Recently I attended my first yoga retreat with Jane … I was a little hesitant to go but when I got there it was definitely the best decision… Do yoga was just fabulous so calming and soothing and a wonderful time spent with some really lovely ladies … fun chats, some games and just a nice getaway from the hustle and bustle of life, with a bit of free time thrown in it was really relaxing … I can truly say this experience has been incredible and I look forward to doing this again. Thank you so much Jane you are a beautiful soul xxx I have learned so much and taken so much away … Namaste

Jane is a gorgeous human and Yoga Teacher – I just went to the Yoga Retreat at Tinaroo and it was two days of Gentle but deep Yoga – breathing, drawing, Yoga Nidras, Om-ing and sound Journeying, just what I needed. Thank you Jane for your wisdom and experience- I absolutely adore you as a teacher and love doing Yoga with you.

Gentle, cleansing retreats that realign the body and mind. Jane’s retreats are very accessible, no matter your level of experience. She is very warm and welcoming.

Jane Bevan’s yoga retreats have become a welcome part of my mental health maintenance. Not only do they provide the traditional yoga practices with chanting & meditation but they also incorporate plenty of discussion & debriefing in a supportive & empathic environment. More recently Jane has added some creative art activities which are another vehicle for self expression. The final ingredient is plenty of laughter which combined with the most delicious & innovative cuisine in the most idyllic setting makes for a perfect retreat. Congratulations to Jane for making these experiences so rejuvenating. Always highly recommended!

The yoga retreat was beautiful and magical. Magical location, beautiful yoga teacher, magical food ( seriously magical!) and beautiful group of women to share my experience with. I look forward to my next retreat that I can share with likeminded people. Thank you Jane you are a gift. Thank you for sharing some of your knowledge, I look forward to learning more from you in the future.

Once again a beautiful retreat with a beautiful soul. She shows everyone that there is more to yoga than just movement. The mindful artwork, meditation and chanting are wonderful aspects to add to our yoga practice. The welcoming space also leads to some wonderful discussions, in-depth conversations in a safe space with people you have only just met – but it feels completely natural. On top of that the food is amazing, and the newly refurbished accommodation is very relaxing. I eagerly look forward to my next retreat.

I recently attended a weekend yoga retreat co-hosted by Jane. Held amidst a tranquil rainforest setting, it was exactly what I needed to recharge and find my self again. Jane is a wonderful yoga teacher who exudes an aura of kindness, peacefulness and wisdom. Jane’s sessions were a combination of poses, movements, chanting and meditation which left me feeling peaceful, relaxed, yet energised.  The retreat provided the perfect grounding, healing, teachings and motivation that I needed to get back on my path to better health and happiness. I am grateful for your time and energy you gave to us Jane, and I would thoroughly recommend to everyone! Thank you.

Jane’s yoga retreat at Sanctuary Retreat Mission Beach was a wonderful experience. I am not as regular as I would like with my yoga practice and worried how I would handle 4 days of yoga, but Jane’s yoga style has a beautiful flow allowing you to determine your own pace. The meditation and education parts of the weekend were very informative and I learnt a lot.

The camaraderie of the group was also an important part of the retreat. I feel like we all went on a journey and came out stronger and more at peace on the other side. On top of that the location was beautiful (I enjoyed my outdoor shower – very refreshing!) and the food was some of the best I’ve eaten. Thank you Jane for giving me the opportunity to be part of this life-affirming experience. Namaste 😊


What a fantastic weekend Yoga retreat with Jane at the beautiful Sanctuary Lodge in Mission beach! A clever and gentle balance between relaxation, deep body and mind work, good company, amazing vegetarian food and beautiful surroundings. The perfect formula to a much appreciated weekend retreat!

Thank you and I look forward to next years retreat!


I expected to attend Jane’s retreat to get some relaxation time and healing for the mind and body.  I achieved this and so much more.  I met some wonderful people and had many sessions that inspired and crystalized what is important in life.  It opened my mind to so many possibilities.  Jane provided gentle guidance, understanding plus yoga that suited many different levels.  And what amazing food.  Thankyou.
