Your Host - Zalan Glen
Zalan worked as a consulting engineer for 20 years in both Australia and the U.K. prior to relocating to Hepburn Springs. His interest in wholistic health led to a vegan diet in 1992. He continued with private studies, leading to a Diploma in Shiatsu and Oriental Therapies in 1998, a post graduate Certificate in Nutrition in 2004, and subsequently completed the ISHTA (Integrated Science of Hatha, Tantra and Ayerveda) Yoga Teacher Training course in 2005.
As proprietor of Continental House (now Hepburn Retreat Centre), he has both witnessed and interacted with a broad range of philosophies and teachings, and a diversity of health and healing modalities during the last 20 years.
Zalan presently practises a daily yoga, meditation and vegan raw food regime. Together with Natural Hygiene and Nature Cure principals, these interests form the context and foundation for Hepburn Retreat Centre activities and lifestyle.
I trust you will enjoy your stay, and I look forward to assisting you on the journey to improving your own health in a natural, peaceful way
Best Wishes In peace and health, Zalan
