DOWN-TO-EARTH WOMEN’S YOGA RETREATS IN VICTORIA, GREECE & BALI

We believe all women deserve to experience the magical movement practice that is yoga. We also believe nobody should ever feel they are not skinny enough, flexible enough or strong enough to do yoga.

Our women’s only yoga retreats in Victoria – Australia, Greece and Bali are far from traditional. We offer a different kind of retreat experience. There’s no chanting or opening circles, and we won’t take you through any chakra cleansing or divine goddess journeys. We do think you are a goddess, but we’ll tell you so when you’re having a well-earned cocktail by the pool after your 3pm Pilates session. It’s not that we have anything against traditional yoga retreats, it’s just not our jam…

Since 2017, our yoga retreats have given women a chance to step away from the daily grind in order to rejuvenate and unwind. We love sharing healthy meals & stories at the dinner table as much as we enjoy guiding you through your daily movement & meditation practice. Retreat schedules are well-balanced with ample free time. Our goal is to help you enjoy the finer things in life: yoga, sunsets, genuine connections, Pilates, massages, and amazing food paired with delicious wine – or poolside cocktails/mocktails.

And just so we are clear, we welcome all women/womxn.

BEHIND THE SCENES AT OUR NOT SO SERIOUS WOMEN’S ONLY YOGA RETREATS


 

WHAT OUR GUESTS SAY

The 2023 Bali retreat was the third I’ve done with Retreat Here. I’ve another three more booked across the next 12 months. Sab is unpretentious and welcoming, with all levels of yoga accommodated. The catering is always amazing, regardless of which venue we are at. From the Victorian bush, to Bali beaches, and even a city -day retreat, there’s a destination for everyone. I’ve made great friendships through socialising, but also get to have solo time. Thanks Sab. You’re my go-to for yoga retreats.

Back from a totally relaxing retreat in Bali with Retreat Here. The venue was amazing. The food was delicious and of course there were the cocktails! Sab’s daily yoga sessions were varied and fun. And I made a group of new friends. Highly recommend!

It’s all about Balance… Be prepared to relax and enjoy!! Thank you to our beautiful Sab for the most blissful yoga retreat in Bali. Sab provides high quality yoga catered to the mood and mindset of her guests for all varied levels & Pilates uplifting (literally my butt) & invigorating. The carefully planned schedule was absolutely perfect allowing plenty of YOU time whether it be massages by the pool or a bintang, reading a book in peace or cocktails with plenty of laughter, adventuring out or chilling with the girls. The venue was perfect, our host/staff incredibly accommodating, the plant based food exquisite & plentiful and the friendships made with my fellow yogis memorable and life lasting. What an amazing group of incredible women to experience this beautiful adventure together. To take time out just for me was one of the best decisions I’ve made & with Sab’s support, guidance & making this all about you, I felt peace & a clearer mindset. It helped me feel relaxed, refreshed rebalanced & reinvigorating. This is my 3rd Retreat with Sab & Retreat Here. I can’t highly recommend her enough. With the care & thought she puts into her retreats & how she has bought such a positive change into my life. Thank you Sab for helping me find my Zen & some much needed ME time, I can’t wait for Greece 2024 🙏

Retreat Here is my go to recommendation for yoga retreats. I have returned from an amazing time at the inaugural Bali retreat which was held in Uluwatu. Sab brought the most fabulous group of women together for the week which consisted of lots of conversations by the pool, daily yoga, pilates, massages, gorgeous food, cocktails and plenty of laughter.As usual, the classes were balanced and well paced for a range of levels. The accommodation was stunning and I returned feeling relaxed with some fantastic new relationships that have continued beyond the retreat.If you have any concerns as a solo traveller, there is absolutely nothing to worry about. Sab is welcoming, warm and always manages to create the perfect environment for everyone to thrive and get what they need from the retreat.

This would have to be one of those experiences that I would highly recommend. It was beautifully organised with an amazing yoga instructor Sab. The Venu in the Otways was simply pure bliss. We had yoga before dinner on the day you arrived. The next day we practice more yoga in the morning before breakfast and a simply relaxing session before dinner at night. The rest was your time to relax, unwind and simply do what you want to do. It's you retreat! The private Chef cooked up delicious Vegan flavoursome meals that were presented beautifully. This retreat is a excellent way to unwind, relax, detox, meet new people and take up a great practice, yoga. If you are a wanting to to try something new like yoga or love yoga I highly recommend Sab @retreathere. You will not be disappointed.

