We think 2022 will be the ‘Year of Retreats’, and we believe we’ve got the perfect one lined up for you!
You’re invited to a relaxing and rejuvenating Women’s Yoga Retreat in Yarra Valley. Our yoga escapes are all about making genuine connections that go way beyond the retreat. Whether you are travelling solo (we love!) or want to bring your mother, daughter, sister or friend, please join us for a weekend of yoga, amazing food, delicious wine, great conversations, plenty of laughter and much more.
We believe you deserve to experience a well-balanced Yoga Retreat in the Yarra Valley that is designed to help you rejuvenate and take care of YOU. Nourish your body through movement and healthy meals, stimulate your mind with meditation and a fun art class, and nurture your soul by immersing yourself in Kinglake’s beautiful landscape.
We have been hosting retreats since 2017 and we like to think we know a thing or two about creating the perfect yoga holiday. Our retreats give you an opportunity to practice yoga in a down-to-earth and fun environment, with plenty of time to relax over a cuppa or a wine. In addition, our chefs create the most amazing dishes with your wellbeing in mind, and we’re not shy to enjoy the beautiful produce that Yarra Valley has to offer, including the region’s most delicious wines.
Thursday 7 April or 19 May ’22
For those wanting a longer getaway and ease their way into the retreat, the Thursday night add-on is an excellent option. Total cost per person is $150, self-catering. There’s a great restaurant nearby that offers takeaway and dine-in. We’ll be waiting for you (probably with a glass of wine!).

We’ve lost count of the number of times we’ve hosted a retreat at Cheeky Fox Retreat and with good reason. This beautiful Kinglake home offers amazing views, more than 50 acres of private bush and a sense of tranquility you just don’t get in Melbourne metro. The house features 5 bedrooms, all with a queen bed and single bed, 3.5 bathrooms and a master bedroom with ensuite that we will convert into our Yoga and Meditation space (also with views over the ranges!). There’s a private cinema, a cute library den where you can retreat yourself, solar heated pool, and plenty of bush tracks to get your morning walk on.
We honestly can’t wait to welcome you here.
You will get a full itinerary nearer the time but to give you an idea, here is a list of pretty much the only things you should pack:
Don’t be shy! We love solo travellers!
Most of our yoga retreats have a great mix of guests who travel alone or friends who have paired up. Also, we get quite a few mother-daughter duos! If you are planning to retreat with us on your own, we can either pair you up with another female solo guest in a twin room, or you can book a single room (if still available).
Furthermore, if you book a twin room we’ll make sure to introduce you to each other prior to the yoga retreat so you have the chance to get to know each other before sharing a room together.
All inclusions as per the schedule are incorporated in the prices below.
Your host and yoga instructor for this yoga retreat in Yarra Valley is our founder Sabijn Linssen (Sab).
Sab was born in The Netherlands and has lived in Melbourne since 2012. Following a succesful career in the Travel and Event industry, she decided it was time to pursue her lifelong dream of being her own boss. She founded Retreat Here in 2017 and also created Sabijn Linssen Yoga (SLY) in 2019.
It is her absolute passion to help women feel at their best and giving them space to self care, which is why she loves creating and hosting retreats, and teaching weekly yoga classes with SLY.
As a qualified 200-hr Vinyasa yoga instructor with a strong yoga practice since 2008, Sab will provide modifications and variations to beginners. Her classes are a mix of creative slow flows and moving meditations.
She has also completed a 60-hr Yin teacher training, a 20-hr Yoga for Anatomy training and is about to embark upon a Pilates Teacher Training (which she hopefully has completed by the time you are reading this!).
