I cannot wait to share some of the retreat only special things with you right here in our own beautiful Croydon Yoga home. A mini break from the mundane and a space to re-imagine – rest and refresh your body, mind and spirit and feel fully alive!

Our brand new Yoga studio upstairs at 36 Main st Croydon is the perfect place to connect with yourself and our precious yogi community, to find a fresh start to the new year with hope and intention. A weekend of great local food, great people, daily yoga and meditation and a heap of laughs. You won’t have to lift a finger, everything is ready for your single day or weekend wellness yoga retreat.

 One full day of all things yoga, 7:30am-4:30pm including morning tea and lunch. There will be long luxurious yoga classes, guided meditation, workshops, time for contemplation and delicious vegetarian cuisine! 

The food is all locally sourced seasonal vegetarian from Main st traders.

The retreat aims to nourish you body, mind and spirit. A contemplative space for you to reflect, breathe and rejuvenate. At Asha Yoga we love children, but on this retreat, it will be a no children zone. Our prayer is that you will take time away from the kids to focus on YOU and return refreshed and refocused ready to take on the parenting mantle with an increased mental capacity, more peace, more love and more self control.

About Michelle

I noticed the connection between my mental health and my physical body when I injured my back in a rugby accident when I was 17. During the months of recovery I noticed my pain levels were a reflection of how stressed I was. This started a journey of self discovery: what did I need to do to cope with stress? How should I manage my naturally overactive mind?

I have grown up being part of a local church, and have seen people improve their health through different spiritual disciplines. After injuring my spine, I searched for new physical disciplines that would have less impact on my body, and would keep me strong and fit.

When I discovered yoga as an adult it rocked my world. By then I had a special needs child and the demands of a growing family. The connection I experienced in yoga’s practice of movement with breath, and of meditation, gave me a strong connection to God. I experienced peace, and a deep sense of being whole.

I noticed a gentle but gradual recovery from my rugby injury. Yoga became the one hour of the week I could not live without! As a result, I am a better wife, mother, and friend!

I am now passionate about sharing this powerful practice. I transitioned from working in exercise science and personal training to teaching yoga. I love Vinyasa yoga, its fluid movement and its strength gains. I also love Yin yoga; the space it creates for contemplative practice and mindfulness.

I teach from a Christian frame of reference. I have a passion for the environment, for ethical living, and for empowering others to improve their physical, mental and spiritual health. My classes aim to seek greater peace, connection and imagination, together with mindful movement and breath. You can find me in Croydon, Melbourne, Australia.

My Self-compassion practice

Taking regular classes remind me that it’s ok to be who I am and how I am today. I’m stronger I cope with stress better, my back injury is recovering, and I no longer have daily pain.
