Day Retreat: Full Or Half

Are you short on time and cannot join us for the whole weekend. Join us for your special full or half day retreat. You will be surrounded by the tranquillity of nature, and rediscover your inner essence. This is a chance to escape the demands of everyday life and immerse yourself in a restorative experience, sharing the journey with like-minded individuals who seek wellness and self-care.

Give yourself the gift of rejuvenation, serenity, and transformation.

Unwind, recharge, and reconnect with your inner self in a nurturing space that allows you to experience harmony and balance in both your physical and mental realms. Start your journey with a grounding linage based yoga session led by Dave, who will guide you through a series of gentle asana/poses and mindful movements. Build strength, breath, and balance while cultivating a deep sense of inner peace and harmony. Dave will tailor the classes to accommodate all skill levels, ensuring everyone experiences the benefits of this ancient practice. An able-moving body is required.

Now its your time to have a cleansing and invigorating infrared sauna followed by a swim in our natural spring flowing through 32 million old volcanic rocks. 

Through the day retreat, indulge in a wholesome, nutritious and delicious Ayurveda meal crafted by our Food Artist, Aune, Farm to Plate, made with love. Supported by the nourishing food, your body will be replenished, leaving you feeling energised and revitalised. During breaks, take a stroll through our food forest with 350-plus permaculture-designed fruit trees with over 50 varieties. Enjoy the enchanting natural surroundings, connect with the beauty of the environment, and find clarity in your mind. Or hangout in one of our hammocks by the creek and do nothing.

Go beyond space and time. Finish your day with the powerful healing vibrations of sound therapy in our all-timber purpose-built sound shell. Allow yourself to be enveloped in the soothing sounds of ancient instruments, like singing bowls and gongs, expertly played. Experience a deep state of relaxation as the sound waves wash away stress and tension, leaving you feeling centred, rejuvenated, and aligned. Then join us for a cleansing herbal tea and home made sweets before making your way home.

Mt Jukes Eco Village is one truly amazing, beautiful and peaceful place in the middle of stunning nature full of wonderful wildlife, tropical fruits, good weather, kind and hard working people, super tasty food (!) and really nice comfortable tiny houses next to a big majestic Jukes mountain. We instantly felt good there, in very high energy and easygoing relaxing vibes. I would happily go back any time to relax, meditate, be humble with others and my authentic self and just enjoy the beauty of nature. Thank you for creating that space, showing your kindness and hosting us so well! One of the best experiences and definitely a place to visit in colourful Queensland! Visited in August ‘23, still thinking about it and the good memories!:)

Thank you Mount Jukes Eco Retreat for an outstanding visit! This break away to reconnect was just what I needed! Friendly and welcoming hosts, beautiful accomodation that takes in the awesome natural surroundings, delicious and deeply nourishing meals. Dave gently guided us through a form of traditional yoga practice that is very rare today, and a sound healing session gave me some profound insights. Walking through the many different fruit trees, I discovered some fruits that I had not seen or tasted before. The sauna session followed by a refreshing swim in the creek was a winner too. Thank you so much Dave and Aune! I will be back again!

It was an amazing experience on a full day retreat - sauna, yoga/meditation, sound healing and Ayurveda lunch! The Ayurveda meals was delicious! Aune is such a great cook! I would definitely recommend anyone to go at least for a session and see for themselves. It is only around 40 mins drive from Mackay. Thank you Dave & Aune!

Mt Jukes Eco Resort was wonderful 🤗🤩 I have only good things to say!! The cottage smells beautiful of the carved wood. The outdoor bath with view of the mountain is very relaxing. Our hosts very friendly and gifting fresh herbs. Everything you need in the kitchen to cook a 5-star meal. The air is fresh, the water is clean.

About Your Teacher

Dave Deakin has been practising yoga since 2012. He has travelled to India, Bali and Thailand and practised with many world-class teachers. Dave did his teacher training in Bali, where he studied Tantra/Hatha, a lineage-based yoga over 2500 years old, not altered for the audience in the modern world.

"Meditation is one of the main goals of yoga. The best gauge of your yoga practice is how well your life is going. Are you happy, vibrant, and in good health, mentally, physically and emotionally? This is the science of yoga. Be the best version of yourself to live with infinite possibilities. Yoga is built for optimum well-being, not flexibility."
