STRADBROKE ISLAND RETREAT

Yoga Retreats

Relax and Recharge Seaside Yoga Retreat

North Stradbroke Island, Queensland, Australia

3night/4day – Thursday afternoon to Sunday noon

 

Fitness Level: low to medium

Sunshine Yoga Retreats began the journey at Stradbroke Island in 1998. With just a short ferry ride from Brisbane, it allows for an easy surreal island getaway. Stradbroke offers wonderful beaches, swimming, cafes, massage therapists and bushwalks. In true Sunshine Yoga form, we have the perfect venue and setting, just a short walk to Main Beach, North Straddie.

Beach Boys BnB are a group of 3 townhouses and offer a feeling of luxury and relaxation. TwinShare and NonShare rooms are available. Meals are fresh-made, nutritious and tasty, prepared and cooked on the premises.

You will enjoy immensely the daily program of yoga, meditation, early morning energisation exercises, beach and bush walks, silence and free time. We include 3 nights, which over the years of facilitating yoga retreats I now know that 2 nights is not quite enough for most clients to unwind, de-stress and relax deeply. And lets face it, this is usually the sole purpose of why my clients need to get away to a fabulous Sunshine Yoga Retreat.

This venue is perfect for couples—and non-yogi partners are welcome.

Sunshine Yoga & Health’s program is varied and interesting. We offer a more gentle and slow approach. Focus on conscious breathing flows with your postures and movement throughout the whole session.

The subtle release work Lyn includes, clears the body and mind of tension and toxins and is an integral part of her unique style. It is the release work and slowing down the yoga practice which allows the body to build sustained strength and energy;   and the mind becomes focussed and calm.

You are encouraged to work at your own pace and attune to your own body’s needs – which does change from moment by moment, day by day, week by week.

Free time, silence time and fun time create the perfect balance for this fulfilling weekend you are about to experience.
