Your home for the weekend is set in the most perfect location to help you restore and recharge.

Missed out? Why not join our Yoga Retreat in Bali or Winter Wellness Retreat in the Yarra Valley.


We have been hosting yoga retreats in Victoria since 2017 and like to think we know a thing or two about creating the most amazing getaways. Whether you join alone (we love solo travellers!) or bring a friend, sister or mother/daughter, we invite you to let go of all external distractions and dedicate a whole weekend to yourself.


We are fortunate to work with the best chefs in the industry who create healthy and delicious meals with your wellbeing in mind. Eating nutritious food can be hard in today’s fast-paced world. Our retreats give you a chance to nourish your body with wholesome meals and hopefully give you some inspiration for the months that follow. Of course, a Retreat Here escape wouldn’t be complete with a little bit of indulgence – and you’ll see some ‘naughty’ treats at our Friday feasting table! As we do believe life is best lived in balance, your Saturday dinner is paired with matching wines. No hard feelings or judgement if you wish to sip on water, tea or kombucha instead.
