2. From Adelaide: Yoga and Wine Day Retreat
After being greeted by your local guide, it's time to leave the city behind as we make our way to the Fleurieu Peninsula. First up today, you will meet holistic healer Sue Moore from Devine Feather at her studio for a 90-minute Tibetan sound bowl meditation. This ancient healing modality stimulates stress relief and the elimination of toxins. After hearing and feeling the sounds of the singing bowls, your mind, body, and soul will be blissfully relaxed.
Next, we'll continue our search for zen in nature as we take a 3.8 km walk along part of the Coast to Vines Trail. Meander through the postcard-perfect landscapes soaking up the serenity of the McLaren Vale. Arrive at our next destination, Serafino Wines, where a local yogini awaits. Set amongst a tranquil lake, gorgeous vines and 200-year-old gum trees, roll out your yoga mat for a one-hour class for all levels. Of course, it wouldn't be right to come here and not have a tasting, so once you have rehydrated, we will head to the tasting room to sample some of their premium drops.
Next, take a short drive to Gemtree Wines. Trailblazers in the biodynamic wine scene, they share our passion for regeneration and have planted more than 50,000 trees in a wetland beyond the vineyard. Hear their story and connect with nature on a short guided walk on the Gemtree Eco-Trail.
Having worked up an appetite, it's time to relax during a gourmet picnic lunch of fresh Fleurieu Peninsula produce. Next, it's time to add a little indulgence because, after all, wellness is about balance. Head to the vineyards tasting room with beautiful views for a wine flight of six Gemtree biodynamic and certified organic wines. Feeling wonderfully relaxed, set off for Adelaide, where the new and improved version of yourself will arrive at around 4 pm.
