Registered Yoga Therapist, Meditation and Mindfulness Teacher, Open Floor International Conscious Dance Teacher, Health & Wellness Guide, Mindfulness and Money Coach
Born in Australia, but an avid and curious traveller on the inner and outer planes, Nicole has been travelling and living throughout Europe and Asia since 2000. It was at the very beginning of this period that she was first introduced to the healing arts of yoga, meditation, and meditative dance.
Meeting these practices and the teachers that embodied the wisdom and teachings behind these practices, was life changing and deeply inspiring for Nicole. She had found her life path. Now it was time to get to work! Since then she has had the great fortune to meet and train with many great teachers around the globe, has been a dedicated practitioner for almost 20 years, been teaching for 13, leading workshops and retreats for over 10 years.
Nicole is a registered Yoga Therapist with the IAYT, International Association of Yoga Therapists, and an Open Floor International Dance Teacher registered with the ICMTA, International Conscious Movement Teachers Association. She also received her Sivananda Yoga Teacher Training certification at an ashram in India, practiced and studied meditation in temples in Japan, and received lay ordination from her main meditation teacher Achariya Doug Duncan in the Namgyal Rinpoche lineage in 2004. She completed her Advanced Yoga Teacher Training with Donna Farhi in 2006, and continues to further her studies and training in Bonnie Bainbridge’s groundbreaking Body Mind Centering (BMC) approach. To work on a deeper level with individuals and specialised groups Nicole completed her 1000 hour Professional Yoga Therapy Certification with Integrated Yoga Therapy, and also went on to complete her coaching certification in 2014. A life long student, she continues to study and practice in all her related fields.
When working with clients and leading classes and retreats Nicole seeks to create an environment that is both nurturing and supportive, inspiring and uplifting. She feels passionate about the benefits of meditation, movement and mindfulness practices and their ability to move practitioners into greater levels of body-mind health and happiness. It is with deep gratitude to all her teachers, students and friends-on-the-path that she continues to learn, grow, and share.

Qualified Chef, Personal Trainer, Mother, Business Owner, Certified in Sports Nutrition & currently studying Wholefood Plant Based Nutrition.
Qualified Chef for 14yrs who has been working alongside Ross and the team at Rosslyn Bay Resort for the past five years.
Mel donned he r first cooking apron at the ripe age of 12, working in a family owned pizza store, she believes it was the teamwork and adrenaline of this fast past working environment that had her hooked. Becoming a Chef was inevitable. Mel’s childhood Gymnastic and Athletics background played a major role in her also becoming a Personal Training and Certified in Sports Nutrition.
Being a new mother to two of the most amazing little boys, it became somewhat instinctual of Mel to educate herself and make more conscious and mindful choices when it came to nutrition, overall health and wellbeing for her and her family.
The past 12 months Mel has been engulfed in her studies on Plant Based Nutrition, learning about diet-related conditions and chronic diseases such as type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease and some types of cancers. Many of these problems are avoidable simply by being more mindful of what it is your fuelling yourself with.
Mel has now transitioned herself over to a Wholefoods Plant Based Lifestyle and has never felt better, energy, weight, clarity, clear skin and just overall outlook on life. She hopes to now share with others by simply changing one ingredient for another you can make drastic changes to your overall health and wellbeing.
Prevention b4 Prescription
Practicing Naturopath, Nutritionist and Herbologist
Growing up in Central Queensland, Stacey’s parents ran their own business, which was principally based on Regenerative Farming; and focused on educating farmers on how to increase the health of their soil, pastures and animals using more holistic models. She suspects this was what led her down the path of Naturopathy, as the principles of Natural medicine mirror many of those which underpin Regenerative Farming.
After school, Stacey kept her inner gypsy very happy by travelling around and exploring the world before settling in Melbourne to study. After graduating in 2011, her and her husband moved back to sunny Queensland where she owned and operated a successful multi-modality wellness clinic, Gladstone Holistic Health; and in late 2015, she became a Mum (her proudest achievement yet!) and started a new business, Cultivating Wellness.
Stacey now has two beautiful children, a dog and some chooks, and lives on a small farm which follows the principles of Regenerative farming, Nutrition farming and permaculture.
As a practicing Naturopath, Nutritionist and Herbalist; Stacey enjoys the challenges of clinical practice and takes clients Australia wide. She is also the nutrition consultant (aka the foodie chick!) for Off the Track Training, which is a global access organisation focused on fitness, food and motivation designed to ensure long term sustainable health and well-being for people in isolation (or anywhere for that matter) whether they are in rural outback Australia or inner city suburbs.
Stacey is nature obsessed, and endlessly blown away by the intelligence of nature and human physiology.
It’s the LOVE that we share,
and the way that we CARE.

“On behalf of my father, sister and myself, thank you. The transformation of mum in her mind, body and soul since your retreat has been amazing. The retreat has released all her stress and all she has been holding onto. It is so humbling to see her happy and peaceful. We normally have small chats on the phone with her, she rang me on the first day of the retreat while on break and talked non-stop for fifteen minutes about everything she had done and was going to do; I could not get a word in! She was so excited about all she was learning. So to you both and all the staff at the retreat a big heartfelt thank you. What you all contribute together and in what you offer at the retreat is wonderful.”

“Thanks heaps, Ross and everyone at Rosslyn Bay Wellness Retreat. What an amazing experience and the group of women that I shared the weekend with are such great support already. I went to my first Toastmasters! (Speaking on my behalf, I would have NEVER gone before the retreat. I was so scared of public speaking!!!) The positive thinking is truly working! I did the best job interview in my life, last Tuesday, and got the job on the spot! I am talking, joking and smiling to people out and about around town. (I haven’t done that in a long time.) And my kiddies and hubby are happy to have the ‘old’ me back again. I am handling everyday stress soooo much better.”

I thank you all for being such wonderful guides in this confusing journey we call life!”

“The retreat experience provided a safe and comfortable atmosphere to experience and put into practice practical and life-changing learnings. The program is perfectly balanced to engage participants across health, nutrition, mind and motivational modalities… I walked away from the retreat with the confidence that my life can change in a positive way… I was supported and encouraged, which made sharing easy and gave me a sense of confidence and belonging… I have new purpose and goals as a result of my learnings, and would encourage men and women alike to extend themselves into a retreat, they will walk away renewed and motivated with a solid practical plan to improve themselves, their family and friends.”
