WHAT TO EXPECT & RETREAT ITINERARY

Our women’s only Yoga Retreat in the Yarra Valley allows you to take a step back from your day-to-day hustle.

We have been hosting retreats since 2017 and like to think we know a thing or two about creating the perfect yoga holiday with a twist. Our retreats are far from traditional, and give you an opportunity to practice yoga in a down-to-earth environment. There is plenty of time to relax over a cuppa or a wine, and we prefer our guests get to know each other organically rather than starting the weekend with an opening circle.

In addition, our chefs create the most amazing dishes with your wellbeing in mind, but we’re not shy to enjoy the beautiful produce that Yarra Valley has to offer, including the region’s most delicious wines and cheese. Of course all wines are optional!

YARRA VALLEY RETREAT VENUE

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 a lovely bush track to get your morning walk on.

We honestly can’t wait to welcome you here.

WHAT TO WEAR/BRING TO YOUR RETREAT?

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:

  • Your favourite Yoga Mat, if you have one
  • Comfortable yoga wear
  • Walking shoes
  • Indoor slippers
  • Personal toiletries (shampoo, soap and conditioner provided)
  • Book, magazine

TRAVELING SOLO?

Don’t be shy! We love solo travellers!

Most of our yoga retreats in Victoria 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).
