Wilderness Yoga 'Seasons' Series ~ Autumn
Warrandyte State Park ~ Pound Bend Reserve
In our Wilderness Yoga 'Seasons' Series we draw on yoga, meditation, pranayama (breath work), nature walking, seasonal bushfood and re-wilding practices, along with some wisdom from Ayurveda (the sister science of Yoga), to ground into the season, and rediscover ourselves in the wilderness. This grouding retreat will guide us through mid Autumn Wurundjeri Country; along banks of the Yarra River, winding through the gum-lined trails and tranquil vistas of Pound Bend Reserve and Tunnel. Together, we will journey to rediscover ourselves, and the wild, in the presence of autumn quieting, as we begin the transition to early winter.
Wild Tribe you asked, so you got it! We specifically designed these half day retreats to fit in around your busy schedule, and have curated stunning accessible wilderness locations for our 'Seasons' series. Easier to access for an afternoon retreat, these locations are complete with gentle walking trails, toilet facilities, and provide easier walking than our regular full day retreats in National and State Parks. Its all about bringing you closer to the wilderness around you. We can't wait for you to join us in the wild!

* Easy hiking grade: General level walking on well-made trails. Uneven surfaces are present (rocks, tree roots, leaf litter etc). Slippery surfaces at times, particularly after rain.
Note: This is not a "walk in the park" :) As with all hikes in wilderness areas, the walking trails will of course be unpaved. As such, all hikes (including those categoried as 'easy') will have plentiful uneven ground, rough, slippery and undulating surfaces. This is the wild after all! If you have any concerns about the trail, or any injuries or illnesses which you'd like to discuss, please feel free to contact us (there is also a place to provide this info during online registration).
