The first module of the Dimensions of Yoga Series will look at hatha yoga in a systematic in-depth way that is closely aligned with yoga’s rich tradition but also takes into account the pressures and distractions of living in today’s world.

With a straightforward light touch to both theory and practice, the course will unfold in a balanced way, according to the Satyananda system of yoga. It will closely follow classic practices and texts such as Hatha Yoga Pradipika and Gheranda Samhita (rarely taught in Australia).

The course will carefully explore hatha yoga as a systematic progression, working with body, breath, energy and mind. Starting simply with practices according to the capacity of each participant, this course will provide an overview of hatha yoga practices including: shatkarmas (cleansing practices), asanas, mudras and bandhas, pranayama, as well as pratyahara and techniques for creating a quieter mind (from a hatha yoga perspective).

There will be an emphasis on how hatha yoga provides an essential set of tools for any serious yoga practitioner. After completing this course you will have a toolkit to take with you throughout your yogic life.

Yoga Retreat - The Power of Positive Thinking 

How to Break the Worry Habit

19 - 21 Jan     $330 Enrol
20 - 21 Jan     $270 Enrol

Designated times of silence will be offered during the Retreat. 

Worry is an unhealthy mental and emotional habit pattern that we have let unconsciously creep into our lives. It is a habit we have acquired, disconnecting us from our natural state of being and awareness of the here and now.

Yoga proposes that habitual patterns can be altered through the practices of:
  • Deep rhythmic breathing
  • Yoga Nidra – consciously turning off the stress response and eliciting the relaxation response
  • Yoga postures & Meditation
  • Sankalpa – personal intention
  • Living more consciously
  • Attention to what nurtures and refreshes us
  • Renewed awareness
  • Emptying the mind daily and pausing from the relentless busy-ness we find ourselves in 
  • Cultivating healthy sleep patterns
  • Understanding how external overload creates worry and drains our energy for clear thinking and better decision making

Yoga, Meditation & Relaxation Long Weekend Retreat

Renewed Awareness can Remake and Refresh You

25 - 28 Jan     $360 Enrol Early Bird by18 Jan  
25 - 28 Jan     $400 Enrol
26 - 28 Jan     $350 Enrol

"As you think, so shall you be."  

Flush out old, tired worn-out thoughts and emotions and fill your mind with refreshed new creative thoughts, actions and responses, with Yoga Nidra & pranayama.   Learn to turn off the stress response button and elicit the relaxation response.



  • Develop inner calmness, and nourish every aspect of your life through the practice of Yoga Nidra - conscious relaxation 
  • Prananyama for cultivating a balanced approach in life - conscious breathing practices develop optimal breathing patterns and correct poor breathing habits that negatively impact on the mind and emotions in the form of stress related disorders
  • Meditation - awaken and develop your inner awareness as the one who can observe with equanimity 

By utilising these simple practices, develop deep peace by gradually training the mind to release tensions that may be held in the body, the muscles and breath. Release impressions from the past and anxieties about the future.  These tools will assist in developing a quieter mind which will gradually lead to inner calmness and a clearer outer perception of oneself. 

Through these practices you can:

  • Manage emotions & expectations with balance
  • Reduce stress & improve health & wellness
  • Increase relaxation by releasing physical, mental and emotional tensions
  • Develop equanimity by balancing the nervous system
  • Develop awareness and presence of mind
  • Strengthen your resolve and develop your willpower
  • Self care & nurturing yourself
  • Periods of silence to quieten the mind

A Yoga Mindful Lifestyle Retreat differs a little from the Living Consciously program in that extra time is allocated after lunch to deepen relaxation and reclaim inner balance and direction during your personal retreat. Course material and group meetings are consistent with the Living Consciously concept of awareness.

What was beneficial about the retreat?

  • Yoga Nidra, the daily topic to witness and reflect on and the balance of all the yogas including Karma Yoga were highlights in my life changing experience. 
  • Wonderful. It is one of the most peaceful settings I've had the privilege to be in. I am inspired.  
  • Location, affordability & ethos
  • Group sessions. Complete toolkit to help re-assess your mind/lifestyle

During A Yoga Mindful Lifestyle Retreats program participants will discover, experience and analyse the methods by which yogic principles and practices can be applied in their daily lives.
