How long has it been since you took some time out? Time away from the pressures of work, kids, and everyday life. Wouldn’t you just love the chance to get away from it all, to reconnect and reenergise?
For me, my weekly yoga practice is my little escape. It’s one hour when I tune into my body, focus on my breath and just let go of all the stress of the ‘real world’. If you’ve ever done yoga, you’ll know what I mean.
It has a way of making you feel more focussed, calm and energised and really aware of your body and mind.
Now, close your eyes and imagine an entire weekend that’s all about you and yoga. A chance to get away and focus on revitalising your inner energy in an idyllic seaside setting. Two whole nights and days where you can revel in that sense of connection between mind and body and just leave everything else behind.
Thanks to Walirryuna – Radiant Sun Yoga you can make this fantasy a reality. They are giving HerCanberra readers a chance to win a place at their Radiant Sun Yoga Retreat at Broulee on the South Coast from Friday 13 to Sunday 15 May.
All you have to do is answer a simple question: Why do you need to take a weekend out at Radiant Sun Yoga Retreat?

She did her teacher training in hatha and vinyasa flow yoga with Yoga Trinity.
Catherine created Radiant Sun Yoga retreats especially for busy women like you. They’re suitable for anyone with basic fitness and an interest in yoga, whether you’re a yoga regular or a complete beginner.
