This will be our third visit because the first 2 times were so awesome! My favourite retreat to date. Join us ...

Awakening Peace Within: Yoga Retreat

While we all ‘exist’, we know there is more to life. Take some time out to let the stress & busyness of usual life peel off you. Rediscover your true nature allowing your life to bloom into vitality, inspiration and aliveness. This is what the authentic Yoga in Daily Life practice offers.

You will enjoy the sensation of your body relaxing; your face softening as your breath calms and your movements become slower and awareness arrives to the present moment. As you acquire new depth and stillness within your meditations, you will come into the lightness of being, awakening the peace that is already within you.

This retreat offers you daily Yoga in Daily Life classes, guided meditations, yoga nidra, mini workshops, inspiring talks and ample free time to relax or explore within the unique, lush and warm tropical North Queensland, ensuring a balanced, nourishing and enriching experience.

Average daily temperatures at this time of year are 25 degrees!


Whats included:

  • 6 nights accommodation
  • 3 nourishing and incredibly delicious meals a day
  • tea, coffee and fruit available 24/7
  • our complete yoga and meditation programme


This retreat features special guest yogi Swami Madhuram. 

Swami Madhuram has been studying and teaching Yoga & Meditation under the guidance of HH Paramhans Swami Maheshwarananda (Vishwaguruji) for more than 15 years. His interest in what is called "Nada Yoga", the yogic path of sound, has seen him use his musical skills playing Bansuri (Indian bamboo flute) and chants for his own practice and sharing with others.

Imagine this, because it's almost magical ... being in a yoga space surrounded by the tranquility and ambience of the rainforest and inside the teacher is leading the meditation with his Bansuri flute, and chants that heighten the resonance of peace within and around us.

Getting there:
Flights are not included. Book your flight arriving & departing from Cairns. 
We will arrange a shuttle bus to pick us up from Cairns domestic airport & take us to the venue. If you wish to use this option arrive in Cairns before 12.25pm. Going home book flights after 12noon. Its around 2 hours from the airport to the venue. The shuttle is an extra cost of approx $50.
Alternately you may wish to hire your own car.
We recommend getting travel insurance.

We are staying at
The Sanctuary at Mission beach is located deep within the rainforest in Far North Queensland, where the rainforest meets the sea. The forest provides a magical place to retreat and to look deeply into the nature around us, as well as our own inner nature. Brooks Beach is a secluded beach, only 10 minutes’ walk away, and an amazing place to bask in the beauty of where the forest and the sea come together. The Sanctuary is one of the best places in Australia to see a cassowary in the wild!  With this in mind, be aware that by living within nature we are also sharing the forest with its original inhabitants. Insects, birds, and lizards may visit the vicinity of the living quarters. These ‘visitors’ are not dangerous, and the forest is their home too. 
Sanctuary can be found at 72 Holt Rd, Garners Beach, Mission Beach in tropical North Queensland, about 2 hours south of Cairns.

A few extra things to consider ...

  • While Sanctuary offers a luxurious natural environment, some traditional resort services are not standard here, i.e. there are no porters to transport guest’s luggage.
  • Sanctuary is in a totally natural environment you will come into contact with a variety of wildlife, including insects. Sanctuary is not a place for arachnophobes.
  • Sanctuary and the accommodation are set high on a ridge on a 50 acre rainforest nature reserve. Because of the hilly and steep terrain makes it important for you to consider your fitness level before booking in. A 4WD transfer is provided to carry guests and luggage on arrival and departure, though during their stay guests walk a ten minute forest trail from the beach and car park to Sanctuary and its accommodation. There are also steps at the entrance to many huts and cabins. Children under the age of 11 years old will not be accommodated. *Additional 4WD transfers can be organised at extra cost.
  • You can learn more from the FAQs on the Sanctuary website
