breath of life - 3 day breath and energy WORKSHOP with Lasse Holopainen

25 - 27 October 2019 

Our breath is inextricably linked to our human energy.  Over three days you will gain an intimate understanding of how you breathe, and learn the fundamentals of how to become a better breather.  Join Lasse as he leads you through a discovery of the most powerful force in your life, your breath.  The aim is to awaken the breathing muscles and develop proper breathing habits through the practice of ancient yogic and qi gong techniques.  This has the dual effect of  expanding your lung capacity and while creating an elegant, graceful unconscious breath - leading to more energy, better sleep, and an overall sense of calm.  


DETOX AND RESTORE Retreat with Joan Hyman

11 - 15 March 2020

Learn to practice and eat according to your individual needs

Yoga and Ayurveda go hand and hand and help us to understand how to embody these ancient practices and live a life that builds vitality and well-being.

Retreats offer us a chance to immerse ourselves in these healing practices and gain the healing powers that nature can offer. This creates an ideal setting to cleanse the body and mind from daily distractions and help to connect deeper into our being. 



For those extra special few, the retreat will be accepting a limited number of bookings for birthday, anniversary, wedding or partnership ceremonies.

We can assist with event planning, accommodation, catering and various other local vendor recommendations.
