Breathe Yoga Retreat

Join registered psychologist and yoga teacher Shona Sim and clinical psychologist and yoga teacher Victoria Kasunic from The Love of Yoga for a weekend of gentle yoga for those working in the helping professions e.g. psychology, psychiatry, case management, counselling, social work, medicine and occupational therapy. Our aim is to give you a supported space to rejuvenate your mind and body from the difficult work that you do and to help you prioritise your self care and be looked after for a few days. We ask that you plan to arrive at 3pm to settle in before the program begins at 4pm – 4:30pm. Over the weekend you will receive the following;

  • Rejuvenate your sense of wellbeing and reset your system
  • Experience yoga practices to regulate the nervous system that you can use with your clients
  • Learn about the relationship between the breath and stress
  • Renew your energy for client work, reduce burnout and compassion fatigue and leave feeling restored

The retreat is suitable for everyone as there is no yoga experience required and is accessible to all levels of ability. Attendance may contribute to CPD points if required.

Retreat Includes:

  • 2 nights accommodation with private ensuite at the stunning Jack’s Corner Retreat in Kangaroo Valley
  • 3 days of delicious meals and snacks to replenish your body
