    Anything goes and all are welcome – there’s a true community vibe at FERN.  Family and fur friendly, little humans and 4 footed friends are welcome to showcase their personalities. Order from the many choices at Raw Haven Café and kick back among the herbs and veges in the dappled shade, soaking up some Vitamin D.  If you haven’t visited FERN before you will wonder why not.  This communing with nature is sure to recharge your batteries.

Don’t have the time to pilgrimage to India?  For the spiritually thirsty, check in to the Beaconsfeild Ashram.  Following the Sivananda tradition, this beautiful sanctuary was founded back in the 70’s and continues to stay faithful to the core beliefs today.  Stay for a week, a weekend or however long you like – different accommodation options are available to suit your needs. Whether it’s yoga, meditation, kirtan or daily seva – you can immerse yourself in the soul nourishing practices here.

If like me, you’ve become slightly disillusioned about the practice of yoga versus the focus on the latest active wear, then I have the shala for you – unpretentious, down to earth, quality yoga.  That’s what you’ll get at any of the classes at the Beacon Yoga Centre.  Free to get as bendy and lengthy as you like, this shala is rooooomy! I recommend Querida and Donna’s classes for their genuine, open heart instruction.  Check out their website for more details on classes, times and teacher info.