Sab is a wonderfully vibrant and humble host who truly goes out of her way to make each of her retreat guests feel comfortable, relaxed and connected to their own intentions and desired from the experience. With well thought out yoga sequences and sessions integrated into the retreat, she ensures that each of her guests is grounded and benefits holistically from all the aspects of yoga - including relaxing yin yoga, beautiful morning flows, deeply relaxing yoga nidra and opportunities to explore different methods of asana and mindfulness. This retreat is for anyone that loves yoga (and amazing food/wine)! But also for those who may be new to the practice, as she skillfully guides and facilitates connection to the self and your own experience of each asana/flow. Sab thoughtfully holds space for each of her retreat guests, encouraging true self love and personal time through the abundance of opportunities to connect meaningfully with others, indulge in delicious and nutritious meals, giggle over a glass of bubbles, but also time to just be (however that looks for each of us), with plenty of space for you time. Her enthusiastic and encouraging nature means there is no pressure or expectations, other than making the most of this time for yourself! I truly recommend this retreat to anyone seeking some time away from their busy lives to just be, connect with other wonderful women, find embodiment through yoga and relaxation at its best! Thanks so much Sab, I will definitely be coming to your retreats again! xox

I have been on multiple retreats now through Retreat Here and will continue to do so as each retreat is fantastic - they are thoughtfully scheduled, with a great balance between unscheduled time, classes and group socialisation time. Sab is genuine and welcoming and you can easily attend solo, knowing that the other attendees are going to be like minded and the company enjoyable.The most recent retreat held down in the Mornington Peninsula was a delight. The venue was outstanding and Sab's classes catered to all levels of proficiency, as always. The included meals were a highlight, as was the location.I highly recommend Retreat Here if you are looking for an extremely well run yoga escape.

Had a fabulous time at this women's only yoga retreat. The food was delicious, the accommodation and surrounds beautiful and the yoga restoring and energising. Oh, and the delicious wine and cocktail making class were good too. Sab sets a really lovely vibe - the whole weekend felt both relaxed and decadent. Have already booked the next one! Highly recommend.

Sab (The Founder) was welcoming, knowledgeable and so much fun to retreat with. The food and wine/ cocktails were amazing and everyone was so impressed with the balance between wellness and having cheeky fun. We had freedom to explore the area / alone time / laughs together at the dinner table and structured well thought out yoga classes that was ultimately body healing and relaxing.

I had a fabulous time on this retreat and am already looking to book in the next one! Sab has created a truly unique experience that I can’t recommend highly enough. The yoga was thoughtfully curated, food amazing and delicious and you couldn’t get a more beautiful setting than the Yarra Valley. Thanks Sab, I felt truly relaxed and rejuvenated!

What can I say, Sab is amazing!! From the moment we arrived at Cheeky Fox Retreat we were able to switch off and relax. Our yoga sessions were tailored to the level of the group, with options to advance if the individual needed. The food was amazing, so full of flavor and yummy! Thank you Sab, we will be back!

I had the most wonderful time at this retreat! Sab is extremely organised and caring, really made the weekend feel special and a space to switch off. I highly recommend this retreat and look forward to attending another in the future. Also, the food was divine!!!
This would have to be one of those experiences that I would highly and confidently recommend. It was tastefully organised with an amazing yoga instructor Sabin, and daily yoga sessions indoor and outdoor, complimented with great venue, The Cheeky Fox retreat. A beautiful house in the Yarra Valley, daily in house chefs putting together such flavoursome meals, healthy and presented beautifully. Great activities were planned for each day, life drawing session, winery visits and lunches. Great way to unwind, relax, detox, meet new people and take up a great practice, yoga. If you are a foodie, wine lover and wanting to to try something new like yoga or love yoga I highly recommend @retreathere.

Thankyou Sab for hosting such a wonderfully relaxing weekend! The yoga was just what I needed, and it was great to try a variety of classes (yin, flow, nidra, and sound healing). There was no hectic schedule or pressure to do any activities you didnt want to, so was perfect for a bit of backyard sunning and reading. The food was AMAZING, I cant speak any higher of the wonderful chefs from @madame_feasts who provided delicious canapes, mains and desserts all paired with perfect wines. The venue at the Summer House was beautiful, and nice and close to the beautiful coastline for beach walks. I would come back again in a heartbeat!!

