We hike through rugged bushland to a deserted beach, stopping to take in some of the best coastal scenery in the Australia.

We’ll take a short drive to meet our meet our yoga master – in a park if the weather is good or a studio if it’s not. She’ll get you stretched and centred and after an hour of meditative stress relief, you’ll feel like a brand-new person.
