The Daintree Rainforest has been called the “GARDEN OF THE GODS” by many who have had the privilege of witnessing the Majestic Beauty and Ancient Wisdom, imbued in the Shakti of the Trees.
A Place of Great Spirit, Potent Vibrational Healing Energy and Breathtaking Beauty, it is a rare location in the world where the tropical rainforest meets the Reef.

Mornings will be focused around HathaYoga/Tantra Yoga practices filled with daily ritual, yoga asana, pranayama, mudras and meditations.
The evenings will be filled with creative movement dance workshops transporting us into another realm of Being, hopefully leaving us in a more peaceful, radiant and illuminated state of Consciousness.
The middle of the days are yours and free to explore the many magical, mystical wonders that the Rainforest and Great Barrier Reef have to offer.
I feel blessed to be co-facilitating the evening dance workshops with Alex Jordan. Her vibrant spirit, innovative work and creative welcoming style really needs to be experienced to be believed. Each morning and evening session is designed to be creative, transformative, insightful, healing, uplifting and exploratory whilst still holding true to the authenticity and integrity of Yoga and Dance. Blessed with wonderful hosts, delicious food and the sounds and movements of Nature all around us… come join us in this magnificent sanctuary embedded in one of the worlds greatest natural Gardens…come plant Divine new seeds for your life & let them Dance with the Divine.
