SunYoga Retreats with Claire

Tension is who you think you should be.  Relaxation is who you are.
~ Chinese Proverb

A retreat is a wonderful opportunity to step away from your usual habits and commitments and renew your relationship with YOU.  This stepping away and surrendering yourself into the nourishing rhythm of a retreat gives you space to focus, listen, reflect and re-establish your path and purpose.  In the company of like minded souls, and nurtured by delicious food and Nature, you can rest deeply and immerse more fully in the illuminating light of SunYoga.

"It was such a liberating experience to leave all family & friends behind and arrive at the yoga retreat unencumbered by anyone else's inhibitions, fears or prejudice.  To only need to care for myself, meet other participants and embrace all the wonderful experiences that Claire had planned for us... I feel happy, enlightened and well! Thanks Claire!"  Irene Ha

2017 Clearview Weekend
Mountain Yoga Retreats
King Parrot Valley, VIC

Winter Solstice - Deep Rest, Deep Renewal
June 23rd to 25th, 2017

This retreat coincides with the powerful energy of the winter solstice, marking the shortest day and longest night. We tend to power on right through these low energy months, forgetting that as creatures of nature, we too are affected by the energetic ebb and flow of natural cycles. This powering on takes its toll, bringing exhaustion and discontent.

The winter solstice is a great time to take stock, letting go of what no longer serves you and inviting in what you would like to grow afresh. The weekend’s yoga explorations will facilitate this process, working slowly and simply. All of the activities - gentle asana, breath work, yoga massage, meditation and deliciously long relaxations - will invite you to settle, listen, inquire and rest deeply. Our weekend will culminate with a special solstice ritual to honour this annual turning point and prepare you to embrace the returning of light with renewed clarity and purpose.

"After doing SunYoga classes for many, many years and watching others go off on retreat, I finally took the plunge and came along to this lovely, relaxing, yet energising 6 days of yoga, swimming, laughter and joy. Sanctuary Retreat is a lovely environment and Claire's classes are so well taliored to the group and the environment.  I just loved it!" Sarah H
