One Day Retreat - Unplug and Unwind with Gwen

Join us at Nannup Hideaway Spa and Retreat for Nourishment and Balance Retreat. This 1 day retreat is an opportunity to understand the elements that are affecting you. Come and explore the concept of Ayurvedic - The Knowledge of Life, as it will all make sense to why you are feeling imbalance. Gwen will share ideal diets and yoga practices for each constitution.

Participants have the option book for a massage before or after the retreat (by appointment only) or stay overnight. 

This Is For You

If you are feeling stuck, slipping into a lethargic state, or irritable, and quick to anger or difficulty in feeling settled and getting overwhelmed. We hope you will gain better understanding of food, those that will bring balance to your inherent relationship to nature or cause aggravation. We invite everyone who seeks to connect to the rhythm of the natural world through this nourishing paradigm of wellness

Central Theme of the Retreat

Nourishment and Balance is the theme of the retreat - An opportunity to use winter’s introspective energy, to dive deep to gain clarity and insight to positive health and wellness. In a deeply reflective yet rejuvenating practice will restore an overall sense of vibrancy and vitality and help to balance the body.

All Levels of Yoga Experience Welcome

Both beginners and more advance yogis are very welcome. This 1 day retreat has been designed to accommodate different levels of experience for yoga, and the poses will be adapted for that. You will enjoy the experience and will be part of a group of participants who will be attending for many different reasons. This is a wonderful chance for self care and rejuvenate. 

Serene Location

Nannup Hideway is 45mins from Busselton, 60mins from Pemberton and 90mins from Margaret River. It is a treat on its own driving up the hill through the massive pine tree growth. It is indeed hideaway! situated on the top of the hill away from the hustle and bustle of life. I am truly thankful to be able to hold Re-connecting Body Mind and Spirit Weekend Retreat here recently. Being at the top of the hill was somewhat aligned with the teachings of Space that was covered in one of the key points on Why Spirit Matters. The whole atmosphere brought out a euphoric sense of freedom. Last but not least, the yoga space is again spacious and beautiful overlooking the hills and forests along two sides of the room. 

The Food

The food menu is based on the concept of Ayurveda. 

Passionate and Heartfelt Host

Leisa Harding is the owner of Nannup Hideaway. It has been such an amazing experience working with Leisa. I especially love the trust that she had, which showed her big, open heart. Her assistance with the space setting, and with the food, that was Japanese concept which was so new to her, she did it brilliantly. Leisa is very cooperative and tries her best in what ever she does. 

Why I’m Doing This

It was never about ‘teaching’ because I know what is best, or for the sake of regurgitating information. It has always been how relevant I can be for every individual’s path and physical challenges. Unlike a weekly yoga class, this weekend retreat has given me the opportunity to provide a whole picture of a fulfilling and harmonious life to participants. The key points I share during class are from my years of teaching yoga, and experiences from traditional practices while living in Japan, travels to India and Nepal.
