Exploring the Chakras: Sunshine Coast Yoga Retreat

Friday 04 November, 2022 - Tuesday 08 November, 2022

This is a rare and unique opportunity to get to know your ‘self’ more deeply while exploring the application of traditional yogic techniques to transform and enhance the body’s vital flow of energy (prana). Are you ready to ditch the digital devices, escape the hustle and give yourself the time you need to tend to the inner life?

What to Expect

This retreat is suitable for beginners to advanced practitioners.

Along with a practical and down-to-earth presentation of chakra theory from the classical yogic perspective, you will have time for nature connection, personal reflection, and social interaction with other like-minded individuals.

You will experience a truly nurturing, gentle and sophisticated environment that supports authentic spiritual exploration without all the ego-stroking Insta-fabulous woo-woo.

Through this in-depth study of the body’s subtle energy centres (chakras), you will gain a new awareness of the power you inherently possess that enables you to improve your own physical health, re-balance the nervous system, optimize your energy levels, and overcome relentless mental chatter.
