A LIFE IN YOGA BEACH RETREAT with NICOLE WALSH & ROD GALBRAITH
Friday 2 August - Sunday 4 August 2019
We invite you to join us for a unique experience, a rejuvenating dive into living a life in yoga with InYoga co-owners and leading Sydney yoga teachers, Nicole Walsh & Rod Galbraith. This 2-night yoga retreat will indulge your senses while nourishing all levels of your being.
Retreat with us in our gorgeous Killcare beach house (1.5 hours drive north of Sydney) with sweeping panoramic ocean views, surrounded by national parks and an abundance of nature. Be nourished by daily yoga, meditation, bush walks, beach walks/swims, wellness workshops that bring ancient yogic wisdom to life; and healthy, seasonal organic vegetarian meals prepared with love in our state of the art kitchen.
Come away and be inspired, fill your yogic cup, rejuvenate your mind and body!
The Daily Flow:
Daily yoga and meditation practice - Our morning vinyasa flow yoga practices will awaken your body through rhythmic movement and alchemical blend of yoga asana, meditation and breath work. Afternoon practices will include soothing lunar flows and delicious yin, with a soundtrack of ocean waves and local kookaburras. Sunset meditations set the tone for balmy evenings of joyful sharing, or self-reflection.
Wellness workshops and discussions - Covering a range of themes, our open discussion sessions aim to encourage and support shared learning and inspiration in the profound and soulful journey of modern yogic living.
Nurture time - Deepen your connection to nature by exploring local bush tracks, beach walks, beach swims (weather dependant), and living in nature’s daily rhythms. There will be free time to wander, breath the fresh ocean air, gaze out to the horizon, or curl up with a book from our extensive yoga library.
Nourishment - More than just nutrition, true nourishment comes from sharing meals with a sense of gratitude and connection to the abundance provided by the earth. Daily whole food breakfasts, lunches and dinners will be prepared from fresh, seasonal, primarily organic produce, and are vegetarian and gluten-free. Dietary requirements can be catered for if we’re notified in advance.
Location of the retreat is Killcare, only 90 minutes drive away from the city. If you don't have transport, please let us know and we'll aim to organise a car-pool with a fellow retreater. Alternatively you may take a train to Woy Woy station on the Central Coast, and we'll collect you from there.
Arrival time on Friday is between 2pm and 3pm; departure time on Sunday is 2pm.
You'll be guests in our lush beach home, which we've lovingly set up for our guests to enjoy both simplicity and comfort, allowing you to relax fully and get the most out of your time with us. You have the choice between two styles of twin-share room - our standard bedrooms, or cute and cosy sleeping alcoves that are smaller in size but high on comfort. All bedrooms feature crisp linen, with cosy doonas and throws, and our standard rooms have both ceiling fans and reverse cycle air conditioning. All rooms have shared bathrooms. The house has plenty of chill-out space for you to unwind, while taking the scenic views of bush and beach, enjoying deliciously healthy meals and great company.
Our yoga room is fully equipped with mats, blocks, straps, bolsters, meditation cushions and blankets, no need to bring anything unless you prefer your own mat.

What our last retreaters said:
"I cannot recommend a Killcare retreat with Nicole and Rod highly enough. They are the most generous hosts in every way - from sharing yogic wisdom, providing guidance on teaching yoga, cooking the most delicious and nutritious meals, guided bush walks, beautiful yoga and meditations classes and great conversation! They create such a nurturing, restorative space, and the love that they put into everything really shines through. I came to the retreat quite worn out by Sydney life, and I left feeling rejuvenated, rested and re-inspired. Also the two gorgeous dogs stole my heart!" ~ Bernie

"From the moment you walk through the door of the InYoga beach house a transformation takes place. For the next 48 hours you have permission to let go and immerse yourself in yoga... heartfelt practices, phenomenal wholesome meals, luxurious lodgings and an amazing sangha. Nicole & Rod, you should be proud... you have yet again created an amazing space for teachers to rejuvenate and consolidate with effortless learnings. Will definitely be back. Thanks for sharing your home, your wisdom and your love." ~ Simonne
"A big thank you to Nicole and Rod for opening their home, hearts (and kitchen) up to us. It was all so casual, calm and relaxed and that’s how I came away from my weekend.
