The Inner Journey
Tallow Beach Houses, set amongst the natural beauty of tea tree lake and Tallow beachfront, with its tranquil setting and diverse flora, is an ideal place for you to experience The Inner Journey, a 6 night yoga + art retreat.
The Inner Journey allows for a reprieve from your everyday life, giving you the opportunity to go more deeply into being with yourself & developing your practice. Each morning will be dedicated to meditation, pranayama breathing, qi gong & dynamic asana practice. The afternoons will focus on learning to see via various drawing and art making activities, which will culminate in a handmade book, which you will create over the course of the week.
There will also be ample time for relaxing, swimming and beach walking. You may supplement your experience with optional massage, hydrotherapy and infrared sauna.
Exquisite organic living vegetarian food is specifically organised for this retreat to enhance your experience of well-being and contentment. Please advise in advance of any dietary requirements or medical concerns you have.
Jacqui will introduce you to the practice of silence in the morning sessions; meditation & qi gong to gently wake up the body followed by a dynamic yoga session.
Christine will lead the afternoon creative sessions with drawing, collage, found object assemblage, printmaking , stitching and bookmaking techniques.
