The YOga

With a focus on informed alignment based on a sound knowledge of anatomy and contemporary movement principles you will be adventuring into yourself with core generated flowing asana sequences. You will activate your deep core through rhythmic, circular and wave like motions that will mobilise and hydrate your body while building strength, power, lightness  and ease.

We will explore, meditation, pranayama, as well as self inquiry tools and techniques to help you navigate yourself and life with skill. We will explore new ways of moving that meets YOUR body's needs, taking your practice, awareness and love of self to a whole new level. Retreats with Jen will break you out of the same old box, revealing new territory in the body, mind and heart inspiring a dedication to living authentically, courageously and joyfully.

Jen is known for her warm and approachable style of facilitating that encourages self inquiry through curiosity, courage through vulnerability, playfulness and creativity through movement. You will leave this retreat feeling inspired, cleansed and restored.  


the location 

50 acres of lush tropical private rainforest

Secluded rainforest cabins and huts

In house massage available

Delicious cuisine (vegetarian and raw a specialty)

Swimming pool in the rainforest

Access to a near private secluded beach

Bird watching and creatures

Amazing views and an unspoilt paradise

Probably the best place in Australia to see a Cassowary in the wild

Check-in and check-out

Arrival time on the first day is from 2pm.  The first yoga class and formal group welcome is at 4.30 pm in the Yoga Hut, allowing you time to arrive, get settled into your room, eat well and perhaps have a massage or swim. Due to flights people arrive at all different times in the day but aim to be there as early as possible so you have time to unwind and relax before yoga.

Check-out of the resort and retreat end is 12 midday on the last day.

Deluxe Cabins

For those interested in more creature comforts, then the deluxe canopy cabins may be for you.

Larger than the rainforest huts, these cabins are stylishly appointed with polished wooden floors, handmade natural timber furniture and spectacular glass-walled bathrooms looking out high in the trees.

Rainforest Huts

Accessed by a boardwalk to protect the forest floor, the secluded rainforest huts have no solid walls; instead the timber structure is screened on all four sides with weatherproof curtains.  A minimalist design maximises the sights, sounds and smells of the rainforest. Each hut has a small veranda, simple furnishings and sleeps two in either double or twin occupancy. Share Bathroom (10 – 70 metres away)

Rainforest Huts with al fresco en-suites to four of the rainforest huts. These are mostly open air with a toilet and cold-water shower and hand basin.
