And that is exactly what this day was all about.

The aim of this one day event organised in cooperation with another local Yoga Teacher, Penny Todman, was to offer fellow country folk the opportunity to relax and reflect in the style of an exotic overseas Retreat Centre (that wouldn't break the budget).

With a specific focus on providing relevant techniques and information useful for day-to-day life, the special Sunday comprised Yoga, Breathwork and Guided Meditation paired with a colourfully nutritious menu of homemade vegetarian goodness.

Despite the soaring temperature, the success of the day was obvious when each of our 10 guests farewelled us with words of sincere appreciation and laden with handmade gifts.
