EXPERIENCE THE BLUESTONE RETREATS FRAMEWORK
Harness your potential
Are you ready to break through your own barriers and liberate yourself from day-to-day stress, and limited and negative thought patterns? The Bluestone Retreat experience is set up to promote your own growth and self-development as well as building connection and community through the experiences including the fire pit and cold water ice bath.
The best bit, is that you'll go home feeling grounded, centred and energised with a renewed sense of what is possible for you and a tool kit of techniques to use in your daily life.
HOT & COLD WATER THERAPY
Release your inner Wim Hof
Release your inner Wim Hof as we use cold water therapy and heat therapy in our iconic 'Fire and Ice' process to upgrade the body's stress response. First we'll spend time in the Sauna. This dilates your blood vessels, causing you to cool down quicker when you then jump into ice-cold water.
We then use Breathwork to harness the power of the fire and ice after the ice immersion, after which you are free to re-enter the sauna. Each individual's cold exposure is timed by stopwatch and managed closely by Katherine, a qualified fire and ice instructor. Staying within the time limits will ensure you stay within the safe operating physical 'training zone' for your body.
What to expect
Led by certified Yoga Teacher and Breath Coach Katherine Howlett, you will learn a toolkit of scientifically proven breathwork techniques and ancient and modern research into heat & cold exposure to increase your overall health, vitality, sense of connection and life longevity.
Yoga Bodywork Styles:
Bhakti, Kundalini, Hatha, Vinyasa Flow, Yin, Yoga Nidra for Sleep Restoration
As the foundation to our practice, you'll learn to use your breath to upgrade your nervous system, brain chemistry, respiratory and cardiovascular health.
Focussed yoga flows to connect your breath to your posture work to internalise awareness, warm up the body, strengthen, tone and detoxify.
Upgrade your mindset through evidence-based breath and mindfulness practices designed to help you harness your true potential & thrive.
Sauna heat therapy
In our wood-fired barrel sauna, we will be using alternating heat and cold therapies to boost brain function, promote weight loss and optimise wellbeing.
Cold water therapy
Embrace your inner Wim Hof with ice baths and wild swimming to strengthen the parasympathetic & sympathetic nervous system, focus the mind. Increase endorphins and more.
Make friends for life through our community focussed approach and support. Commune around the fire pit each night and enjoy meals together.

REGENERATIVE HYPER-LOCAL WILD FORGAGED FOOD
Delicious chef-prepared food
Our regenerative, hyper-local and simple food demonstrates a way of eating that continues the traditions of the past and supports our shared future. As we cultivate and restore the wellbeing of our planet Earth, we cultivate and restore the wellbeing within ourselves.
Our 'Soil to Gut' Menu
To grow and eat in a way that serves the health of people and the planet.
We journey well beyond the farm to table concept and delve deeper into our soils and our gut. We believe that the soils in which we grow food and our guts in which the food ends up, are one and the same.
Since the health and contents of the soil will inevitably end up in our bodies, we should treat them with the same care. Our locally sourced, home-grown and wild foraged ingredients reflect how we nourish the land and local environment. We keep our menus simple so that our incredible ingredients can take the stage.
