Have you been wanting to explore the practices of yoga deeper yet not looking to do a training?
Are you seeking the time and space to rest, digest whilst gaining valuable spiritual & self healing tools & information?

Are you looking to peacefully heal and nourish parts of yourself that aren’t in alignment ?
This retreat is for you.
Santosha, in Sanskrit is translated as ‘contentment’.
In yoga, Santosha along side Moksa (liberation) are 2 of the yogis highest values and goals to obtain in this human experience.
We tend to over complicate life and become lost and steer off track to things both physical and mental that are outside of ourselves, taking us away from the experience of Santosha, literal contentment.
The intention of this retreat is to deeply nourish the aspects of us and integrate deeply rooted contentment in our daily lives, no matter whats thrown our way.
Guiding you through this retreat, is a group of world renowned yoga teachers, musicians & TCM practitioners. Each with over 10 years experienced in there service and devoted to creating safe spaces for healing & transformation.

Share communal meals in the dining-lounge room with magnificent views to Mount Boogarem, gather in the Yoga Temple to receive teaching and guidance, participate in sacred ceremony on the land, commune with nature, enjoy healing and massage from one of our experienced therapists, share stories around the fire pit, swim in the freshwater dam, take in the scenery from one of the many decks.
Walk through the old growth rainforest to the Sacred Spring or wander around the grounds. Pay a visit to the grandfather camphor tree, gather for ceremony with 'elephant' fig, sit with the majestic cedar tree in the fairy glen. There are many hidden spots where you can take time
to be with yourself and immerse in silence.
