Come join me, Darshna Siva, for a wonder filled Winter Warmer Weekend set in the fold of the beautiful Kenthurst country side. Swami's retreat centre is situated on 60 acres of tranquil bush land a mere 55 minutes away from the centre of Sydney.
This weekend retreat offers time and space to recover, rejuvenate and revive from the hectic pace of life. Whether you just want to get away or you're needing some recovery time, the beautiful settings, delicious food, therapeutic yoga and heaps of time to meditate will leave you feeling bright and shiny.
Asides ample time to relax there is a pool for the brave souls, spa and sauna as well as gym and tennis/basketball court. The beautiful yoga studio looks out into nature bringing in the feeling of earth inspired yoga practices. The only challenge you will face is one of letting go and just being. No pushing, striving or achieving required, in fact you're invited to leave all your technological gadgets at home and come explore the true beauty, peace and healing of nature's nurturing. You get the bonus of meeting new people, sharing stories, space and silence whilst creating new experiences and friendships.

Let me guide you through some deeply nurturing yoga, breathing and meditation practices that will have you earthed, reconnected and refreshed. We'll play with some creative visualisations, mantra and some medicine drum and didgeridoo relaxation to help the body and mind experience some deep quiet relaxation as well as rejuvenation.

You have the option for some further deep nourishing by booking in for a massage or reiki session and, if you’d like an insight and more wisdom in what is arising in your life we can book you in for a Vedic astrology consultation
(Please note these options are at additional cost and must be booked in at the time of booking in for the retreat).

Massage is recommended to help cellular level stress release, as well as work with injury and/or issue sites in the body, it helps you to get reconnected with your body as well as provide that nurturing feeling of being cared for.

Reiki is an amazing practice that harnesses the life force around us to help us shift stagnation in the mind and body. It leaves works with the energy centres of the body by opening up the flow in all the channels.

Vedic Astrology is a science that has been used to thousands of years, it is based on the Moon sign, opposite to Western Astrology and is very precise as it works with the time and place of birth as well as the date. Knowing how planetary influences are impacting your day to day life, as well as learning more about your own true nature can have you being proactive rather than reactive with decision making as well as processing on a physical, emotional and spiritual level. Astrology is an amazing tool, like yoga, massage and meditation to help guide you to a place of understanding and reconnection.
