Claire March, founder of One Life Yoga (OLY), will be your co-host and yoga teacher. Claire specialises in corporate yoga, local events in Melbourne and yoga retreats in Victoria and Italy. She is a qualified yoga instructor and has been practising for over 10 years.
Bethany Osborne, an integrative health educator and doTERRA Wellness Advocate from Melbourne, will lead the essential oils workshop. Bethany offers one-on-one coaching, and runs regular workshops on essential oils and DIY skincare at public events and retreats. She also sells a small range of products that she personally uses and loves.
Sabijn Linssen (Sab) is the founder of Retreat Here, and co-host for this Yoga, Wine and Glamping retreat in Victoria. She has worked in the travel and event industry for more than 15 years and created her own retreat company in 2016.
Claire, Bethany and Sab are all advocates of a balanced lifestyle, which is why they joined forces on these Yoga and Wine retreats.
Designed to help you escape the daily grind, our yoga retreat is the perfect opportunity to enjoy a digital detox amongst the vines. Join us at Balgownie Estate Winery in Bendigo and surround yourself with lush greenery and wine-loving yogis.
Claire's yoga classes are both relaxed and dynamic, using a mix of asanas (postures), pranayama (breath regulation) and meditation. She will provide adjustments for all levels, whether you’re a beginner or advanced practitioner. Claire is also a huge advocate of living a balanced life and enjoying what makes you feel good, and that includes chocolate and red wine!
In the Essential Oil Skincare workshop, you will learn to make your own skincare products from organic and natural ingredients, how synthetic chemicals and fragrances are impacting our health, why essential oils have been used in ancient medicine and beauty throughout history and which ones are best for the skin.
Guests have the option to book private or shared accommodation in the homestead or bell tents. If you’re craving a bit more adventure and a digital detox experience, we highly recommend the tents! Solo travellers can choose between a private queen room with en suite in the homestead, or your very own glamping tent with shared (enclosed) bathroom. Sharing a room? The lovely tents provide twin accommodation and a shared (enclosed) bathroom. Couples or friends wanting to stay in the homestead can book a queen room and share a bed (no twins).
