About this trip

Forget the past 2 years, start 2022 feeling Replenished. Its been tough for sure and we are really feeling the need to Rest our Minds ~ Relax our Bodies ~ Replenish Our Souls. As Vibrant Women have created the ultimate nourishing retreat, full of slow and healing practices, foods and activities so you can feel like a New You in 2022.


The FUNdamentals


REST

Lets start with the environment, Amara Retreat Centre is located on 44 acres of land, has a rock balancing and Buddha garden, woodland trails, nature walks, 4000sqm swimming hole with floating pontoon, fire pit, swimming pool, sauna, yoga shala and much more ..... Its quite, really quiet and peaceful and this is where we begin. Its also very beautiful. Being surrounded by nature is so healing on all levels and as you don't have to do anything you don't want to, you can totally slow down. We will focus on the elements that create a restful sleep and incorporate new patterns and rituals so we awaken from our slumber refreshed. Enjoy serene sound healings and guided meditations, disengage your mind and find peace. 


RELAX

Our days will start with gentle movement practices, meditations or bushwalks. We will take time to consciously relax our bodies though massage and restorative yoga. Our afternoons are for naps and swimming and softening our bodies in the steam room. Evenings around the fire pit, star gazing and creating connections to ourselves and others. 


REPLENISH

Over the course of this retreat we are here to nurture you. You will be nourished by chief nourisher and nutritional medicine practitioner Leanne, with delicious sustainable meals.


With the support of a group of like minded women you will find new or reinforce old ways to bring awareness to your everyday endeavours. Through workshops, meditations, movement, art, talking and sharing we will slowly bring new presence to life in the way we walk, feel, talk, move, love and experience life. 

Imagine ............

Waking up for five gorgeous mornings in the stunning Sunshine Coast Hinterland to the sound of birds and nothing else. 

Moving your body in ways that are gentle and create a deep sense of release and relaxation so you sleep deeply.

Eat delicious meals prepared lovingly just for you, around a table filled with new friends seeking the same as you, to feel connected and replenished. 

Laugh, cry and experience the joy that comes from being with other women in this special space of retreat. 

Engage in meaningful classes, workshops and activities to educate and enliven you. 

Quieten your mind, there is nowhere else you have to be and nothing else you have to do, just be here now. 

Connecting with your inner self, and your heart, letting a little bit of joy float around inside you.

Being inspired by nature. 

Becoming more YOU in 2022 as you become more aligned in all that you do. 

Feel replenished and excited about the future. 

Enjoy some real “me” time!

Who is this retreat for

Anyone who is craving, rest and relaxation and to fill their cup. Women who are depleted or just want to replenish at the start of the new year. 

Who this retreat is NOT for

Unfortunately this retreat is not for women who have had a recent trauma. Those experiencing grief or PTSD would better benefit from one on one support and perhaps not a group retreat. This retreat will not solve serious insomnia issues, its focus is on learning and understanding the art and science of rest and relaxation.

l have travelled with Tammie on many retreats: Bali, Fiji, Vanuatu, Awaba, Mount Alford and Port Douglas. Each retreat is a different experience with the same amount of care taken to ensure you feel safe and well catered for. There is always the right amount of adventure, local experiences and down time. The camaraderie between the women is warm and often hilarious. Tammie's organisational skills and attention to detail are smooth and seamless, which make for a most enjoyable experience. Western Australia here I come. Cheryl
