You are warmly welcomed to the Upper Brookfield Yoga Shala to soften as you soak in the tranquility and beauty of bush, organic veggie garden, creek and wildlife.
The day retreats are offered as a sacred space and time for you to devote to yourself, to reconnect to your heart and immerse in body, breath and luscious natural surrounds. My heartfelt offering of yoga is intended to nourish, inspire, refresh and transform.
These retreats are suited to devoted yoginis (at any point on their yoga journey) yearning to take the time to dive deeper into themselves and the moment. We will have the time to slow down and journey deep within with like-hearted sisters. These retreats are open to 10 participants, creating an intimate and supportive atmosphere within which you can relax and connect.
The venue of these retreats in Brisbane’s western suburbs is truly paradise – surprisingly close to the city yet another world away! It is very easy to “drop in” here and to unplug from worldly responsibilities, giving yourself the opportunity to plug back into the Source, replenish and recharge.
We make the most of being in nature on these retreats, connecting our bare feet to the earth and drinking in the fresh air. We also have a beautiful indoor temple for meditation and ritual – Devi Mandir (the Goddess temple). If the weather is cold or rainy we have a beautiful Japanese-style indoor space with a fireplace which is very cosy!
Only a 30 minute drive from Brisbane’s CBD, come and be guided in your practice in this little piece of heaven. It is my intention that you leave feeling completely rejuvenated, refreshed, and re-inspired.

Upcoming Yoga Retreats
Here’s what others have shared about their experience:
Whatever you need – this woman will show you the way. Jasmine’s half-day retreat will cleave open your heart, ignite your passion, stir your soul, feast your senses then nourish you body & mind. I have often arrived flat, sad or frustrated then floated out energised, joyous and exhilarated. Thank you Jasmine .

Jasmine’s heart and soul are at the altar of her retreat. She embodies the practice of yoga and gently echoed this through the thoughtful, purposeful and considered planning and delivery of this retreat. Unafraid to dive within the depths of her own soul and her own practice, she tenderly encouraged the same from her students. The afternoon spent in the lush surroundings of her home, her temple – provided an inspiring backdrop to move through a physical, emotional and soulful practice of yoga whilst serenely accepting a journey of self reflection and surrender as the afternoon unfolded. This retreat provided a beautiful balance of yoga, mindfulness, creativity and sensory awakening as something truly ‘divine’ opened a space for 10 beautiful women to connect with their intuition, themselves and within the raw beauty of one another. Thank you Jasmine!

The grounded retreat was peaceful, nurturing and gently powerful. The environment and Jasmine both are so welcoming, providing a gentle and steady support throughout the day, and it was almost effortless to sink into the connection with earth.

This short break is like a short sacred space within a weekend. The perfect top up of yoga, nature and silence we all need to reset ourselves to deal with the busy-ness of everyday life. Jasmine provides not only a luxurious practice in beautiful setting, but gorgeous snacks and food so you leave feeling completely nourished in absolutely every way.

Sincere thanks for a wonderful retreat yesterday afternoon. I had a truly inspiring time,I can’t believe it’s been a whole year since I last joined you. I particularly enjoyed the Winter Solstice ritual and I feel lighter, more focused and ready to face the next six months with clear intentions. I could actually feel what I wanted to release moving away from me when we were chanting- Amazing!! Thank you also for the delicious meal, chai and slice. I felt very fortunate to be there yesterday, as always you are a true inspiration to me and by far my favourite teacher in all things yogi.

Jasmine’s unique yoga retreats and classes provide me with a heart opening soulful experience, a pure joy, an incredible yoga flow in environments that are both blissful and nurturing. I feel blessed that I have met such a wonderful soul who teaches me the importance of internal balance.

As soon as you step out of your car, you are met with nature in abundance, rustic and earthy surrounds and 5 star trimmings. Jasmine’s gorgeous and welcoming presence greets you at the onset and graciously supports you through your experience. The retreat is a perfect way to completely break away from the busyness and stresses of daily life. My experience was one of not only connecting with other beautiful women, but reconnecting with my self, quietening my mind, rejuvenating my body and nourishing my soul. I highly recommend any opportunity you have to work with Jasmine, her passion and knowledge within her art of yoga is exemplary and her quest to share that knowledge with others is a joy to be held. Treat yourself, the rewards will be plenty! –

Jasmine’s yoga in nature retreats always bring me home to myself. Arriving up the drive, breathing in the fresh air and stunning scenery, my shoulders relax and I can exhale knowing I can devote the time to fully letting go and relaxing. Jasmine is welcoming and her style of yoga is nurturing and intuitive. Her sequences are always heartfelt and you leave floating on a blissed out yoga high. Meeting other like minded yogis and sharing a scrumptious meal at the end is a highlight too. As are the chai and bliss balls!!
