DescriptionYoga is a practice that transcends culture and age - and it unites the world. Yoga and its benefits are being enjoyed now by more people than ever before. With this in mind, Chenrezig Institute will celebrate the International Day of Yoga with practice, discussion, food and fun. On this special day we offer anybody the opportunity to come and enjoy yoga practice - no matter where you are on your yoga journey, if just starting out, getting back in the swing or steadily practicing. We will experience the joy of physical practice along discussions about some of the foundational aspects of the yoga tradition. This is your day to relax, be inspired and recharge in the idyllic natural surrounds of one of Australia’s oldest Buddhist centres! Please wear loose, comfortable clothing and bring a yoga mat and blanket, if you can. All welcome, however anyone with serious illness or injury must apply to Chenrezig Institute in writing. Please bring a yoga mat and a water bottle if you can. Sunday 12th June 9 am - 4.30 pm, in the Wellbeing Centre at Chenrezig Institute. Facility fee $95.10% discount for members and concession card holders. Accommodation and meals available separately. Meals must be booked before 10 am on the day of the event. The retreat leader Paul Wood (Woody) is Yoga instructor trained in India in the Guru Kulu system. His emphasis is to bring flexibility to body, spirit and mind. Woody enjoys light hearted but focused classes that lead participants into a meditative space. He has been practicing Yoga and Healing Arts for over 10 years.

Established 1974, Chenrezig Institute is a centre for Buddhist study, meditation, retreat and practice nestled in the foothills of the Sunshine Coast Hinterland. The Institute is home to a Tibetan Geshe (Lama), a large community of ordained Sangha (monks and nuns), students, residents, volunteers, retreat goers and guests.

Apart from the formal study programmes, Chenrezig Institute is a peaceful, calm and relaxing place to spend a few hours, days or weeks. Stroll along the bush paths, wander in formal garden, espresso in the cafe or a vegetarian meal.
