Retreat away from the demands of busy life, and give yourself the time and space for a long weekend of movement practices, meditations, and healthy meals that are weaved together to nourish the body, heart and mind.

The aim of the retreat is such that one can reenter the world recharged, refreshed and renewed, ready to face the challenges of the world from a relaxed, grounded, and mindful basis.

Nestled amongst the fruit orchard, in the natural beauty of Dwellingup this retreat will be offered by Jude and Rob Milan.  We are once again fortunate to also have Jo Farina, qualified food coach, cooking delicious, nutritious meals.

Rejuvenate Mind

Practice slowing down, unplugging and training in attentional skills to give the mind space to relax, focus and rest in its own peaceful nature.

Rejuvenate Heart

Learn and practice meditations that open the heart, and counter the distortions in our relationships to ourselves, and deepen our relationships to others.

Rejuvenate Body

The body responds well to the mindful, whole body integrated movement of yoga practice. Each practice will aim to assist the body in releasing tension and building strength. Delicious healthy meals will be prepared for you.

Hatha Yoga

Our morning asana, pranayama and meditation yoga practice will aim to refresh and rejuvenate the body and mind with an energetic, mindful approach.

Yin Yoga and Yoga Nidra

The afternoon session will be a restful and relaxing yin yoga practice followed by yoga nidra or similar relaxation.

Meditation

Meditation is a way to slow down, develop attentional skills and ultimately become familiar with our own minds.

Our schedule will include morning hatha yoga and meditation, afternoon yin and relaxation, and evening meditations.   During the day you are free to relax, read a book, or go for a walk.  Weather permitting, we will go for a group walk along the Bibbulmun track – keeping an eye out for the beautiful wrens!
