At Nirvana Wellness Sanctuary you can enjoy quiet seclusion in one of Australia’s most spectacular, natural,
Nirvana Wellness Sanctuary and Leadership Development Centre is an undertaking of The Health Institute Australia and the retreat home of Shanti Yoga.
The property consists of 70 hectares with the twin terrains, of both rural, rolling, undulating, dairy country and its own rain-forest, and is a complete retreat from the outside world. Situated in the hinterland of the Gold Coast, approximately 8kms from Beechmont, Nirvana is secluded, set in the extraordinary, natural beauty of South Eastern Queensland’s coastal mountain range, and provides the tranquility and privacy for retreatants to deepen their feeling of wellbeing. Conveniently located only 50 minutes north of Coolangatta airport and 1 hour south of Brisbane airport, the peace and tranquillity of Nirvana gives you the feeling that you could be a million miles away. The facility is run with a focus on renewal energies, using water from the underground spring, gas, bio-energy generators, solar panels and lenses for converting sunlight to energy and permaculture and rain water to sustain the garden, and provide healing, resources, education and opportunities.
Nirvana Wellness Sanctuary conducts its own contemplative programs and group retreats under the guidance of Shanti Gowans and affiliated teachers throughout the year. Nirvana Wellness Sanctuary primarily provides meditation, yoga, ayurveda, herbal medicine, nutritional advice, detoxification and rejuvenation therapies together with spiritual teachings.
The centre is available for hire to groups who have compatible aims, objectives and practices to Nirvana, for their own events. People from any contemplative tradition who have a well established practice are welcome. The elegant and non-sectarian atmosphere of the Nirvana Wellness Sanctuary has made it an ideal environment for hosting a wide variety of programs and gatherings for small groups. These could include contemplative retreats for any religious tradition, human potential workshops, yoga intensives, body work training, reunions etc. It is a perfect setting for educational programs and spiritual retreats for weekends and week-long activities.
