“Just rest” is a three hour mini-retreat designed to completely rest and restore your whole being. This is a practice-only retreat, meaning we spend the entire time in restful practices.
We will begin with a carefully crafted moon-style hatha practice designed for calm. We will use forward fold poses and gently lengthened exhalations to gather the restless mind into a state of peace and ease, followed by pranayama for deep calm and meditation for stillness.
This will be followed by a full length restorative yoga practice for deep rest, and then a guided yoga nidra for ultimate relaxation. You will leave feeling restored, renewed and refreshed.
Exploration into how your body hold’s stress and tension
Guided relaxation exercises
Discussion & explanation of how the nervous system is involved in stress
Exercises to calm, ground and refresh your nervous system
We are very excited to announce that our very own, highly in demand teacher Sue Czuchwicki will be delivering a unique yoga session in collaboration with talented Adelaide musician Zachary Luka.
With a 12-year background in performing and composing on guitar, Zachary Luka traded playing on stage in various rock bands for the freedom and beauty of the Australian outdoors. An affinity for busking led him to take blues, roots and modern-folk concepts to create a unique and diverse playing style. Using acoustic and lap steel guitars, Zac will play music complimenting the ideals, philosophy and movement of this special yoga class.
This live music event is not to be missed. Please join Sue and Zachary Luka for a blissful journey through yoga and music. Following this soulful session chai tea and bliss class will be provided. Due to covid restrictions this will be outside (weather permitting!) so please bring a coat.

This online workshop addresses the most common questions, misunderstandings and confusing bits about meditation. It covers the essential how’s and why’s of creating a stable practice. The course will be run over 3 weeks, online as a group. Included are:
12 pre-recorded videos
4 live Q&A’s and live guided meditations
a course manual
and plentiful support from Kate.
We’ll explore many different aspects and approaches to and also queries about meditation. Such as
How do I quiet my mind and what do I do with my thoughts?
What is the point? What is meditation for? How is it different to just sitting and thinking?
I know it is good for me, but how do I make myself do it? How do I meditate consistently?
What technique am I supposed to be using? What is the right way to do it?
Am I supposed to be using guidance or do it on my own? And, how do I do it on my own?
In addition, the course addresses the struggles that Kate personally experienced as a beginner, and the mountains of wisdom and understanding that she has gathered along the way.
Kate is an Insight Meditation Teacher, Spiritual Mentor, Transformational Retreat Facilitator, Ayurvedic Yoga Specialist and a lifelong student of the Yoga and Buddha Dhamma.
