At the Sanctuary your time will be filled with different aspects of yoga, meditation, intentional workshops and wisdom teachings. You will nourish your body with delicious vegetarian (mainly vegan) cuisine, and enjoy our exclusive facilities including heated pool, ice bath, sauna, scrub, gazebo, cave & bushwalking all inclusive.

The property is situated at the top of sacred Aboriginal land of the Woronora valley with distant and expansive valley views. In addition to the expansive valley views, there is also many bushwalking tracks & a river where you can go canoeing only 25 minutes walk. 

Below the property there even is your own meditation cave to return back to stillness & connect within. 

There are plenty of nature walking opportunities & a hammock just outside the property, and  through the Woronora Valley and beautiful Camp Wannawong you may spot wallabies, bird, deer & possum.

A private Sanctuary all to yourself (no other guests will be here) so you can truly return home to yourself.

Teaching Specialties

A compassionate yet real space where you feel held, loved, accepted & elevated. You will feel poked, provoked & then lifted up. My goal is to leave every person I meet in an elevated state seeing the soul that is inside so you are activated to step into your higher self.

What are your favorite Retreat Venues around the world?

Ubud Yoga Centre in Bali. I had the privilege of teaching there for a couple of years and leading retreats. I loved the family feel, the international audience & a gorgeous view of the valley.

What’s your personal definition of what it means to thrive?

Someone who is unapologetically themselves, someone who doesn’t wait to have the results in order to give them permission to act. Leaders take the action to move them forward to get thriving results.

Who do you look up to ? Who has helped you the most along your teacher / retreat leader journey?

Guru Jagat from Rama Institute For Applied Yogic Sciences. I had had the honour of teaching on their platform & I look to them for guidance as they are true practitioners holding the Kundalini Lineage.
