Kundalini Yoga Class


Wangat Lodge, Brandon Grove NSW

23-25 June 2023

Nourish your Nervous System

It’s your time.
Time to release underlying tension.
Time to let go of never-ending chores.
Time to let someone take care of you.
Reconnect with yourself.
Time to come back to yourself, and remember the wisdom and depth you possess.


We’ve arranged the details. We’ve made the plans and created the program.
All you have to do is show up & listen to the whispers of your body.

The Winter Solstice draws near, heralding the arrival of the shortest day and the longest night. In this moment, darkness reaches its pinnacle, marking the beginning of a new solar cycle. Gradually, the Sun emerges, illuminating our days, making them lighter, longer, and warmer. It is a time of recognising the growth experienced throughout the year, a time for celebration, re-emergence, and surrendering to the transformative process of rebirth. 

We come together in sacred ceremony, embracing the potent portal that bridges endings and beginnings, darkness and light, the masculine and the feminine, the union of the Sun and the Earth. These elements converge, offering us a profound opportunity to integrate past traumas, release unresolved emotions and stress, and evolve as human beings. By embarking on this journey, we empower our own healing and learn to tap into the innate wisdom residing within our bodies. Through this process, we can release the burdens of stress and cultivate resilience, not only for ourselves but also for others.

The healing power of nature unfolds as we engage with it, activating our parasympathetic nervous system, fostering a sense of calmness, and countering the effects of the sympathetic nervous system associated with stress-induced fight-or-flight responses. 

This transformative retreat seamlessly integrates ancient yogic wisdom, the practice of Breathwork, and embodiment exercises with contemporary insights from neuroscience and psychology. It encompasses a holistic approach, addressing every aspect of the individual's well-being—psychological, physical, spiritual, energetic, social, and environmental.

Within this immersive experience, we invite each individual to connect and listen to the whispers of  wisdom residing within their own body—a place of intuition, healing, and well-being. By acknowledging our expertise in our personal journey of healing, transformation, and overall well-being, participants become active agents in their own growth.

Our Tranquil Location

Wangat Lodge, 1938 Chichester Dam Rd, Bandon Grove NSW 2420, Australia

Located just 1.5 hours from Newcastle and 3 hours from Sydney. See map

Wangat Lodge is set on the Chichester River amongst the forest in the sub-tropical rainforest of the Barrington Tops. In the local Gringai dialect, it means a place where whispers are heard.

Wangat lodge is not a luxury resort. The centre is an eco community designed along the lines of an ashram and Wildlife Refuge. At Wangat there is an emphasis on accessibility and inclusion, the hope being to sha
re its wonders with as many as possible. Accommodation allows the rich and complex surroundings to speak. It is the perfect place for a relaxed, intimate stay.


The rooms are large and spacious - so it doesn’t feel crowded and you have enough p
ersonal space. Shared bathrooms are located close by.


The cottage house is self contained, for a couple wanting a weekend get away, or suitable for two friends. The house has a queen bed, single bed, fully equipped kitchen, bathroom and lounge area.

About Lucinda

This nex is an exploration based on the most important lessons and practices I have learned in my career. It is everything I wish I had known years ago when I began healing my relationship with myself and my nervous system.


Using some of the valuable tools I use in my private practice these courses are born out of my desire for everyone to have increased capacity for daily challenges and to do the deeper inner work.
