Welcome to Swan Cove
We are Kirsten Mackintosh and Tony Beaman and we believe in holistic health, not just physical, but emotional, mental and spiritual. This is something Yogis have known for centuries.
This is a life we are passionate about, we love it and we wouldn’t want it any other way. We believe everyone should find their bliss- what makes their heart sing. Because if you are joyful this energy will radiate to those around you.
