– 3 nights accommodation.
– all yoga and related activities (including 6 yoga classes, 3 deep relaxation sessions, 3 related topic sessions including pranayama, meditation, chanting, mandala)
Take this opportunity to join me on retreat and to reconnect with the Essential you.  
Let me share with you the gifts of yoga through guiding you into a deepening awareness of the body, the breath and the mind.
Be nourished through  calm and rejuvenating yoga practices, deep relaxation, mantra chanting and meditation and some art activities.  Enjoy time for reflection stimulated through the discussion of some of the core philosophies of yoga. Connect with yourself and others in this peaceful environment. There will be adequate free time during the retreat to enjoy the beautiful rainforest and beach environment, to swim, walk and chill!! 
All the techniques of yoga practice are aimed at creating a deepening awareness and knowledge of the self – and through this allowing a space to develop whereby a state of calm, balance and sense of oneness is created.  

I am an accredited  IYTA teacher and YTA yoga therapist with over 20 years teaching experience, and I love creating the opportunity for my students of all ages and stages to feel inspired, revitalised and at ease.

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.
