Flo Fenton is one of Australia’s most highly regarded teachers, teacher trainers and yoga therapists. On this retreat, you will get the opportunity to learn the true essence of yoga life-style and practice from an expert in the field and from someone who truly lives yoga.
As always, Flo’s focus will be on paring back complicated and unnecessary parts of yoga practice to reveal the true foundation of each technique. This retreat offers a deep insight into yoga for all levels. Those who are experienced teachers regularly come to learn from Flo for fine tuning, to learn the latest teaching tools and tips, and to re-inspire their own practice and teaching, whilst those who are just starting out on their yoga journey will be led into the practice at a level that is appropriate and beneficial.
Program begins Sunday 8th September at 5.30pm with opening circle followed by welcome banquet and traditional dance performance. Program ends with closing circle and farewell banquet on the last evening, Friday September 13th -leave the next morning, Saturday 14th September.

7.20m-9.30/9.45am: Therapeutic Vinyasa style yoga Asana
Using a flowing, focused sequence of postures, we will address the fundemenatal asanas to build a deeper understanding of postural bio-mechanicss and learn to manage common areas of pain, tightness and weakness in the body. Though the practice is strength and fitness building, Flo creates a strong focus of awareness on the subtleties of the physical postures, core-strength, and the movement of the breath in the body. There will be alternatives given to those whose injuries or postural peculiarities prevent them from performing a posture with total comfort and safety.This practice will be of benefit to all, beginners to advanced students/teachers.
