This one-of-a-kind getaway is guaranteed to nurture your soul and pamper your tastebuds, and will be the best Christmas present you can gift yourself (or a friend..)
Is this the best yoga retreat in Victoria? Maybe. We are of course biased, but come join us and see for yourself..
Dates: 16-18 December 2022
Our yoga retreats in Victoria are all about creating authentic connections with likeminded women that go way beyond the retreats. Whether you are joining alone (we love solo travellers!) or want to bring a friend, sister or your mother/daughter, we invite you to let go of all your external distractions and enjoy yoga, beautiful food, delicious wine, and flowing conversations.
We have been hosting retreats since 2017 and like to think we know a thing or two about creating the most amazing yoga retreats. You will nourish your body with wholesome meals and energising yoga classes, and calm your mind with meditation and restorative yin sessions.
In addition, all our retreats are down to earth, and give you plenty of time to relax with a cuppa or a wine. We are so fortunate to work with the best chefs in the industry who create healthy and delicious meals with your wellbeing in mind. Of course, our retreats wouldn’t be complete with a little bit of indulgence – hello cheese and wine!
