Behind the Bay - Explore like a local
Join us for a unique journey exploring the hidden, untouched gems surrounding Byron Bay. Enjoy an authentic, local experience and discover magical places you never would have known existed. Your day will begin with us picking you up from your accomodation in town. We journey through the hinterlands to the rushing waters of Killen falls, where you can swim amongst the turtles whilst surrounded by magical caves and trees. We then explore the epic Lennox Head coastline with uninterrupted views of the Pacific Ocean, impressive cliffs, beaches, grassy hills, and lakes - all in the one place. Following this, take a rejuvenating swim in the sacred ti tree lake, Lake Ainsworth. Boosting immunity, blood circulation, relieving aches and pains and leaving your skin soft and silky. Here we also stop for a delicious lunch on the stunning seven mile beach. After lunch we explore the winding paths of the stunning Broken Head Nature Reserve to the Three Sisters Lookout. With miles of pristine coastline and a forest walk that leaves you on, arguably, Byron's most stunning and secluded beach. The day is topped off with a 360-degree view of the iconic Byron Bay and its surrounds. Gain insight into the history of sacred locations and those who wish to protect them. Leave with a greater understanding and appreciation for what the region has to offer, and make friends along the way!

We will have a beautiful yin and melodic led Chi Gung practice melting into our own version of movement at the end. Practicing flow from our internal guidance and power systems while integrating breath. It’s a mind body soul connection.

Manifestation Breathwork Journey Combining a variety of mediation, mindfulness, breathwork techniques and a beautiful sound bath to get you out of your head and connect deeply to your body, experiencing profound love and fulfilment from within. Breathing is the foundation of life. The first step in enhancing health, performance and longevity is through the optimisation of breath. It influences every system and function within the body. Breathwork has been used for thousands of years to access the stillness that exists beyond the thinking mind. It is an indispensable method for supporting the body’s peak health and vitality, increasing concentration and awareness. These are some of the most powerful practices you can do for transforming your mind and body. By using the energy of your breath you are able to breakthrough the armouring and conditioning, bringing whatever needs to come to the surface, and moving it through your body, releasing it in a safe space, while being in your flow, which allows you to step into who you truly are. Raise your frequency and vibration. Open your mind and heart to the possibility that you can attract whatever you want in life. What you receive is up to you. Your only limit is your mind. You will be fully guided on this experience to deeply connect to your breath, mind, body and soul.
