    How To Get To Our Northern NSW Retreat From The Gold Coast Airport:

    Gold Coast / Coolangatta Airport, Gold Coast is by far the easiest and closest airport to the Retreat Centre is about 46km, and the trip generally takes us 35 – 40 minutes in our car – having said that we know where we are going, and we aren’t looking at the scenery so for guests who are driving, we normally recommend that you allow yourself at least an hour to do the trip. Firstly, it’s that there will be road works, an accident or you may simply end up getting lost, secondly the Tweed Valley is simply stunning, I still remember the first time we drove South from the Gold Coast and I saw the Tweed Valley, the huge Tweed River, Wollumbin (Mt Warning) and the lushness of the Valley, it was simply beautiful, and it’s really wonderful to enjoy the lush scenery of the area without rushing and getting stressed out…

If we are not living in the moment then we're not showing up, Yoga and meditation are my secret weapon and it is my pleasure to share this gift with you.”

  • Rebecca Edwards - Wim Hof

    Bec has a passion for understanding and enhancing the human mind and body. Her background in Exercise Science, Pilates and Myotherapy has now lead her onto a path of breath work methods. Bec is a qualified Wim Hof instructor and oxygen advantage coach. Overall Bec just loves education! She believes knowledge is power, and then applying the knowledge is strength. The combination of both allows you to go beyond what you ‘think’ you're capable of. Balance is the key to life. If we stay in a comfort zone we will head into dis-ease (out of balance) but if we move too much into discomfort (stress all the time!) then we will burn ourselves out. Bec loves to educate people on how to stay in balance. The combination of rest and stress will help you get the best experience out of life!

    Overall Bec loves helping people achieve their goals and finding their drive, passion and path in life. Not letting self limited beliefs hold them back from what they are truely capable of.
