After dinner hosts an opening circle, followed by restorative yoga. This will set the foundations for the journey ahead.

Saturday morning begins with a more dynamic Yoga class, followed by breakfast. We will then make our way to meet the local elders who will bring us together for a Welcome to Country Ceremony.

Its then free time till lunch. Go for a swim, read a book by the fire or jump in the spa. Lunch will be ready when you are.

After we have filled our bellies with the colours of the rainbow, there will be another activity or workshop, followed by afternoon tea and a Yin Yoga class.

By then dinner is waiting, and your place in the shamanic circle awaits.

After circle there will be an optional Yoga Nidra session, to once again set you up for a restorative and healing sleep.

Sunday morning once again starts with a Yoga class, then fresh breakfast and tea, followed by our closing circle, sound healing, and free time on the property and the surrounding bushland.

If you chose the option to stay an extra night, you will have free time to enjoy the property followed by a nourishing and warm Dinner.
