YOGA AND NATURE IMMERSION RETREAT

7 - 10 October 2022

Kings Beach, Fleurieu Peninsula, South Australia

 

OVERVIEW

Join Leah from The Centre of Ki and Lisa from Big Heart Adventures and nurture your mind, body and spirit for three nights at the exclusive Kings Beach Retreat.

This retreat will give you the opportunity to experience a new level of health and wellbeing. The retreat program includes beach walks, daily yoga and meditation sessions, ocean dips (for the brave), journaling activities, a 3-hour guided nature immersion and a healing sound bath. All meals will be lovingly prepared on site from seasonal, organic, whole food ingredients.

Staying at Headland House, you will be treated to spectacular beach and ocean views. The house itself is made from local rammed earth and recycled jetty beams. Snuggle in by the cosy wood fire in the evening and enjoy a bedroom with your own private ensuite.

NATURE

At Kings Beach Retreat, there is an amazing diversity of nature at your doorstep. The retreat itself overlooks the beach and is adjacent to Newland Head Conservation Park – a rare ecosystem of high conservation significance.

An abundance of native vegetation and wild flowers can be seen and you may also spot native bird species including the Superb Fairy-wren, Golden Whistler, Brown Thornbill, Peregrine Falcon, Sea Eagle and Wedge-tailed Eagle. Other animals you may see include kangaroos, echidnas, and lizards.


Kings Beach Retreat is also an excellent spot for whale watching. Southern Right Whales and Humpback Whales may be seen during the migration season from May to October. Bring your binoculars!

Friday 7 October

Arrive at your leisure and check in between 4 – 5pm. Settle in with a hot cup of tea and enjoy the breathtaking views of the ocean and Kings Beach. 


The evening will commence with Leah guiding you through a relaxing yoga and meditation session. Afterwards, you will be invited to journal your intentions for the weekend. The evening meal will then be served and you will have time to relax further before settling into bed.

DAY 2

Saturday 8 October

Start the day off with an early morning beach 'joggle' and a dip in the ocean. Alternatively, enjoy a lie in and then hop on your mat for an invigorating morning yoga class. Enjoy a hearty, whole food breakfast and then take some time to rest and relax. 


Before lunch, Lisa will offer a nature journaling session. In the afternoon, join in a gentle yoga and qi gong class, followed by a healing sound bath care of Chris Toms from Harmonic Essence. After the evening meal, you will be invited to enjoy a natural therapy treatment before retiring to bed.

A similar start to the day as Saturday – beach 'joggle' and ocean dip followed by yoga and meditation.

In the afternoon, Lisa will lead a 3-hour nature immersion activity. Following the evening meal, you will be invited to enjoy a natural therapy treatment before retiring to bed.

DAY 4
