This retreat is focused on Rest, Rejuvenation and Self Discovery
Join us in the secluded hideaway nestled amongst the rolling green hills and blue coastal waters of Gerringong, located just over an hour south of Sydney NSW, as we look within and identify who we are, find balance through movement, and plug into a current of joy so deep and strong it flows to everyone around you.
Approaching the country side of Gerringong, a wave of serenity will wash over you, as you start to breathe the clean country air and soak in the simplicity of nature where your eye is drawn to livestock roaming the endless green paddocks, where it’s so peaceful the only thing you can hear is your own heartbeat.
Working your way through this undulating landscape, and slightly out of town, you’ll find a turn off and continue winding through the grasslands until you reach a set of gates where you arrive at a hidden gem called Ocean Farm. Here you immediately sense, this is where life stops and the retreat starts.
From the moment you walk through the massive timber doors to your home for the weekend, you know you’ve stepped into some place special. You remove your shoes, leave your ego at the door, and maintain this, as our sacred place of nurturing and healing. You are welcomed in with a refreshing drink, as you inhale deeply, absorbing the serenity and peace that already envelopes you.
Words cannot describe or pictures adequately depict the beauty and the “feel’ of this luxurious and special place that provides so many ways to feel nurtured. It truly is amazing.
In summer enjoy a swim in the incredible infinity pool, or lounge on the deck chairs with a cool drink. Take a nap on one of the sunbeds. In winter find yourself wrapped up toasty warm in front of the amazing open wood fire place whilst sipping on a warm beverage of your choice. Explore the uniqueness of this eco-friendly homestead situated on 320 acres of rainforest and grazing areas by wandering through one of the long grass scenic trails the property has to offer. Whichever direction you take is entirely up to you. One path will lead you to the neighbouring town of Kiama where you can relax over a barista style coffee, or the other way will take you down to the local beach of Werri, where you can take a quick dip or catch some waves. Snuggle up on a cosy sofa with a good book. Relax, mingle with guests, listen to music, journal, or practice your new found love of meditation mantras. Sit, chillout and watch the world go by on the huge bay window seat within the living area. No retreat would be complete without a blissful 90 minutes pamper package where you get to choose between either a remedial or kahuna massage, private yoga where you can work on those head stands or private meditation or hypnosis session. If you prefer something a little more adventurous you can opt instead for a 2 hour horse ride along the beach with a picnic lunch. Please note this option will have an extra charge, requires a small amount of riding experience and is available on a low tide.
Relax and Unwind
Enjoy your 3 daily gourmet meals outside on the deck taking in the full advantage of the ocean vistas or in the combined open kitchen dining, where you can observe your private chef, Karina Shepherd from Dandelion & Mallow work her magic. Gerringong is renown for its fertile rich soils producing the highest quality of nutrition dense crops,and Karina has lived in the area for 25 years. She has a wealth of knowledge to share with you about the local farmers and where she source’s the organic produce from, all whilst taking in the breathtaking scenery any way you turn from one of the many floors to ceiling windows that surround this homestead.

Evening Meditations under the stars
What’s on offer
Join us in this positive space as we give you your time back, and allow you to appreciate and be appreciated. Here we will explore the gift of gratitude and how important it is to continually be grateful for all we have.
Ceasing the inner critic
Mindfulness is the psychological process of bringing one’s attention to experiences occurring in the present moment, which can develop through the practice of Meditation. Learn the art of mindfulness in this safe and nurturing setting so you will be equipped with tools to practice daily once you return home.
Vinyassa and Yin/Yang Yoga workshops
In this supportive encouraging setting, you will have the opportunity to go deeper into the practice of yoga. Do you ever wonder if you are doing a pose correctly? Learn alignment that works for your body. Enjoy morning energising yoga and afternoon restorative classes. All classes focus on foundational yoga, alignment, core and functional movement, including healing breathe work. This ancient practice of asanas will help you overcome difficult circumstances or challenges you may be facing and learn to release and let go on your mat.
Experience the secrets of Hypnosis. Here we will unlock the mind of limiting beliefs by exploring the mystic of the subconscious mind and how Hypnosis really works. We will address all the areas of our lives in which it can help us improve and no we won’t have you ‘making like chickens’. We grow what we continually think about, like seeds being planted in fertile soil, which then sprout and grow high. So here we will learn how to be mindful of our thoughts on a continual basis. What you continually think about establishes new connections in the subconscious and becomes charged with manifesting power. You will also be given discounted sessions for after the event to further implement the work and keep up momentum.
With fun and ease, we’ll explore ways to adapt these new lifestyle tools into your everyday existence

Enjoy a light yoga and breath work session with Meagan, who brings her extensive experience and passion for teaching the art of slowing down to find your inner connection and leave the outside world behind.

Now that your completely wound down there’s an opportunity to finish off your first evening with a cup of herbal tea.
Begin your day with a breathtaking sunrise meditation class.
Here you will have the chance to witness first hand the amazing colour show as the sun rises over the ocean and rolling hills that connect you to nature and fill your soul, right at your doorstep.
Enjoy a warm cup of tea, and a snack if you like, as you get ready for our invigorating Vinyassa yoga class. Practice will be tailored to meet the needs of the class, with options given for those seeking more intensity and for those seeking more balance. Or you may just choose to have that ‘sleep-in’ that always seems to escape you.
A blissful breakfast will be served buffet style for you to enjoy overlooking the pool.
As the day warms up there will be a period of “free-time’ where you will get to experience your luxurious 90 mins pamper option and do whatever you feel like,whether it be lazing around the infinity pool in summer or log fire in winter which combined with the views will take you’re breathe away or partaking in the more energetic option of the coastal walk into town with your chance of spotting sea eagles, whales or even the resident emu along the way. The local train comes running through the mountain at the bottom of the hill a couple of times a day adding to this already picturesque location. We encourage you to honour the practice of mouna within this period, which is sanskrit for silence. For it is within the silence that we can fully find our inner space.
A share style lunch will be served in the middle of your free time period so be sure to confirm the actual time at breakfast as this is not something to be missed.
An afternoon grounding Yin yoga class will soothe and release tension from the body. All classes will focus on breath-work, alignment that works for your body, and some aspect of guided healing meditation. Due to the boutique nature of our accommodation this retreat will be intimate, with time for individual attention for hands on adjustment and questions during practice, giving you the opportunity to improve your personal practice.
After dinner, time will be set aside to give you an opportunity to share with your fellow yogis and prepare yourself for a meaningful releasing ceremony listening to mantras while star gazing and completely letting go under the night sky
If Easy like Sunday morning is your option we look forward to seeing you at breakfast. And for the early rises we have breath taking sunrise yoga/meditation sessions on the deck ready to go, where you will be most likely joined by a few of the friendly young resident cows and horses which are always curious to meet new visitors.
After breakfast final pamper sessions will be provided along with more free time to soak up your rural oasis as we pack up our belongings.
Hypnosis is one of the most powerful ways to make rapid changes in your life. Today we have allocated time for a group hypnosis session which we encourage you to join. The point of hypnosis is to give yourself an added boost in a certain area you might need help with and get deeper into the subconscious mind.
