Autumn Retreat | Torquay
April 26-28, 2024​

Last Few Spots! 

You are invited...

Join us for a transformative and rejuvenating Dru Yoga retreat this Autumn, where you'll immerse yourself in the serene beauty of the season, connect with like-minded souls, and revitalise your mind, body, and spirit along the breathtaking coastal views of Jan Juc in Victoria, Australia.

Our theme for this retreat is "Live Lighter," an invitation to release, forgive, and rediscover the joy of life. Just as the leaves gracefully fall and nature prepares for a season of rest, we too can shed the weight of emotions that no longer serve us and embrace a lighter, more playful way of living.

Here's what you can anticipate:

  1. Emotional Liberation: Through guided workshops and mindful practices, you'll learn to let go of emotions that no longer serve you. Say goodbye to the baggage that's been holding you back and feel the grace of walking lighter again.
  2. The Power of Forgiveness: Explore the profound healing of forgiveness. Free yourself from the chains of regret, anger & resentment and open your heart to love and connection.
  3. Embracing Playfulness: Rediscover the joy of life! Through mindful movement, creative expression, and nature walks, you'll connect with your inner child and remember the delight of living in the moment.

Beyond the Weekend - A 6-Week Journey to Flourish Together

The magic of our retreat doesn't end when the weekend concludes; it's actually just the beginning. The energy stirred during the retreat can continue to ripple, and emotions may surface weeks later. That's why I've curated a unique retreat offering to ensure you not only embrace but flourish in the changes you seek.

After our weekend retreat, you'll embark on a six-week journey of intentional guidance, seamlessly woven into your daily life. This online support is designed to facilitate a smooth integration process, allowing you to absorb the insights gained and nurture the special connections forged during our weekend together. As the six weeks unfold, you'll find your retreat community becoming a wellspring of support, inspiration, and shared growth.

To culminate this transformative journey, we'll gather for a joyous 2-hour gathering at our studio in Essendon. It's a moment to revel in the new, embellished version of yourself shaped by the retreat experience and the bonds of a community that believes in your journey.

Your evolution is a continuous, blossoming journey, and we're here to walk with you every step of the way.
