The Women's Summer Retreat is the most beautiful way for women to gather, share, connect and bond. It is our time to rest, restore, reboot and thank ourselves for the busy year just gone and prepare for the one ahead. Our time to spend on ourselves, with ourselves, for ourselves, walking, talking, singing, dancing, eating, laughing, crying and being with other women. Our time - that one precious thing that continues to elude us - to be all for ourselves.

Every year a small group of women gather in a beautiful setting, with beautiful surroundings and offer themselves. They share when they need, they take what they need, they give if they need, and leave feeling lighter, open and prosperous.

Lake Perseverance Recreation Centre is a peaceful, private bush retreat located on 4.6ha of land on the foreshores of Lake Perseverance, 8km from Crows Nest and 53km north of Toowoomba. Each Cabin will be home to 2 to 4 Ladies (single rooms available upon request, pricing will vary) and boasts airconditioning, private bathroom & balcony with the entire centre being accessible by an undercover timber walkway. Entrance gates are locked once all participants have arrived.


Arrival time is between 4 and 4.30pm Friday 15th January (no access will be available prior to 4pm). Once all participants have settled into their cabins, we will meet in the Yoga space for our opening circle to get to know one another. This will be followed by a gentle, nourishing Yin Yoga sequence and without any effort melt into Restoration and Meditation.

Dinner will be at 7.30pm, following dinner we will venture down to our open fire pit for a glass of wine and a girly catch up. (weather permitting). 

Treatments may be booked with Kris of an evening.


Wake at 6am and begin the day with an early morning bush walk to the lake and a salute to our magnificent sun to energise, revitalise and prepare (weather permitting).


Heading back up to our space for a nourishing breakfast followed by free time to rest, read, walk or write.

At 11am we again meet at the Yoga space for an energising Yang practice which will naturally morph into a relaxing Yin practice that will carry us right through to our planned 1pm feast. Following which is free time to read, walk, sleep.... whatever you desire.


Treatments may be booked with Kris during this time.

Meeting up again at the Yoga space at 5pm to "release negativity & tension" through a Kundalini group session using movement, mindfulness and breath to dive deep into blockages, doubts and negative self-talking. To walk away with the freedom to say "no".


Dinner will follow at 7pm.

After dinner we will return to our fire pit for our fire meditation ritual and the release of that which no longer serves us from our previous group session as we bask in this newly found "Freedom".

Treatments may be booked with Kris of an evening.


Meet at our Yoga space at 7am for our final Yoga Practice, followed by a hearty brunch.


Shower and pack and return with your belongings to our Yoga space for a closing circle as we practice a "circle of prosperity" with our group.
