A holistic style of yoga

Our yoga style is a combination of dynamic and static poses working to activate and energise the 7 chakras. The sequence of postures balances and clears your energy field creating stillness, positivity and inner peace. This unique yoga system will assist in the strengthening of both your core and back while stimulating the purification of your organs as well as harmonising the endocrine system and reducing both physiological and psychological tension.

This retreat is suitable for all levels and no previous experience in yoga or meditation is necessary.

The weekend will also feature a nutritious vegetarian menu.

The teachers

This retreat will be held by teachers Anthony O'Flynn and Nina Hansen. They have been holding retreats for over 13 years and have a combined teaching experience of over 27 years.

This is a wonderful retreat to deepen or begin your yoga experience with no mission possible asanas and progressive classes that are user friendly.

Tranquil location

The setting for this event is the tranquil Bribie Island, conveniently situated close to both Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast. The venue is located just minutes away from the beach.

The weekend will consist of sun salutations, yoga classes, mindfulness practices, meditations, insightful workshops, personal development exercises, connection and lots of free time to explore and relax in this natural paradise.

Personal transformation

A specific theme of this weekend retreat is personal transformation in the 21st century. This retreat will focus on evolution on the path and how practitioners can embrace life in the modern world from a yogic perspective. This will create an expanded vision and a new potential to experience the joy of life through the eyes of a yoga practitioner.

An additional theme of this weekend is to facilitate the connection between individuals from all backgrounds who share the common goal of inner peace and an inspired lifestyle.

Connect with other like-minded individuals and engage with a community that has a fresh, exciting perspective of the emerging of a new consciousness at this Queensland yoga retreat.

Teachers

Nina Hansen

Inspirational Speaker, Facilitator, Yoga & Meditation Teacher

Nina Hansen has walked the spiritual path for over 18 years. Nina's profound wisdom and serenity captivates participants at the numerous workshops, retreats and courses that she leads. Nina's spiritual dedication and loving nature can be felt during the various teachings she offers that are flavoured by her gentle and soft teaching style. Compassion and tolerance are intrinsic components in her ability to convey the message of yoga and spirituality in a modern and contemporary approach.

Originally Norwegian, after studying and living in England and travelling extensively, Nina now calls Australia home and prefers the pristine beaches and warmer sub-tropical climate of the Sunshine Coast. 

Nina has followed the Tantric path since 1999 and this focus is reflected in her teachings on Tantric sexuality, the awakening of the divine feminine and her skillful practice and transmission of the transforming practice of Tantric yoga. Nina’s path as a Tantric teacher is one of authenticity and integrity as she communicates this diverse and fulfilling path.

Nina embodies a sincere and mature attitude to genuine inner growth. This is reflected in her understanding that bringing spiritual practice into every moment of life by cultivating awareness is an essential quality to develop on the spiritual path. This ability to remain present is fundamental to expanding consciousness and is a constant reminder to embrace the journey of life and cherish each and every day.

As a truly gifted graphic designer, Nina runs her own thriving business – Nina Hansen Design where she uses her natural appreciation of aesthetics in a visual context. Nina has previously worked in some of the biggest and most successful design agencies around the world but now prefers the freedom and flexibility of her own business.  Nina completed her studies in Visual Communications and the History of Art and Design in England. Nina is also an enthusiastic dancer and revels in the glitz, energy and flow of all things Latin dance.

It is perhaps fitting that her travels to India marked the beginning of Nina’s spiritual path. Nina was fascinated with the richness of Indian philosophy, specifically Tantra and quickly became absorbed by metaphysical and esoteric teachings. Her strong background in art, creativity and design gave Nina a deep appreciation of spiritual art, architecture and esoteric symbolism, all of which have an important role in the spiritual tradition of India.

Nina followed the calling of her soul to embark on the spiritual journey and search for happiness and true inner peace. After this beginning Nina spent extended periods in both India and Thailand practicing and studying this path of wisdom.

Nina has realised that the relentless pursuit of happiness was at the heart of human existence and yet this happiness is always within. The contentment we are all searching for is a deep inner peace and Nina lives each day through the understanding that happiness is a choice and we are the ones responsible for making that choice in each and every moment.

After studying at university for six years and completing a Masters in Communications at Monash University in Melbourne, Anthony embarked on a global expedition travelling across the globe. Anthony’s life-long interest in mysticism dramatically intensified on a trip to India in 1999, where he began to practice yoga and meditation. This turning point led to a deeper spiritual integration and led to Anthony spending more than two years of his life in India. Anthony deeply immersed himself in the practice of yoga, meditation and studied numerous diverse paths and topics related to spirituality.

Anthony is also the Director of the Paradigm Shift Summit, which is a movement of socially and spiritually aware people who recognise that an awakening is occurring as humanity evolves to a higher more elevated level of consciousness. The Paradigm Shift movement is an expression of the goal of assisting humanity transform to a new level of awareness during this critical transition.

My first retreat – everything was most enjoyable and held my attention with the depth of knowledge and breadth of experience such that it was easy to stay ‘present’. The timetabling was an excellent mix of yoga, meditation, theory, and exercises. The food was awesome. Thank you.

Sarah K

Thank you for reminding me what is important in life and for providing a life transforming experience.

Karen

A great opportunity to have time to quiet my mind and set my direction for the year ahead. A truly inspiring weekend. Thank you.

Amy

On arrival to this retreat, I broke down in tears in my room. I felt overwhelmed and stressed about my day-to-day life. After my weekend of yoga, meditation, goal setting and assessing my values and goals, I’m ready to start over, fresh and be positive. Live in the moment. Thank you Anthony and Nina and all the wonderful people I’ve met this weekend.

Lisa

This weekend has provided me with a safe and warm environment to focus inwards, let go and be me. It’s helped me reconnect with who I am and what’s important to me. The yoga and meditations created stillness and an opportunity to focus inwards and I’m amazed at how much I actually enjoyed that. I’ve met some amazing people and relished the opportunity to connect with others with the same interest. It’s always lovely to hear about others’ journeys. It makes me realise I’m part of a much bigger picture.

Donna

I have never looked at yoga and never been away on my own. This has been such an amazing life experience for me, the food, and both of you are so passionate and incredible people.

Chris

I was very unsure of attending a retreat but the experience exceeded my expectations and I have an awareness of the path I am taking as I journey towards personal growth.

I came to the retreat because I wanted some time out for myself. 2014 is my year to make my life different, in order to make my life different, I had to start doing things differently. The yoga retreat was the first step in taking stock and looking within for a change. Anthony and Nina provided the perfect platform to facilitate the first of many personal firsts.

Bree

There is much more to this retreat than the fantastic food, the lovely people and the destress from everyday life. There is a glimpse of a deeper meaning to the way you live your life and how to enhance it through yoga practice.

Anna

Anthony & Nina promote a non-threatening environment that is full of thought provoking content that will have a profound effect on the way you approach life.
