We have chosen a spacious and unique cottage for our Winter Wellness Retreat. Situated in a quiet pocket of Rye, the house sits on an acre of land and features 8 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and a separate toilet. It offers various cosy lounge areas, some of which will be converted into our yoga and meditation space.

The open plan kitchen and lounge area will be our communal hub for the weekend. Two of the bedrooms are downstairs, and the remainder of the rooms are all located upstairs. All bathrooms will be shared.


We absolutely adore single guests!

Most of our yoga retreats in Victoria have a balanced mix of single guests and couple friends who retreat together. If you are coming alone and have chosen a twin room, we will pair you up with another guest. We will make you feel welcome the moment you arrive. It might be good to know that we don’t host ‘opening circles’ as we encourage people to get to know each other organically – over a cup of coffee/tea or glass of wine.


Apart from an optional visit to the Peninsula Hot Springs, and transportation to the retreat, we’ve taken care of everything else. All meals – healthy, delicious and with an element of indulgence – are included in your retreat as well as all your Yoga and Meditation classes.

''This would have to be one of those experiences that I would highly recommend. An amazing instructor teaching daily yoga, a beautiful house in the Yarra Valley, in-house chefs putting together flavoursome meals, healthy and beautifully presented. It was a great way to unwind, relax, meet new people and practice yoga.

Yarra Valley Retreat

Thank you 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. There was no hectic schedule or pressure to do any activities you didn't want to, so was perfect for a bit of backyard sunning and reading. The food was AMAZING, I can't speak any more highly of the wonderful chefs!

Torquay Retreat

These retreats are the best. A great mix of yoga, wine and other activities. The food is amazing and Cheeky Fox is such a lovely location. Meeting lovely women is a bonus. Highly recommend a Retreat Here retreat!
