This is your opportunity to spend a weekend of seclusion, wellness, and much needed time for yourself! Mount Glorious Retreat is set amidst one hundred acres of lush gardens, and is bordered by rainforest and waterfalls. Enjoy this personalized getaway with deeply rejuvenating yoga classes outdoors, sunrise and sunset meditations, healing Ayurvedic cuisine, cooking demonstrations, scenic rainforest walks, yoga Nidra, inspiring discussions, and very comfortable accommodation.
The four cottages and the modern country homestead are spread out with plenty of space to sit quietly and enjoy the surrounds. You can choose to stay in a twin shared room, a private double room with a queen size bed, or in a double room with a queen size bed and en-suite bathroom.
The rainforest country homestead is a great healing retreat featuring four comfortable rooms. It has a large open kitchen, perfect for the workshop and vegetarian cooking demonstrations, and three lounge areas with open fireplaces.
The cottages are unique and in harmony with the natural surrounds, featuring lots of timber. They are fully self-contained and equipped with everything you will need for a home away from home. Cozy fireplaces and some magnificent views are also present.
The yoga is restorative, healing, and deeply rejuvenating, and the asanas are presented in a sequence, flowing one to the next. The practice focuses on aligning one’s breath and spiritual intention with movement.
Whether you are a beginner or an experienced yogi, the class will welcome you, and is open to practitioners of all levels. The classes present classical yoga teachings relevant to one’s life on and off the mat, supported by breath awareness, flowing sequences, alignment, relaxation, and meditation.
With one on one care and attention, this retreat is personalized and comes with the opportunity for individual guidance if you choose. Privacy, tranquility, and relaxation are hallmarks of this beautiful and remote location. Mount Glorious Retreat boasts an ideal opportunity to enjoy a variety of short or extended walks amidst the magnificent rainforest. All so that you can replenish your energy, infuse fresh vibrancy, and return home relaxed, refreshed, and healthier.
Meditation at the time of the full moon is said to confer the same benefits as a whole month's worth of meditation! Such is the powerful energy that streams through the body, assisting in the release of energy blockages, and resulting in a positive and natural flow of energy when properly directed.
When you meditate at the full moon time, you open to the powerful opportunity of receiving abundant clarity and fresh energy, thus assisting your spiritual path and a deeper experience of inner peace. True meditation offers a stillness which you can then carry throughout your life, and brings balance and harmony into all you do.
The moon connected with the waters is also influencing your body, emotions, and feelings which are often out of balance because of stressful everyday life. Through meditation you can harmonize and inwardly purify your mind and emotions, and can consciously change your habits. It's a rewarding and powerful practice.
You will enjoy a guided walk to hidden waterfalls within the surrounding national parks on your third day. There is also an opportunity for a rainforest walk on the second day, which you can take instead of the Ayurvedic cooking workshop. You will also be practicing yoga in various locations on the one hundred acre grounds daily.
