Sunset over Mission Beach

Join us in one of Australia’s most beautiful places. Enjoy a week of relaxation and yoga in Mission Beach, North Queensland. This is a great opportunity to deepen your practice under the guidance of Certified Ashtanga Yoga teacher Karyn Grenfell. During the retreat there will be ample time to explore the beautiful beaches, rainforest, and coral reefs.

The retreat will be held at the ‘Sanctuary’, a unique rainforest eco-lodge in Mission Beach, North Queensland. The week promises to be a great balance of practice and theory…and spare time. There will be Mysore or led practice sessions before breakfast (but not too early!) and most afternoons there will be yoga philosophy, theory workshops and discussion. The afternoon workshops will focus on practical matters such as alignment, breath, dristhi and bandhas with time also given for discussion about some of the philosophical concepts surrounding yoga.

There are a variety of accommodation options from shared or single rain forest huts through to cabins with attached en suite.

2017 Testimonials:

Wonderful restorative week in a very special place – the Sanctuary Retreat high in the rain forest at Mission Beach.  
Great opportunity to reconnect or continue with daily practice – amazingly Karyn is able to ensure it works for you regardless of your circumstances at the start of the week.  To complement the yoga, there is plenty of time to explore the region or simply rest and relax.  There is no pressure either way and the food and hospitality is fantastic.  The cohort who joined were an eclectic interesting thoughtful group of people.  The first thing I did when I left was put the dates in the diary for next year.

The retreat at Mission Beach was pure bliss.  We escaped the thick of Melbourne’s winter to enjoy sunny, cloudless skies and beach weather!!
It was such a treat to have some space to be immersed in yoga; time for long savasanas, to ask questions and discuss the practice and hang out with fabulous friends over extended brunch!  Practising in the beautiful rain forest room with the sounds of nature and lush green views was pretty special and felt a million miles away from city life.  For me the highlight was being able to slow down to focus and learn from Karyn about all aspects of yoga… in paradise!  
The accommodation and food at Sanctuary Retreat were fantastic, plus we had plenty of time every day to relax and explore the stunning beaches.  Just one week away on the retreat was so refreshing and reinvigorating, at just the right time of year!
