This unique retreat will take a deep dive into DNS, Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilisation, using the very framework of movement and posture that we developed over the first year of life, as an infant. DNS allows us to inquire about our

posture through movement, creating more awareness and more stable movement patterns.


This work is profound and powerful, and can be applied to ALL your current movement practices/exercises. 

Darren and Bianca will gently guide us in workshops, to break things down to the simplest of steps, using breath, and simple postures, and contextualise them with yoga, functional movement, strength and mobility exercises.



Bring home deep self awareness of your posture through movement


Whether you're a surfer, horse-rider, yogi, golfer or just starting a movement journey, it just feels so good to be connected to a stable point within our body.

The more we practice, the easier it feels, and the more the brain will take it on as an unconscious movement pattern! 

Moving with relative ease as opposed to creating more tension.


The strong focus on body awareness, invites us to listen and tune in to not only where our body is in space, but also how we feel as we move. 




Darren is an Osteopath, with a background steeped in Ashtanga Yoga. He has always been a lover of movement, through yoga, surfing, swimming and more recently with DNS. DNS has personally allowed Darren to address longstanding injuries, and now feels he's moving better than ever, with greater awareness and stability.

Bianca is co-owner of Banksia Wellness Retreats and  a chiropractor, with 15 years of clinical experience. Bianca prioritises person-centric, individualised care within her movement classes, with hands-on assistance and attention.

Bianca is also trained in Yin Yoga.
