Eco Yoga Retreat, Margaret River
Thurs 14 to Mon 18 October 2021

Retreat away enveloped by the beauty of our own amazing state, in Margaret River WA.  Nestled between some of the worlds most spectacular coastline and the abundant south west forest, our retreat place is a working permaculture farm, which holds the ethics that are in harmony with those of yoga – ‘care for the earth, care for the people, share resources’.

Have you thought about joining a retreat but not quite sure what its all about. In this retreat we aim to ‘retreat away’ from the demands of busy life, and a stressful year, to give ourselves the time and space to immerse in yoga practices, meditations, and healthy meals that are weaved together to nourish the body, heart and mind.

And then when we re-enter back into our daily lives we can do so feeling recharged, refreshed and renewed, ready to face the challenges from a relaxed, grounded, blissful and mindful basis.

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.

Heart

Learn and practice meditations that open the heart, still and quite the mind, and deepen our relationships to others.

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

Meditations to slow down, develop attentional skills and ultimately become familiar with our own hearts and minds.

Schedule

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, go for a walk around the farm or take a short outing.  Weather permitting we may make a trip to the beach together.  This retreat is the longest local retreat we have run so we include one full day of silent retreat with four practice sessions that day.

Venue

Fair Harvest is an incredible working permaculture and eco friendly farm.  The property has a minimal environmental footprint as:

  • all waste is composted on site
  • all water is reused on site
  • all fruit, veg, herbs, honey and eggs are grown on site
  • all drinking water is filtered rain water
  • camp kitchen and ablution block are built from Fair Harvest grown plantation timber
  • fire wood is harvested from our plantation
  • all power is harvested from our solar panels

Our yoga space will alternate between the two main buildings on site, the spacious yoga barn or the yoga room.  This peaceful setting is conducive and supportive for a weekend of yoga, meditation and delicious, nutritious vegetarian food.  This nature based retreat is sure to reset your body and mind into their natural state.

All accomodation on site is either camping or glamping.  We know this may not suit everyone, so we have not included accommodation in the retreat cost.  You can book your camping (tent, camper van, camper trailer etc) or glamping at Fair Harvest here or book nearby accomodation with more solid walls!  The address for our venue is 426 Carters Road (Corner Burnside Rd) Margaret River, WA 6285

Food

Delicious vegetarian meals will be prepared by our hosts, to nourish us as a support for our yoga and meditation practice.

Breakfast may include dahl, soups, curries, porridge, salads, tarts and even bliss balls!  We will contact you closer to the date to refine any dietary requirements.

The veggie box Rob is holding in the picture was produce from the farm – fresh and delicious.
