Information for the Easter Retreat Hepburn Springs


Join us for Yoga in Daily Lifes Long Weekend Retreat in Hepburn Springs.  We hosted this retreat for the first time at Easter 2015. It was so good we immediately booked again for 2016 & then again for 2017! 
See the blog & photos > here of 2015. And > here for 2106.


Date: Starts Friday 14 April 3pm. Finishes Monday 17 April after lunch.


>>  ONLY 2 share ROOMS REMAINING <<
The share rooms are lovely. 2 people per room each with an ensuite. But you'll only sleep there as there are many comfortable communal spaces in the lounge (with open fire), sitting room, garden, veranda, dining room & the yoga room. Ear plugs work well in the case your roomie snores.

Leave your city life behind and rejuvenate on our long weekend yoga immersion retreat! This is a convenient way to recharge your batteries, soak up some pristine natural countryside, practice your yoga, eat nourishing vegetarian meals and enjoy the company of new friends.

This retreat will benefit people who:
   * have an existing regular yoga and meditation practice
   * enjoy a stronger physical practice (if you are unsure about that this means please attend the Tuesday or Thursday 6pm classes at Richmond to get a feel for it. Let the teacher, Swami Gopal, know you are interested in this retreat & ask him any questions regarding its suitability for you). People who prefer a gentle or general level practice please see our other retreats in Queensland & the Yarra Valley.
   * interested in more than just the physical practices, including meditation and the yoga philosophy and teachings that help us understand ourselves and this life more deeply
    * wish to immerse themselves in a few days of a balance program of challenging asana, stillness in meditation, depth in relaxation, expansion in learning and periods of silence and reflection  
   * wish to be nourished by delicious vegetarian meals, surrounded by beautiful nature of the famous spa country and company of like minded people

Return home inspired and motivated by what you will have experienced over these few days and let the benefits carry forward into the weeks and months ahead.


This retreat will be guided by our local Yoga in Daily Life instructors. The system of Yoga we teach is called Yoga in Daily Life which was developed by Paramhans Swami Maheshwarananda (Vishwaguruji), an authentic Yoga Master who hails from a long lineage of great Indian Masters. We hope this weekend will support you in deepening your capacity for your ongoing inner awakening and maintain the inspiration to practice regularly.
