Being Yoga Retreat FAQs

What should I bring?

Step 1
  • 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?

    Step 1

    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?

    Step 1

    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.  The retreat is yours!

    Where can I park?

    Step 1

    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.

    How much money will I need?

    Step 4

    Your meal and accommodation costs are included in the retreat price. You may like to bring some extra cash for the beautiful desserts and chai tea in the Big Love Cafe 🙂 Chenrezig also has a lovely book, Buddhist supplies and gift shop if you are interested.  

      What time do we finish?

    Step 5

    You can aim to leave around noon on the Sunday or stay and enjoy lunch at the Big Love Cafe before heading home (then you may not need to cook dinner when you get home - bonus ;0)  

    What sort of accommodation does Chenrezig have?

    Step 6

    Chenrezig Institute offers a range of accommodation options at the following prices:

    • ~ Dormitory rooms (4 or 8 share)
    • ~ Motel rooms (twin shared rooms with shared bathroom)
    • ~ Motel room (single with shared bathroom - there are only 4 of these)

    The choice is yours, though the single options are usually the first to fill. If you are happy with shared twin accommodation you will be sharing with another retreat attendee.
