4 Day Zen Buddhist Yoga Retreat in Queensland

Zen Buddhist and Yoga Retreat, 32 Boundary Lane, Wootha / Maleny, Queensland, Australia

Short Yoga Retreats Australia

Expert tip: This is one of the most popular yoga retreats offered in Australia.

Greeted by smiling hosts, you will feel the compassion and contentment that is wrapped around this property. Gazing around you will feel the peace and tranquillity of the parkland gardens and the panoramic views. Meeting no more than 5 other guests, relax and recapture the true essence of your very being and take home with you a new meaning to your life and a meditation practice that works for you. The yoga instructor Rose will take you through a series of asana’s, building on them each day, giving options to the beginners and challenges for those who have been practicing for a while. Zen is not a religion, it is a way of life and will not diminish your own faith but enhance it. Zen Master Fushin will teach how you can recognize your own suffering and a way out of it.
