Mandala Living is running a few small intimate Women’s Relaxation and Restorative retreats throughout the year. 

We run our retreats with Kirstie Christensen and have created these special weekends and day retreats as a space for women to slow down, to unwind, to nurture themselves and to connect with other like minded women. To register your interest for future retreats please sign up here and enter code Retreats.


If you are in need to a little self care and want to RESET for the festive season, we are now taking bookings for our Day Retreat at Coasters on Pittwater.


Retreats aren’t all indulgent pampering, they are a chance to shift from busy doing mode to being mode.

The word retreat comes from the Latin verb ‘to pull back, to withdraw.’ Going on a retreat is like hitting the pause button.

  • SLOW DOWN:  unplug and rest (no cooking or cleaning – yay)
  • GET CLEAR: it’s all about you – what do YOU want in your life!
  • LEARN: tools and techniques to integrate
  • CONNECT: with like minded women

“The best investment you make is in yourself.”

“Ahh the serenity. What a special time i had amongst the trees, eating delicious and nutritious food and enjoying all the activities including bush walking, yoga and journaling. If you need to unplug, then Kirsty and Tara’s retreats are highly recommended.”  – Penny
“Thank you Kirst and Tara for such an incredible retreat last weekend. It created so much ‘space’ and it allowed me to unwind, eat deliciously healthy food and still have a great laugh / chat with like minded women over a vino! The peaceful location , bushwalks, meditations, gentle yoga, Fire side Mandala drawing sessions, setting intentions and goals all helped to rest, restore and reinvigorate me for the next few months as a mum of three active boys! Our hosts Kirst and Tara were unlike other retreat hosts- they were very relaxed, flexible,unobtrusive, supportive and made us laugh too! It was a fantastic atmosphere where you could do as much or as little as you wanted to each day. If you are craving some time to pause, reflect, enjoy being present and rest then I highly recommend one of their retreats! Thanks guys x ”

“Getting out of Sydney for the weekend into Nature with a gorgeous group of like-minded women was just what I needed as I was feeling overwhelmed with work, kids and away husband travelling. It was time for ME to Relax with Meditation, Yoga, Nature walks, someone else cooking delicious healthy meals and having lots of cups of teas. I loved doing the workshops to gain some perspective of what I desired/needed to return home ~ I often look at my notes from the Retreat. Thank you for a magical weekend Kirsty and Tara”.  NAMASTE – Lulu

A little about the retreat…

Coasters is a short 15 minute ferry ride from Palm Beach  – a beautiful getaway in the Kurringai National Park. You will feel like you are a million miles away.

Our day retreats are designed to reset and restore. Nov 22nd is the perfect time to RESET before the busyness of the Christmas Season.

Our friends from Food Theatre will prepare delicious food. We have a fabulous day of yoga, walking in nature and meditation to share with you.

Of course, if you have questions please do not hesitate to get in touch.
We hope you can join us.
With love,
