14 - 16 May 2021
Treat yourself to an intimate weekend away on our Thala Beach Body Soul Rainforest Escape. The retreat will take place on a private property and nature reserve in the secluded forests north of Cairns, with access to a beautiful private beach. The natural setting is the perfect background for the body and soul to unwind and replenish.
Accommodation is at Thala Beach Nature Reserve in exotic eco-bungalows surrounded by native forest with some vistas stretching out into the Coral Sea. Wake up to the sound of birds singing and prepare for the day of self care, yoga and nurture.
Through the practice of yoga, pranayama and meditation find the moment of stillness within your body, your breath and your mind and take that moment of balance into everyday experiences in the busy world.
The perfect setting of our Thala Beach Yoga Retreat will allow for plenty of downtime, long walks on the beach, a swim in the ocean or one of the pools to bask in the natural beauty and integrate the inner work.
In addition to the daily yoga and meditation you will have an interactive and informative session with a local well-known Cairns naturopath. With years of experience in natural medicine and nutrition you will learn about the influence the right diet has on your body’s ability to heal itself.
With this in mind we will take part in a Southeast Asian-style cooking class. Learn how to make a selection of Asian-inspired dishes, under the watchful eye of a professional chef, where your culinary skills will be enhanced and your taste buds satisfied with what you create.
Let yourself withdraw from the outside world and step into the inner sanctuary on this weekend Body Soul Rainforest Escape at Thala Beach.

Yoga: Alison Dale
Alison has completed multiple trainings with world-renowned teachers—Noah Maźe, Elena Brower, Lizzie Lasater—in styles from vinyasa, to alignment, to restorative. Her classes encourage a playful curiosity, helping students uncover their innate potential through her unique blend of lightness and depth. Her sequences are skillfully crafted to empower students to peel open their protective layers and reconnect with the heart of the practice.
For Alison, yoga is life. During treatment for cancer, yoga and meditation were the means by which she stepped into boundless depths of love and strength and clarity. The practice kept her grounded and resilient through years of treatment. She runs yoga classes in various locations in Cairns and brings a lived experience of the potency and power of the practice.
“I came to yoga for the physical benefits. I stayed for the deepening sense of clarity, insight and connection it brought into my life. The simplest way I can describe the benefits of yoga, is to say—everything is easier when I’m immersed in the practice.
Along the way, I’ve been lucky enough to learn from some of the world’s most renowned teachers. The greatest joy in my life is seeing my students come alive. More fully attuned to the timeless, more fully embodied and whole.”
