We are so excited to be throwing open the farm gates and inviting you to retreat with us at Bower. Immerse in the beauty and serenity of our space and experience the wonders of yoga and meditation for a full day retreat.
Let us peel back the stress of daily life and reconnect you with yourself, nature, relaxation and guided yoga and meditation practice. With two different programs on offer, we have something to suit everyone.
Get set for guided forest walks, yoga, meditation and delicious feasting treats to soothe your soul and leave you feeling centred and inspired.
Nestled in the Gold Coast Hinterland on the border between Queensland and New South Wales in Natural Bridge, The Bower Estate is surrounded by some of Queensland’s most stunning National Parks, making it the perfect destination to reset your mind and body.
Led by Doreena Scales, Lead Yogi at Peace Yoga in Burleigh Heads, join us for an opportunity to enjoy the tranquil beauty and serenity of the rainforest, allowing nature to do what it does best.... Heal.
Modern daily life with all its hustle and bustle, noise and nonsense can sometimes leave very little time and space for quiet reflection and true stillness, and this is where your peace resides.
You will enjoy the sensation of your body relaxing and detoxing, your face softening as your breath calms and your movements become slower and more graceful.
With two different programs on offer, whether you are a regular yogi, or are seeking to calm the mind, quieten anxiety and de-escalate stress, you will find fulfillment in one of our Retreat programs.
Retreat Day 1: Saturday 15th May
Immersive Yoga, Balance and Flow
For those who are familiar with yoga and would like the opportunity to learn and practise several techniques throughout the day and immerse in a rich workshop exploring ayurvedic principles to understand your body and achieve balance in your life.
Retreat Day 2: Sunday 16th May
Unwind and Reconnect With Self
For those who are seeking a gentle day of retreat with hatha yoga and meditation. Learn about Pranayama and self mastery under the expert guidance of Doreena Scales and take a sense of stillness home with you.
Both retreat options incorporate our incredible environment and lush food to indulge in a day of absolute serenity. Join us for:
forest bathing (rainforest immersion as opposed to swimming - in silence we grow. In stillness, we heal)
a delicious and healthy lunchtime feast
Juices, teas and refreshments throughout your retreat
