Our Bali Retreat is suitable for all fitness levels no matter how much Pilates, yoga or meditation experience you have!
Coming Home To Your Body Retreats was co-founded by Cassie Thomas and Jessica Maguire in January 2016.
Since 2006 Cassie has been dedicated to a daily practice of yoga, thriving on the physicality of Asana, the wonder of Pranayama, the basic goodness of Yamas and Niyamas and growth that can occur through meditation. She is the owner of Paraka Yoga studio.
It is her belief that yoga has the potential to bring into the lives of those who practice it a greater balance, and greater awareness oof the world at large. Cassie believes that the practice of yoga has the ability to bring increased clarity into daily life resulting in one simply being the best that they can be.
Paraka yoga is based around the teachings of Tirumalai Krishnamacharya.
The word Paraka is derived from the Tasmania Aboriginal word meaning to Blossom. It has meaning in Sanskrit, inhalation, inspiration.
Cassie will be using Vinyasa Flow with emphasis on dynamic movement and flow of breath, meditation and practices of eastern philosophy.
Jessica Maguire is a Physiotherapist, clinical Pilates instructor and Mindfulness Meditation Teacher
On discovering the transformative power of Mindfulness, Jess applied the life-changing tool in the treatment of her patients who were then able to reach their health and fitness goals consistently and improve their physical, mental and emotional health. Emphasising the use of mindfulness meditation, mindful movement, contemplative practices and taking time out to retreat from the hectic pace of every day life, Jess co-created the Coming Home to Your Body Retreats in 2016 with Cassie.
Their weekend and week-long retreats are held in Tasmania, Bali and also New South Wales, and join with other practitioners to offer an unforgettable and life changing experience.
After six years running her own physiotherapy practice in Tasmania, Jess undertook a world-wide sabbatical to delve fully into the world of neuroscience and mindfulness, learning from the best teachers and researchers she could find. Extensive travel through Asia and the USA led her to undertaking Mindfulness Meditation Teacher Certification in Scotts Valley, California with Tara Brach and Jack Kornfield, two renowned meditation teachers, psychologists and authors, influential in bringing eastern meditation practices to the western world.
Jess learned about self-compassion from its original researcher, Dr Kristen Neff and also studied mindful movement and neuroscience with psychotherapist and yoga therapist Bo Forbes in London.
These teachings have helped people free themselves from the suffering of fear, stress, worry and shame for over 2500 years and are supported by the most modern research in neuroscience.
Jess blends modern neuroscience and physiotherapy with ancient wisdom to improve wellness and health through the mind-body connection.

“I love that it isn't all about yoga and pilates. There are heaps of opportunities to learn more about yourself, how you interact in different groups and also about the beautiful culture of Bali.
The activities are varied - so there is something to interest everyone - and very much about the whole person. I loved doing group activities and then also relaxing on my own and in the spa. My favourite moments were taking deep breaths, connecting with different people, the spa!!, the pool and having some me time. I love to travel and immerse myself in different cultures so this retreat gave me the opportunity for this - something I haven't done in a while. I enjoyed the happy hours too!!
I am still growing to love pilates and yoga, but I am sure that will happen. My most surprising revelation was how much I love Bali and her people. Can't wait for this year.” - Toni Popowski
