Winter Retreat: May 31 – June 3 2018

Each year Balanced Studio teams up with Marcus Hamill to bring you Balanced Retreats, we offer two retreats each year in June and in November with the next being held from May 31 to June 3, 2018.

The Balanced Retreat is for anyone who is ready to transform their life by taking their health and happiness into their own hands.

Nic and Marcus have combined their extensive expertise in holistic health, functional movement, meditation, mindfulness and conscious living and distilled this into practical and actionable knowledge that is easily integrated into your busy daily life.

You’ll return refreshed, rejuvenated and equipped with a set of essential life skills to create balance, health and happiness in your life.


Beginners will learn the simple, graceful and effortless art of Vedic Meditation. Over four sessions you’ll master this profoundly powerful mental technique to eliminate stress and usher in clarity, vitality, creativity and happiness. You’ll return from the retreat, entirely self sufficient in the practice, meaning you’ll be able to meditate anywhere, anytime for the rest of your life. Quite simply, this is a game changer.

Experienced meditators will learn advanced techniques including rounding to take their practice to a whole new level.


Each day experience two sessions of movement, one of which will establish balance and harmony through all of the systems of the body and one which will challenge the nervous system to become more intelligent, strong and efficient. Walk away with an arsenal of daily movement strategies to keep your body flowing with energy and integrity.




Enjoy delicious, seasonal and organic meals. Learn the benefits of whole foods nutrition and walk away from the weekend with dozens of recipes as well as strategies on cleansing, fasting, gut health and preparing awesome food for the week so that you are not spending hours in the kitchen each day.


Utilize a unique fusion of Vedic wisdom and modern science to explore your core values and set actionable goals to guide and facilitate the creation of the life you desire.


There will also be plenty of time to relax and make the most of the stunning surrounds. Enjoy canoeing and paddle boarding on the river, surfing, longs strolls along the beautiful 7 Mile Beach, or simply read a book whilst soaking up the spring sunshine.
