We help you find balance in a fast-paced world by offering pop-up and online yoga retreats, livestream classes and corporate yoga programs in Melbourne.

DOES THIS SOUND LIKE YOU?

Before we talk about us, let’s talk about you first. As you’re still on our website reading our story, we figure that you are feeling the pressures of modern-day life. Same here!

We believe you love (or want) to look after yourself by practicing yoga, exercising, and eating healthy. We think you won’t say no to a delicious pizza or glass of wine, and sometimes you have lazy days for sleeping in and Netflix and chill. We hear you!

You love to travel and explore different cultures, meet new people and try different foods. In addition to slowing down and spending time with your family, you enjoy Sunday brunches and dinners with close friends.

Sometimes you feel there are not enough hours in the day and you wonder why time is flying by.

Our company was created to help you retreat from the daily grind so you can reset, find your balance, and take a well-deserved time out for YOU.

HOW WE HELP YOU FIND BALANCE

Our Yoga Retreats in Victoria (and overseas) combine the best of two worlds: Wellness with a pinch of indulgence. You will have the chance to recharge YOUR batteries in beautiful surroundings and connect with likeminded people in real life.

Prefer to practice yoga from the comfort of your home? Don’t have the budget or time to go on a retreat? We get that too! We offer online yoga classes in collaboration with our founder Sab. Her virtual yoga studio is available to anyone who enjoys a home yoga practice.

Want to introduce yoga in your Melbourne workplace? Choose from in-office and livestream corporate yoga classes or hire a yoga teacher for your company event.

And finally, if you’re a bride to be who loves her wine and her wellness, maybe check out our Yoga and Wine Hens parties or book a ‘Morning-Of’ yoga class.

WHY RETREAT HERE?

peace of mind

PEACE OF MIND

We want you to experience exceptional personal service and get the one-to-one attention you deserve. Whether you’re joining a retreat or online yoga class. If you’re booking a private hens or birthday party in Melbourne, we work closely with you to create your ideal event or retreat at a date that suits your group.

Connecting likeminded people through Yoga and wine Retreats

SLOWING DOWN

Inspiring you to slow down and self-care is what we’re all about. We feel there’s too much pressure in today’s fast-paced society to be available 24/7 to reply to emails and online notifications. Multi-tasking is a myth and having 17 ‘tabs’ open in our mind simply isn’t healthy. Slowing down and connecting with your breath through mindful movement will do wonders for your health and wellbeing.

A WORD FROM THE FOUNDER

Retreat Here was founded in 2015 and is the brainchild of Sabijn Linssen (‘Sab’ if you wish!). Initially established as a wellness travel agency, the company rebranded to its current concept in 2018 to offer pop-up Yoga and Wine retreats in Victoria, as well as online yoga classes and workplace yoga in Melbourne.
Born and raised in The Netherlands, Sab worked and lived in the South of France and London, before finally settling in Melbourne, Australia, with her husband. She believes life is all about balance and this reflects in her retreats and events. With more than 15 years of experience in the travel and event industry she is pursuing her dream of running her own business.

HERE’S HER STORY

Retreat Here was created as a passion project inspired by extensive travels, tons of stays at unique places around the world, and most importantly, the belief that people need to take care of themselves. We have never worked so hard in our lives, everyone is pressed for time and challenged by the strains of modern society.

I truly think that happiness derives from a healthy work-life balance, where a temporary time out is crucial to reset body and mind. As much as I love clean eating and yoga & meditation, I am also a strong advocate of slowing down, quality time with friends and family, going offline, admiring the sun rise, and enjoying delicious meals paired with silky wines and flowing conversations. These things are just as important as green juices and exercise.

Retreat Here is my way of helping others find balance in their lives.
