The Wellbeing Centre
Below the carpark, under a canopy of shady trees, is our beautiful Wellbeing Centre. Sometimes the spiritual program schedules classes and courses here, especially intensive meditation practices which are very suited to its peaceful and natural atmosphere. Our regular yoga classes happen here in the airy light hall and many other groups love to hire the facility for their various activities.
Hire the Wellbeing Centre
The Wellbeing Centre features glass panels overlooking a treetop canopy, which floods the space with natural light. White walls, timber floors and wrap-around verandas make it a beautiful, private venue for group hire.
