What Our Students Say About the Yoga Gurukul Retreats…
Simon is one of the very few Senior Iyengar Yoga Teachers north of Sydney. Murwillumbah and its surrounds are one of my favourite places in Australia. The prices that Simon offers at Gurukul makes it THE only affordable yoga retreat in Australia. A yoga retreat for the rest of us! And any class with any Senior Iyengar Yoga Teacher is always a treat…. as it is with Simon Marrocco. Give me more.
Our January yoga weekend retreat starts on Friday 26th January through to Monday 29th. Over the 4 days, there will be 2.5 hrs of postures each morning and 1.5 restorative in late afternoon.
