Hare Krishna Valley will run a weekend Women's Yoga Retreat in May centred around uncovering the natural, powerful, instinctive and sacred voice.

The 'Woman and the Voice of the Divine' Retreat delves into the very nature of the Divine and our own spiritual nature as human beings. There is an understanding that spirituality is the process of personal transformation and the retreat is a journey to uncover the Divine spark, a journey of re-aligning our spiritual nature. By allowing your divine voice to emerge you can connect to your true spiritual nature.

"On the voice's journey from the brain to the world, the relationship to the emotional, spiritual body can play a huge part in the resultant sound, tone, clarity of the message. If we look at yogic philosophy and the relationship to the 7 energy centres in the body, we can see how this can affect our responses"

Carmella Baynie

'The 7 energy centres of the body' are the 7 Chakras, or wheels of energy points. In this women's retreat, yoga practices and knowledge of the 7 Chakras are explored to discover the elements in our lives that are blocked or need healing. These chakras respond to nerve centres in the body. The seven main chakras also contain major organs, as well as our psychological, emotional and spiritual states of being. If there is an unbalance in one of these areas then the energy in the chakra does not flow properly, causing unrest, unease or ill health.

The Seven Chakras

Wellbeing is explored through a focus on self expression, health, love and prosperity. Breath is the source of our voice and so breathing techniques, yoga and meditation is essential to the process of uncovering the sacred voice.

The retreat will begin on Friday 22nd May, with dinner being served at 6.30pm, and the program commencing at 7.30pm. It concludes on Sunday 24th May at 3pm. It will be facilitated by Carmella Baynie Carmella has been teaching and practicing yoga, self development and voice training for over 30 years. She constantly travels the world to share her knowledge with as many people as she can.

The price of the retreat is $245 per person and $195 concession. The fee includes detailed workshops on discovering your Divine Voice, early morning yoga classes, three delicious vegetarian meals each day and two nights accommodation in twin berth rooms.

The retreat centre is situated on 200 acres in the foothills of the Otway Ranges and is surrounded by state forest on three sides. It is a beautiful, quiet piece of land set back from the main road.
