The daily yoga and mindfulness practice will focus on how to be fully in the present moment and experience all the subtleties that arise.

Our Cairns Mindfulness Retreat is designed to guide an absolute beginner, step-by-step into the practice. The approach being unique and life-applicable will also help broaden the foundations of the experienced practitioner, systematically unfolding for both the multitude of benefits from Mindfulness practice.

Your stay at Thala Beach Resort will allow for plenty of downtime, long walks on the beach, a swim in the ocean or one of the pools to bask in the natural beauty and integrate the inner work.

In addition to the mindfulness and yoga we will take part in a Southeast Asian-style cooking class. Learn how to make a selection of Asian-inspired dishes, under the watchful eye of a professional chef, where your culinary skills will be enhanced and your taste buds satisfied with what you create.

Our Cairns Mindfulness Retreat at Thala Beach will help you take the practice of mindfulness into the outside world.


Based in Cairns, Spiritual Journeys is a part of No Limit Adventures. After many years of journeying to different parts of the world and engaging in various activities it was time to turn our attention inwards and embark on the journey of spiritual self-discovery. Having been on the spiritual path for many years we agree that this is the most rewarding adventure one can undertake. Whether through shamanic journeys, mindfulness and yoga retreats, wellness or spiritual holidays this road leads to healing and finding the essence of who you are. 



About The Host

Mindfulness & Yoga: Han Wee Tan

Mindfulness & Yoga: Han Wee Tan

Having always had a keen interest in philosophy and the esoteric, Han underwent teacher training with a yoga ashram for 2 years before living in that ashram for another two and a half years, developing himself individually and as a teacher. He delivered numerous courses, workshops and retreats during his time there and, most notably, had been teaching and coordinating the ashram’s teacher training program.

The ashram drew many like-minded people to it, providing Han with the opportunity to meet and learn from many other acclaimed meditation teachers. These interactions would lead to a deepened understanding of the science behind mindfulness along with the various techniques applied. He has since developed and delivered a multitude of Mindfulness workshops and courses in Australia for a wide range of participants along with specialised workshops to allied health and mental health professionals. Mindfulness has become such an important and beneficial way of life for him and is something he continues to share passionately with others for their wellbeing. His approach to the practices are light-hearted and is known for his capacity to deliver complex concepts in an accessible manner. For him, the practices are a way of thinking and living rather than just a band aid for life.

Thai Cooking Class

Alan & Roberta Dana

Enjoy a fun interactive cooking class in our open plan home – a spacious kitchen surrounded by lush gardens where we grow as many organic ingredients as we can to use in the kitchen. Paw Paw, kaffir lime, thai coriander, eggplant, tomatoes, lemon grass, basil, mint are some of our crops and all included in our menu today.

The cooking experience is not only about learning how to be mindful of what we cook and eat, but also learning about the abundance of produce that Tropical North Queensland has to offer and how much fun it can be to grow and cook your own food.
