Hooray! We have successfully survived another winter and come out the other side into a glorious spring. Although “survived” is a tad melodramatic given I live in Perth – where most people don’t even own a real winter jacket and the only gloves necessary are the ones for gardening or bike riding.
Nevertheless this year I took “spring cleaning” to a whole new level by heading down to Dunsborough for a weekend retreat of Yoga and Raw Food at Samudra.
Samudra is an absolutely amazing place. I can’t believe it has been there 10 years and this is the first time I have been there. Kicking myself, but I will be making up for it with regular visits. In fact if they had need for a resident photographer I would be moving, stat.
The gorgeous Lisa, Erin, Mike, Ben & team took care of US (yes, I convinced the husband to join me!) through a brilliant 2.5 days full of the most delicious food you can imagine (and it was all healthy!!), mornings of ashtanga yoga, yoga nidra in our evenings, guided pranayama and informative talks on food, sprouting, and gardening. I even joined Lisa on a bush walk and braved the very *fresh* (ie BRRRR!) Dunsborough water for a swim.
Pop in if you are in the area for a divine green smoothie from their cafe (which has a Kombi van in it!), or head down and make a weekend of it at one of their retreats. I have the ayurveda weekend in my sights. And if I can get the jaws theme out of my head I might even try the yoga & surf retreat… maybe…
PLUS you can hire Samudra for your wedding! You need to call me if you do 🙂
It was absolutely perfect timing for me to exhale…. before gearing up ready for an exciting wedding season ahead.
Thank you Samudra! You’ll see me again soon 🙂 xx
