Santé Retreats

"A complete reset for the body, mind and soul"

Location

Sunshine Coast Hinterland Ananda Eco House

Our retreats are hosted at a boutique eco friendly venue in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland - Ananda Eco House. This space is a truly unique rainforest retreat based on half an acre of dense rainforest. Anandā Eco House is eco friendly and as off grid as possible, hosting solar power, rain water and a composting toilet. The jungle setting attracts birds, wildlife and other bugs which all add to the experience. As much as you feel like you're entering an rainforest oasis, Anandā is only 800m from the centre of the historic town of Montville and only 5 minute drive to some of the coasts best waterfalls, making it easy to explore during your stay.

Inclusions

What's included in your time with us? 

2 nights/3 days accommodation at Ananda Eco House

2 x buffet plant-based breakfasts + morning cleansing shots

2 x Plant-based group dinners

2 x Yoga Sessions with Shayelle

You will learn to drop the ego and step into humility.  Shayelle creates a unique style flow to encourage natural movement in the body, increase energy and reduce inflammation.  Her unique style of teaching allows you to connect with the present moment, exploring the depths of yourself as you gently improve your mobility and strength.  

 

1 x Cacao Ceremony Sound Healing Meditation

Ceremonial cacao can help you connect with your heart and be a gentle guide through transformational consciousness shifts. We will guide you through the ceremony and using the cacao to create a sacred intentional space in your mind and in your body.  Crystal Sound bowls will deepen your experience and allow you set your intentions for the practice,  re-balance your energy systems, open your heart chakra and connect with your higher self. 

1 x Morning group fitness class

You will work up a sweat in your natural surroundings guided by Brit and Shayelle. 

1 x day excursion to the beautiful local Waterfalls

Allowing you to connect to your Root Chakra and ground yourself in the beautiful energy of Gaia.  Our Root Chakra is responsible for our sense of security and safety and regularly exposing yourself to nature allows us to overcome challenges with ease, feel supported in our daily lives, safe in who we are and connected to the paths we walk. This will be followed by free time in the picturesque hinterland town of Maleny. 

2 hour plant based cooking class with Britney

Britney makes plant based cooking both delicious and doable.  You will learn the beauty of cooking from scratch allowing you to walk away from our retreat with a more sustainable and tasty approach to food  that will service your health and the health of our beautiful planet. 

1 x Guided icebath and breathwork session

You are encouraged to draw upon you inner resilience and the strength of the women around you in order to move beyond the discomfort and find peace through difficulty.  There are many moments in life wherein our conditions are not ideal and it is important we keep our cool during those moments and find our strength so that we can interact with our difficulties without negotiating our strength, resilience and spirit.  

1 x Welcome pack because everyone loves a goodie bag of sustainable Australian based pressies!
