Five Elements Beach Yoga Retreats in Cairns

Reconnect with Nature in our Five Elements Yoga Retreats in Palm Cove, Cairns.

Explore the 5 elements of Ayurveda – Earth, Water, Fire, Air & Space.

Within yourself, within your yoga practice and within nature.


In this Luxury 3 night Yoga and Meditation Retreat, immerse yourself in the elements in our open air beachfront ‘Yoga Shala’ whilst enjoying the exquisite 5 Star beachfront accommodation provided at The Alamanda Resort, Palm Cove.

Palm Cove is Cairns’ most beautiful beach suburb and is situated just 25 minutes north of Cairns Airport.  The Alamanda is Palm Cove’s only completely beachfront resort and was voted in the Top 5 Resorts in Australia on Trip Advisor in 2016.  With a back drop of Rainforest covered mountains, and a tropical beach just metres in front, it really is the perfect get away and the perfect setting for our 5 elements Yoga Retreats.

On this paradise retreat, Beth Hartig will take you on a journey through the 5 elements in her Yoga and Meditation classes.  Each class will be focused on one of the 5 elements- Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Space, giving you a chance to gain a deeper understanding of each element within yourself, within your yoga practice and within nature.

Our Yoga Classes will be held on the grassy beachfront area, under the shade of the palm trees, just in front of the Resort. (of course, a beautiful sheltered yoga space is available within the resort if the weather is wet).



”Often our busy lives can ‘get in the way’ of our connection to nature.  Our busy work schedules in the city can leave us with little time to connect to the simplicy and beauty of the nature that surrounds us, and also our true nature within.  This retreat will connect you back to the 5 elements, back to nature, and back to your true nature – all of which is really one and the same.”    

Beth Hartig
