Here's What Others Are Saying:

"The way in which both Vanessa and Michael teach is inspirational to say the least."  

"Just want to express my deepest gratitude for your passion and dedication to life and evolution and your commitment to sharing your learning with us.  The way of your explanations and writing have a very potent inclusion of non dualism in such an easy to digest way.  There can be so much piety to spiritual teachings and the way you deliver the content is so wholesomely free of that.  Thank you."

"Thank you again for your wisdom and sharing.  I am still in the after glow of the retreat and loving my morning meditation more than ever.  In fact, 20 minutes now seems too short.  I am more able to share the ‘calm living’ with some of my clients with welcome feedback.  I wasn’t expecting the guided tracks so this is an extra treat"

Retreat FAQ:

What should I bring?

  • Your yoga mat
  • Meditation Cushion
  • Any other equipment you regularly use (block, strap etc)
  • A journal & pen
  • A few changes of yoga clothes. You will be practicing some form of yoga both morning and evening.
  • A shawl or t-shirt for covering your shoulders at meal time
  •  Warmer loose fitting casual clothes for the evening sessions
  • Your own towel and toiletries.
  •  Bedding is provided - though in winter you may like to bring extra blankets
  •  Torch may be helpful
  • Insect repellent & sun cream
  •  Wet weather gear if it is forecast - umbrella, gumboots, raincoat
  • When should I arrive?

    Aim to Arrive at Chenrezig at 9.30am. We commence with a yoga class at 10am in the Community Room/Wellbeing Centre on the Thursday/Friday (depending on retreat) morning. 

    Your rooms may not be ready for you so it's best to leave your bags in the car and take them to your room at lunch. If you know that you are staying in the female dorms then you can take your bags directly to the community room.

    Our retreat is held in the Community Room, newly renamed the Wellbeing Centre. There is a map in the carpark for your information.

    Do I have to do everything?

    Absolutely NOT. Everyone is welcomed to yoga, just as they are. This often means that you may be carrying niggling injuries, varying levels of fitness, flexibility and strength. The best thing you can do is to honour yourself, exactly where you are on any given day. Pushing beyond your limits is not generally recommended in yoga. However, there are times when the only way to grow and move forward is to give something a go. You need to become your best judge as to when the time is right. There is plenty of time for nature walks & time off but if you need more you are welcome to take it (Unless this is a Teacher Training Retreat).  The retreat is yours!

    Where can I park?

    There is ample parking at Chenrezig.  When you arrive instead of parking in the first car park, go over a slight rise and into the second car park.  The Wellbeing Centre is accessed directly via a set of stairs DOWN from this car park.

    Leave your bags in the car but bring all your yoga equipment with you.  We usually start with some yoga straight up so it's a good idea to wear yoga gear straight away.

    There is a toilet located via the deck on the left of the Wellbeing centre.

    Refunds & Cancellations - 

    Your $100 deposit is refundable if you cancel with four or more weeks notice before your retreat starts. You can choose to transfer your deposit to another course. There are no refunds or transfers with less than 4 weeks notice unless covid related.
