WHAT TO EXPECT & RETREAT ITINERARY

We believe you deserve to experience a well-balanced Yoga Retreat in 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. 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.

We don’t do ‘opening circles’, we don’t chant and we don’t expect you to get up at 5am for your first yoga class. We prefer to give you a chance to get to know your fellow guest over a coffee or wine, and indulge yourself with a little sleep in.

OUR 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 plenty of bush tracks 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
  • (Warm) comfortable yoga wear
  • Walking shoes
  • Indoor slippers
  • Toiletries as they are not provided
  • Book, magazine

TRAVELING SOLO?

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. We also 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). 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.
