The highlight of the weekend was not only the beautiful setting and the entrancing meditation but the genuinely interesting and gentle natured people who came together and were so generous and caring. If you enjoy yoga or are just starting out this retreat will suit.
Loved it all
The three days at the Mount Glorious retreat was my first yoga retreat ever and I was not disappointed. Comfortable accommodation, healthy nutritious food and great company along with new experiences in yoga made for a very inspiring weekend. The music vibration therapy was particularly enjoyable and something to remember. And if was great to be in an absolute green peaceful space. Well done Shivjoti and look forward to another.
Thoroughly enjoyable…Lovely to be in such a beautiful environment with relaxing meditation, good company and nutritional meals. It is amazing to find that this peaceful venue is so close to Brisbane. We would love to come back one day…Thank you...
Was lovely to retreat to a quiet, lush forest setting filled with fresh air and yoga vibes!! The yoga, food, cooking class and campfire kirtan were all very enjoyable. Plenty of opportunities for some alone time if you choose.
Shivjyoti is an inspired teacher. I can’t recommend her classes highly enough. She not only has an encyclopaedic knowledge of the asanas, but is a true spiritual leader. I finish every class feeling calm, peaceful, and with my body and mind aligned and ready for the challenges of life.

Some people are born to be teachers. Shivjyoti is one of those people, a natural insightful teacher. Explaining the benefits to the asanas for body and mind. I do believe one of the best yoga teachers in Brisbane.
Not your ordinary yoga teacher; Swami Shivjyoti is an amazing teacher. In a nutshell, where she goes, I will follow. A key lesson in yoga is non-attachment to people, to objects, to expectations…. but I feel connected to my wonderful teacher. My co-worker asked me recently “What makes a good yoga teacher” and Swami Shivjyoti came to mind immediately, she is terrific and hands down my favourite teacher. Swami Shivjyoti is technically excellent, understands each and every pose, the anatomy and how the body is connected to the mind and spirit. Experienced, Shivjyoti shares her knowledge freely with patience and kindness. It is not all about yoga poses and I have learned about this philosophy of yoga through her classes and also how to take the practice off the mat and into my daily life.
I have struggled with depression my whole life and through regular practice finally feel as though I can manage my depression and emotions, rather depression own me. I have met wonderful people through Shivjyoti’s classes and can’t highlight the benefits enough; builds mental health and resilience, physical strength and emotional well-being. I see the world through a different lens. Thank you Swami Shivjyoti for your lessons and commitment to all your students, you are terrific.

Connection, balance and service to others are Shivjyoti's forte and passion..! Shivjyoti's extensive experience in understanding the philosophical, energetic and physical elements of yoga are carefully woven into each class to deliver a truly authentic and personalised practice! Integral to her success as a much loved and respected teacher is a genuine commitment to the well-being of all students. With creatively sequenced asanas to emphasise alignment and energy flow, use of the breath to synchronise mind/body, and practical tips for daily life; her integrated approach mindfully guides a student back to their nature state of balance, connectedness and harmony. From arrival into the yoga space, through the richness of each moment, to the clarity and awareness received, Shivjyoti will inspire, energise and support you on your spiritual path.
I truly enjoy doing the yoga class with Shivjyoti. Her knowledge and experience of the holistic effect on the mind, body and spirit is wonderful. When she shares this with us during class it also helps me to understand my body more. When doing relaxation at the beginning of class it is the greatest relief when I hear her voice as the class begins. I know the class will be great and also know I will leave feeling much better. She has a beautiful gentle, calming energy about her and is always interested and aware that everyone in the class is ok and gaining all they can from their yoga experience. Can easily recommend Shivjyoti's classes - more people have benefited from her guidance than she may ever know.

Shivjyoti has been the most outstanding teacher we have ever encountered and we have felt privileged to be in her classes. At all times she gave of her very best with consideration and care to all the students in the class. She possesses a sound knowledge of the Yoga Asanas (we reached up to Level 3 under her direction) together with the Breathing Techniques and Meditation sessions Sadhvi Shivjyoti ensured our Yoga classes were both informative and uplifting. A rare talent in this competitive area where so many teachers just concentrate on the physical aspect. It is without hesitation that we recommend Sadhvi Shivjyoti’s Classes to all who are seeking to understand the essence of Yoga and in particular to those who wish to learn to teach Yoga. They could not be in better hands.
A large homestead and four luxurious, architect designed and award winning, cottages have been built hidden away on the side of a picturesque mountain deep in the rainforest. The exteriors of the cottages are made of timber slabs, so they match the old farm buildings. However; they have all been built since 1994, and are sheer comfort inside. This is a wonderful environment to catch your breath, the only sound will be the bird calls and occasionally rain on the roof.
