About the yoga: Your retreat hosts are Jessie Chapman, Haydie Osborne-Hitchens and the experienced Radiance facilitators who’s inspirational classes are designed for all levels from the complete beginner to the more experienced practitioner. Yoga assistants give lots of individual attention and adjustments in the classes so everyone is well looked after.

Accommodation at Gymea: All rooms equipped with 5 star eco inner sprung latex topped single or king beds and organic sheets. Each room includes its own shower and toilet. If sharing a room please be aware that the shower is situated inside the bedroom however it has an opaque screen so it is not see through. Please select a single room if privacy is an issue for you. If booking a share room we put you with a same sex person.

About the food: Our meals are lovingly prepared using fresh organic ingredients mainly sourced from the local area. The menu is abundant, delicious and healthy. This is not a fast so you won’t go hungry, however we cut out meat, dairy foods, sugar and alcohol so your body will be lightly cleansing. Each morning after yoga we sip a fresh healthy juice before our lovely buffet breakfast. Lunch is another delicious meal and dinner often starts with a nutritious soup. Teas and fruits are available throughout the retreat as well as purified drinking water. By the retreats end you’ll be feeling energised, clear and nourished and you’ll have lots of recipes and ideas for continuing your healthy eating at home.

Pick-up & arrival: Our group pick-up is at 12.30 pm at the Coolangatta/Gold Coast International Airport. Note that Queensland does not have daylight saving, and is one hour behind NSW. Please ensure you book a flight to arrive at this time or earlier. If arriving in the morning you can head to the beach or local area before meeting back at the Airport for the pick-up or relax at the airport cafe. Upon arrival you will check-in and be shown to your room, enjoy some teas and fruit before our first yoga class and group welcome at 5 pm allowing you time to get settled, look around and perhaps have a swim. Check-out of the retreat is at 10.30 am with group transfer back to the airport. We will plan to have you dropped to the airport by 11.30 am (note that Daylight Saving finishes on the 5th of April).
