your body with yoga and healing plant-based meals
    • You will strengthen your mind with mindfulness and self-empowerment exercises
    • You will re-connect with your spirit and your own true nature with journalling, creative workshops, forest bathing and meditation.

    • Unlock your own inner wisdom and understanding.

Sign up and give yourself the opportunity to be supported by like-minded people while you find the time and space to reset your compass. Discover your own truth, intuition and wisdom while gaining clarity on what to leave behind and how to move forward.

At every yoga and wellness retreat everything is taken care for you. All you need to do is show up and allow yourself to fully immerse in the experience so that you can  re-emerge feeling inspired and empowered to create new possibilities for your life going forward.7 Night Snowy Mountain Yoga + Wellness Retreat: 24th May 2020

Our yoga and wellness retreats are designed for anyone who is seeking more space, self-reflection, self-empowerment, inspiration, inner peace whilst reintroducing healthy habits . The energy of our retreats are always gentle and supportive.

The yoga classes are focused on the entire yoga philosophy as opposed to "striking the perfect pose".

      “When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all your thoughts break their bonds: Your mind transcends limitations, your consciousness expands in every direction, and you find yourself in a new, great and wonderful world.

      Dormant forces, faculties and talents become alive, and you discover yourself to be a greater person by far than you ever dreamed yourself to be.”
