About Us


My Yoga Retreat founder Kara, has been practicing yoga for almost 25 years and has a popular yoga studio in the Gold Coast Hinterland with a wonderful team of teachers.

She is a YTT of 500hrs under the world renowned teacher John Ogilvie and has dedicated her life to helping people discover their potential to create balance, calm and contentment in their lives.

Having hosted more than 30 retreats in the last few years Kara is well-experienced in giving you personalised attention and guidance -  taking you on a journey away from your usual life, showing you ways to implement yoga and meditation practices so that they become a natural part of your daily life.


Merryl is a heart-centred yogi (YTT 350hrs) with a dedicated daily practice under the tall trees on her forest property and is passionate about reconnecting others to the natural world we are part of, and to the wisdom of all those who have walked this beautiful land we practise on; “to know ourselves is to feel our connection to all that there is”. 

On retreat Merryl runs moving and reflective workshops where she will share the beauty and wonder of nature with you and truly support you to slow down and make deeply personal and respectful connections to the environment, to yourself, and to others.  

Merryl's deep love for her fellow humans and the natural world around us is so apparent to all who meet her and this love is interwoven through every moment of our retreats.
