A 4-night retreat to restore and revitalise

Combining all the good stuff: yoga and DNS

Return to the very simplest foundations of movement, breath and posture.

August 15th (4pm) - 19th (12pm)
Sea Eagle Point, 
Pacific Palms Hinterland


Making our movements sustainable, so that we can continue to do the things we love, especially yoga, for as long as we want


This retreat is all about combining the love of a yoga practice with DNS.
DNS (Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilisation) is the framework of movement, breath and posture that we developed over the first year of life as an infant. 

It enables us to observe our posture through movement, and create more awareness of how we are moving. 

In this way, we can relearn more stable, functional movement patterns

and bring longevity into our physical body and our yoga practice.

In the  early 1990s we returned home from studying with Sri K. Pattabhi Jois in Mysore South India. We then began teaching the first daily Ashtanga vinyasa classes in Melbourne.

We frequently hold specialist workshops and immersions with globally renowned teachers as supplementary knowledge for our students and community.

"The yoga practise has taught my mind to focus and be still when needed, my body to be strong and supple and I feel free from discomfort and agitations . I have felt supported through my lifes hard times by the potency but stability of the practise." Tracy Cooper



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 is a DNS practitioner prioritising person-centric care within her movement classes, with hands-on assistance and attention.

When we begin to learn to move in this way, it's often that we experience those "AHA" moments.

These make all the difference. 

"Do your practice, all is coming."

- Sri K. Pattabhi Jois

Experience 100 acres of seclusion on the Myall Lakes waterfront within the lush surroundings of the Pacific Palms Hinterland.

Imagine your own private jetty, sitting by the fire at night, sun warmed daybed, by day. Brimming with wildlife and flora, Sea Eagle Point is a side of the hinterland you've rarely seen, with equal charm and beauty to the rugged coastline of Cellito and Boomerang Beach.


There are so many extra options for movement; a tennis court, beautiful running and walking trails, swimming in the lake, table tennis table and badminton set.
