The “Into the Wild” half 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.
On these retreats we dance with the elements, mark the seasons, harmonise with the rhythms of the earth
We unwind our bodies, commune with our souls and rejuvenate our spirit.
We feel, we heal, we reveal ….
We listen… and hear the whispers in the wind, and from our heart …
Now in their fifth year, these popular and potent half-day retreats are an opportunity to relish wonder of being woman through our practice and our innate connection to the natural world at the ever-lush Upper Brookfield Yoga Shala.
Each retreat includes yoga, women’s circle, shamanic (earth-based) practices and ritual. . . ways in which women throughout time and place have gathered for healing and empowerment.
There will be time in sacred silence to soak in the lush natural surrounds over a cup of chai, and also the opportunity for meaningful connection.
Our practice on these retreats is always aligned with the seasons and dependent on what Mama Nature is doing on the day and the energy of the group…. They are intuitively led and will invite you to connect with your intuitive nature!
These retreats are suited to women yearning to return to their roots, to take the time to dive deeper into themselves and their connection with Nature. 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 – The Upper Brookfield Yoga Shala – 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 for winter months!
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.

What other women have shared about their "Into the Wild" experience
The retreats and yoga offered by Jasmine are unique and are not matched in the same way by anyone else I have experienced in Brisbane. The setting is pure magic, with bubbling brooks, bird song and the trees whistling to keep you grounded, present and fully in your body during your time with Jasmine.
Jasmine has a gift in offering a safe and supportive space during her yoga classes and retreats. You are graciously and lovingly invited into deep presence with yourself and your body. Yoga becomes a deeply healing and relaxing experience.Her yogic knowledge, along with her knowledge in other healing modalities and her energetic and psychic sensitivity, make her a holistic yoga teacher whose teachings cover your mental, emotional and physical body.
Her women’s retreats are infused with feminine beauty, grace, awareness and deep compassion.I fully trust Jasmine to lead me into the deeper (and sometimes darker) parts of myself, knowing she will hold me throughout all of it with a deep rooted and unfaltering integrity. I highly recommend ♡
Sincere thanks for a wonderful retreat yesterday afternoon. I had a truly inspiring time. 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.
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!
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!
Whatever you need – Jasmine will show you the way. Her 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.