Highly recommended experience! The yoga and wine retreat day tour with Sab was amazing and I came back home that day with a wide smile on my face, my heart filled with good vibes and my mind nourished with good information about Yarra Valley wines and the wine industry. Melbourne’s countryside and Yarra Valley have so much to offer and discover!.... thanks Sab for organizing these amazing trips, such an interesting opportunity to have fun, learn and discover. Yoga and wine retreats are an innovative combination of outdoor yoga (or in case of rain, barrel room yoga!), wine degustations and stunning landscapes.The logistics of the trip was impeccably organised by Sab plus our van driver was a very friendly lady, responsible and knowledgeable. When we arrived at the first stop, we had a beautiful yoga class taught by Sab, I can tell she is the warmest person, her class was inclusive to all levels, and it doesn't matter if you are new at yoga or regular practitioner, everyone will enjoy this session !!! Sab is a sweet and caring teacher.After the class we had the first wine tasting guided by an expert sommelier.Later, we visited a second vineyard with a cozy restaurant settled just in the middle of the green vines, what and amazing panorama!! We enjoyed a delicious lunch with a glass of wine of our choice, that was a great treat! (You have options to cover different dietary needs, food is delicious and dish presentation is gourmet quality.)Finally, we went to a third place where we had a final wine tasting at a large table with all the beautiful ladies participating in the retreat.Personally, I had nobody to accompany me on this adventure, so I went there by myself but I never ever felt lonely. The rest of the group were so nice and friendly ! You have a chance to meet new people, have chats and tons of fun and laughs. Plus, Sab is always there willing to help you when you need it.Last but not least, looking at the price of the yoga and wine tour and the inclusions, it really is great value.Like I said above, I highly recommend this yoga retreat with Sab and I will repeat it as soon as possible!Much loveCecilia

I went on this yoga retreat know one other lady plus of course Sab - I came away having forged some lovely friendships with 5 other ladies as well. The Summer House is absolutely perfect for this retreat location, the food cooked up on Saturday by our personal chefs was amazing and the laughs and of course wine and yoga was just what we all needed. I can't wait to do it all again in March 🙂

A wonderful weekend with Sab and a fabulous group of ladies I had never met before! It doesn't get much better than a Retreat Here Yoga & Wine Retreat! The Summer House in Torquay was beautiful and the food was amazing! Apart from being an awesome yoga instructor, Sab ensured everyone got what they wanted from the weekend. Lots of laughs, time to relax (be it a nap, a walk or time to read a book), a couple of wines with dinner and of course, plenty of yoga. I had the most enjoyable time and I can't wait for the next retreat in March 2021!

If you're looking for a relaxing getaway that won't cost a fortune, look no further. I've been lucky enough to go on two yoga and wine retreats with retreat here. The first was in Nov 2018 at the Yarra Valley lodge and the second, which I won as a door prize, was for the galloping retreat at Balgownie Estate last weekend. Both retreats were well organised, the location, food, wine & yoga were all superb. It was so lovely to just relax, meet and spend time with like-minded people. Sab, Claire & Bethany you're all doing an amazing job and I wish you luck for all your future events. Looking forward to booking in another retreat some time soon! 🙂

I recently attended a yoga and wine day trip to the Bellarine Peninsula with Retreat Here. From the moment I expressed an interest in joining this excursion, I found Sabijn and her team to be very professional, welcoming and accommodating. The day itself was well organised, fun and filled with delicious wines and food of a very high standard. I look forward to attending many more of the events organised by the team and would recommend this event for a nice weekend escape, fun with friends and the perfect balance of yoga and wine (together, at last! 🙏🍷!!)

Retreat Here organised a fabulous retreat for our business Mums Who Wine in Daylesford. Sab made it absolutely seamless, she was attentive, punctual and always available to assist. The manager of the venue when we attended the retreat even made comment that Sab was the best agent he had ever dealt with, making it so easy on their end. Very thankful and could not recommend Retreat Here more highly.

Very quick to assist us and provided a lot of great ideas!We were not looking for a Wellness Retreat ourselves, but more of a relaxation holiday (I suppose that is kind of a wellness retreat..), the quotes and itinerary provided was exactly what we were looking for, and easily updated when we had other thoughts or ideas.Highly recommend!
