Tidal Dreamings Surf and Yoga Retreats
The energy that flows within us and around us moves in natural rhythms – just like the tidal ebb and flow of the ocean. Tidal dreamings is the representation of this energy and the ability in all of us to consciously connect with the energy or prana that governs all life.
We invite you on this journey to experience the power of a surf and yoga retreat for yourself. Whether it is the physical challenge of learning to surf, the centering of a daily yoga and meditation practice, the nourishment of a pure and healthy diet or simply the reassurance of friendly dinner conversation!
A surf and yoga retreat cannot help but to enhance your life.

Summer is well and truly on its way in Australia, and after 6 months in the tropics I'm excited to be bringing you this newsletter from my homeland.
I certainly have a lot to reflect on with the last 9 months of travel and adventure through Tasmania, Hawaii, Byron Bay, Indonesia, Thailand, Hong Kong, Western Australia and finally Bali once more. I have visited inspiring and powerful places, surfed great new locations and met amazing people. Although in essence I'm really on a journey into self. Exploring energy and understanding the relationship between our mind and the energetic manifestations in and around us, has allowed me to start aligning much more with my authentic self.
For me it has created more space for true heart expansion and of course allows me bring even more perspective and valuable teachings to the surf and yoga retreats.
Creating this space for much needed reflection the biggest goal of passing on my surf school after 12 years, to my older brother Shane.
Now with these upcoming retreats, I have more to share about my perspectives, focusing on, but not limited to, YOGA and surfing.
I have also started a blog to stimulate more ideas and discussion as I move along through my travels. I would love it if you can join me there. For now I would like to let you know what we have on offer for the upcoming months and also some juicey tips about food, music, art and sustainability that other beautiful, authentic, connected and conscious beings are creating all around the globe.

We just finished our Amazing Stradbroke Island Retreat.
Here's what Susie O'Brien had to say about it:
"I booked this retreat with the intention to spoil myself and get my surfing stoke back. The retreat has definitely helped me achieve this! The awesome facilities and venue, fantastic group of people, fun and meaningful activities combined with AMAZING food ensured the weekend gifted me with more than I had ever imagined.
I have learned a lot and my fond memories will sustain me for a long time. Thank you!"

I came across this surfing sister's artwork in a shop window in Kauai, Hawaii and fell in love with her prints immediately. I feel she is embodying the feminine essence of surfing, infused with the vibrant nature and richness of Kauai's energy. Enjoy.
