‘Arriving at the Sanctuary is like taking a deep, nourishing breath… the forest setting and the simple, tasteful setting of the buildings helps to blend out the outside world and to shed the pressure of daily life. Surrounded by lush green and bird calls, the yoga space cocoons a sense of tuning in that seems to arise all by itself.’

Daniela Ceccarelli


‘It was during my first visit to Sanctuary that I fell in love with the place – it’s natural beauty, spectacular view over the Coral Sea, and setting amongst the rainforest. Since that time I have run eight yoga retreats at Sanctuary and people consistently remark on the fresh, delicious, and healthy food which is adapted to everyone’s particular needs as well as the setting for all activities at Sanctuary. The yoga room is secluded and nestled in the heart of the rainforest where the natural environment enhances the practices, and we always seem to have the nearby beach to ourselves for morning sunrise meditations. I’ve come to learn that many factors make up a great retreat: the setting, the food, the facilities, and the program. Sanctuary has it all and I can’t wait to return for the next experience!’
