Sometimes one just needs to take a step back from daily life and re-connect with themselves, so when Yoga Rhythms invited me along to their annual yoga retreat in the heart of the Glasshouse Mountain’s in exchange to take some photos I simply couldn’t refuse.

The incredible Glasshouse Mountains is made up of 16 steep sided volcanic plugs which have been greatly eroded by weathering over 25 millions years. The Glasshouse Mountain’s Eco Lodge is set in 5 acres of garden and pristine rainforest, and is made up of a 120 year old wooden church and four train carriages.

Driving into the hinterland, I felt the calmness of the beautiful surroundings wash over me. The world wasn’t filled with smart phones, social media, brainwashing advertisements… This world was filled with balance and harmony, a peaceful energy, organic and real.
