Welcome everyone! My name is Alli, and I am excited to introduce you to Living Waters Sanctuary. I am providing Christ – centred stretch and flow yoga classes on the beautiful Sunshine Coast in Queensland, as well as online classes for those who are unable to attend in person classes. My classes are gentle and restorative, and encourage the use of yoga props such as bolsters, blocks and straps, enabling people with a range of physical abilities and levels of experience, to safely participate.
Living Waters Sanctuary welcomes and honours everyone, wherever you may be in your faith journey. I invite you to step away from the demands of life and enter an oasis of peace and tranquillity. My heart is to provide a safe space where you can practise mindful movement and breathing whilst being invited to connect with Jesus through guided prayer, worship and meditation. A place where you are invited to experience God’s love and peace.
I have worked as an Occupational Therapist for many years and I am passionate about promoting health and wellbeing. My intention is for people to come away from classes feeling refreshed and more flexible in their bodies while gaining renewed energy and vitality in their body, mind, heart and soul. I would love to see this have a ripple effect and spread into the wider community, providing opportunities for people find connection and a sense of belonging.
In 2021, I am launching Living Waters Sanctuary’s Soul Care Retreats in the gorgeous Sunshine Coast Hinterland, and I hope they will become a biannual event!
These Soul Care retreats stem from my passion to promote health, well-being and connection with others, and with God. My prayer for you is that you will be nurtured and refreshed body, mind, heart and soul during these retreats.
Retreats will be inclusive of luxury accommodation in single or twin rooms, wholesome and heart-warming meals and snacks, and a range of activities, including of course gentle and restorative Christ-centred stretch and flow classes!
Through Living Waters Sanctuary, I also hand pour and sell beautiful scented 100% soy wax candles in a range of sizes and artisan crafted fragrances and teach fun and interactive candle making workshops.
I have a deep desire to restore hope and provide a future for vulnerable children living in poverty, many who have experienced horrific circumstances. In 2020, I began supporting a very special charity in Bali, The Bali Street Mums and Kids Project, and through the sale of my candles, I was able to donate over $2000 to assist them with their wonderful work in the slum areas of Bali as they work tirelessly to break the vicious cycle of poverty.
At present, I sell my candles locally on the Sunshine Coast and offer pick- up and delivery service in my local area. In 2021 however, I hope to be able to expand my candle business to a wider community, and provide freight options to enable delivery within Australia.
I will be continuing to support Bali Street Mums and Kids Project by donating 50% of my candle sale profits to them.
