Organise your event on our lovingly restored 150 year old working farm, where traditional stone barns have been transformed into contemporary accommodation and wonderful venues for workshops, presentations, dance, movement or play. During your stay, let us nourish you with healthy, home-cooked, vegetarian meals, full of ingredients from our organic farm.
Located in a lovingly converted farm building, Pine Hall is full of history and charm with wooden beams, original stone walls and lots of natural daylight. With 128 m2 this is our centre’s largest space. Pine Hall is temperature controlled and contains audio visual equipment. It has a slightly raised stage, making it the perfect venue for workshops, small music concerts, intimate weddings or conferences.
The shala’s natural stone walls and daylight provide the perfect setting to sit in silence, stretch, chant or move. This temperature-controlled room comfortably accommodates up to 25 yogis and is equipped with an assortment of yoga props (mats, bolsters, blocks, straps, blankets and Feet-Up stools), as well as a sound system and various light plans.
Let your imagination run wild in our spacious art studio. Paint, sculpt, draw, dance and create in this unique space where floor to ceiling windows provide natural daylight and views over the fields and stables. Tables, easles and basic art supplies are available for you to use.
The outdoor shala is located a 10-15 minute walk from the main buildings at the farm and is overlooking the natural pond. The perfect spot for a picnic, a refreshing dip in the water or a sunset activity on the wooden outdoor deck. Transport for the yoga equipment is provided.
A quiet space, inside the main house with floor-to-ceiling windows boasting views of the pool. Set-up as a lounge, the Blue Veranda is ideal for smaller groups, one-to-one sessions and breakouts.
Enjoy the tranquil meditation garden: a slice of paradise with large trees, shaded, winding walkways and a koi pond with fountain. Whether it is sitting on one of the benches or feeling the earth under your feet during a barefoot walking meditation, you can be sure to find serenity and peace here.
A spacious outdoor arena, a smaller indoor arena and stables with adjacent paddocks, washing facilities, a tack room and kitchen room set the scene for your event. A perfect setting for courses, demonstrations and workshops, with or without horses.
Our pool and surrounds are the focal point of summer activities with guests lounging on the pool deck or the grass or enjoying poolside alfresco dining. Bordered by tall shady pine trees and expansive lawns, this area is used for outdoor retreat activities throughout the year.
