Celebrate our Vision


The Koorana Centre provides a safe, nurturing and uplifting environment for holistic classes, workshops, therapies and retreats. The space is available to hire. Its programme is focussed on education and development in the creative arts, the healing arts and other holistic practices. It is more than just a building; it aims to bring together a community of people who share and participate in a variety of holistic activities designed to improve health, wellbeing and personal development.

The Koorana Foundation is a charity that dedicates itself to empowering young people through the provision of educational activities and support for parents, teachers and carers. Through a three-day training programme for adults and ongoing mentoring for families and individuals, members of the Foundation offer holistic and creative tools that both adults and young people can use to overcome anxiety and stress, develop personal confidence and self-esteem, build strong relationships and enjoy greater happiness and personal fulfilment. The Foundation understands the importance of ‘creative’ personal development within the home and classroom and offers guidance and support on how to create the best environments in which children and young people can thrive. It believes that children and young people deserve to experience happiness and personal fulfilment during their time in education and have access to all the resources they need.

Words of Gratitude

Elaine Noble ‘I’m a member and find it excellent value. A great way to make new friends and I LOVE the creativity days, it’s always great to have a chance to play!
Trish Smith ‘To describe the experience as out of this world is an understatement. Each morning started with a meditation, so relaxing, and then learning how to use different types of paint was fun. I was really out of my comfort zone but what transpired was incredible.
Sharon Reed ‘The Koorana Centre is the perfect place for yoga. As you enter the building you are enveloped in a sense of peace and positive energy. The beautiful chapel windows create a light and airy space whilst the underfloor heating keep students warm.
Anna Taylor The wonderful energy and the comfortable, warm environment that Gabrielle has created is an ideal space to relax and learn.
Sam Pullen ‘Thank you so much for such an amazing weekend. You have created a beautiful, safe and welcoming space, which made the weekend just wonderful.
Andy Albrecht ‘Just looking at the faces, that should tell you that we all had a great day, creating something special, it’s not only the artwork, but the friendship and togetherness that always makes it such a great day at the Koorana Centre, many thanks, all your hard work made it a very successful and enjoyable day.
Helen Davison ‘Another fabulous day. Made new friends, learnt new skills.’
