  • Miriam Vandoorn

    Miriam brings together physical yoga asana practice with stimulating non-dogmatic philosophy to create a conscious experience of presence and living wisdom in the body and in the heart. Her classes are ever changing, infused with warmth and vigour, and although being challenging, never losing site of the deeper side of practice that calls for open, non-judgmental observation.

This retreat will take place at Tallow Beach Houses. This Byron Bay beachfront house stands where the beach and the bush come together on the edge of the Arakwal National Park. Stay in your own secluded beach house located in a private 30 acre sanctuary with 630 meters of beachfront, halfway between the lighthouse and Broken Head. Uncrowded waves, the friendly wildlife, a tranquil lake, and a bicycle track complete the scene. Wake up and sleep to the hypnotic sound of the ocean waves and immerse yourself in the peace, and tranquility of this very unique resort.

    "Thank you so much for a wonderful long weekend! The quality of your teaching and guidance was excellent in so many ways! Even as a beginner to some moves I felt very comfortable as you provided clear options for all. It was also interesting and a fun experience to see other more advanced yoga performed by others such as the headstand and back bend. I achieved so much from the repetition, but there was plenty of variety and new moves there for me to learn too! Even with a class, your approach was personal and attentive as you came around the room to assist all of us. The retreat facilities were lovely from the quality of the rooms, to the excellent facial, relaxing massage, friendly staff and spa and sauna experience. I felt so spoiled and pampered."
