Sarah Bunnell

Live an intentional life

Sarah brings a depth of knowledge and skill from experience and trainings in Dubai, India, Thailand, Philippines, Australia and Bali. She brings a groundedness to her classes, while guiding students awareness inwards. Always a strong focus on the breath, the sensations of the body and the unfoldings in the mind. Becoming the observer of ones direct experience.


Sarah brings a lot of passion to her classes and an immense care to her students. She focuses on a slow mindful practice that encourages self awareness, with a focus on listening to what the body needs in each and every moment.


Her goal as a teacher is to create an environment that fosters:

  • emotional and physical support 

  • an experience of the magic of yoga 

  • personal transformation 

  • gratitude and self awareness

  • empowerment through a strong, healthy open body

  • a lowering of the nervous system stress response

  • healing through the courageous journey inwards

Immersed in nature, nourishing food and healing. What better way to spend your weekend than with an intimate group of like minded people. Space and specific practices for you to get clear on all aspects of your life and being. Movement of stagnated energy from your mind, body and heart. Reigniting your passion and flow with life. 

Casa Warrandyte

Victoria, Australia

The path to Casa Warrandyte incorporates driving along a one-lane dirt road into a section of Warrandyte State Park, in Melbourne’s outer north-east. When you turn off the sealed road and into the state park, and you have birds flying all around you, sunlight piercing through the trees and you see nothing but bush… that’s when you know you’re home. You can leave all the hustle of city life and any work stress behind you.

A stunning 70's Bush Retreat with the perfect balance of comfort and nature. Backing right on to the Yarra River.

For the duration of the retreat, all rooms are shared occupancy. The bedrooms will be maintained as a silent zone for maximum privacy, rest and relaxation.
