What if I have specific dietary requirements?
After you enroll for the retreat, we will send you an email requesting more information about yourself. Eco Beach will be able to cater for any specific dietary requirements you have.
What to expect from the Yoga sessions?
The retreat will provide you with time to slow down, breathe, and rest. All our yoga sessions will be held in a beautiful space overlooking the ocean.
Participants will gain a deeper understanding of Yoga and what the practice means for them.
We will run a variety of Yoga sessions, each requiring a different type of energy and focus.
Our Vinyasa yoga sessions will build heat and strength. We will work through a warming flow, creating challenge for the body and mind.
Our Yin and Yoga Nidra sessions will slow down the body and mind, creating space to be still and listen. Yin postures are typically held for an extended period and this allows the bod time to let go and surrender.
Yoga Nidra is a state of Yogic sleep. In a comfortable lying position participants will be guided through a long meditation, hopefully leaving everyone is a calm and peaceful state – ready for a restful nights sleep.
All the sessions will be suited to students of all levels.
Where is Eco Beach and how do I get there?
Eco Beach is located 130 km from Broome, 120 km along the Great Northern Highway and 10 km along a well maintained pindan (red dirt) road. Driving takes approximately 1.5 hours.
We would like to encourage participants to car pool to retreat rather than driving separately.
Who is taking them on their Yoga journey?
Our two Life and Soul yoga instructors will be leading the retreat – Nicole and Lea.
Nicole | Nicole has a love for Yoga and the benefits it brings to the body and mind. Since having children, it has continued to become a more important part of her life. Nicole is trained in Yoga, Pilates, Body Balance and CX.

Lea| Lea has had a long-time love for Yoga. When moving to Australia she started a dedicated daily practice. Her passion continued to grow and in 2018 she decided to take the plunge and complete her teacher training.

Meet our Yoga Instructors
Nicole will be taking you on your Yoga journey:
“I have always been passionate about physical activity and the benefits it brings to the body and mind. This passion drew me to studying exercise science and rehabilitation at university, providing me with a strong understanding of the body and exercise principles. In later years I started teaching the Les Mills Body Balance program. Loving movement to music and the beautiful flow of this class. I have always loved learning and this drew me to completing my STOTT Pilates mat qualification.
Yoga is a beautiful practice for calming the body and centring the mind. I was first exposed to Yoga in high school and have always been drawn back.It started to become more important in my life following the birth of my first child and my need to create mental space and peace.
After having my second child I decided I needed to make some time for myself and do something I have always wanted to do – learn more about Yoga, its philosophy and complete my teacher training.
This has been such a special self-development opportunity and now I am able to share the practice with other yoga lovers on the mat.
I love flowing sequences, precise technique, connection with the breath and practicing movements that we can take into our later life.”
Lea Christine Happes
200hrs registered Yoga teacher, had first planted the seed of concept of Yoga in her mid teens, when being introduced to a practicing group in a small village in Italy, by her most admired “yogi” her mum!
But it hasn’t been until her travels to Australia in her early twenties, that she has dedicated a committed everyday practice @The Raw Kitchen Yoga Studio, while living in Fremantle, and being led by her loving and supportive teachers through Hatha and mainly Vinyasa classes, creating here the foundation of her practice.
When moving to Broome and finding a sacred yoga space she began exploring a dynamic yoga practice. This included Iyengar Yoga and meditation classes, her practice not only remained a passion but also flourished as a way of living, and created curiosity and desire in deepening her knowledge.
After one year of a Hatha Vinyasa Flow teacher training @The Yoga Space, Lea, is still dedicated to an everyday disciplined practice, balancing led classes with self practice, in order to explore the growing awareness of the body and mind connected by the breath, in each Asana, with the intention to spread the science and art of yoga as felt by her with “love from the heart”, keeping the aim to plant seeds of awareness and connectedness through dynamic vinyasa flow sequences, emphasising on alignment in the various postures, while keeping the pace through the breath leading the movements, enabling her students to explore and flourish through their active engagement, preparing the body and mind for a conclusion of the class in a basic and still meditation practice!
