I have recently completed an intensive training with Narelle Carter-Quinlan, on yoga for scoliosis and back care. The learning continues with a practicum which I will be involved with until the end of the year.  I am so grateful to have had this opportunity to learn from such a wise and gifted teacher and I look forward to sharing some of those learnings with my students in class.

HEART OF YOGA RETREAT, Stanthorpe 9 - 11 November 2012

What a beautiful week-end we shared by the water, in the misty rain surrounded by love, laughter, fabulous food, yoga and dance.  It was a privilege and a pleasure to support you in your practice and a joy to watch you explore and express your heart centre. Thank you for making our second Stanthorpe Yoga Retreat such a success.  May the experience continue to resonate with you and around you and through you. Namaste Maree

Testimonials Yoga Retreat 2011

I am delighted to be coming along to Maree and Tricia's Yoga retreat in November.   I went to their inaugural Retreat last year and absolutely loved it - I thought it was so well planned, a beautiful group of people, a great venue and a true joy.   I have been involved with a group of people on the Sunshine Coast holding many Yoga Retreats and Yoga Workshops over the past ten years and I think Maree and Tricia did a fantastic job last year - so well thought out.
With my friends we felt we weren't really pleased until about Retreat no. 5!   So I really commend Maree and Tricia on their first Retreat - it was GREAT!
 Namaste,   Liz Newman

October 2012

The last few months have seen several of our local Yoginis travelling and dipping into yoga classes all over Australia and the world.  Maggie found her way to Morocco and Norway, B soaked up the lush yoga shalas of Bali, Sue is currently in the UK and travelling onto India.  Deb experienced a retreat in North Queensland and Trish spends part of every week in Byron. Yoga is a practice that can be shared in any community and how amazing it is  to experience different teachers and styles all over the world and yet still feel familiar in the practice.
