About The Retreat
Join Sarmarie not just for a retreat, but a 7-day practice intensive of Yoga Prati “Move Towards” a true opportunity to grow and connect to your individual Self.
During this Yoga Retreat Yogis will explore in depth what it is to Move Towards a Holistic Yoga Practice and how it relates to everyday life. We’ll explore practices weaving tradition and the individual together, we’ll look at ways to continually keep Yoga appropriate as well as fresh and alive.
I look forward to sharing what may cultivate a lasting practice that allows you to play in movement and pause in moments.
Please note that you do not need to be able to do advanced postures, things like headstands, balancing posture, etc, however we will explore them along the way. All are welcome!
To experience Yoga with breathtaking views is seriously the best! The retreat provides a supportive, safe and interactive environment to learn and explore.

“During my life, I have gained experience in the teachings of human consciousness. I believe I am a well-rounded person who creates purposeful space, I teach from a space of love, creativity, and play. As a teacher past and present my biggest contribution has been to hold space, in holding space I offer others to step in, whether working with 20 years old or 70, I am very comfortable to teach from a place that enables the individual to come into contact with Self. I am the founder of Gnarabup Yoga School in Margaret River and have worked in the leading Yoga Studios in Australia”. – Sarmarie

I think the one thing that captures me after every yoga experience with Sarmarie, is her ability to hold space. She just has this knack for making people feel welcome and comfortable. There is a lightheartedness that fills any space she holds. A room can be filled with students from ages 18 to 75, students who have never done yoga before to seasoned practitioners, students from all walks of life, and Sarmarie will see everyone, catering to individual needs while maintaining a collective energy within the room. Having spent the last few years teaching and working with Sarmarie in the same studio, I have watched her work with individuals in a way that shows her natural holistic approach to teaching. The vast variety of students in which Sarmarie navigates this practice of yoga with, is something I look up to. Whether it be in a dynamic Mysore room or a relaxing Yin Yoga class, Sarmarie’s delivery, attention to detail, student connection and big warm smile is what keeps students (myself included!) coming back.
