Sue Hawkins has been running yoga retreats for over 12 years and continue to offer the perfect opportunity to unwind, revive and enjoy daily yoga practice with other like minded women and men.

Join us for a  week of inspirational activities that will invigorate your body, mind and spirit. From yoga, meditation, pilates, detox and cleansing packages, restorative massages, pamper treatments, Reiki, organic vegetarian food, walks in nature and more you will immerse yourself in a supportive and nurturing environment.

The retreat offers a great start for the beginner yogi to more experienced students as we believe in giving a variety of tools and guidance to suit our guests needs. Enjoy transformative sessions that revive, inspire and boost your energy levels yet relax you at a much deeper level. The retreats offer a a chance to deepen your understanding of asana and breath work and enhance your own yoga practice.

And there is plenty of free time to escape from the daily pressures of life with a relaxing massage, pamper treatment or enjoy some quiet, reflection time on beautiful Tallows Beach.

The combination of our program will leave you feeling relaxed, rejuvenated and uplifted. A life changing experience.

  • When I booked the retreat, my mindset was that I needed to focus on myself through yoga and meditation. The week has been that and so much more. The women I shared my room with have become firm friends and the time we shared talking about our life experiences, laughing and crying have bonded us. We have made a pact to go to Bali next year to do another retreat because this has been so fantastic and a true life experience! Thank you so much Sue.

  • A great gift to myself. I feel renewed and reborn, sounds silly but it has really happened for me! I am a new person and ready to start living and be happy. A special thanks to Sue and her many years of experience. Yoga was varied and strong enough for all levels.  The Core energetics work was powerful stuff – Ranil is a master!

The afternoons are for re balancing from the activities of the day. It is a time for inner reflection with a focus more on restorative and relaxation practice, often incorporating a Yoga Nidra (deep relaxation). Restorative yoga is very beneficial for healing the effects of chronic stress when practiced regularly. A 10 minute “svasana” (relaxation pose) is given after every class.
