Yin/Yang and 5 Elements

Yoga Teachers Cairns

Join Beth Hartig and Amber Legay from Hartig Yoga for a yoga retreat in Cairns region.  This will be a 5 night Yoga, Pranayama (breathing exercises) and Meditation Retreat in the stunningly beautiful Eco Village, in Mission Beach, Far North Queensland.

In this unique retreat, we will spend 1 day exploring each of the 5 elements (based on Five Elements Theory).  Set where the rainforest meets the beach, this retreat is an opportunity to connect back to nature and to the 5 elements around AND within us.

When is it?

Friday 17th November – Wednesday 22nd November 2023 


About The Retreat

Over 5 days and 5 nights we will practice Yin yoga in the evenings and Yang yoga (Vinyasa and Slow Flow) in the mornings to connect to one of the five elements- Earth, Water, Fire, Metal and Wood. 

There will be a total of 10 practices, a Yin and a Yang practice for each of the elements. We will also have little workshops/journal prompts and activities to help us journey deeper.
