Now in its 7th consecutive year, this Canberra-grown, one-day mini Yoga retreat is the perfect opportunity to step away from your hectic every day and reinvigorate your mind, body and spirit!
Set at Canberra’s most scenic and spectacular waterfront location, the beautiful Boathouse by the Lake, the Yoga Big Day Out is the perfect opportunity to experience all of the benefits of a yoga retreat without having to travel far from home.
Founder of the event Ramone Bisset from Wild Sage Wellbeing has brought together an international line up of performers and Yoga teachers to guide you through a day exploring Yoga, meditation and the foundations to living a healthy, happy life.
The day will feature internationally renowned traditional Japanese Bamboo Flute Player Riley Lee. Riley will be performing on the ‘Shakuhachi’ with highly accomplished local musician and classical guitarist Steve Allen. Riley and Steve will play alongside the gentle and meditative Yoga practices taught by Yoga Big Day Out founders Muriel and Ramone. Also joining the event is Canberra’s only certified Anusara Yoga Teacher Amanda Morley from Radiant Energy Yoga. Talented Yoga Medicine teacher and Yoga Anatomy expert Ariane McCormack from The Yoga Loft in Newcastle, who has recently returned from Washington DC is also making a special guest return to Canberra after five years away.
“The vision for the Yoga Big Day Out has always been to bring people together to dedicate some quality time to themselves, to deeply nourish themselves with healing food, help learn a little more about how yoga can help them live happier daily lives, and to enjoy some of the beautiful natural spaces in Canberra and it’s surrounds” says Ramone.
“We have a whole lot of Yoga-flavoured fun in a gorgeous location with like-minded souls! It might seem intimidating to think of doing yoga for a whole day but the day is designed so that you get plenty of breaks, lots of delicious sustenance and time to connect with other participants and make some new yogi friends!” Ramone adds.
The event is for anyone interested in Yoga! All ages, all ability levels and practitioners from all styles of yoga are welcomed to join the fun, with Ramone commenting that: “There are four practices, from four different styles of yoga taught by four teachers over the day. This gives you a great opportunity to try out new ways of approaching your practice and to learn new things! The morning practices are stronger and more workshop-based in style so you get active and learn at the same time. There’s a break for morning tea, and at least an hour to chill and enjoy relaxing by the lake or to sample the local wares on offer in our wellness showroom. After lunch, the practices are slower, more gentle and meditative in nature with an afternoon tea break in-between.”
“At the end of the day, you get to head home feeling relaxed, rejuvenated and aligned – with a bonus gift from Aveda Canberra to help ease you into your Sunday night at home!”
Yoga Big Day Out is on from 8.30-4pm on Sunday 18 March at The Boat House by the Lake in Grevillia Park.
