Give some love to those tired bodies with a ‘Snowga’ retreat
FALLS CREEK’S Trackers Mountain Lodge will host its first “Snowga” Retreat this September which will enable skiers and snowboarders to give some love to their tired bodies.
The five day retreat allows guests to combine skiing, boarding and yoga in the one holiday.
The day will start with a two-hour yoga session after which participants have the day to ski the mountain, explore the picturesque village, treat themselves to an in-house massage, relax in the spa and sauna or simply unwind fireside at the lodge.
After an action-packed day on the snow there is a nightly restorative Yin Session aimed at releasing ski fatigued muscles before guests enjoy dinner in the award winning in house restaurant.
Facilitating the retreat are Kate Taylor and Donna Buchanan from the Yoga Vine, a boutique urban studio based in the heart of Perth. The Yoga Vine offers a range of yoga styles and supportive practices including Vinyasa, Yin, Myofascial release and Pilates.
Kate and Donna run workshops as well as local and international yoga retreats and have facilitated programs in the beautiful southwest of Western Australia, Lembongen, Thailand and Morocco.
This September they will be taking their retreat from the coast to the snow for the first time.
With a combined 30 years practice and 25 years teaching experience between them, Kate and Donna bring a fresh, creative and playful ap- proach to their classes, aiming to make Yoga beneficial and enjoyable to a broad range of practitioners from beginners through to experienced.
On the last day of the retreat guests are invited to join in an optional aerial silks class led by Sunshine Coast Aerial artist Josie Torrisi.
