Active Rest Retreats

Active Rest | Walk, Wine and Wander in Nature.

Active Rest in nature

A guided mindful nature journey.

Immerse yourself and nourish your body, mind & soul amongst the sights, sounds and smells of Mark Oliphant Conservation Park on a guided mindful nature journey.

Along the way, you will pause during your guided walk for gentle moments of mindful breathwork and yoga asanas that allow you to connect deeply with this beautiful land that we wander upon, the air that we breathe, and the abundant nature that surrounds us.

Afterwards, you are invited to join the optional wine tasting next door at Deviation Road winery; sampling a seasonal flight of cool climate wines from mature vineyard resources in the Adelaide Hills.

Active Rest Retreats aims to help women embody wellness and self-healing tools, making them accessible for everyday life.

Join co – founders; Sarah Hayes and Elise Lavers, as they guide you on a two-hour mini-retreat, allowing you to sample what our longer “Active Rest Retreats” offer.

Sarah has degrees in ecology and psychology, along with vinyasa flow and pranayama teacher training, plus 7 years of experience in eco-tour guiding. Elise has degrees in health science and education, and training as a qualified bushwalking/ kayaking/ sup instructor, along with 7 years of experience in outdoor guiding too.

Together, Elise and Sarah combine their expertise to help women to actively rest, and to be more restfully active. We look forward to wandering with you.
