Leaves, trees and soft earth help to reconnect us city-dwellers with our soft, animal bodies. Spending time in nature and quietly attending to ourselves restores a natural sense of balance and ease, refreshing our perspective and outlook. At Mysore Melbourne, practicing yoga is a daily, year-round activity. We retreat to rest, take a break from other daily concerns and enjoy our practice in the company of old and new friends.
We offer 2 retreats in 2018:
A Weekend at Amarant Retreat in the Yarra Valley 12-14 October (June dates postponed)
Ayurveda Retrat at Sukhavati, Balli 14-21 September

a weekend at Amarant Retreat
about weekends at AMARANT retreat
Come spend a weekend with us at beautiful, peaceful Amarant Retreat in the Yarra Valley. Alongside our yoga and meditation program, enjoy 25 acres of private rainforest, and 3 delicious, plant-based meals each day.
Our retreat is a nourishing and refreshing 2 days in the forest. Together we cultivate a peaceful, meditative environment where we continue with our Ashtanga yoga practice. This retreat is open to both beginners and established Ashtanga yoga practitioners. Amanda leads the group in Mysore-style classes, chanting, and silent-sitting. We will also make space for exploration and enquiry into supportive life habits, the philosophical aims of practicing yoga, and difficulties arising on the path such as physical and emotional pain. Free time is for reading by the fire, walking on the many forest paths and connecting with nature.
*Retreat prices include accommodation, all meals, snacks, juices and smoothies and retreat program led by Amanda Ferris.
