KING ISLAND YOGA RETREAT
15 Mar - 18 Mar 2019 King Island, Tasmania, Australia
Immerse yourself in Yoga and Meditation amongst the rugged natural beauty of King Island!
Ever wanted to experience King Island? Well here’s your chance to discover and explore; shipwrecks, history, birdlife, stunning beaches and lighthouses, and of course, fresh local produce! A maximum of 10 participants ensure an intimate experience during your stay on the jewel of Bass Strait. Immerse yourself in twice daily Yoga and meditation classes, bask in sightseeing (we know the best and secret spots on the island!) and dine on delicious local cuisine. If you’re looking for a prissy retreat, maybe try somewhere else, but if you want a ‘pristine’ retreat – then King Island is your destination!
With an abundance of space and quietness on this peaceful paradise, you will also meet and greet the local folk. They are never in a hurry and always ready for a chat. Breath the freshest of air, look far out to sea into the ‘raging 40’s’ and experience a quietness beyond time. Take time off for personal reflection or be inspired by interaction with like-minded people. Leave feeling inspired, refreshed and equipped with new ways to bring balance into your heart and mind, and your home and work life.
You will be staying on the Eastern side of the Island in a small village called Naracoopa. Naracoopa is said to be the Riviera of the Island because it is always Sunny! Naracoopa is 25 minutes from the main town Currie. Accommodation will be self-contained cottages and all rooms have heating/cooling and their own bathrooms and kitchen facilities.
All food will be delicious and nutritious vegetarian cuisine. Any special dietary requirements can be catered for with prior notice. As well as main meals there will be snacks and hot beverages available throughout the day. On Day 2 of the retreat, we’ll visit the King Island Cheese Factory, where you can sample their deliciously-crafted cheese products and take home some supplies too!

An invigorating escape to a place whose remoteness defies the ease of the short flight it took us from Moorabbin. Jacqui and Shimon’s deep attachment to King Island was obvious from the great care they took in immersing us in the natural beauty of the places they love, while looking after our every comfort including delicious meals of local produce. Several weeks on, I continue to be amazed how often I reflect back on my experience of practicing yoga and meditation in this pristine environment – I wholeheartedly recommend a retreat with Jacqui and Shimon for the warmth and meticulous care they extend to their guests.
