Yoga Teachers Cairns

It is said that the longest journey we will ever take is from the head to the heart… let’s take this journey together.

Join Beth Hartig and Amber Legay from Hartig Yoga for a 4 night Yoga, Pranayama (breathing exercises) and Meditation Retreat in the stunningly beautiful Eco Resort ‘The Sanctuary’, in Mission Beach, Far North Queensland

Sunday May 22nd  – Thursday May 26th 2022.

About The Retreat

Over 4 days we will practice Yoga (Vinyasa and Hatha in the morning, Yin and Restorative in the evenings), Meditation, Breath work and Mantra (chanting) to connect back to Anahata, the heart center.

In this unique retreat, we will be working with the qualities of the heart- connection/community, gratitude, forgiveness, love and compassion (for self and others).
This retreat will also include- A sacred Cacao Ceremony and Sound Healing.

About The Sanctuary

This retreat is held at The Sanctuary, Mission Beach, which is a unique rainforest eco-lodge and yoga centre, nestled halfway between Townsville and Cairns.

It boasts 50 acres of private tropical rainforest, a swimming pool in the rainforest, access to a near and secluded beach and is probably the best place in Australia to see a cassowary in the wild (in fact, most people in our last retreat group saw the resident cassowary walking about!

Retreat Pricing

We have a few different pricing options available depending on whether you would like to share with a friend/partner (and you are both participating in the retreat) OR whether you just want a private room to yourself.  You can also choose between a Rainforest Cabin and a Deluxe Cabin.  We will explain these two options and the pricing below.

Yoga Teachers Cairns

Rainforest Ensuite


Accessed by a boardwalk to protect the forest floor, the rainforest huts are designed to be like a bubble in the rainforest and can be opened on three sides by sliding timber and glass panels giving a beautiful close rainforest experience.

Each hut has a small verandah, simple furnishings and sleeps two in either double or twin occupancy. Each has an attached outdoor en-suite, looking out to the rainforest, with a toilet, sink and cold shower.


Hot showers are available in the main shared bathrooms, which can be used by all.
Just let us know if you require a Twin or Double room if sharing. (Two people must book at the same time to share- couple or friends.)

4 nights – $1111 or $949 per person if sharing a room.

Deluxe Canopy Cabins

For those few extra comforts we also have our Deluxe Canopy Cabin Accommodation – Solid wood construction, with ample, screened glass windows, the canopy cabins offer maximum protection from the elements, while still offering a close connection to the sights and sounds of the forest.

Larger than the rainforest huts, these cabins are stylishly appointed with polished wooden floors, handmade natural timber furniture and spectacular glass-walled bathrooms looking out high in the trees.

With a studio-style lounge and bedroom and a private, furnished verandah, the canopy cabins offer superior accommodation in an entirely natural environment.

4 nights – $1333 or $1111 per person if sharing

The perfect option if you are needing a little more more space and some creature comforts. 


7 x 120 minute Yoga, Meditation and Pranayama practices (guided by Beth and Amber) and 1 x 60 Minute Yoga practice (on the last day).
