A retreat is the chance to leave daily responsibilities behind and experience the benefits that continuous daily practice and personal reflection bring. Taking time on a retreat is one of the most effective ways to start to grow your meditation practice.

Join me for a weekend of meditation and rejuvenation in the beautiful Macedon Ranges. Just 54 km from Melbourne you are invited to let go of daily pressures and come immerse yourself in nature, meditation, yoga and deep relaxation.

Enjoy daily Meditation classes, Deep Relaxation Yoga Nidra and Gentle Hatha yoga suitable for all levels.

If you are not used to sitting for meditation unsupported you can sit on a chair or on one of the couches.

The talks will be on the Buddhist philosophy and the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali encompassing how to manage the mind by understanding the nature of the mind, how to respond to different states that come about in meditation and the benefits of practicing for a happier more content experience of life.

Healing mantra fire ceremony on Saturday night.

Yoga classes will be focusing on postures that help sitting, increase flexibility, relaxation and emotional equilibrium.

About Shuddhachittam

Shuddha teaches Traditional Hatha Yoga, guiding students to witness the body, breath and thoughts, creating mindfulness through Yoga. She believes that mind and body healing can be experienced through the traditional Yoga postures, bestowing benefits to the practitioner by holding the poses and repetition. Shuddha also has an ardent interest in alignment in her classes and regularly attends Iyengar classes to deepen her experience of postural awareness.

Shuddha’s interest in spirituality started from a young age when she practiced meditation with the desire to astrally project and see auras… unfortunately she didn’t succeed at that time! She has travelled to India 8 times and has attended various courses in the Tantric traditional practices of Chakra Shuddhi, Prana Vidya, Tattwa Shuddhi, Puja, Havan and Yajnas.

Shuddha started practicing Yoga when she was 14 years old at the Sivananda Yoga Ashram in Perth. 9 years later she completed her first teacher training and started teaching in 2005. Shuddha has completed over 1900 hrs of Yoga teacher training and lived as a Yoga Monk (Sannyasin) at the Bihar School of Yoga from 2011-2013. She has her own daily practice of Yoga and Meditation and frequently attends Vipassana meditation silent retreats to deepen her practice. Meditation is one of the main passions in her life as it has helped her to gain greater insight into herself and the tools to help maintain emotional equilibrium through the ups and downs that life offers.

Shuddha is also a qualified Hypnotherapist, Theta Healer and Ayurvedic Consultant and Massage therapist.
