Kookaburra Creek Yoga have several onsite accommodation options which include shared rooms in the newly refurbished retreat centre which can accommodate 12 guests in single beds. There is a renovated railway carriage which sleeps two guests in a king size bed. There are two private enclosed gazebos which sleep one to two people.

Why attend this retreat?

During a single day, humans take in millions of impressions through the senses - all of which imprint upon and become embedded in the body, mind, and soul. Their accumulation leads to sensory overload, stress, and a reduced capacity to cope physically, mentally, and emotionally. When stressed, they can become less mindful of what they eat, what they do, and where their thoughts lead them. They make reactionary and sometimes poor choices, which often lead to more stress with a negative impact upon their mental and emotional wellbeing and physical health.

The focus of this weekend retreat is to consciously retreat from the sources of all those impressions through cleansing yoga, meditation and pranayama, a gentle, introductory 'soft' fast which includes teas, tonics, juices, and then the introduction of nourishing, healing foods.

Holistic yoga

Traditional Hatha yoga is comprised of five distinct points, which together comprise a balanced and holistic system of self-care and self-awareness. These include: proper exercise (yoga asana, walking in nature), proper breathing (pranayama), proper relaxation (yoga Nidra), proper thinking (meditation), proper diet and lifestyle (sattvic or peaceful food, time in nature). On this retreat, you will be guided and supported to fully experience the five points of yoga and the yogic lifestyle. The Hatha yoga sessions will be therapeutic in cleansing, healing, and rebalancing.

When practiced with sincerity and integrated into everyday life and everyday thinking, traditional yoga perfectly and effortlessly brings balance and harmony to the five aspects of self: the body, breath, mind or emotions, wisdom, and soul. Kookaburra Creek Yoga share the teachings of yoga 'philosophy', which relate to the cleansing practices offered on this retreat and increase your understanding of the 'self', the causes and sources of stress and tension, and the rationale behind the methods.

Cleanse and build

On this retreat, Kookaburra Creek Yoga take a 'soft' approach to fasting with the inclusion of Ayurvedic herbal teas, broths, tonics, juices, and an abundance of filtered pure spring water which rises from the ground upstream. They prepare for and break the fast with nourishing, easily digested foods such as soft fruits, kitchari (rice, mung bean, spices, vegetable dish), lassi (yoghurt, rose water, cardamom, salt, jaggery), halwa (sweet carrot dessert cooked in nut milk), and then reintroduce broader, nourishing and delicious foods.

In some cultures and traditions, fasting is a regular practice, but for many people fasting of any form is rare. Ekadashi (the 11th day after the full and new moon) is the given day for fasting on the Vedic Lunar calendar. When you restrain from your usual eating habits, the body is allowed to rest internally, with no energy being spent on digestion, you literally create an inner space, an emptiness from which subtle and profound yoga experiences are given the space to emerge. You may experiences depths in your practice, which are not normally accessible to you. Physically your body feels lighter and refreshed. Given its brevity and the fact you will consume pure water, herbal teas, tonics, broths and juices, this fast should be suitable for most people.

Lightness and joy

Your diet and lifestyles are comprised of highly addictive foods and behavior, so refraining from usual eating can be challenging, but is ultimately empowering and transformational! With the support of your retreat facilitators, a grounding in yoga and meditation practices, the knowledge you gain through your experiences and the information imparted, you will leave this retreat profoundly lighter, freer, and revitalized.

Kookaburra Creek Yoga invites you to experience the depths possible in yoga during fasting. This is truly a powerful combination which can help transform your relationship with food, help overcome deep-seated fears which may influence your thinking and choices (you won't starve!), increase your willpower, resolve mental focus and clarity of thought, understand and reduce anxiety, tension and stress, and deepen your appreciation of life and sense of purpose.

Fire ceremony

Agni Hotra is a purifying vedic fire ceremony performed exactly at sunset and sunrise. The ceremony is purifying and cleansing to both the environment and to participants. The Havan is a longer ceremony, which uses vedic mantras and is powerfully protective and transformative.

    "Thank you Robert and Mandy for a beautiful 'Stillness' day. I thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of the day's activities. My favourite was probably the meditation in nature. Not to mention the vegan lunch - & this is from someone who generally doesn't like vegetables!!! If you could share your recipe for what I think was the dal dish, I'd be eternally grateful. I will definitely be joining one of your yoga classes soon. Thanks again x"
