Breath Body Movement Medicine

Yoga retreat with Delamay Devi in the beautiful Byron Bay Hinterland, Australia

23 – 28 February 2023

If you’re seeking time out to create a deeper connection to self through the healing arts of yoga, movement, meditation, dance and ritual with a group of open hearted beings, then this retreat is for you!

During our time together…

We’ll dive into the embodiment landscape of our Breath and Body through movement as a medicinal practice, yoga asana and ecstatic trance dance exploration. Together we carve out this journey, moving and breathing as one, navigating the architecture of our extraordinary bodies with childlike curiosity. Be empowered to express your authentic self through somatic sensing, self inquiry and self care while replenishing on fertile lands. This retreat will inspire your intellectual mind, nourish your physical body and sooth your sensitive soul.

A beautiful deep dive into the magic of embodiment practices, women’s circles and being immersed in nature. A soul and heart nourishing journey!

Retreat Overview

Leave your weekly routine behind as you land and unpack at the House of Moons for a week of rejuvenation, connection and inspiration on sacred Bundjalung country. We’ll meet and greet for our opening circle and cacao ceremony before enjoying a heart-lead, slow moving and grounding practice to fully arrive and be present on all levels. Each day we rise with the sun for optional silent morning meditation and a warming cup of herbal tea. During our daily practices we work with intention, visualisation, writing, tarot cards and a full spectrum of movement pathways from form to formlessness to embody, express, move and celebrate the unique poetry of our incredible bodies. A full retreat schedule is available on request and will be sent one week before we gather.

During your free time you can soak up the calm soothing energy by the pool, walk on the lands and explore the creeks, visit local waterfalls, receive a massage, treat your yoni to a steam, share stories while connecting with others and SO much more. This time is your retreat time to fill with whatever your hearts desires. 

Our retreat highlights:

  • Ten full yoga movement and meditation practices with Delamay including a welcome ceremony and closing circle.
  • Taoist meditation, massage, yoni steaming, cacao ceremony and bonfire offering plus outdoor dance on the land under the stars.
  • Homemade, locally grown, organic and delicious vegan/ vegetarian meals twice daily plus tea and healthy snacks.
  • Turkish steam room and hot tub session under a starry sky!
  • Cool off in the pool and explore the expansive lush surrounds.

  • Group return transport from Byron Bay the to House of Moons.
Optional: Empower your movement practice while on retreat and learn the art of movement meditation with a 25hr Yoga Trance Dance teacher training! Created by Shiva Rea, Yoga Trance Dance® unfolds into an exploration of free-form, breath driven movement to liberate one’s creative life force and cultivate embodied freedom! This immersion is for anyone interested in the interconnections of meditation, yoga and dance. For more details about this training visit the dedicated page here.

Meet Your Host, Delamay Devi

Born and raised in beautiful Bundjalung country (northern NSW), Delamay is deeply passionate about offering movement as medicine and embodiment as a ritual practice while living in synch with the natural cycles of existence.

With a wealth of experience, her teaching and holding space work spans across two decades and a multitude of countries, festivals, conferences, studios, halls and centres. A creative powerhouse, Delamay is well known internationally for her embodied offerings which are fuelled with inspiration and infectious enthusiasm.

Delamay’s dance and performing arts background provided her with a natural progression to teaching yoga with a curiosity to delve deeper into the rhythm of the breath, the flow of the body and the formlessness of meditation. 

Her first love is dance, then yoga so it brings her SO much elated joy to welcome you to this Breath Body Movement Medicine Yoga retreat which is a fusion of Prana Flow yoga, Tridevi tantric cosmology, Hindu philosophy, Yoga Trance Dance, somatic inquiry, Thai Massage and the energetic healing arts.

After a very unpredictable and hectic few years, this is Delamay’s first in person retreat and optional teacher training making it extra special so your mind, body and spirit is in for a real treat! 

We look forward to squeezing you soon!
