"Excellent retreat"

If you haven't tried a silent retreat, you should. Lots of company with no distractions from the main task. Very liberating.

"The perfect retreat from everyday life. "

The location, amidst the rainforest, with Wollumbin looking over us from wherever we were was so special. The program was diverse, offering opportunities to practice yoga, meditation, forest bathing, time alone, time to connect with others, and especially, periods of silence.

I have just come home from a three day yoga retreat with Kara and Merryl. What a wonderful experience. We did beautiful yoga, ate delicious vegetarian food, learnt about the practice of yoga, and reconnected with our beautiful earth. Thank you Kara and Merryl for such a special experience.

Kara and Meryl provided an inspirational experience in the integration of yoga philosophy into daily life for all of us. This was my first experience at meditation during this wonderful retreat and I left knowing that a regular meditation practice is readily attainable.

Thank you Kara and Merryl for the most peaceful, perfect retreat. The silent retreat was beyond my expectations as it was so well organized with so many yoga and meditations classes to choose from each day. The food was sensational and the accommodation was perfect. I am looking forward to coming back very soon.
