Come back to yourself, with deeply immersive yoga practice led by yoga master and yoga therapist Flo Fenton. Take this time to pause, reset your nervous system, reground your senses, and replenish your energy. Only when our own cup is full can we truly be of service to all those we love in life!
Within a stones throw of the healing vibrations and soothing sounds of beautiful Tallow Beach, Suffolk Park Hall is a quaint, timber floored community hall built by the community, for the community. It is where Flo teaches her regular classes, so all equipment is provided.
Accommodation is not included within the cost of the workshop. If you are coming from afar, make a weekend of it by staying in one of Suffolk Park’s beautiful beach side hotel’s or guest houses. Make sure you choose somewhere within a walk of Suffolk Park Community Hall unless bringing your car. Feel free to ask for advice on accommodation!
This is a boutique experience with a maximum number of 13 attendees. The intention is for it to be like a mini retreat-full of rest and replenishment but also the refreshment of connection to others on the same path, a serene environment, and delicious food!
For those staying Saturday night, a group dining experience will be arranged in Byron Bay!
Lunch provided Sunday at the beautiful Suffolk Park Hall.
This workshop would be useful for all practitioners and teachers alike to enhance both personal practice and teaching skills.

Ojas is the subtle essence of water. It is our store of vital reserves, the basis for physical and mental endurance. It is responsible for nourishing and grounding the development of our higher faculties. It is the juice of life!
When ojas is depleted, we are left vulnerable to the effects of grief, stress, illness, aging, and even premature death. In the ancient ayurvedic texts, it states that if our ojas is abundant, we can live happily for a hundred years.
When ojas is abundant, we are generous with our time and energy, are steady emotionally, and are resilient to stress. If things that are not so great happen, we can deal with it and move on, with the minimum of drama-and without prolonging the ‘pain’ of the event by worrying, or over-reacting.
There are several ways we can build good ojas; in our daily lives, having a clean and sattvic nutritious diet and avoiding stress are the key tools.
On this weekend, we will learn how to replenish our store of ojas by practicing deeply grounding, calming and replenishing yoga and meditation, and cultivating devotion (gratitude) for the things, places and people that support us in life.
