Spring Retreat | Torquay
​September 22-24, 2023

EOI for next retreat - March 2024 

Dear journal… It is Sunday, September 24th and I just came home from my weekend retreat in Torquay… 

After two days disconnected from my roles and responsibilities I feel more connected with myself, with my essence. I feel refreshed to come back to my life and my loved ones, energised and inspired.

I feel so good that I gave myself this time to enjoy some well deserved me-time. My body feels amazing, my heart is full and my soul is ready to create this new chapter of my life intentionally.

From the moment I arrived at Summer House I felt at home, the delicious food was truly nourishing for my body and indulging for my senses. I loved moving my body with the gentleness of Dru Yoga, the quiet moments, the beautiful company, the sunrise walk, the coastal breeze. That evening around the firepit is a memory that will stay with me forever.

I can’t wait for the next one…

You are invited...

Join us for a transformative and rejuvenating Dru Yoga retreat this Spring, where you'll deepen your spiritual practice, connect with beautiful people, and nourish your mind, body, and soul in a breathtaking setting amongst the coastal views of Torquay in Victoria, Australia.

Our theme for this retreat is "Seeds of Intention," and we'll be exploring how to create and nurture our intentions to create the life we truly desire. Spring is the perfect time for new beginnings, and we'll be taking advantage of the energy of the season to plant the seeds of our deepest desires and see them blossom in our lives.

Your Host...

Mariana Suarez
I am so excited about this retreat, it has been prepared with the most delicate details so you have the most amazing time.

My intention is to see you leave our weekend totally refreshed and inspired by the seeds you will be planting to create a new chapter of your life that has more joy and meaning. More connected with yourself, with the greatness of who you are.

​As a yoga teacher and mentor I am very intuitive and can easily recognise how to support you in the best possible way. I see your beauty and unlimited potential and I will do everything in my hands to be the mirror so you can see it too.

I look forward to sharing this beautiful experience with you.
