Rise Online Course by Soma Byron
Luxe wellness retreat Soma is set in Byron’s lush hinterland, and offers multi-day retreats with meditation, yoga and coaching surrounded by stunning rainforest views.
It might look familiar if you’ve been tuning into prestige TV – it’s where Nine Perfect Strangers, the adaptation of Liane Moriarty’s eighth novel was filmed, starring Nicole Kidman. And while travelling there for a break and recharge is a bit hard right now, the retreat has launched its first online course to bring the relaxation to you.
Simply called Rise, it centres on meditation and mindfulness to address stress and anxiety in daily life. Soma and Conscious Club founder Gary Gorrow teaches the seven-part, on-demand course: he’s a Vedic meditation teacher, Ayurvedic health coach and mindfulness expert, among other hats.
The course mixes best practices from ancient consciousness exercises and modern science to connect students more deeply with themselves and spark positive change in their routines.
Rise is available online for $349 (to access all seven parts of the course) or as part of a Soma Collective premium membership ($29 per month for a minimum of 12 months).
