Words of Gratitude

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’.

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.’

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!’

Helen Davison

‘Another fabulous day. Made new friends, learnt new skills.’

Anna Taylor 

The wonderful energy and the comfortable, warm environment that Gabrielle has created is an ideal space to relax and learn.
