23 Jan Movement, Mantra, Music – A retreat to cultivate your spirit
2019 promised to be one for the books – but has it been? Maybe more than ever, you need to spend some time at the tranquil Govinda Valley Retreat Centre, where you can go to unwind and escape at the first ever Movement, Mantra and Music Retreat with Adam Whiting.
This new year seemed to promise so much. For a lot of us, in some ways, we are still waiting for it to kick in. It’s already March and it feels like most of us already need a chance to come up for air.
Playfully coined Movement, Mantra and Music, you’ll spend the long weekend with likeminded people coming together to move, practice yoga, meditate and join in spirited kirtans and soft serenades in savasana. This is your chance to breathe, reset and realign.
Remember Adam Whiting? You know, that handsome, yoga-world-famous down-to-earth guy who used to playfully run around our studios, teaching with ease and laughter? That one. He’s back! But not for long. He’s coming to be with the Power Living Sydney tribe to host this one long weekend retreat and you don’t want to miss out.
What you can expect on retreat (Thursday 21 March – Sunday 24 March 2019)
- Twice daily yoga classes of both vinyasa and yin
- Daily meditation
- Evening kirtan concerts
Sounds pretty good, doesn’t it?
What people are saying:

You can easily access the retreat via train or car. A train from the CBD to Otford takes approximately 75 minutes and is a direct line.
