About the Yoga

Morning yoga will run from 6:30am to 8am allowing plenty of time for a leisurely breakfast.

The afternoon program will include the Restorative practices of Yoga Nidra, Yin Yoga and the use of props to support the body.  All yoga is optional so bring along a "non-yogi friend" if you like.

If you want to be out all day on an excursion, perhaps to Dunk Island or the Reef, this Retreat Centre is an ideal stepping off point.  

Getting There

Sanctuary Retreat is located two hours drive South of Cairns. If we can coordinate a large enough group to arrive/depart Cairns at the same time (i.e. arrival before 1:30pm, depart Cairns midday or later), a charter bus can be arranged to and from the airport and costs $45-$60 per person one way.

During the retreat, courtesy bus trips into Mission Beach are available for those who want to explore or get supplies.

Airfares to Cairns are not included in the price of the retreat.
